    * Oil useage check at required oil change

    Well, I just had my first scheduled oil change. After seeing post of the 3.6 using oil I had my concerns. Upon arrival at my dealership I had the service writer open the hood and check the dipstick. It read exactly "Full". Not one drop was missing. They changed the oil & filter and I was on my way.

    You still need to check it yourself at least every 500 to 1000 miles. It sure is easier to add oil than have a failure of some type, and you also will learn about your oil consumption.

    Just make sure its at operating temps and you let it sit for about 10-15 minutes to get an accurate reading.
