Given your location I wouldn't worry about it but seeing it probably doesn't see much high speed use I would probably go with a xw30 or xw40 next time.

Might actually be the oil filter and not the oil Did you switch filters? Sometimes new oil is slightly louder to me and then it quiets down after a couple hundred miles.

I have seen *ONE* bad filter in my life that had 0% oil flowing through it. Huge manufacturing flaw, that one....

Wait about 1000kms and see how it is. Every time I change oil it seems my car takes awhile to get used to the new oil and quiet down.

Wht is the local store brand?

Does it have the sae starburst on it?

Some off brands advertize themselfs as a particular oil when they are not. The API symbol and starburst are good things to start looking at closely. Rating SN or SM. Id you see “compatable with SN rated oil”. Run.

This is a good site to check for that

I mean the oil filter is probably just fine...but sometimes different oil filters make engines sound differently. I.E. on my Liberty, Fram Ultras make it a bit noisier/clickly but Fram TG and Wix ones work just fine.

Yes its API SN.
Would you all change out the fill, or just leave it until the next Oil Change

Lube Guards biotech will add some esters and moly that may quiet it down if you want to consider an additive. Most additives I wouldn't touch, but the science behind this one is solid. Poor man's redline.

Was the filter changed and what brand filter did you put on? In cases like this it’s the filter especially if it’s a generic offbrand.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Why didn't you use the Royal Purple HPS in your signature?

I'd dump the cheap oil and go back to the Valvoline.

Yup, why take a chance on a $3000 engine, when new oil is $20 ... Go back to Valvoline.

Do a new filter of different MFG. WIX would be nice, but what can you get?
