I’m at Stephen Wade Nissan in St. George, Utah, for my fourth oil change in four months. I suggested they change the name to Wade Stephen Nissan, sounds much better.
Fake knock on imitation wood but the Z has been performing admirably under tough conditions. The tough condition being that I’m driving. I might’ve boiled the oil and turned it into tar. A couple of days ago I was flinging it around turns at what some might call a high speed while driving through a high mountain range while it was 107° outside. I’ve never seen the oil temperature gauge get up to 260° but there it was. I was going to turn the air conditioning off to give the engine a break but then I realized I was wearing a nice clean shirt and I wanted to go to a decent place for dinner.
