Noticed this in the jug after doing an oil change on my Silverado. My funnel filter caught some. Itís goop chunks/blobs.
Whats up? I emailed Pennzoil yesterday and waiting reply.

Looks like something put into the bottle after it was opened. Or is that just me?

Ok,

1) Was the seal top seal/cap intact when you bought it and just before opening/using it?

2) How soon after pouring this stuff did you notice these extraneous alien beings?

3) If chunks of stuff came out why did you continue pouring?

4) What was the general color of the fluid upon pouring?

5) Was the jug underneath the vehicle at any time?

To the OP, where did you buy the oil from? Is it possible you had a bottle of used oil?

Not a troll. Posted same on Jalopnik Opposite Lock as well.
Lid plastic seal was uncracked. I bought about 2 weeks ago. I noticed the sediment goop just as I was about to pour my old used oil into the jug for disposal. There was no cross contamination

I've never posted before because I've never needed to? I'm not an oil aficionado so I don't post on oil forums. I just became a member to inquire about this. My user name on Silverado Sierra Forum is mooseknuckles1 I can go post there if it tickles people for me to do so.

Just say NO to this insanity. And Chewie, I wouldn't say PUP is this site's darling, tig1 has about 23,000 posts saying he's done 10k OCIs on Mobil 1 for the past 4 decades smile

PUP is at least #3 on the darling list... wife, mistress, then girlfriend. It fits for PUP because everybody complains it's not available and most of the time it costs too much. BTW I have about 13 OCIs worth of it on the shelf in the garage LOL

Jesus really no help eh. Not even a thought? I'll stick to the Silverado and Cadillac owners forums. A lot more welcoming to new people with questions/problems. If anyone is willing to offer insight I would appreciate it. In the meantime I'll wait for Pennzoil/Shell CS to email back.

If you're expecting us to analyze these particles from afar and under questionable circumstances then by all means go elsewhere.
