I’ll start out by saying these oil brands in question are what I use most often and now have two new vehicles on M1 0w20 EP, but like PP for 5w30. What he said is bull since we all know PP does not stand behind long OCI’s like Amsoil, Castrol, and Mobil … if PP don’t, I won’t …
He’d been better off making some other argument …
As a mechanic … would not let this guy touch my lawnmower … much less listen to anything he says on lubricants …

Sometimes his information sensible other times no so much. About other times like about motor oil it's nothing at all.

There are times I turn to Scotty for oil and service advise... oh wait, no there aren't.

He needs to stop trying to tell people about oil. Clearly he's just schilling now.

That's the best you can do? Picking at a typo? duh If you bothered to read my posts, you'll find I have learned the language quite well.

Find somewhere else to troll.

At least he's basically correct when mentioned the cost parity between conventional and synthetic oil changes.

Scotty has actually transcended gas and has reached plasma, the 4th state of matter.

So true.

He may have had decent advice at one time, but now he's gone from eccentric to delusional.

I watch him less now than I used to. I cannot stand his annoying voice and yelling! About 50% of the time he is right about most things. Being a mechanic 40 years doesn't make you a good one...

Re: Pennzoil Platinum is the only synthetic oil...as per Scotty - 10/11/18 03:56 PM

I used to watch him in the past purely for the entertainment value. His videos lately have gotten particularly annoying and click baitey.

ETCG is one my fav YT mechanics but his Fairmont, and now Mini series don't interest me. I wish he'd pepper in more regular repair vids.

SMA is my fav channel at the moment.

If I Google something looking for info and Scotty pops up, "I May" give it a watch but most of the time I will watch a few or more from different people.
One thing I notice, and maybe it is all for show, is the state of his garage and his wife's car (that he works on in this vid) Talk about a slob and being disorganized.

Call me anal, but seeing those things does not scream competence/ability to me.

This isn't news, most mechanics don't know squat about oil. I had a lot of them tell me to avoid Pennzoil at all costs because it sludges engines, back before I knew about BITOG and actually believed it! Same with mechanics bashing Fram filters.

I have seen Mechanics and I have questioned how in the h*ll did they ever get their license? Not knocking all of them of course as I have 2 buds who are one and they are great, like most, but sometimes I wonder?

I suppose it's like the old saying, "The World is not filled with a**holes, they are just strategically placed so you run into one everyday"

Re: Pennzoil Platinum is the only synthetic oil...as per Scotty - 10/11/18 04:59 PM

I can't believe how many people praise him in the comments and really seem to look up to him. It's really sad.

What's the video where he talks about Boxer engines? I can only imagine "Why you should NEVER buy a car with a boxer engine!"

The quick-strut video is too much... "Don't use junk $88 quick struts" and then shows $800 OEM struts. And THEN proceeds to reccomend Autozone strut bearings. With his disregard for safety, I wouldn't take one bit of his advice regarding compressing springs, etc.

Organization does not breed competence nor ability. Some of the most organized people I have worked for are so incompetent I would not allow them to lead a fat colony to a buffet because they would get lost.

I know what you are saying and unless I knew and trusted him personally, I wouldn't enter the place if his shop/garage/place of business ever looked like that.
An organized shop means an efficient shop to me. Scotty's screams inefficient and sloppy workmanship. I can picture him, if he couldn't find the proper tool, choosing something as an improvise just to get the job done. No thanks!

I like PP and all, but scotty kilmer aka hillary clinton is once again spouting nonsense. Here's the kicker, he gets paid big bucks by sponsors and youtube to talk schutz that some of the more impressionable viewer will proceed to evangelize as gospel. He's the one that thinks that toyotas are the ultimate and german cars should be avoided, right?

Yeah, you go ahead and keep spinning on that one word, which I might add was typed when I was tired (it was 11:30PM).

As long as you're gonna do that, let me provide a rebuttal, in one word. Frame

I mean, I COULD go back and point out all the glaring punctuation shortcomings in virtually all of your posts, but I won't. Have a nice day.
