Same one I had - from memory, the bottom end on both the 2.5 and 3.0 petrols are pretty 'soft' so that is likely to be the problem with your original engine - having said that, mine managed over 110k...

Has Hellmans changed their recipe?

I see - had never heard of the setting before, but then the cameras I used to play with were bog standard point and shoot jobs. We've got a good tripod, although to date it has seldom been used.
