I'm leaning towords a 0w-30'or 0w-40 or 5w-40 oil. I see amsoil makes 0w-30 in thier signature series line and I have read that it's a great oil, possibly even amsoils best oil. I see redline makes a 0w-30 and a 0w-40 and a 5w-40. I don't know much a

I would suggest a high quality HEAVY DUTY engine oil with API service CJ-4/SN in 10W-30, 15W-40 or or synthetic 5W-40. Brands vary, but try MOBIL DELVAC, SHELL ROTELLA or SUPERTECH (Warren). All these CJ-4/SN HEAVY DUTY engine oils help the Big Rig

Many trucks have this-as stated. My 2011 w/the 5.3 makes the noise as well. The discussion on other boards is most dealers don't wish to do anything about it. In addition, most run normally when they warm up-at least for now.

Hey welcome to BITOG! First forget the Lucas Oil thickener. I'd suggest Quaker State Defy 5W-30 for year round use. I don't know if your engine actually needs higher AW additive levels like ZDDP but Defy has it. Do you have an oil pressure gauge?

What are the spec's on the cam? Ultimately that's going to determine whether you need additional ZDDP or not. For reference, we broke-in and ran for a number of years a Lunatti voodoo in my buddy's dad's SBC, which is about the wildest series of read

WELCOME! You will find here that, this site isn't crazy about Lucas Products particularly the Oil Stabilizer. And most will suggest a 5W40 or 10w30 diesel motor oils, I believe.

Might be worth testing charging voltage. Try before starting and after running for a bit. If it's high it could cause cell failure, AGM's don't like being cooked, there's not much to cook away.

I used to live a rural area and once found a nest in my air filter. I took a piece of leftover hardware cloth and formed it around the air intake. Still there and no more nests. Cheap enough, took a minute or so, mostly to find the piece to use.

If 10W-30 is one of the specs allowed for your vehicle, enjoy it and use it without a second thought.
