whens the last time you did an oil change?

generally the ticking is an indication you're either a little low or its time for a change.

also the oil weights that people use seem to vary quite a bit too.

the PO of my car always used 5w30. My first change I went to a 10w30 mobil 1 synth. It was nice and quiet for about 2500 miles and then it was ticking worse than before I changed it.

I saw a few reccomendations for 10w40 Castrol gtx on .net, so thats what I just switched to this past weekend. Once again, its quiet, but we will see for how long and how badly it ticks when it comes back.

Make sure you use a decent filter. Apparently fram filters are teh suxx for these cars, so Ive been using purolator.

like JDMAflac posted, more than a few people have reported abnormally low oil pressure when using them.

Sort of like how no other spark plug wires apparently work quite right like the NGK blues
