I dont know the specifics of mazda fluid either, sorry. I would double check the specs and disconnect the battery for awhile. Is the transmission slipping at all? If not, it might just be that the old fluid was so degraded and it just needs time to a

I have read that different companies measure TBN in different ways. I sent in an oil sample to Blackstone and the TBN report was 1.0. Blackstone suggested I could go farther next time? I agree with you, seems to be a lot of smoke and mirrors.

Oiled ones are typically filters like the K&N. I think Fram also makes the airhog which is also an oiled air filter. They've fallen out of favor because the oil can get on the mass air flow sensor and can screw things up. That's usually from peop

It's hard to get an accurate oil level reading on this engine. The cartridge filter will slowly drain back into the sump causing the level to rise over night [no anti drain back valve]. This is a false high reading. According to the manual, you are s

I've seen recommendations of 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 TBN and 25%, 33% and 50% of Virgin TBN for condemnation limits of oil for gasoline engines. Is their any real evidence for a particular limit?

How dark was the fluid? In my experience with transmissions the initial fill usually has lots of mud on the bottom of the pan. Subsequent drain/fills result in little to no mud in the pan. I do think that the original transmission fluid can be left i

Looks like Discount Tire is getting, or has had, their own exclusive version of the Cinturato P7 Plus. Renamed the Cinturato Strada, it has a similar tread pattern and mileage warranty as the P7 Plus. Limited sizes are listed so far for the Strada.

My reason for running HDEO in my lawn tractor is with air cooling. I figure that if a diesel engine can't kill this oil, then an air cooled engine wont' either. The cost difference is minimal over the life of an engine, and I use it for other vehicle
