    How does the computer measure it? If it's done by miles then does anyone know what it is set at? Cuz I've changed the oil a few times and i Know it's not even close to 3000.

    Sub Q: I'm still running regular oil in it because i have done no performance mods, but was wanting some input on the advantages of a synthetic or semisynth. Thanks guys

    Also i just purchased rims on the web and will post some pics some time next week.

    His question is it the interval driven off the ECM or tranny or rpm, etc. I'm embarrassed to say I don't know.

    From the manual. Go figure. Too lazy to go out to the car in the cold, that's for sure. Thanks John for always staying on top of things.

    Ahem, if somebody (not you JP) would send me the cd, it would enhance my IQ considerably.

      Synthetic is fine. I would just stick with the 5/30 weight based on the tolerances in the engine.

        I run full syn Mobil 1 5w-30 all time and the trip meter goes by miles for the oil from what I noticed every 100 miles it will lower a few percent until your at 20% is usually when I ran 3000 miles
