2002 Subaru Outback L.L. Bean H6 3.0

Installed Mobil 1 M1-104 oil filter and used 1 quart of Mobil 1 10W-30 Extended Performance, 1 quart Mobil 1 10W-30, 1 quart Quaker State Torque Power 5W-30, 1 quart Super Tech 5W-30 synthetic, 1 quart Valvoline Synpower 5W-30 synthetic, and 1 quart Motorcraft 5W-20 synthetic blend.

I had leftovers to get rid of. I just added the 4oz Auto RX maintenance dose a couple days ago (1100ish miles on oil) because I didn't have any Auto RX on hand at the time of the change.

I've used Mobil 1 10w-30 in my truck for 17 years. This weekend I went with Pennzoil 10w-30 HM, and a NAPA Gold filter. Since I'm only putting around 2K miles a year on it now, I figured synthetic was no longer necessary. Not sure if I'm gonna stick with the PZ, but thought I'd give it a try. Not sure if I needed HM either, as the truck doesn't leak any oil or have any other problems.

I was going to run the Pennzoil 5W-30 I had in there to 5,000 miles but I had the valve cover open to adjust the valves and wanted to change it out because of the silicon (hondabond) used on the gasket and the dirt/dust that may have been introduced. It only made it to 3,920 miles or so.

Had 5 months on old oil and about 4k. Engine has 236k on it; the engine has had regular dino oil changes all its life. I usually use 10W-30 when its cool and HD30 during the hot summer months.

Free after rebate Peak 10w-30 in '94 LS400 with 240k miles bought couple months ago, engine runs as smooth as any brand name conventional oil. The oil change interval for this old car is 6 months or 6-8k miles with conventional oil, oil filter is changed only on second oil change. The car consumes about 1/2 quarts every 3-4k miles.

6 months/6000 miles on conventional, with filter changed every other cycle really seems smart. Manufacturers reommend it for a reason. Most filters can handle that interval. Free after rebate does rock.

I just got a couple of great synth deals recently. Had I not I believe I'd just go with YB, WB, MC. Or whatever is Free after rebate like the Peak.

For those of us with regular cars, doing regular driving, it can't be beat.

I will say that as long as one is comfortable, going the 1 year and 12,000 miles with Mobil 1 EP might be just as good. A one year OCI could be cool. At $30 with a Mobil 1 filter it's only $30 more than free. Which is worth the convenience to some. Of course I am still getting up the guts to do a 6 month change.

The Crown is doing great. Had some starter hijinx last week because replacement part was a dud, and consumes around 1.5 qts per OCI. Mostly do 3-4k OCI's with whatever oil is the best deal. I have Castrol Semi-synthetic & Napa synthetic waiting in the wings due to recent sales. I do 80% highway so the OCI's may stretch out soon.

Wal-mart near work has 5 qt QS synthetic for $15 so that may be next.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 06/22/09 02:25 PM

1980 Dodge van. Rebuilt to be a 20 passenger van. Longer, wider, and heavier than a standard van. It has been sitting in a pasture belonging to his father for a few years until a friend rescued it. We have been working on it on the weekends.

He is using it to haul stuff and people around for a homeless ministry he does on Sundays. And he must be doing God's work cause the Bus hasn't abandond hope and stranded him somewhere. It really is an amaizing piece of work.

Right now it has 1 bottle Auto RX in it, 5 quarts of Quaker State Green bottle 10w30, and 1/2 quart of Mobile Drive clean to top it off. With a Mopar filter.
His father told him when he picked it up "yeah I think I did ONE oil chang on it ONCE." I figure it is a good Auto RX candidate.

It has a 5.2 Liter 8 cyl engine with a 2 barrel carb and a 4 gear auto transmission, 3 forward, 1 reverse. The only dial that works is the aftermarket Tempature guage. No Tach, Speedometer, Odometer, or fluid levels. We figured out it had a 33 gallon tank by filling it up, and we figured out we needed to replace fuel lines by pulling off the engine covers and looking at the leaks.

I probably need to start a thread on this Van/Bus and keep you guys informed.

Maintenance day for the 07 3.0L Accord. 19.6k miles on the clock, 6100 mi. on dealer Honda(MC5k) oil and filter. Dang OLM only at 30% but it had been 10&1/2 months and I could take no more. Normally would change at 5k/6m but the OLM is rather convincing.

Quaker State Horsepower Syn 4.5qts.*

Fram Air Filter 9600, half the cost of Honda. Looked fine. tricky to put in until you get technique.

*Notes
First synthetic oil change ever, in many years DIY OC
I will go the distance (or very close) this time using OLM OCI.
Drain plug was a pita to get off because of dealer tightening. Glad I had a 6 point socket, and hammer tap to ratchet finally freed it up.
First oil filter on Honda I've had with base up (verticle) position. ADBV should be no factor.
Reseting Maintenance minder, OLM, took some reading. lol

1.5 quarts of Synpower, 5 quarts Mobil 1.

Yes, the oil is from the rebate sales. The synpower was leftover from the last rebate, and the M1 is the beginning of the pile from current M1 rebates.

Pretty well. It's starting to use a little bit of oil now, but nothing to lose sleep over. Apparently, this is common for these VQs. In any case, the engine's never had to be opened-up.

Other than that, we do the normal, regular maintenance and replace stuff when things wear out. Overall, it's cheaper than regular loan payments. I do the stuff I'm comfortable doing the wrenching on, and take it to a trusted mechanic for the stuff I'm not comfortable with.

Fwiw, before the '01, we had a '91 Maxima SE that went to 314k before we sold it.

I did a change out on my new Troy-Bilt 340XP mower. Drained the factory fill and installed 18 oz Rotella T 30 wt. \:\!

Getting ready to change the J-D 310D backhoe - 9 quarts RTS 5-40 (CI-4+), and my J-D 955 CUT - 5 quarts RTS 5-40/NAPA 1334.

This past Sunday changed two cars

1) 2004 BMW 530i straight six with 93,000 miles, 7 quarts of 0W-30 GC, just drained the filter since this OC came halfway through the computer recommended drain. The computer started at 15,000 miles...then I just changed the oil when it read 7000 miles left.

2) 1993 Camry wagon 2.2 liter 4 cylinder 234,000 miles, 4 quarts of Valvoline maxlife 10W-30. 4500 miles on the oil. Kept the same Toyota brand filter on since I change the filter every other change.

2nd that. If you like Fram get the new Xtended guard filter and stick with your M1. If your not comfortable with the 10k change then do 7k but other than that your wasting your money.

You really don't want to be changing that often with M1....it's a waste.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 07/03/09 02:57 AM



You need a real oil ...Oooops

If I was in most parts of Canada, I'd be using a synthetic full time too.

How many miles do you put on a year, asnow1??? If you're getting around 6 months out of your M1 purchase, then I don't see that as too much of a waste.

I got almost 7000 miles on the current Maxlife OCI which is the first with this oil. I am anxious to change it out for this reason alone not to mention how this oil will do in OCI #2. I am a firm believer is using the same oil until either your cars needs change or you find a better oil.

I have used M1 HM in this particular Jeep since it had about 150k on it right after M1 HM first hit the Wal-Mart shelves...The Jeep now has 179k on it, but has been retired as a DD since a year ago. I have gone 3-4k OCI on M1 since I bought the Jeep with 65k on it in 2001. The only thing I can say for sure between the regular M1 vs the HM formula is that they seemed to darken about the same rate, but the standard M1 seems to burn off faster a little bit. I honestly can't say for sure the answer top your question but I would imagine that if you chose a full-syn oil for an older motor, then I'd definitely use a HM formula...if it was me I would use a HM dino oil like Pennzoil or Maxlife in that truck.

Finally started maintaining the wife's company trucks. First one - 2006 Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab Silverado with 98.5k miles on it. Slick 50 chasis lube, PP 10W-30 oil, an AC Delco oil filter, and a Fram Air Hog used. Will probably change to PP 5W-30 and either Pure One/M1/K&N oil filter at the next change, in October, when the oil monitor is expected to go off.
Second truck, 2006 Silverado 2500HD ext cab due in a couple of weeks. By the end of the month, both trucks will have transmission (Dex VI, still looking for a supply) and differential (AMSOIL) fluids changed out. Spark plugs and front disk pads will also be changed out.

Found a booby trap on the truck yesterday. Exhaust crossover pipe is behind the drain plug. Remove the plug, and hot oil comes gushing out right onto the pipe, making a very pretty fan pattern. Pretty if you don't have to clean up the mess. Nice design, boys.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 07/16/09 08:33 PM

On 7/11/09, changed the oil in my Toyota Sequoia, 08, 5.7L, at 15,000 miles. Dealer had done it twice before, so I thought I'd give it a try. I used Valvoline conventional 5w20, bought in gallon jugs. I ran the car up on some 2X12's to get it up a little to help in removing the skid plate. I spilled about a quart when I took the plug out, the oil comes gushing out, and over ran the plastic drain pan! Took the plug out of the bottom of the oil canister and inserted plastic drain that comes with the oil filter. That part went ok. Took the canister off with a 65 mm oil filter wrench and that went ok. Removed old cartridge and inserted new on tube. Put new oring on and reinstalled the canister. It had a strange feeling to it when tightening. Put aprox. 6.5 quarts in and fired it up to check for leaks. By the time I got out and to the front end, about a quart of new oil had shot out of the oil filter housing! Tightened up some more and tried again with same results. Took the canister off and the oring was in shreds. Fished out the old oring and installed it correctly and tried again. No leaks. Checked the oil and it wouldn't touch bottom of dipstick. Poured what was left of the 2nd gallon and the level came up to half quart low. Wife drove it to grocery shop and when she returned, I popped the hood to verify the oil level and discovered I had left the filler cap off! Retraced to grocery to see if I could see it on the road....no luck. Went to dealer and bought new filler cap and installed. And there you have it! My last oil change! Or should I say, most recent oil change, because I bought an oil filter while I was at the dealer buying the cap, so I can try again in 5000 miles. I'm not whipped yet!

Great post ! Your experience is exactly why I usually take my cars to the Firestone store. I had a filter absolutely frozen on a 3.8 liter Buick. Wound up having to puncture the can with a screw driver and wrestling the darn thing off. Oil everywhere.
For 19.95 (with coupon) I can get 5 quarts of Kendall Syn Blend, a decent filter, my tires inflated to proper specs, and the fluids topped off in less than a half hour. Can't beat it with a stick. BUT...I'm mising the adventure.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 07/19/09 02:55 PM

I did an early oil change in my Corvette yesterday. I was planning on running it out to 0% on the oil life monitor, as I usually do, but I ended up doing it at 12% because my Fram Sure drain plug has been leaking oil for a few weeks now and it seemed to be getting a lot worse. I tried tightening it down, thinking that was why it was leaking, but it was coming from the inside portion of the unit itself. Luckily I had bought a spare one before they discontinued this item from the stores.

So instead of having closer to 7000 miles on my oil, I had to change it at 5800 instead. It was just over 8 months since my last change. Normally I'd do 7k in 6 months, but having no job (and no 50 mile round trip to work) means a lot less miles are being put on my car this year. Not getting stuck in rush hour traffic anymore sure is awesome though! :)

I refilled it with Pennzoil Platinum 5w30 once again, but this time I went with a Fram Extended Guard filter. Unlike the orange can of death, these top level Frams appear to be very well built filters.

I'm going to drop off my sample at Wearcheck first thing tomorrow morning so I'll have a new UOA to report, possibly even as early as tomorrow afternoon (two or three times when I've dropped off the sample first thing in the morning I've gotten the results online that same day)

I want a stout oil in there for an engine that has a 4bbl carb and tends to sit between runs. So I'm sure I'm getting some fuel dilution and moisture buildup. When I do run the engine, it gets a nice run to burn out all the junk. Also running Auto-Rx. Last OCI had same Puralator filter and it was HEAVY!

Hey Frank,do you use the silver cap or the gold cap? Doesn`t the silver cap have more zddp content? That`s the M1 I`ve always preferred


I use the silver cap and havn't seen the gold cap or the red cap in a long time. The silver cap has 1200 ZDDP, a very low 40C of 131.2, and a 100C of only 18.1. \:\!

Just changed the oil in my Santa Fe with some more Amsoil 5w30 ASL and EAO filter.

Changed out early (6K miles / 10K KM) because I'm doing a test on it to see what effect MMO has on it using it in the fuel as the oil has darkened quite a bit since using it in the fuel.

See more in the Fuel Additives section about this.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 09/04/09 09:45 PM

I do extended OCIs with mobil 1. I was checking my oil level (traveled to Wisconsin with family and some friends) and buddy said it looked awfully dark. Said it was too sludgy. I figured that's the way oil looks after 5500 miles but he made me worry. So I gunked out when I got back home (2 weeks ago) and filled with cheap oil without replacing K and N filter. Just did the Gunk out again and installed a 5$ mopar filter and that cheap oil and a quart of that MMO. (Wisconsin sells some cheap Resolute oil in 2 gallon containers). Plan was to drive for another couple of weeks and do another Gunk out flush before putting in the good stuff for the winter. Is there any method or is this pure madness?

Question: How concern should I have been with the dark oil?
Posted by: Saturn_Fan

Re: Post your latest oil change - 09/04/09 09:57 PM

2000 Saturn SL, 105,000. Going to stick with 5w-30 Mobil Clean 5000/Mobil 1 EP filter again until right before it gets subzero. Then for winter I'll use my Castrol Edge 5w-30 that I got on rebate today for around 12 bucks for 5 quarts!!!

For some reason, my Saturn's motor really loves this MC 5000. For the first time, I had zero oil usage (down from using 6 ounces per 3K with Formula Shell/Pennzoil).

MC 5000 impresses me, especially for its price.

I think Gunk Out would be a similar product to a Berryman's B12 or akin to dumping Seafoam in oil.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 09/05/09 07:24 AM

Forget the Gunk motor flush. If you had previous sludge problems before using M1, the M1 will clean up your engine. All that stuff will do is dilute the oil your are using.

1986 Honda VFR700F: I left the Honda filter on (only had a couple hundred miles) and replaced the oil that was in the crankcase (Honda 10W-40) with 2.5 quarts of Shell Rotella T 5W-40 synthetic and 4 ounces of Auto RX. Going for 2,000 on this first oil change.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 09/13/09 06:41 PM

Just did my wife's Camry with my step son. Actually had him do most of the work, but he messed up the oil filter wrench, so I bailed him out. I also checked that he had things threaded and not cross threaded before he drove them home.

Used the last of my genuine Toyota filters for the 2.4L Toyota engine and four quarts of Pennzoil High Mileage 5W30.

Put the remaining quart in another bottle and used the 5qt bottle to return the used oil.

Gave him the bottle and asked him to drop it off.

He's almost 17 and he just got his license, so I'm making him take an active role in caring for the car his mom lets him drive.

2005 Civic D17A1 5MT, 141K miles: Rebate PP and my first go 'round with the honda A01 filter (geeze that thing has a thin gasket). Also, changed air filter, cabin filters.

Next OC I'm gonna put in an engine block warmer. Not because it ever gets cold here in the DFW area. But, because I like to tinker and want to see what it'll do to my UOA's. Going to use it every morning.

when the correct section has a display 1 wide and its stocked in the wrong spot 4wide... lets just say they hate me.

My latest oil change was a few hours ago

1995 Toyota Tercel, 348,xxx KM

Drained out Castrol GTX 5w30 with 6 months and about 7000km on it. and replaced with Canadian Tire Formula 1 synthetic 5w30. Napa gold filter.

After the winter is over, I will be replacing that with Formula Shell 5w30 dino and another Napa gold.

From what I've read here the Formula 1 and Formula 1 synth are identical to Formula shell and Formula shell synth. Someone correct me if I'm mistaken.

2005 Ford Freestyle AWD 3.0 70K miles

I got on the BITOG bandwagon, and got myself some $5.00/gallon oil

Pennzoil Platinum 5W20/ Motorcraft FL820S filter.

The car's seen nothing but Motorcraft Synblend 5W20 on OCI's averaging around 5k (still under warranty). From what I can see through the valve cover (not much) and dipstick, it certainly looks spotless. With 5K OCI's and that motor, I think I could put grapefruit juice in there and it wouldn't matter, but I couldn't pass up the $5.00/gallon PP.

Installed Pennzoil Platinum 10w30 and Wix higher end filter

Going to run it to 510,000km's which means a 4650mile OCI. Then next time run it to 520,000km's for a 6200 mile OCI. Was doing shorter intervals to get the engine cleaned up some before running longer intervals through the winter with synthetic. This way I should only have to do one more oil change before spring time I hope. I hate changing oil when its below 0 out.

I just bought the mustang a couple of months ago. It is a notch with origional paint and interior. It has a rebuilt 306 with keith black pistons,edelbrock performer rpm intake, crower cam with roller rockers, holley carb and full length headers.

I settled for an AOD w/shift kit car because it was in such great shape and so far I haven't regreted it.

Once the bug bites man wink

Mine hasn't been running in the new body yet, or since it was converted to carb. I've got a set of ported GT40's with a Weiand Xcelerator topped with a Holley DP with an HP mainbody. Cam is from Camshaft Innovations, Crane roller rockers, Crane HI-6 box feeding it, underdrives, backed by a T5 and Cobra IRS. Still have to do tubular K and junk before I will say I am "happy" with how it is.

Taken it to the strip yet?

Nope no strip time yet, I'm still working on tuning or just replacing the holley and fooling around with the timing.
Still enjoying driving it everyday to work though!

Sounds like you've got quite the project on your hands there!

They are great carbs, is your a DP or VS? There are a LOT of performance upgrade parts available for them too. A very useful tool for you may be a wideband, because it will let you get that thing tuned "just right".

Re: Post your latest oil change - 10/11/09 04:08 PM

Did a 2-fer yesterday, the Ranger got its yearly change, 5 quarts of QS Dino, 5w30 and a Purolator filter. 17,650 miles. Original, not 117,650 on a rolled-over odometer. The funny thing is that the Ranger has the smallest engine and uses the most oil per change and the biggest filter.

Dakota got 4 quarts of M1 10w30 and a Purolator Pure One filter. And a new set of BF Goodrich Long Trail TA's too. 57,230 miles.

Towards the end of the month the Malibu will get its oil changed, and the Cobalt wants some attention -- OnStar sent me an urgent e-mail that the car hadn't had an oil change in almost a year and is due (1800 miles).

I did my first oil change on the Hyundai Touring at 2848 miles today. I used Pennz 5W20 (who isn't recommending 5w20 now) and the OEM filter. It took my can crushers to get the factory filter off. This seems to be SOP for them all now on new vehicles.

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer:

Had PP 5w-30 since July. Did the first 2k with the FRAM Extra Guard "Orange Can of Death" and then replaced it with a FRAM Extended Guard filter. The oil lasted a total of 8k miles.

I changed it a week ago to Mobil 1 0w-30 AFE and a Purolator Pure One Filter.

2003 Mazda Tribute V6:

Had some Mobil 1 5w-20 with a FRAM Extended Guard filter since August. Noticed some of the 5w-20 was missing and I didn't see any leaks so I assume it was burn off.

Changed it to German Castrol 0w-30 and a Purolator Pure One oil filter.

Did have an issue though. Oil was leaking out of the filter when I turned the car on. I took out the filter and noticed the gasket from the old FRAM was still stuck on the car. Now free from the old gasket, not a single drop of oil leaks. Won't be making that n00b mistake again

Why is that?


Just because MMO (in the crankcase) has received a bit of a raw deal here in the past. Lately, there has been a resurgence of use in this format, myself included. Seems like a good product and I have noticed some great results so far. Any time someone else is willing to try MMO in the crankcase, all the better for us as a forum. We can use all the data we can get.

+1 I've used it for decades, and tried other products with some good results. One mentioned on this board briefly stopped a leak, which has since returned. In the end I keep going back to MMO. After 35+ years of use it hasn't let me down. It cleans the best of all the products I've tried. The price is right and it doesn't matter what kind of oil I add it to.

Glad to see others are have taken the plunge and are having good results with it!

Re: Post your latest oil change - 11/01/09 01:51 PM

I just did an oil change on my wife's 2000 Civic today. It has 105k on it and I switched from GTX 5w20 over to Schaeffer Supreme 7000 blend, in 5w30. It is the SL formula, I bought this stuff way back around 2002 or 2003 and started using it in my 95 Firebird Formula but then I switched over to GC and kind of forgot about this stash of oil I had. I had 18 quarts of it just sitting there, so I figured I'd use it in the Civic (which calls for an SJ oil, so SL is one step newer anyhow) I also used up an old AC Delco oil filter that I had sitting in my basement since probably the same time too, so I'm using up old stock for sure! It's always nice to do kind of a "free" oil change. :)

Re: Post your latest oil change - 11/07/09 08:27 PM

I dumped the AMSOIL AFL out of my Jetta today. Was at the track and shifted 3-2 rather than 3-4 at about 7K RPM. Made a bit of a funny noise after that session but nothing that anyone could really pinpoint, so I dumped the oil to look for metal in it. Didn't see anything interesting, so refilled with M1 0W-40 from the local Autozone as I didn't have any AFL on hand. This is the first time I've filled with anything but the AMSOIL, not particularly happy about it, but ultimately doesn't matter.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 11/07/09 09:15 PM

Ran PP 5w20 for 6k oci in my Jeep Wrangler. (Total of 29k miles, and I go by the OLM) Changed it today to Mobil 1 5w20. I've been runing Ford Motorcraft oil filters on the Jeep as recommended by Jeepers on JK-forum.com. Jeep JK owners had been having trouble with M1 filter anti-drainback valve and getting bad noise on starts. I experienced this, as well the one time I ran that filter. The Motorcraft filter works well, and they are cheap. I bounce back and forth between M1 and PP, primarily going with M1 for winter. I guess I believe it flows better cold, but I don't really know if that is the case.

This engine sounds the same with either oil, so other than the aforementioned perception, I have no other ideas about which is better. I've had great luck with M1 on other engines for years, and I see so many good UOAs on PP, so that's why the waffling. (Plus, I occasionally score PP at a low price.)

I've got M1 5w30 in my Solstice now, as well, with a Supertech cartridge filter. I go by the OLM or 1 year, whichever comes first. This time, the year came first. I've got 24k on this car, but didn't put many miles on it last year. It went about 5k on PP 5w30 last time, and the OLM was at 48%. Same deal in my head between the two brands of oil. Again, I hear know audible difference between the two oils. I had a UOA done on PP a couple years ago and it was excellent. I also had trouble with a PurOne oil filter. The media began to deteriorate at about 4 or 5k on the oil. Supertechs have done very well. I ran one to around 8k miles and it looked great.

Changed the oil in the Odyssey today. 4.75 qts of Castrol GTX 5w-20 and a Purolator Classic filter...nothing fancy but works for me. I bought the van a month ago with 45K on the odo. Took it home for a night before buying and saw it had a white Carquest oil filter on it. When I bought it, I told the dealer to make sure they changed the oil..well, the same filter was on it when I got it home so I just decided to be safe and change it along with the tranny fluid and the cabin air filter.

1995 Nissan Pathfinder, VG30 (3L V6, gasoline)

Purchased in 2000 w/ 112,000 KM and have been using Mobil 1 5W30 w/ Napa Gold (Wix) filters since the day I brought it home. I use a Napa Gold air filter too, changed when the oil is.

I change the oil twice a year, regardless of KMs (late spring, early fall). There is no visible loss of oil b/t changes on the dipstick. If I put in 4L, I get 4L out.

Today, at 249,999 KMs, I changed to Rotella T 5W40.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 11/20/09 10:40 AM

Putting my gf`s Olds 88 back on M1 15W50 (car is nearing 150,000 miles). Her car really "likes" that oil over all the others I`ve tried. I`ve been using dino (10W40) in it at 3k changes. It always comes out black and water thin. Her engine really seems to pound the heck out of oil. Back when I used the M1 15W50 in it,it seemed like it held up much better than the dino,so back in it goes tomorrow morning :^)

I used it in her old worn out Probe once and it made it run like new. Must be a really tough and durable oil!

It looks my like the Firestone over here just depleted their Kendall 5w30 Synth Blend, and has now switched to Safetly Kleen Synth blend.

Just recently I had one car (a soobie) done end October and it got GT-1 (luckily!), but I took the VW to Firestone today and was sad to see it got Eco Power recycled oil from Safety Kleen; yuck. I'm a little worried it'll have sub minimal additives in it, esp ZDDP; I threw in some molyslip for now, just because I was so ticked off.

Why not get a VOA done?

If the oil passed API SM and GF-4, is it even possible for it to have a sub-minimal additive level?

So long as the quality of the Eco Power stuff is satisfactory and consistent, I'd be interested in it; no sense constantly extracting new oil simply to use it once and throw it away. If it can be effectively cleaned and re-refined (considering they refine nasty crude into effective oils, re-refining once-refined oil seems quite easy), that seems like a brilliant idea to me.

It would probably do a lot more to help the environment than a whole ton of Priuses.

Ugh, sub-minimal by my definition... I had just really liked the Kendall stuff as it worked great for me over the past few years, and just now looked at some of the UOA's of Supertech and other safety kleen recycled oil using the forum search. They ranged all over the place but one UOA was not even 500ppm zinc; and the highest was like in the zinc 700ppm range? I dunno, some of these OA posts just didn't look that great for additives elements. They may have improved their additives over time; but I just don't know. Yes it would be interesting for a VOA; I plan to do a UOA in the fall of 2010 to test a new moly supplement.

Re the conservation: If a well over a hundred gallons of fuel is burned for every gallon of motor oil used, will this really make that much of difference you think? Seems like using virgin oil but cutting down on driving or getting a car with 30% better mpg's would still go further for conserving resources. But I guess I don't object to recycled oil if the additives are top notch.

Worst oil change ever.

Drain plug was on so tight that I stripped it trying to get it off. I eventually had to utilize an impact wrench to get it off! Then the Fram Sure Drain SD-1 I bought for it didn't want to fit even though the catalog claims that's what the truck takes so I had to re-use the old stripped plug. Then, the oil filter was on extraordinarily tight. My filter wrench pliers crushed the can and it took two people to get it off! Then, the gasket stuck to the block but luckily I know enough to check before I install the new filter. Took a good 2 hours... at least next time it won't be so bad!

Bought the truck from my mom's best friend. Truck always had the oil changed every 3k miles via the dealership. I have the paperwork to prove it.

Looks like the oil leak started when I started running PP 5w-30. I did that oil change 3k miles before this most recent one. Looks like it is leaking more. Looks like the oil pan gasket. Not 100% sure though.
Posted by: Bill in Utah

Re: Post your latest oil change - 12/25/09 01:10 PM

With 3k OCIs I'd run any 5w-30 and see if your oil leaks go away.

The engine will be protected and last just as long with Pennzoil conventional as it would be with PP or Mobil 1.

The oil companies will not be as well protected though.... whistle

Follow the OLM since you have one. 3k OCIs are really a waste of resources in my book...

Take care, Bill

Oh, I understand. There is actually a service bulletin on the 5.3 motors for leaking oil pan gaskets and the oil cooler lines. I'm not worried about it at all. I'll be getting it fixed Monday. The leak is super small.

I had to replace a new Chrysler battery at around 25k on a Neon once too. I made them cover it under warranty, that is unacceptable..

Follow the OLM since you have one. 3k OCIs are really a waste of resources in my book...

Take care, Bill



Oh, I understand. There is actually a service bulletin on the 5.3 motors for leaking oil pan gaskets and the oil cooler lines. I'm not worried about it at all. I'll be getting it fixed Monday. The leak is super small.


Ended up being a blown rear main seal and rear cover gasket leak. $553 to fix. frown

I'm really surprised, I thought those transmissions were very trouble prone? Is the transmission with the Duratec different than the one with the Vulcan?

It is a different tranny. Although Ford did make changes in 1998 with the Vulcan tranny that made a big differance in durability.

2005 Mazda3 2.3L w/65K
Been running PP 5w20 for 7500K OCI's since 15K but driving habits have changed and I want to do 5K OCI's now. That said, I decided to run MC 5w20 and a MC FL-400S filter.

2004 Chevy Colorado w/85K
Been changing the oil every 5K because there has always been a lot of "burnt sludge" on the cam lobe(s) that I can see through the filler hole (truck was purchased used at 25K). Nothing has seemed to clean the baked on gunk so I thought I'd change it up. Havoline 5w30 (pre-DS) was drained. I put in 4.5 qts. of the new Rotella T6 5w40 and 1.5 qts. of MMO (MMO's recommended 25%). For a filter, I just went with a SuperTech. With 300 miles on the new fill, the truck is running great and things are looking cleaner already (dip stick and cam lobes).

1994 2.5 jeep wrangler, time on oil was 3500 miles, since september. Reason for such a short change is the jeep is only used for high-rpm offroading and desert stuff.

Replaced with a frankenbrew of
1 qt MMO
1 qt Chevronsupreme 10-30
1 qt Supertech 10-30
1/2 qt old API Mobil Clean 5k 10-30
1/2 qt of SM Castrol GTX 10-30

with a Supertech st16 ecore, plan on running for 2k miles.

Malibu: 4 fresh quarts of Q-Horsepower 5w30 with a Napa Gold filter. There wasn't much time on the oil, but I took a sample anyway since this oil was punished through 3 blizzards, an ice storm, and record cold temperatures. Combine this with a ton of short trips, very little highway time, and a fair amount of low-RPM driving this UOA could be brutal.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 02/12/10 01:48 AM

1997 Isuzu Rodeo
SuperTech Synthetic 10W-30
STP S2808 Filter
Peak coolant (green stuff, forget the exact brand)
Fram air filter

My friend Jessica and I changed the oil on her sister's Rodeo. Jessica did everything except the actual draining of the oil (the oil pan was way under there, and she got claustrophobic even with the car up on jackstands). She did the filter change, added the fresh oil, added coolant, and replaced the air filter.

Her sister really neglects the car, and it had run unknown miles on unknown oil. The oil was black, nasty, and when we dropped it off at AutoZone for recycling it there were various little bits that stuck to the inside of the translucent container. The sticker from wherever she last changed her oil fell off and was lost a while back. The front tires are essentially bald, and had been run at low pressure for quite some time, and so are in dire need of replacement (she'll do that within the next week or two). Rear tires are fine.

I was originally going to get Mobil 1 High Mileage and a PureOne filter to help clean out any gunk (looking through the fill port, the interior of the engine was covered with a dark film, but there was no visible goopy sludge) and afford her a bit of added protection if she neglects to change the oil at the prescribed interval. However, her budget was tight, so we settled on the SuperTech Synthetic and an STP filter (I still wanted to get a PureOne, but the only shop in town that has it is a PepBoys, and they had closed for the evening shortly before. When we were there, we were closer to the AutoZone than the Wal-Mart, else we would have gotten a SuperTech filter over the STP.) While at AutoZone, we picked up a Fram air filter and replaced the no-brand one that was in there already. Jessica already had some coolant from when we worked on her Jeep last time, so we used that to top-up the reservoir on the Rodeo.

Hopefully the SuperTech Synthetic can help clean up the engine, as well as be a bit more forgiving in the future if she fails to change it on time. I told her to get everything the oil and filter changed with a 5,000 mile OCI (a bit low for synthetic), as that should ensure the cleaning action of the oil has time to run its course, as well as getting a bit more particles into the filter increasing it's filtering efficiency.

Jessica, however, knows her stuff, and will remind her sister to get the oil changed (or offer to do it herself, with or without my help) at the appropriate interval.

Valvoline MaxLife Synthetic 5w30 / 4.5 quarts
Purolator PureOne 10241
Also changed out coolent / Prestone 50/50 Long Life

Prior to oil change, added Chevron Techron Fuel System Cleaner /
12 Oz bottle in 14 gal fuel tank (at 78,950).

After oil change, I'm using a maintainance fuel system cleaner (Redline Sl-1) of 1.5 to 2 oz. @ every fill-up. Vehicle runs quiet and much smoother since I began using a fuel system cleaner as well as getting 1.5 to 2 more MPG.

Current mileage 82,120

Will change oil & filter out between 6000 to 7000 miles. Plan on doing a UOA at that time.

Shell Rotella T5 Synthetic Blend 10w30 in the 1 gallon jug from Walmart @ $16
M1-209 (Oversized) from Walmart @ ~$8

Moved the car on to ramps and let it run for 5 minutes at 2k rpm to make sure the oil was warm. While drain plug was still off, poured 1/4 quart of the new oil in the crank case. When the oil coming out looked new (wasn't dark), I put the drain plug back on. Put oil in the filter ad rubbed it into the gasket and then drained the excess into the funnel on the crank case since the filter goes on from the top at a slight angle. Dropped the rest of the jug (started at 4 qts) into the crank case and then ran the engine to move it off the ramps and then parked it in the garage and let it idle for 5 more minutes. Checked the oil level the next morning and it looked less than 1/4 quart over. No foaming. Will run this for 7k miles until the odometer hits 110k miles

Just my 2cents but I don't think you need to change the filter. Quaker State filters are great filters for the money, made by Purolator.

Just my 2cents but I don't think you need to change the filter. Quaker State filters are great filters for the money, made by Purolator.


I`m with Third. No need whatsoever to change the filter.

I'm in agreement. They are solid filters. Near the top of what's available in Canada. Maybe only Wix and K&N are better and available in the Great White North.

IIRC the K&N packaging states a 93% or 95% first pass efficiency. Not what I'd call good for the average consumer's uses or goals.

If you need that kind of racing flow, use a SS screen oil filter with a 3 micron in parallel bypass.

Wix and Napa Gold are easy to get in most communities. Purolator Pure One are available if you look for them.

Just changed my 97 Subaru Legacy 2.2L to Amsoil SSO 0W30 with an Ea020 filter to improve horsepower for a nav rally. Changed away from Castrol 5W50 which managed the piston slap well when hot, but felt sluggish in the weak, high mileage 2.2L.

Did not know that oil improves horsepower.

Moving from a 50wt. to a thin 30wt. WILL 'free up' some HP, as it will reduce parasitic losses due to drag. Will not increase amount of HP engine has.

Yes, this is what I meant. Using an oil with 10cSt viscosity instead of 17.4cSt @ 100C.

When you call up Royal Purple's tech line, they always seem to recommend the lowest viscosity possible to generate the most horsepower. Same as they did in this test, and it works. Look at the 5000rpm HP compared to the other brands:

Re: Post your latest oil change - 03/04/10 07:09 PM

Just changed the oil in the Corvette this evening. I went 7000 miles on Pennzoil Platinum 5w30 and a Fram XG oil filter. Will be dropping off the sample at the lab tomorrow morning (and am hoping to get the results by the end of the day)

I added more Pennzoil Platinum and a Fram XG again. Hopefully by the time my next oil change comes along I'll be able to find Ultra, as I'm anxious to give it a try if the price isn't too outrageous up here.

On Saturday I'll be draining out the Schaeffer Supreme 7000 5w30 from my wife's 2000 Civic and putting in Toyota 0w20, along with a Quaker State (Purolator) oil filter.

Previous fill: Mobil 1 Racing 4T motorcycle oil.

As this is a belt-driven CVT, the scooter doesn't share oil with the transmission and so doesn't need motorcycle-specific oil meant for shared sumps. The Rotella seems to be pretty stout stuff based on VOA/UOAs, so I'm confident it'll hold up well. After that, I have a quart of Mobil Clean 5000 10W-40 I might throw in there. After that...who knows?

I realize you like Mobil 1 and think it is a fantastic oil. But using GM and Toyota as examples to build a case for how good Mobil 1 is might have been a poor choice. At least IMO. GM and Toyota are not, at least at this moment, good reps of top quality. To me they represent compaines with lots of problems, on a decline. Mobil 1 is held in much higher regard here, and considered a leader. Again JMO

Mobil 1 is a decent oil, I don't think its the end of everything and thats all everyone should need. I do use it on customer cars and my own Taurus SHO because i have some faith in it. It is one of the wider used synthetics and you don't see cars dropping off the road from Mobil 1 useage left and right.

I used them as a comparison, because it seems like when you are on top, everyone tries their best to dethrone you. When GM was on top, everyone tried to take em down a notch, most noticeably the Toyota kool-aid loyalty club. Now that Toyota whent on top, they recieve all the scrutiny..... I think its human nature of people to try to talk smack about popular things so it makes them feel better about what they got.... hence the whole point of the comparison, not to say that Mobil 1 is actually like Toyota or Chevy's business practices... just that it is very popular and the poo will be flung!

A fresh fill of Kendall GT-1 Semi Synth 5w30 at Firestone on 3/30 (to replace the almost 5 month old winter oil fill 3500 miles later; the old fill was also Kendall 5w30).

As soon as the weather warms up a little I'm going to throw in some Moly along with ~300ppms zinc (as zddp) and plan to do an oil analysis on this supplement--which actually seems nothing more than about 7g of fine MoS2 dust. http://cgi.ebay.com/10-Moly-MoS2-engine-...=item35a83b1264

As plain and boring as this additive is, I'll be somewhat eager for the analysis to learn whether Firestone's GT-1 bulk oil has the titanium add package in it already.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 04/06/10 11:21 PM

Yesterday - 2003 KLR650 with 4,800 miles. Switched oil out from Kendall "thumper oil" to Castrol Syntec 20w50 "muscle car" synthetic oil. KLR's shear the heck out of oil from what I've read on the KLR650.net website and this oil is well though of for these bikes. I guess the high amounts of shearing are due to oil going through the clutch, transmission, ball bearings, roller bearings.

Changed oil filter to one made in UK that's supposed to be pretty good: "Hi Flo Filtro" Sounds hokey to me, but supposed to be good.

And yup, it took 2.5 liters of oil right on the money.

The "doohickey" in this bike has already been updated. These get spring adjusted at every oil change, so I pulled the rubber plug and did that, too.

This was the first OCI I've done on the bike. Printed the torques off the KLR650 site and used an inch pounds torque wrench on everything.

The job was a little messy. Live and learn - I'll do better next time.

Now filled with Valvoline 5W-30 dino and a Motorcraft FL-400 filter.

Want to do annual OCIs, but the consumption made Mobil 1 0W-40 just too expensive. Guess I'll change oil in April & October.

I checked the oil today in preparation for a trip and found none on the dipstick. I had just checked the oil 200 miles ago and it was only showing 1/2 qt low. It seems like the consumption suddenly skyrocketed after I began driving in the hills, or the oil got very "tired" all of a sudden.

So, I took the car to the local Sears Express Service and had them do their $19.99 oil change special with Valvoline 5w-30. We'll see what happens to the consumption.

The bottle has been silver for awhile. The viscosity was bumped up a tad when ATL came out, and maybe it's my snout but it smells even.......cattier........

09 Forester; out with the Havoline DS which held up well through a 5K OCi (No thinner coming out than going in) and Formula Shell 10w-30 GF4/SM going in. Driving around the block after the OC the Shell didnt seems as "slickery" as my favorite MC5K 5w-30/10w-40 mixture. I just wanted a cheaper alternative to RT10w-30 which is pricy now thats its T5, plus the T5 is a gallon and the FS is 5qt jug and 4 bucks cheaper.

2010 Equinox. 4 cylinder DI. Using Schaeffer 7000, and an AC PF457 cartridge.
Changed the FF at 500 miles.
Running this to 3000, then a switch to Schaeffer 9000. I'll watch the OLM, but already know I wont have the courage to follow it. I don't trust the DI motor yet for fuel dilution.
BTW... The first tank of fuel in mixed driving, 60% highway, 40% in town, 28.2 MPG in eco mode.

Ran 4k on the Factory Fill and changed it out for Castrol EDGE 5w30 that I got back when the rebate was going.

Filter is Mobil1 M1-301 as an oversized filter.

Ended up putting in all 5 quarts. I might be overfilled by 1/5 of a quart. I'll check for bubbles and remove oil through the dipstick hole if I see any.

I had the same problem getting an extended guard off my car for my last oil change. I tried so hard to get it to turn that I literally tore some of the skin off of my finger, gave myself a blister and a bad bruise that swelled up on the palm of my hand. I know I put oil on the gasket too, really weird. I didn't think my oil filter wrench would work... come to find out, it did fit the smaller filter. duh

I'm now running Pennzoil Ultra in the Corvette! I couldn't wait for it to come up to Canada and a friend of mine was in the US so I had him pick me up 2 jugs of it (should've gotten more, as I need 7.5 quarts to change the oil in my car)

I'll run it until the oil life monitor hits zero (which is always around 7000 miles) so I should have my first UOA by around October or November.

I only drove it about 15 miles since I changed the oil and I honestly don't notice a difference from Platinum at all. The engine is just as smooth as before, still has the slight valvetrain tick that all LS1 engines have and throttle response is the same.

That means you are putting your filters on too tight. You should be able to remove the filter by hand if you installed it right. lol

How do you know that an oil filter only needs to be screwed on hand tight but you're still ignorant to the fact that oil looking dirty is actually a good thing?

You do know the definition of the word don't you? It's not meant as an insult. I was just kind of confused as to how you knew that an oil filter was supposed to only be put on hand tight, yet somehow the knowledge that dirty oil is a good thing escaped you. I just think it's kind of ridiculous how many people are still ignorant, meaning they don't know and are uninformed, with regards to dirty looking oil being a good thing because it means the oil is cleaning and containing any contaminants within the suspension itself, instead of allowing them to adhere to engine internals. For you to insinuate that you don't like Platinum and will not be buying it again because it looked "dirty" is just plain silly. So you won't be buying it again because it was doing its job? Ummmm...ok. Suit yourself.

I honestly don't give a [censored] what oil you spend your money on. I could truly care less. I just don't want you, or anyone else reading your post, to go on any longer not knowing that dirty oil is a good thing.

lol.

I'd normally agree but I didn't put it on any more tight than I usually do. I usually have no problems getting my filters off by just using a nice pair of grippy gloves.

btw RageofFury - I got it off with one of my adjustable oil filter wrenches that I didn't think would fit it. I tried using my plier style first and it wouldn't work because it was too big for the small filter, so I didn't think the Lisle one that clamps the sides I have would work, but it did.

Both of my hands hurt so bad today. That was my first Fram oil filter and my last. I oiled the gasket, screwed it on by hand not too tight. I was able to turn it side to side somewhat when I installed it. Somehow the gasket fubar'ed and jammed up the filter. Argh it was such a pain. It was satisfying ramming a screwdriver through it. If it wasnt full of oil I would of likely thrown it across the yard. Mobil 1 filters from now on!

Re: Post your latest oil change - 04/26/10 10:32 PM

Stuck filter again for me! Changed my oil, and it was the second time I've had a filter stick, and the gasket broke off.
1st was a Fram and the 2nd an FL1A, so I must be tightening them too much, and I do it by hand.

Wife's 2009 Torrent GXP: 5.5 qts of Havoline Synthetic 5w-30, SM rated, and a Fram 10060 Extended Guard filter.

I ran the OLM down to 29% (6925 miles OCI), and the high feature V6 had no detectable oil consumption over that period.

99 S-10: 1 quart Pennzoil 5w-30 synthetic SJ rated ( the old stuff with Pennzane ), 2 quarts Pennzoil 5w-30 synthetic SL rated, and 1 quart Havoline 5w-30 SM rated mineral oil, and a SuperTech ST3387A filter. This got rid of some old odds and ends I had lying around.

I ran the OLM down to 44% (5067 miles OCI), and the high feature V6 had no detectable oil consumption over that period. The oil I replaced was SL/GF-3 rated and I was uncomfortable going more than 5K miles on it.

This is the last of my Havoline synthetic stash from the great Advance Auto Parts $1/quart blowout.

'97 Aerostar, Tuesday.
168K.
Second run of Havoline 10W-40 DS, bought on clearance last spring from Wally, Puro classic filter.
Was going to use either Tection 15W-40 or Maxlife 10W-30, but decided to run through the three changes of the Havoline I have.
I will then go through the four changes of Maxlife I have on hand.
The thing has used more oil than it has in the past for the past two changes.
This may just be age and miles, but I will check out the PCV system and see what I find.

Yessir, the book calls for 6.2 quarts, but I've never been able to get that in there!

It's a fairly high-revving (over 7K RPM, after some minor tuning!) 24v 6-cylinder (2.8L VR6) engine designed to be run hard, with a 10K OCI from the factory, so... I would guess a larger sump is better than a smaller one...

Compared to stock, yes it moves well. It should be on-par with a 1.8T now in terms of peak HP, but with a fairly flat powercurve across the rev range.

6018 miles on the oil. Was shooting for 5K, but not really concerned about goin over. Doing 1/2 factory OCIs for now, will sample at 40K and probably move to 10K OCIs from there on out.

My first oil change in the Subie:

Mobil 1 0W-40
Bosch 3323 filter (IIRC - the listed oil filter was SMALL, I searched around on the net to find a larger filter).

Re: Post your latest oil change - 05/30/10 06:01 PM

2002 Tundra;4.7V8

6.5qts of 5W-30EP and a M1 filter. Bought (2)x5qt.

Filter change requires the removal of a 20-ish lb belly pan so I'll probably run 7K-8K OCI on this fill and then just do another 7K-8K before changing the filter. Pretty severe service, many cold starts and 1-2 mile trips.

Friend's vehicle and I thought I would save her some $$ by offering to do an OC; side benefit is I can use the other 3.5 qts for my OC

1992 Accord, 198,700 miles
Delvac 1300 15w-40
Pure One

I figure I 'd better use the Delvac I purchased on impulse a while back.

I was aiming for 10K on the M1 10W-30HM, but the dipstick is showing "add" and I'm out of the stuff. 8700 miles (much of is very short city trips) and one year's service is enough. Sample off to Blackstone this week.

I don't know how long I'll run the Delvac. 5K at least...

A quick trip to the store didn't reveal any 'sluggishness' (or any indication that I'd just change the oil!) The car revved and idled as before. Despite trying, I could feel no difference.

2009 Chevy Malibu with 2.4L Ecotec. Super Tech 5w30 with Fram cartridge filter. OLM at 13% after 8100 Miles. Also got free rotate and balance on the tires because I previously bought the Lifetime deal from WalMart at $7.50 a tire. So an Oil Change and tire service came to a grand total of $27. Can't beat it.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 06/01/10 04:34 PM

The new owner of the shop I've done business with for the last twelve years charged me $55 in January for an oil (Castrol GTX 5W-30) and filter (NAPA) change for my 2007 Impala. Told myself I'd never go back, but he does "soft" state inspections or at any rate has never "upsold" me.

I asked him today after another uneventful inspection if he would take $10 to change my oil ($13 Castrol GTX 10W-30 gallon) and filter ($6.49 Purolator Pure One). He wanted $20 but settled for $15. Not too bad, and he's close to my house.

Also, with the future in mind, I saw the ad today at Advance Auto Parts for five quarts of Valvoline dino and a Purolator Classic filter for $16.99.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 06/11/10 09:24 PM

Today, changed oil for the first time on the new 8-yr-old 2002 Dakota 3.9 V6.

Had the local service station put it on the lift & do it, because I wanted to get a good look underneath. Happily, no unpleasant surprises!

Since I had lots of oil stashed away, and ~10 filters to fit the new truck, my expense was for labor only- $12, & no hassles about looking around underneath. grin

The old oil was Castrol Syntec- but the bottom of the oil fill cap looked pretty grungy, & the oil was *Very* dark. smirk

Went back with:

*Formula Shell 10w30 dino(4 qts)(this had a good rep for cleaning a few years ago, whether earned or not)
*Wix-made Penske KMart oil filter, Wix 51085 equiv.
*~4.5 oz Lube Control.

I feel *Much* better now! thumbsup

Just changed both cars today. Used the last of my $10.88/5L Valvoline in the G6 with a Wix filter. The G5 I only ran 5000km and will do the same with the Pennzoil & Wix that I put in there this time. Then I'm probably going to start using a synthetic in both, PP, Petro-Canada or maybe even GC at least in the G5 and get some analysis done.

Wife is taking a long drive to Elmira, NY for her college reunion. I am NOT a fan of an OC before a long trip (no need whatsoever unless you will overshoot your OCI) But I wanted to get something MORE viscous in the sump on "Ole' Knocky" the 09 Forester with a persistent hot engine knock. Was going to use Shell Rotella 5w40 T6 but opted for Delo 400LE due to $$(and no need for 5w in the Summer!). Car runs smooth on this oil, and I see no noticeable fuel mileage issues. She still knocks when warm and mileage goes down when hot. K-sense pulling timing?

Folks to show what vehicle and what oil/filter. Does a couple of things;

1. Shows what oils are being used.

2. If a member is thinking about a certain oil, they can browse through this thread and PM the member using that oil.

Keeping it in one thread is a good thing!

Will run this oil with the ARX for ~ 5K, then use the rest of my small $3.74/gallon Tection stash for a 3K rinse, leaving two quarts for the mowers.
We'll see how she likes this oil, since I'm not sure what grade Castrol was in it.
Seemed pretty thin on drain, but it is a hot day, and the car had been driven twenty five miles before I drained the oil.

The sound went away after about 50 miles of short trip driving. I can aonly assume the oil was doing a bit of cleaning?

The truck is doing great since switching to synthetic.

I have been going for roughly 6000 mile intervals, and the oil isn't even turning black in that time (dark brown, but definitely not black).

I maintain a 2003 Malibu also, and the coolant temp used to do that for us too. It eventually went away. It mainly did it after we had the intake manifold gasket replaced, and I believe the coolant wasn't bled properly.

Oops, I just re-read that and you said oil temp -- are you sure you don't mean the coolant temp? The 03 Malibu didn't have an oil temperature gauge factory installed.

Took out 6 qts of Quaker state high mileage (bought it on accident... meant to pick up maxlife) and an AC Delco PF61 filter. Ran about 2500 miles on this oil as I did 500+ miles pulling a 7x16 enclosed trailer on some windy days (ran at 4K RPMs for a while)

Put in 6 qts of Mobil Clean 5000 10w30 with a purolator classic filter... plan on running it 6K miles unless I do a lot of heavy pulling.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 07/18/10 05:38 PM

Changed oil in the Go-Kart my brother bought for his kids last year, has a Tecumseh 6 hp OHV engine. Used the MityVac to get the old oil out- age, brand, weight unknown- but it sure looked bad! The air filter was the worst thing I've ever seen, super filthy, big hole knocked through it, wire screen torn through- but Ace Hardware came to the rescue, had the right one in stock!

Refilled with:
Shell Rotella 15w40
1 oz Lube Control

And gave it a new air filter!

A friend in Regina runs an independant Parts store and I got them through him. It's the only place I've ever seen them.

Sadly, I've just noticed that they're now switching to the Defense filters, which appear to be a cheap Fram. I think I'll just get Wix, Napa Gold, or Quaker State locally.

Replaced with the new Pennzoil Euro 5W-40 and a PureOne filter.

Might be all mental, but it sure did sound tight with the Pennzoil. Depending on how well the Pennzoil does AND if it becomes easily available, I might be going with GC at the next change out since I can get it at Pep Boys.

Planning on a 4k oci to meet warranty needs. Subaru calls for a 3750 oci with a turbo.

They show a trend of what people are using in their engines.

If you don't like reading them, then don't. Personally I find what ACTUAL oils and filters people using (and hopefully what OCI) very informative.

Changed the oil on my moms car for her yesterday. She had told me that she was over on her change so I figured I'd be nice and change it for her.

1991 Buick Park Avenue 142,500 miles
5W30 PYB and ad Acdelco pf47 filter.

Got the oil changed and tore the old oil change sticker and it turned out that she only had 2,500 miles on here oil. The local quick change place had been telling her to do 2,000 mile oil changes. I put a new sticker up for 3,000 mile oil change and reset her olm beings it hasn't ever been reset since she bought the car. Her car does quite a bit of idling and mostly in town driving, so I figured I'd change her oil for her after 3,000 miles and maybe do an analysis for her to see if it can be stretched out a bit more.

I should add that the place she took it to had been using 10w30 PYB and a Pennzoil filter. When I put the oil filter over the opening in the oil barrel that my boss dumps his used oil into, it drained in a matter of a few seconds. I think I might cut that filter open and see why it would drain so fast.

3qts PYB 10w30. That's all it holds.

Purolator standard filter.

Spray-painted the filter with high-temp gold.

Seriously.

I was bored, okay?

Now it kinda looks like a PureOne filter.

I'm sure it will filter better, now.

Engine doesn't use a drop of oil.

Gotta be the paint, I'm thinkin'.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 08/21/10 02:16 PM

I just did an oil change on my friends 1994 Nissan Altima GXE, he bought the car used with 156,000 miles.

When he got the car he wanted me to put some MMO into his oil, so I put in 16 ounces of MMO and I checked his oil level the next day and it was fine.

I told him to come back after driving 1000 miles with the MMO in his engine, the oil that was changed today came out very DARK, it was PITCH BLACK.

Since the car holds 4.2 quarts of oil I told him to pickup 4 quarts of 10W-30 motor oil from CarQuest, it came out to $2.68 a quart.

He told me 5W-20 and 5W-30 brand Carquest Dino oil is going for $3.28 a quart.

So, we changed his oil filter with a CarQuest Oil Filter, ironically the oil filter that was taken off was a CarQuest oil filter.

I added 4 quarts of oil and 24 ounces of MMO and told him to check the oil level tommorow, I put the remaining 8 ounces of MMO in his fuel.

I told him to get the 10W-30 oil as opposed to the 5W-30 motor oil because it is summer and I knew we would be adding some MMO.

I will see how his oil looks when we go to change it again, and next time I just may have him get 5W-30 instead.

Two changes today, my 2003 Jetta and the wife's 2008 Rabbit. Both took six quarts of M1 0W40 each. I put a OEM filter on the Jetta and a Mann on the Rabbit.

The Jetta doubles as a track day car. This oil had about 4200 miles on it and seven track days, or about 14 hours of track time, on it. Sadly, I got a few nice sized chunks of metal out of it, I'm thinking rod bearings. Most of this is dirt and bubbles, but you can see at least one nice chuck in this picture:

That car is my son's car. The car had 170K miles when he got it. It was a KSP car and it also did some taxi duty. He got the car dirt cheap. The car runs just fine. Besides the regular maintenance the only major issues were a tranny at around 250K miles and a new a/c at around 280K miles. All work was done by a independent. The car owes him nothing even with that work done. The car uses 1 quart of oil between changes which is about every 5K miles. He plans on getting a late model Mustang or another P71 in about 6 months or less. A police chief who lives nearby has a 07 P71 and will be getting a new one in about 5 or 6 months so he is thinking about getting that one if he can get a good price on it.

Only a quart every 5K isn't bad at all. Hope he gets his hands on that 07.

Next fill likely to be PENNZOILs' new 5w-30 due out in OCTOBER .

Today - 2010 Mustang at a Mobil-1 Lube place...asked for Mobil-1 oil and filter - went for coffee. Time to pay, seemed too cheap, but noticed they used Motorcraft semi-syn. Oh well - figured I'd run it for 3k. Got home, noticed they put in 5W20 instead of 5W30 (OEM req'd). Put car on ramps to install fog lights - that went so good I elected to dump the 5W-20 "engine flush" and refill with Mobil-1 5W-30 and left the filter on.

Klingdon20 how do you like the Fram Synthetic Oil Stabilizer?
Posted by: klingon20

Re: Post your latest oil change - 10/09/10 06:30 PM

Its too early to tell, let me put a few hundred miles on and i will let you know.
But i can tell you that the consistency is nothing like Lucas stabilizer, this stuff seems more like an engine oil it flowed just like like the castrol syntec, my best guess would be this additive is not a tacktifier but more of a zink and moly boost with a sythetic carrier.
I am not a chemist or know for sure what is in this product so the statements made are only observations and guessing.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 10/09/10 06:38 PM

Thanks for the info. Where did you get it? I saw the dino oil version in Family Dollar or one of those stores for $2.50/qt. They didn't have the synthetic version, and Fram doesn't show it on their website, at least I couldn't find it.

I shook the dino version bottle and it had the same consistancy as oil.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 10/09/10 07:16 PM

2001 Mercedes Benz E320. 3.2L gasoline naturally aspirated engine with 63,000 miles. FSS (flexible service system) indicated service B in 1300 miles, changed early as oil had 12,500 miles on it.

Used 8.2 quarts Mobil 1 0W-40 and Mann fleece oil filter. M1 0W-40 meets MB 229.5 which is what MB recommends for all gasoline powered FSS cars.

Also changed the engine air filter and cabin air filters (both Mann filters).

I couldn't stand the thought of my mom paying $500+ for a service B at the MB dealer for what amounts to a glorified oil change.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 10/10/10 04:17 PM

Today I changed the oil on my sister in law's 2003 Saturn Ion. This vehicle has the 2.2L ecotech engine that takes 5 quarts of oil and has an "in-engine" oil filter. I used 5 quarts of 5w-30 Havoline Deposit Shield that I had in my stash. The GM oil monitor has this car going about 7,200 miles between changes on average, this one was 6,900 miles. The engine is up to 84,000 miles.

Re: Post your latest oil change - 10/10/10 04:47 PM

Drained 6.5 qts of Castrol GTX 5W-30 out of my '85 Corvette track car. The dipstick was smelling "fuelish" due to a lot of mapping experimentation on the ECU. Lots of starting and idling trials, some chassis dyno time, a few trips back and forth to work, and 4 track days. Probably not much more than 1500 miles, total. The oil looked pretty thin and black for no more miles than that.

Refilled with Mobil 1 5W-30, which makes it common with my Camaro, so I don't have to keep two different kinds of oil around. Still have 2.5 quarts of GTX, so I guess that goes in the lawnmower, little by little.
