Have a theory..............
On you guy's wiith the '01's using oil............LOT's OF oil.........
For grins(what you got to lose?).

I had used around a Quart @ 1000.......at 1500, I changed the oil & filter.

I DID NOT use the A/C Ultra..........I used a Pennzoil.......

I am now at 825 miles since oil change, and from the looks of my stick, I think my usage is going to have DECREASED by at least 75%..............

Appears I will get 2K out of it, before any add............

Here is the reason for the post.......we ALL know about the rings.............

I THINK the factory filters are causing EXCESSIVE pressure, and therefore MAKING the car use more oil than it NORMALLY would.......

Give er' a whirl..........see if it helps you, as mine appears to have a chance to keep from any mechanical surgery.......I can easily live with 2K per quart.............;)
