I think my 01 has alittle problem with Oil consumption. It is out of warranty. Also, it has a magnacharger on it.

Was the fix a recall or a warranty only fix? Will i have problems getting it honored with the supercharger?

Also, what are the negative effects of consumption?

How much do you consume? Is it during normal daily driving or mainly present during prolonged higher rev (over 3500 RPM)?

Personally if it is no more than a qt every 1200 to 1500 miles, I would not worry about it. Most high performance motors will consume some oil. Just be diligent, as you should with any car anyway, and check your oil at least once a week before firing up your car. The system will also tell you when you are down a 1/2 qt.

When the Low Oil Level Comes on it represents more like 1 quart low. :cheers:
