Some people ignore chimes all the time, seatbelt chimes are often ignored as just another nuisance. I cant think of any normal use reason for them to wear out, many cars are quite old and still have the originals in good shape.

How soon do you need to buy? I bet you could buy new and only finance a few grand and pay it off in a year. Maybe in the spring.

I'd just use the yellow filter for 10,000 miles - as much oil as you're adding, that should be an easy OCI.

I like it. Use it on my truck after washing, but that usually has a good wax/sealant base also. On the beater car itll last a couple weeks- lasts longer than m06 cleaner wax imo.

As I understand it, vaporization starts to become a significant factor for 0W oils. That's why most of these oils are synthetic. Also, going from 10W to 5W "buys" you about 16 degrees F to get the same viscosity. I'm not sure how much mo
