Thanks Northern Sol for the feedback.
OK, more questions: (1) When should I do the next oil change? Right now, the DIC says 28% left. I'll probably only put 1K to 2K more miles on it(now at 13K), before parking it for the winter(and I'm still not sure about that parking part). Should I go ahead & change it now, since it's new to me. Or wait till colder weather and lower oil life % before(maybe) storing it & doing the oil change?
(2) I have gallons of 5W-20 & 0W-30 synth. oil in stock. Can I, with good conscience, use either of these weights? Or should I only use the recommended 5W-30? Not that big of a deal, moneywise, but I would like to use up what I have, if possible.
(3) The car('08, NA, 13K miles) has original tires(RSA's) that look as if they are showroom. No checkering, not drenched in tire dressing, no uneven wear, no problems with air pressures. Can I keep running them without having doubts( I'll probably not take them onto the Interstate again)? I'm only cruising this thing locally, so it's not like I need exotic rubber.
I took the usual advice (RTFM & use the forum search) & still was unsure of the answers to the above.
Hope to get some opinions or facts out of you guys.
