    using M1 High Mileage... having doubts, switch?

    I'm in the auto repair business. It's quite common for Nissan V6's to develop leaks at the large O-Ring where the oil cooler adapter mounts to the engine block. I would not blame the oil.

    $160 for Mount and Balance and Valve Stems !

    That tire dealer is very small-minded. We LOVE being a Tire Rack Preferred Installer. It brings us LOTS of new business, and not just tire business... most of these customers become our customers for maintenance and mechanical work, too. Go to and find a five-star rated installer...

    My wife says I am now in a much better mood versus when the factory fill was in my Sonata Hybrid. And, I find that I am sleeping more soundly. I'm also losing weight, but that could be due to the Nutrisystem. All in all, Pennzoil Ultra has shown very positive results.
