Let'* also remember that this engine was full of gunk and looked horribile internally. This time opening it up, it looks much cleaner and the deposits are disappearing. Let the oil be dark.. that'* the engine cleaning itself.
Next year when you perform the ritual, I'd be surprised if the oil isn't staying cleaner since most likely the deposits will be gone.
I agree... When I got my 91 LE the oil in it was black as tar.... It took a few oil changes to get it all cleaned out... Now its been 8 or 9 months and the oil is still quite clean...
The 95 Is at 5000 miles on the Mobil and is now black... I need to get the oil changed in both of them sometime soon, hopefully today...
CorvetteCrazy, Just get a case of Havoline( dino ) or Mobil ( dino ) and do a couple of oil changed rather quick... Sooner or later the oil should get better, it may take a little while for your engine..
In most any 3800 I have ever seen the bottom end will go before you wear out the rings...
Just being curious.... Do you or have you used any oil during the oil life cycle regaurdless of milage?
