buzzyb, I had an 01 35U with the V-10. Bought it with 12K on the odometer, I immediately changed oil to the Mobil 1 10-30 with a NAPA Gold filter and drove it to 82K mi. and it never hiccuped one time. It was still running strong when I traded it. I am a bit anal on oil changes, and even tho it was the Mobil 1 synthetic, I changed it every 3K mi. since it only took 6 qts. I do all the oil changes myself, so the cost was insignificant compared to the mileage I got out of it.
