You settle the oil change interval question with data from Blackstone.

My all highway P2 driven tested like new oil at 7500 miles, even TBN was like new, no water, no fuel.

I change it at 7500 and top off the T5 with the old oil

I'm with you. 7500 miles with Mobil 1 and fresh Mann filter 8)

. I choose to change it on this car, one of my two prime cars, and use the oil as top,off for my winter or Airport rats
Abscate: Interesting phrase - Airport rats. Vehicles reserved for taking unwanted visitors to and from the airport? Trashed out and ugly?

Seller did a few snip snips here and there that it probably shouldn't have had so I'm gonna need to look into dealing with that. Also now i've gotta figure out how to make it happy in FWD (preferably without shelling out for an angle gear).

Wasn't as bad as I thought. Line to the slave cylinder got chopped (as in, cut) and the ground cable got chopped but neither of those are an issue.

Minor task...noticed a problem....identification of problem by divine providence.
Readied my snows for swap. One was flat. One of the metal clips on a wheel weight of the flat tire had rusted away.
I performed a soapy water test on the beads as I figured the rusted and swollen weight clip was the cause of the leak.
NO BUBBLES. Hmmmm. I went inside.
After prepping dinner I went back outside and found the leak.
I had inadvertently positioned the valve at the 6 o'clock position such that the draining soapy water accumulated around it.
I came out to find a ever growing pile of suds around the valve.
Happy, happy day.

This is the last time-go-round for these snows and the wheels are real rusty too. They represent the best $200 I ever spent.
I got 5 or 6 seasons out of them even though they were a tad wide.
Future Winters will see 15" Lysithia wheels sporting 195 or narrower snow tires.
