Did you run this oil for only 3K because of the coolant leak?

Took a double hit from fuel aand coolant, and still looks half-decent. Tough oil!

Yes, Blackstone said it was a good idea to change at around 3,000 miles due to a minor coolant leak.

I'm thinking that I have a leaky fuel injector. I plan to have them all changed soon. The dealer wants $153 each for them, so I'm looking elsewhere for them.

BTW, the filter I used was the EAO20. This is the third oil change on the same filter. I never emptied the filter, just changed the oil.

Are you going to deal with the coolant leak? Seems a waste to do 3k changes on SSO.....

Wow, I looked at this report two times and didn't notice the total vehicle mileage: 241,134 miles!!! Yeah, I'd be happy with this report for what you have.

Have you always done 3,000 mile oil changes on this engine ?


Why do people post I want the best for my car,,, When there isn't anything that is the best on the car to begin with.

I used to go 5,000 miles per change. I have to admit, it is too much fun to do it more often.

I am not sure. It could be the head gasket. I have discussed this with the mechanic. He feels that the leak is so minor that installing a new gasket would not be very cost effective. I may have the head bolts retorqued in the mean time. What would you suggest?

Just wondering why the antifreeze % is left blank on the Blackstone report? I had them do a report recently and it was filled in. Thanks
