    Drain Filter If I Reuse It?

    If it is easy to get to, I choose to drain the oil out of the filter mount. I have never had an issue getting the filter sealed back on properly. That is just the way I do it.

    O'reilly's house brands now both made by WIX- pics

    Cut open a MicroGard the other day and construction was not like a WIX but it was sturdy and I was pretty impressed at the way it held up to a pretty tough OCI. (10-11k 1 year). Great deal.

    DIY oil change for Maserati 2002 Coupe.

    I think he meant a picture of your car, not the oil. I want to see the car too!! Pennzoil Ultra 5w40 is a great oil and may I suggest Mobil 1 0w40 or Castrol 5w40/0w40 which are all oils that can be had for a much better price when on sale. Obviously your car does not ask you to meet very...

    Noisy Valvetrain with Castrol Edge 0W-40 API SM

    Olas, don't take anything personal. We all get blasted every once and a while:) OP: Acoustics are very interesting. I seriously doubt you have a problem and I would just finish this run and go back to what you used with no issues (Helix 5w40).

    2013 Silverado / 5.3L / Mobil 1 5W-30

    Looks good. The sample is 5100mi but it is not the factory fill right? Did you dump the FF immediately?
