Re: Engine 3.8

Congrats on the purchase. I should have mentioned in my earlier post that I have never had to add oil between changes. Maybe mine wasn't built on a Friday or maybe there were some bad batches of rings that got installed. No telling, but the problem does seem to be hit or miss.

Re: Engine 3.8

Thanks for the optimistic experience you have had. Again I have only put on 3000 miles since I purchased it and no oil problems yet. I hope the yet will not occur ! I plan on changing the oil every 3000 miles anyway even though they say it is not necessary that often according to the manufacturer and the supplier of the oil. 5 - 20 is a little thin, but I am not the engineer and I am not so bold to believe u know better. So far it is holding up under hard driving I have been doing last weekend !

Thanks again for your input .
