I never heard the timing components fail.
I heard the 4.6 do with guide wear. I see alot of these engines with high miles.
Cam phasers but otherwise a high mileage motor.

The OP here is a friend of mine and he was having trouble posting a picture of his UOA, so I am posting it for him. This was on a 4,000 mile OCI with Amsoil SS 5W-20.

UOA looks pretty benign; as expected.

The lube could have gone a lot further; pretty expensive to use Amsoil for 4k mile OCIs. Perhaps consider a conventional lube; will get the same performance for a lot less investment if the OCIs are going to be 10k miles or less.

How long has the vehicle be on Amsoil, mile wise?

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

As far as the lube going further that's what I'm looking to do with the uoa use it as a guide to see how long amsoil will actually go and to see if it is worth it and to prove a point as well lol isn't to expensive tho I'm a dealer for amsoil now and the 5w30 signature series I'm running in it now with the amsoil eao11 filter cost me about 75-80 dollars a change

Why so expensive? I'm using SSO 5w20 with an EAK15 oil filter and it costs me $65 Canadian ($52 USD at 1.25% Exchange), is there labour in that?
