5.0 oil question
Let me start with the disclaimer: I have not yet changed the oil to see what's going on.
I've got a low mileage (55,000) engine that has been maintained its whole life. The oil pressure seems to be a bit low on the notoriously questionable factory gauge. There is no smoke that I've seen coming from the exhaust. When I started it cold, I did see some smoke come from the engine compartment. I have not noticed any smell to indicate an oil leak and there was no evidence of any that I have seen. I am convinced that the exhaust donut is long gone from the sound of the exhaust and suspect the smoke I saw came from there.
Knowing what I've just shared, what would your recommendations be regarding oil and things to keep an eye on?

I keep noticing the DOT puts up signs to honor my burnouts. That's nice of them.
