Just a thought but maybe your grey stuff on your dipstick is ash derived from burning engine oil? The ash (if that's what it is) would come from thermally decomposing the over-based metallic detergent and ZDDP in the oil.

She should have also had 3 free services: Oil, filter, and rotation at 1/2/3yr or 10/20/30k, with the cabin filter and brake flush at 2yr/20k. If she purchased it new and only had one service she missed out.

Someone mentioned Rosberg should receive a 5 grid penalty, because the fake watch on his driving gloves was set to the incorrect time. That sounds fair seeing as how the FIA is conducting their never ending, "stupid rules contest".

The golden oil on a yellow stick isn't very easy to see. I usually have to look at it from different angles or run a rag very slow till oil appears on it.

Do you know when your spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and distributor rotor were replaced? Often a vehicle manual will state that those items are good for 100,000 miles, but I find that they are more likely to last 60,000 miles.

Would love to see Pennzoil Ultra 0W20 at a local Canadian Tire, would be nice if the sale price would be under $35 per 5L Jug. Would be great if they got Amsoil back instead of Royal Purple. Castrol I wouldn't purchase at all.

Dr. Tranny is nothing short of amazing. Definitely give it a shot if nothing else works on that shudder. Mercon or Maxlife with Dr. Tranny is solid gold in Ford transmissions that call for Mercon.
