Can't believe that there isn't a thread showing what a engine looks like after using Brand X oil being how passionate everyone is on this website about motor oil πŸ˜‰

If you got pictures of a valve cover off, or maybe a engine being torn down, let's see those internals and how they look!

When I had the driver's valve cover off a few months ago at around 45k miles. There was a leaking spark plug tube seal and a new valve cover with all the seals pre-installed was a couple dollars more than just the gaskets.

O it has lived on Motorcraft 5W50 and FL-500S filters. changed every 5K miles its whole life.

GM 2.4l, Ecotec, with GDI, 89K miles, on quick lube oil changes and following the bogus Oil Life Monitor. This was taken during a timing chain replacement. Thankful it only slipped a few teeth and did not destroy the pistons and valves.

That's what this thread is about as I'm unaware of any other thread that has been created for this specific reason.

318 in my D150. Unknown millage since the ode stopped working over a decade ago. 150? 175?
Over the years mostly Exxon Superflo, VWB, or QSGB.
I took the valve covers off to change the cooked valve seals. Its had a few overheat events in it's lifetime whistle
