I've never heard of a GM Ecotec engine "abusing" its oil like this. I think I'd join others in recommending short oil changes for the next while. Do you ever get a clue of the clumping on the dipstick? Does the oil get black quickly on t

I think the difference between Havoline and Chevron seems to be based in regional marketing rather than actual physical distinctions between the products. Western states tend to get Chevron-labeled products (including Chevron gas stations), and east

I've wondered about buying new a/s for winter, at the start. Either replace every fall, or buy a new set and keep the old tires, and swap back to old tires come spring. Although, something that dawned on me the other day, I wonder if you could buy

I'd think of using a bicycle tube and some hose clamps, pump it up and see if it holds air pressure. Squirt with soapy water if necessary. What washers are you going to use? I know the problem was disimilar metals, wanted to make sure you had that

Thanks for this, Joe. I have been wondering about this oil. I run it in my old GMC pickup with the 307 SBC, and in my riding mower.
