At least you were appreciated. I tried to help this woman out in Boston with her overheated car and I got some water for her radiator and spend about 35 minutes trying to help her out. I didnt even receive a thank you.

So when are you going to rebuild that motor Jacob?

its supposed to be good for that, i thought it was 5k but not a huge difference, some people just like to change their oil more often, yours should be fine

Check this out for some really interesting information:
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=87439

I found it to be really useful, and it'* got so much awesome information from people on this forum. There'* a lot more good stuff with a search or two for oil filters and oil viscosity, too. I hope that clarifies a few things.
