#168 of 210 Hit 100k miles today!
Oct 27, 2006 (1:50 pm)
Just over 6-1/2 years from purchase, I hit 100,000 miles today on my 2000 Impala base model w/3.8l. I realize it's not that big a deal with modern cars, but still exciting to go from 5 digits to 6. Planning to drive this car another 2-3 years, so here's hoping I can get to 150k or so with no major problems.

Oddly enough, my "Change engine oil" light came on at 100,017...guess it's time to change those spark plugs too!

Congratulations. Change the oil frequently on your 3800. Change the transmission fluid at 40-80-120 etc.. I hope you changed your plugs before 100K, like 60-70K. Change the dexcool every two years or 30K miles and your car will last to 250-300K mi.

Okay, apparently what I thought was a gentle request to come here to talk about things other than your Impala has been received by some as an invite to leave the site completely?! That was not my intention at all and I apologize if anyone perceived it that way. It just seemed that there was a group of Impala fans that were becoming close friends and I simply didn't want their off topic remarks confuse and deter new members from posting. Believe it or not, but whenever a discussion does drift, I invariably get emails asking me if it's about abc, why are they talking about def?
I hope that helps explain things and if you have questions, please let me know.
And yes, I'm still digging out today.
