Thumbs down Great site!!!

New member from Michigan here. Love this site, so had to join up. I have a 98 trep with my second engine, first 2.7 blew up (seems to happen alot). I'll check in often, especially since there's so much helpful information available thru the various threads. Great site, and glad to have found it.

Welcome.

Run a true synthetic oil in that new engine, and it should last longer then your previous. There are some other things you can do too, which you can find by searching the 2nd gen forums.

welcome to the boards man. Be careful with those 2.7 engines, they seem to be blowing up quite often. You probably should have looked into a 3.2 swap. Anyway, look forward to seeing you around!

Thanks for the welcome, guys. By the way, my engine did blow up due to sludge build-up. Had it replaced with a rebuild through a Company called Accurate Engines. They offer a 100,000 mile engine warranty, which is why I went with them. They have rebuilt "several hundred" 2.7L engines, according to the Service Center Manager. He claimed that the 2.7 was their most popular rebuilt engine, due to high demand. They do require oil changes every 3000 miles to keep the warranty in effect. Also, they recommend 5W30 oil year round. I'll check to see if I can run synthetic oil, like Mobil 1. Don't want to risk voiding the warranty.

Mobil1 5W30, can't go wrong there. 6,000 miles between oil chnages, but, that's going by the specs of the oil.
