Default oil change on my honda accord 98 lx?

Hi y'all! I don't have an owner's manual for my honda accord 98. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if this car needs an oil change a 3000 miles. I mean, that's like the usual for a lot of cars, but I was reading that a lot of the newer, ( I know 98 is not really new but it's late 90s) cars don't need it that often. Anyway, anybody with this type of car that could tell me if I should change it at every 3000 miles? Please let me know if you have the owner's manual answer. Thank you!

Thanks you guys! I think I do use synthetic oil. Not really sure what other kind of motor oil there is?

Yes, you should change the oil in any vehicle every 3000 miles. You should only go over 3000 miles if you are using synthetic oil.

Normal is 3000-5000 miles. Every 3000 if you drive your car hard.

EDIT: There is conventional, semi-synthetic, and full synthetic.
