Welcome.

Keep an eye on your "new to you" SC2's oil level during your first few weeks of ownership and figure out if and how much oil it burns. Do not allow the oil to get low.

Feel free to post your questions in the s series section.
Kinda slow around here right now so we may be having a public private conversation.

I'm already planning oil changes at 2000 miles. My wife used to have a 96 sl2 that needed it done that much. I'm already used to it and since I work at a parts store, I get the stuff cheap enough it doesn't matter.

At least 10W-30, maybe 10W-40 to get sufficient lubrication w those ambient temps.
