And you still returned to this place after the last time with oil spilled out where it shouldn't be? Convenience, time and cost are some considerations to use oil change places, repair shops or advertising deals from everyone but one hint was already a clue not to return to the same place that used incorrect oil. The old adage still holds - "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me...."

To add to the oil debates;

Oil discussions are like fuel prices - changing as moods, politics, water tide, money, whatever.

2003 ION-3 Sedan
Default Re: 5W20 vs. 5W30

I've been a good Follower of the Saturn Owner's Manual. OK that's a lie... but I have stuck with only 5W30 or 0W30 (Most always Full Synthetic) with my '03 ION all these years. The gods it seems have decided
my ION,with over 131K, will be cursed to burn oil... debating my first steps in deciding what Sacrifice(s) will appease them while saving my pocket book.
