Hi folks,
Was pretty skeptical of the 10K factory OCI recommendation when my father bought this Corolla. Did this analysis to actually see how it was doing. Looks like I have nothing to worry about.

Looks great! Doesn't get much better than that. Very boring report which is a good thing. I'd prob keep it to 10k since that's what the manufacturer recommends.

Nice report, but with the calcium (way too high) and magnesium (way too low) levels this oil is almost surely not Mobil1 0w-20.

I checked my TGMO UOA 0w20 and the calcium was 2115, magnesium 19, moly 28. So that prob isn't it either. Hmmm.....

You guys are probably right. I could have sworn it was Mobil 1, but it seems I was mistaken. It has been awhile since I did this. For my next one I made sure to write down what I used and put it in the oil sample bottle. Thanks guys!

What oil are you running for the current fill?

That's a pretty clean running engine. Good results for whatever oil that is. Haha.

It's probably SuperTech oil from walmart!

Curious minds want to know! Are you a 100% certain or could it Pennzoil, Quaker State, Valvoline or something else? Any of those ring a bell?

Still 80 % certain it was Mobil 1. Not sure which color bottle though. I just changed it and dumped PP High Mileage 0W-20 in. Ill do a UOA when 10K is up in a few months grin Then I will be exactly sure.

The older formula for Mobil 1 0w20 AFE had all calcium and no magnesium. This was from a few years ago.
