It depends on the individual ABS module. On my '97 Ford Taurus I had to change out the module. It has the normal two lines coming in and 4 lines going out. But the valves inside the module were normally open which means they flow was unimpeded thr

The problem with US is that the way ILSAC organises things, any all mineral (be it Group I or II) 10W30 will have been formulated half way to being a 5W30. As a result it will have a far higher Noack than something you might find in Europe. Given th

I've used Pennz Platinum 5W-30 in my 2010 Silverado with a 5.3 up until the last change. I used Mobil 1 this time around because I can buy it cheaper with the rebate. I'm sure the Mobil will work just as well as the Pennzoil.
