Passenger Car Motor Oil (PCMO) - Gasoline Cars/Pickups/Vans/SUVs
Jump to new posts Re: Formula Shell Full Synthetic Oil 5w30, any good??? by route66mike @ 07/28/14 10:09 PM

Why wouldn't Shell Oil Products U.S. (SOPUS) make all their synthetics in GF-5/SN types the same? QSUD, Pennzoil Plat, and Shell Synthetic should be the same, to save money on development and certification costs.

Bluestream, when I look at your photo blown up to full page at photobucket, there does seem to be rust developing on the scraped area and underneath the coating in several areas. Look closely and you can see brown areas breaking through the black

You sure do like reviving old threads... Anyhow, the most interesting part of this is that the filter above has torn pleats (you can barely make it out)... no one caught on to that.

I'm not aware of any 5w-20 that can't take a 0w-20. The 0w just means it doesn't get as thick as the 5w when very cold, (which is a good thing).

Why do you need a cup wrench for a filter with a textured finish? Even my arthritic hands can handle putting a filter on and off with a textured finish.

Its all about the dremel. First cut the can off, then with patience slowly cut your way through the threaded ring. Then you can split it in half.
