Like I mentioned earlier:

Amsoil SSO Oil. \:\!

Amsoil EAO Oil Filter. \:\!

And also: An Amsoil EAA Air Filter. \:\!











What am I looking at $$$$$$$ wise here???


Approx Retail Pricing ($10-$20 PC will be about 20-30% less)

Amsoil SSO Oil = 6 qts = $60

Amsoil EAO Oil Filter = EAO32 = $15

And also: An Amsoil EAA Air Filter = EAA123 = $47

HOWEVER - I REALLY RECOMMEND A FEW SHORT INTERVALS AS A MINIMUM or AutoRx before another "extended" oil change.


*** Finally gettin' this thing done: PRICELESS !!

I agree! Besides the low chromium, silver is zero. Wear is low.

How many miles ago do you suppose the Super Tech oil filter went into permanent bypass?

I'd like to see the oil filter cut open. I don't think Amsoil is the way to go. The cooling system needs to be pressure tested. Then any leaks need to be fixed. I needs short oil changes till then. None of this will happen with a clown like this guy. He'll have to replace the engine. Then he'll post online about what a piece of junk GM trucks are.

I think Warranty is only up to 36,000 miles, not 80,000

REDDOG


The oil filter for the GM trucks don't have a bypass. The bypass is in the block, and I bet it's stuck in permanent bypass from sludge.

now this is my type of dude...2 quarts low on a big engine and 3 oil changes...totally indifferent..and yet if he had sprung for 8 xtra oil changes for 200$, engine would probably be fine...cant be bothered...or even add oil...i bet there wouldve been less damage if he had maintained the oil level


And just think, he's a HVAC service person. What do you think his work looks like? It's called job security. Do [censored] work so you get called back. Must be a union man.

You should give the finance company a copy of the oil analysis. But they wont care. They will just sell it to some poor sucker.

Shoot, and I was just going to say I would provide the SSO and filter for this experiment.
