You never ask the Quick Lube service tech what oil and filter they use?
The used oil is still amber @ 3K.
This was my grandmothers car that bought from her in September when she gave up driving at 92 years old.
I usually did the maintenance on it with Amsoil OE 5w30 and a Wix filter, as it usually only got driven 3000 miles a year, but my cousin borrowed the car for a couple months when his transmission went out, so he had it changed at a quick lube, I think it was a local "Service Pro", and knowing my cousin, I'm sure he didnt spring for any upgrades, so I'm guessing "service Pro" branded bulk conventional.
Cronk: what oil and filter went back in and on? Thank You kindly
Nice cut and post BTW
This filter was taken off in September when I got the car.
Amsoil OE 5w30 and a Wix filter went in/on.
Will be changing again next week with Amsoil Signature Series 5w30 and an Amsoil filter.
Car has 177k miles.
Seven years ago we inherited Grandma's 10 year-old car @25K on the odometer. She was also 92-1/2 at the time and couldn't drive anymore. Macular Degeneration.
RIP Busia! She did make it to 100 years-old.
Looks ok. Jobber filter and I'd speculate likely with a China coo. Been seeing a few 3k mi oci/fci c&ps recently. One would think most any filter should/would be able to handle that fci. Otoh, recent RA Ultra Power posted here shows there are exceptions.
Thanks for c&p.
