Passenger Car Motor Oil (PCMO) - Gasoline Cars/Pickups/Vans/SUVs

What do you consider 'cheap'? Menards puts FS on sale on a regular basis. If $1.99 is acceptable, I'd solely use that. Too convenient to spend time worrying about getting the best possible sale. Originally Posted By: buck91Typically I just stock

M1 AFE would be the only oil I use, except that I personally can't stand to wait that long to change the oil, and I dump it before I need to. It's a personal challenge that I deal with, but the first step towards recovery is recognition, right?! In

OP here. The Rendezvous has 95,000 miles now. We drove a lot on Sat, Sun, Mon. Sat - was relatively bad. It did the slip-bang from take-off about 5 times. Sunday and Monday it didn't do it once. Temperatures were the same, driving style, speeds

The engine calls for any 10W30. Basically I got it used and it was fine for a while, then the governor gave it up when it backfired and the engine ran away to max RPM. I now manually control the speed of the engine but the damage was done. It ran

The "car rich" kids with their $$$ Civic Si and Subaru WRX and Mitsu Lancer EVO must drive a stick I would guess. My wife would still not concede to a auto trans (or CVT!)yet at almost 60 years old, she.

How about a big dose of Auto-Rx. A local landscaper did that trick to revive a riding mower that someone gave him because of the smoke screen it produced and the complaints of neighbors. It took running the engine a few times but it worked just find.

I find in practice with the forester chain engine that the oils with the Na DP/AW have "cleaned" better than the moly Boron package. I am not aware if this has been proven through API Cert in-situ engine tests - the manufacturers keep this

If it's getting down to -40 a couple of times a week for a two-month period, you should be running a 0W-something to ensure good cold flow in that extreme condition. Then change to something thicker when the warm weather comes.
