I tried looking online for the specs on this oil and i cant find anything. Castrols websight is pretty vague. I see the oem approvals on the jug but i was just wondering if it met any euro specs. Or honda turbo spec. It seems to me that the oem specs on the back are rather weak. Most dino will meet them. It does meet the gm dexos spec so i guess its a good oil. Also be nice to see a voa of it soon.

According to Castrol and their published Product Data Sheet, the oil meets only the standard North American specificatins: API SN, ILSAC-GF5, Dexos-1, Ford WSS M2C929-A, Ford WSS M2C946-A, and it meets engine test requirements of Chrysler MS 6395.

That's all they have to say.

Yeah i went to the castrol websight. I was hoping for more i guess. For a full syn oil id think it would have more oem approvals and atleast some euro specs.

I usually use pp5w30 and fram ultras in everything. But for 17.00 bucks i figured id buy a jug. I used it in the wifes expedition. I know its good to go in her ride. I guess if i decide to go castrol again ill just go with edge.

Reason why i ask is because my car now has almost 80,000 miles on it and ive noticed since around 65,000 i been using oil between oci,s. Car went back into hyundai for a new cat converter at 70,000 miles. Also about ten thousand miles ago i noticed shiny specs of material in my oil filter. I ended up changing my oil like five times in two weeks to get rid of that shiny stuff. Hyundai said that was normal. Yeah rt.

My car never used a drop of oil between oil changes now im putting oil in it once a week to keep it to the full line. Im gonna keep track of the amount now. Im gonna change the oil tomorrow with pp5w30 and fram ultra and keep track. Car only takes 3.2 quarts with the filter so i never let it get lower then 1/4 between full n low on the stick. Told hyundai about it and they say its normal. Well up until around 60,000 miles it didnt use any so why now

Change out the pcv valve with an oem one. Even if the old one still rattles change it out. The internal spring can weaken or break around the 60k mark. Magnatec is one of my favorites. But I'd go with some Maxlife this interval and see if that slows down the consumption.
