8,286 MILE UPDATE

The rebuilt has over 8,000 highway (majority) miles on it as of today. I am most of the way through the second oil change interval (OCI) at 3,097 miles; meaning my next oil change is just under 2,000 miles. Not so much as a hiccup in the engine. Running super smooth.

Here is a shot of the oil dipstick at 3,097 miles:



When I changed the oil I put exactly 4.5 quarts in it, hitting the top Full dot pretty much bang on. I'd say this is much less than half a quart burn in over 3k miles. Nice! I was burning at least 5 quarts in 5k miles before it seized up. So I'd say the rebuilt is working very nicely so far. Time will tell.

And why not:



Not sure what was up this oil change. Put in 4.5 qts, was up about this mark (a tad higher). Weird. Anyway, not much consumption in a bit over 2,000 miles. About half way through my OCI. Still Mobil 1, just not using HM variant. 0-20W.

Should I start the "dealership put in too much oil" thread?

I usually find 4.5 qt to typically be above the max mark. Mine has about .75" over max and the oil jug still has a .25 qt - .50 qt. That is assuming the lines on the oil jugs are right... As long as you know you did not add more than one 5qt jug of oil, it's not the end of the world.
