When I bought my 1994 T-Bird in February, I said, "I'll drive it for 20 years"! Seventeen years later, it now has 198K+ miles on it. It's been a great car. Too bad a couple of the mechanics haven't been so great! :-)

I've been using 10-40 weight for several years. I've not had any engine problems. Although, there may be some coming up! I'm being told by Jiffy Lube it's outdated, not in use. They don't stock it anymore.

What will happen when the Serpentine belt breaks while driving down the road at 50 - 60 mph? One mechanic said to replace it 1 yr. ago, another said it was not a problem! I've driven well over 2,300 miles since then. It's been replaced once in 17 yrs. due to a cat in the engine!!!Ouch!
