Not to get off topic, But am going to;.......................reading on several different threads about the 3.6 VVT engine there seems to be a whole host of "inherent problems" that are just waiting to happen if one doesn't use the right kind of oil, change soon & often, "walnut blast" the valves(whatever that is),etc.,etc.
Now, I literally came kickin & screamin into the 21 century, "vehicle wise", in May of 18 when I went from a 97 Plymouth Grand Voyager 3.3 with a 41 TE and 285k to a 15 Traverse LS 3.6vvt. Never touched the 3.3 engine; replaced every thing attached to that engine several times. Bought the thing new and changed oil/ filter every 4 to 5k, used Walmart Super Tech 10w30 and a Fram filter. "Burns' about a quart every 1200/1500 mi. Chrysler made 4 different engines,2 4's & 2 6's.for the Town & Country, Grand Caravan, & Voyager. Don't know about the 4's but the 6's were excellent.
Question; has the industry gotten so "high tech" of late with the LLT'S, VVT'S, 6,7,8,9, gear trannys that they've built themselves a nightmare?
