Just thought I should add my two cents worth:
The engine on my 93 100S uses quite a bit of oil (up to a quart every 1500
miles). It runs smooth though. Over the past years, I had several problems. all
taken care of under warranty:
- leaking oil sump
- leaking oil pump
- leaking transmission: new transmission was installed after warranty had
expired at no cost to me. Apparently it is one of the newer generation
transmissions. The gearing is a bit shorter, and the car feels more lively than
with the previous trans. Compared to other cars I have owned, this is quite a
long list. The good part is that AoA has been very good about it. At issue is
whether I will be encountering the same problems down the road. I really like
the car, and intend to keep it for a long time.
BTW, my mechanic insists on using single grade Valvoline, saying that it is
better for longevity than multigrade oils. Any one would like to comment?
