Bluestream I think he means the stretched chain will throw misfire codes, Crank and Cam codes that they diagnose to be from a known issue of stretched timing chain. Just a guess on my part though....

As about every conventional 5w-30 sold here also meets WSS-M2C-946A, I'd suggest the "SN" part of the spider graph is the equivalent. Meeting Dexos1 requires at least a synthetic blend making it a more stringent standard than Ford's.

MY last VW Bug, a 1967, had NO oil filter and I personally put about 150K on it before my brother got it. Rust got it before the engine quit.

I highly doubt your original choice for oil had anything to do with your oil burning today. Its an old car, old cars sometimes burn oil. Your only choice is to install new piston rings. IMO, just drive the car and add oil as needed, it's a lot che

Or maybe use the 40WT as an additive to boost the zddp of other oils you use. It has 2200 ppm of Phosphorous, which is plenty stout.

Change it, why take a chance, if something happens down the road, you'll always wonder if an oil change might have prevented it. You close on hours anyway, for me that is, so go for it.
