as far as your motor. might not be a bad idea to pull the valve covers off and even the pan to check up close. but I would assume that the motor doesn't have much life left ot it
but depends a lot on how you drive it as well.......... I beat on mine....lol
Weird, now getting oil on the driveway, but the oil level is still dead on
.. as far as how I drive it, fairly easy on the engine I'd say .. tho it has a lot less power than it used too.
I'm starting to think the shop knocked something when they were replacing the water pump .. from these forums and other info I gather this sensor mounting does not commonly fail (to the extent that it drains all the oil from the car).
