    Yeah.....just wait for the new questions to come out. And I thought this was supposed to be a basic electrical knowledge test, not an advanced thing like L1 is ha ha. No more test light questions, maybe one left.

    You probably passed. I always think I'm gonna fail the trans/drivetrain tests, but somehow I manage to pass them. Even tho I never really work on transmissions, let alone rebuild them. I do think having all 8 plus the L1 helped me find another job in 24 hours after the last place let me go after 20 years. Still have people asking if I want to come work for them....

    I have been burning about 1qt every 3k miles, and ive only got about 7k miles on it. GM says thats "normal". Ive got the LS6 valley cover a catch can and deleted the PCV system. Thats seems to help as before the new motor i burned about 1.5qts every 3k. I also wonder if switching from royal purple on old motor to amsoil with new made a difference.

    I have a 01 trans am with the same problems. About 2,000 miles after the oil change the low oil light poped on.
