Temps are fine. Same as always. I will dump it. Could a failing water pump cause this?

The GN's used flat tappet cams IIRC. I used Rotella in mine and it used to be popular with the GN crowd but it doesn't have the good stuff in it it used to have. ZDDP will help. The Valvoline VR1 would be my oil of choice for the GN.

Denso FTF filters are top notch. I think they make them for themselves. They're cans are quite thick (#butthatinnuendotho), and pleats are quite straight. Combine that with a silicone ADBV, and P shaped baseplate o-ring, like some OEM Toyota filt

I take my oil to the transfer station in my town. There's a tank there that you just walk up to and dump the oil in yourself. Nobody hassles you, makes you sign your name on anything, or even looks at you when you do it.

We are very happy with our 13 Traverse, seems like a decent deal to me. You might get a good buyout at the end of the lease if you want.

It's in the air box with the main air filter. I owned a 95 w/5speed. Just follow the hose that runs from the oil fill cap area, it leads to the air box. The element is held in by a clip.

Jump to new posts Cause of Purolator Media Tears by slalom44 @ 07/21/14 09:49 PM

I have a theory why so many Purolator filters are tearing: The bypass valve has a very small spring which does not allow it to open up very far during cold starts. This cold winter we just had meant that almost all oil was flowing through the bypas

I guess I'm lucky that I work somewhere with a large fleet of vehicles. We have a 200 gallon tank for used oil and a couple 55 gallon drums for filters. So, all my used oil and filters just go to work with me.
