Considering the 3.1 in your car isn't known to be a very long lasting engine, I wouldn't risk it.

Is that is a Delco part in the box? Something doesn't look right with the part numbers, maybe someone did a switcharoo?

I have the same vehicle. I just changed mine at 5k with Mobil 1 0w20 AFE and a Honda 01 Filter. I also added 150ml of Liqui Moly MOS2 Anti-Friction Engine treatment. My OLM was at 30%.

Does anyone know of the JD plus50 II oil is energy conserving? I dont see the seal on the bottle, but these bottles are labeled like consumer oil bottles... I'm thinking of running the extra I have left each oil change in my dirt bikes. Thanks
