Haven't got around to making a video yet, but have some questions. My mechanic put about 2-3 quarts of oil with the 1 year old oil, so that should be fine for me to test drive, right? It leaks oil so he added some before turning it on.

I'm going to start driving my car, but I know I need to completely change out the oil, filter, gas and possibly gas filter. Is it ok for me to change the oil wihout letting the car warm up? I have about a quarter tank of gas so can I just put some fresh gas in or should I try to syphon it out? I don't remember the last octane I used.

Thank you!!

I have a high pitched "whistle" at idle.If I push on the shaft that goes through the throttle body ,it quits.I suppose after 18 years,it may leak a little air around the shaft where it goes through the TB.My car is now nicknamed "Weezer". It's truly annoying at idle,but as soon as you add any throttle it goes away.I'm sure it would be better if it were fixed,but performance is not suffering,so I don't care.It may be that,try it out.
