Did you do any type of a breakin the first couple hundred like the manual said, the occasional full throttle like it said or just drove normal?
I was gonna ask if you put synthetic in early.
It may be an old myth, but I've been taught to never do that. Don't touch the factory oil.
Let it wear in for at least 5000 miles.
First thing I thought when I read the opening post was I bet he put synthetic in at insanely low miles.
Ya did just that.
