    It's my daughters. She got her masters and is now starting out on life. Figured her 2012 Cruze served well but wanted a little bigger vehicle. Just tickled that Carvana gave her top dollar for the Cruze. $7,987 for it. Car Max was offering $6k, Kelly Blue book showed it at $6,200 for private part selling. I think it did well and we didn't have to leave our house. They came and picked it up. Super easy to work with for sure.

    It would be cool to get a UOA from your truck to see how it is doing.

    I've had to add a quart to it between the last two oil changes I've done.

    That's still ok. They can still get a good read on how things are going.

    I could have went a little longer, but I took the damn valve cover off and cleaned the stupid pcv valve. Hell, it isn't even a valve anymore. It's a fixed orifice. :facepalm: I'm hoping that fixed the damn oil consumption problem I was having.

    Interesting, the fixed orifice is what replace the traditional PCV to stop the oil consumption. How bad was it?
