Re: Top engine mount...finally I am buying OEM

Re: Top engine mount...finally I am buying OEM

I just put on a frowny face anchor top mount and it got rid of all the vibration, it may not last as long, but it is very easy to change and I can get them for $15.

Re: Piston soak ?

I never left anything in for more than 2 hrs, I read somewhere that sometimes consumption goes up for a few hundred miles after a soak, so maybe it will get better.

Piston soak ?

I have done a few piston soaks over the last month or 2 and now it seems like the consumption is worse. Is this normal for consumption to get worse at first?

Thanks

what oil to use?

I recently bought a 98 sl2 and was wondering what would be the best choice for oil, high mileage or diesel oil? it uses about a qt every 1000 miles.
