Default NOw my car really moves.

Wel seeing from the post It must have been the weekend for car maintanice. ANd so do I , I changed the oil from vavilone syth 10w-30 to 5w-30 mobil 1 /w mobil 1 filter. But before that I put in some cleaning oil I think i was basicly )w oil. The 1st I had done this to this car,and boy was that motor dirty a lot dark stuff come out and then I put ran some seafoam though the car not that bad of somke come out of the exhuast. All of the work really paid off that car goes 80 so quickly now and will do faster then if don't watch it. It runs so smooth. Although I believe it is time for the new cat on the car even before I did this ever once in well the motor sounds like it has lot back pressure and every so I get the rotton egg smell in the car. Oh well guess it time for high flow one they are not that bad and then when order that maybe some ngk plugs for the car. That will be done my next pay check

the series one takes 10w-30 in it,but the car seems to like it better in the winter then 5w-30. 5w -30 is just thinner the car doesn't seem to leak any more with it. The other car takes aka mabliu 3100 take 5w-30 so I can just buy it by the case. As for the ticket that is so easy to do. I would like to get the car dyno at some time it has to be running close to spec I know it old ,but I have driven other seires1 3800 that old have lot miles mine seems to be the faster them.
