i started to do oil changes every 7500 miles now instead of the 15k suggestion.
What else can i do?
Oil changes are just the start.
Don't forget regular coolant, diff, tranny, brake fluid, and air filter changes. Toss in spark plugs and possibly fuel filter and o2 sensors as you get closer to 100k.
At some point you're going to have to change your thermostat, water pump, radiator hoses, and possibly radiator too. Some people choose to perform cooling system work preemptively.

That really should be the bulk of it.
