3.8 v6

I know there is a thread concerning the 3.8 V6. Please note that within to 61,000 to 67,000 miles range, the 61,000 Castrol Oil change completely evaporated and that there may have been on 2 qts left at the 67,000 oil change.

In addition, something internal (such as faint valve tap) has since developed. Anyone else experience this and does anyone know if there have been recalls.

Going to dealer 09/21 and most like Federal Court if they don't honor lifetime power train warranty. And yes, I have all my oil change docs.
