If you are giving off white smoke, I'de moniter coolant levels too while you are at it just to play safe...and I would go with Nissan OE oil filter.
IIRC isnt their a problem with their ring designs or they installed a part upside down? I thought VW issued a recall for that.Lotust said:my 2001 VW golf 2.0 with 37,000 miles burned 1 quart every 1000 miles. VW calls this normal :wtf:
Did you switch to synthetic oil or something?
