View Full Version : 100k, just some questions now...

Well, Stealth has finally broke six digits on the odometer. Now I have a few questions about what to expect from other LA1 owners past the 100k mark.

1) The car has already be remedied of the LIM gasket leak, and a clogged cat, is there any other quirks I should be aware of at this mileage? Water pump, etc?

2) I run 5W-30 high mileage oil in the car since I hit 72k, should I stick with that weight, or should I bring it up to 10W-30? I use Valvoline MaxLife, it's a Synthetic Blend high mileage oil

3) I bought the GA with 65k, and the trans was never serviced by it's previous owner. I've been tempted to change the trans filter, but I'm worried it'll screw the trans to hell. Should I even bother?
