Thanks Expat, JHZR2 and Jacek for your advice! 1. I will execute from cold. 2. I always think about doing a soak from the holes, but for the sake of isolation, I will try it (with a scope) after analyzing the results of the straightforward approach.

E0 regular: 23.7 mpg. (The dash readout said 24.8 -- the largest gap between computer and calculation I've seen in the 7 months I've had the car.) This is only a little better than the 23 I saw a few months ago with E10 from Walmart, and that's som

In my NA 3800 Park Avenue, I used Quaker State Defy 10W30 without problems. The 3800 is a no-drama engine when it comes to oil. Post a pic of the GS. It would interesting to compare it to today's Regal GS model.

Im kind of Leary about using a modern syn fluid in these old trannys. I once used syn in a mopar 833 gearbox and it started to shift really slow because of the oil that clung to the syncronisers, a shift back to ordinary 80w-140 gl4 solved that prob

This transmission tolerates newer ATFs. Use any dexmerc ATF. Use a full synthetic if in your budget. MerconV and ATF+4 are affordable upgrades. The transmission needs a mild valve body mod, like the Transgo SK-340, to assist with its sloppy smoot

It's not consuming oil (i.e. burning), but with the sep installed, there was more venting out the breather. It seems like the sep system was pressurizing the crankcase more. Air Wolf says you need to properly place the outlet tube so it is in a neu

The viscosity isn't the primary issue with splash lubed engines. The primary issue is with maintaining proper levels, not operating it with water or debris contamination and then proper viscosity is on the back burner. Anything up to 40 weight is acc
