Park Avenues are bigger, fatter, and slower, and handle like boats.

Now I'm inviting the wrath of our PA members. I have no idea if they had it or not.

NOT the same body. PA'* are C bodies, we're H bodies. Think of a C body as a stretched H.

Well, the 'oil life' on the SSE is basic in that it'* not a 'sensor'. You just reset the DIC every time you change you oil or do any of the multitude of maintainence functions that you can set Don't know how it is on the 2000...

Me personally, the mileage timers get set to something ridiculous (high), and things get done as needed. If the oil is dirty/old, it comes out, whether or not it'* reached what would have been the preset DIC setting. Don'* philosophy
