Hi Charles,
I don't think going over 1K miles is going to hurt your Monte (unless it's driven like a Taxi Cab with constant stop & go driving habits, or you're pulling a trailer) ...

Today's oil is pretty good & if you have been maintaining your Monte you shouldn't have any problems.

What type of oil are you using ? Filter ?

Check back 2 see what are expert mechanic member's post on your thread...

Oh, how many miles on your Monte ?
