This is the '97 Chev. Express van that had set a P1870 code. You will recall, I changed the filter and put in full-synthetic with Lube Gard "red". Everything worked perfectly and no codes were set on the 7000 mile trip. The $50 spent on the filter and fluid were probably well spent! By the way, the engine, returning with over 97,000 miles on it, used less than a quart of oil for the trip. When I hear of newer engines using a quart every 1000 miles, and that being called "normal", I just shake my head...

Thanks for the update! We hope it continues for you. You gave it the best shot without an overhaul. Of course, eventually they all need an overhaul, it's just a matter of time and miles. Continued Good Luck, Transman
