look up the ratings on that engine....
it's not good.
I've personally seen a few of them that had gone sour, and their owners were
quite dissapointed. It's possible that the 10K mileage oil changes that were
called for...... but I strongly believe that at least some of those people
changed their oil more often then that.
I have no idea why they do it..... but I know that it's a well documented
fault in that engine.
