Good Monday evening BITOG smile

This filter and some ST 10w30 was off a friend that works at the food bank with me; off his late 90's Caravan. He doesn't drive a lot also. Does once a year changes. Van has if I saw odometer right; 70,xxx miles.

Put a FRAM TG 3614 since I had some courtesy of Wal Mart cleaeancing the older ones out along with some Rural King 5w30 Conventional

Enjoy the photos

So far so good. I do not intend to run it long. The next oil change will be in maybe 2 weeks or so. I did hear some startup rattle the other day so I will be looking close at the ADBV.

One of the better looking PH3614's I've seen, thanks for posting.

I would have thought that van to spec a PH16, but the two are essentially interchangeable anyway the PH16 is just bigger.

You seem to be getting some use of those clearance TG and the Rural King oil.

2,800 miles in a year? I thought I was low with ~5,000 miles/yr.

Easily could double the OFCI to two years, given the appearance of the filer and the low miles.

Otherwise, looks fine, as expected.


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

I don't think I would do 2 years on an orange can. A TG or Ultra, sure.
