excuse this basic question, but there's so much written on the subject...
when should I change the oil after the 1k service. The manual says 5k.
thanks for your input.

If it last that long, I have to add a qt every 1K, making the switch to Mobil 1 next change. I have 10K on my 05 and changed it every 3K.

Damn! That's a lot of oil use!!! I guess it's probably waaay too late to seat the rings differently, but I would be tempted to switch back to dino for a couple of k miles and beat the snot out it it to see if make a difference. Then switch back to synth.

Been awhile since it has burned like that, but for the first 5-6k that was the norm.
