    '97 Audi Cabeiolet - 650 mile Amsoil

    Hi. The letter I attached below is what I sent to Blackstone with my oil sample. Its pretty well explained what the story of my car is. I usually buy always the "full synthetic" oil. Its just makes me feel better. This particular car and engine set up is proven in the audi community to run very...

    Vw 2.0 tsi filter - MANN makes STP, WIX, Purolator..etc

    Next time ask them to just check out the next (after the 2.0tsi) engine filter. Its cartridge. I think 2013 VW Jetta 2.5 5 cyl uses it. For now the purolator are the same story like this - made in germany. Also possible to be the unupdated part. In my case the store had both of them. go figure

    Vw 2.0 tsi filter - MANN makes STP, WIX, Purolator..etc

    On other aplication probably. There could be so many. But purolator is owned by Mann so on many cases you would have like here - not just rebranded or reverse engineered filter but made by mann as appears probably on the same production line I should get the purolator one and see whats inside...

    Vw 2.0 tsi filter - MANN makes STP, WIX, Purolator..etc

    Thanks the 10600 but which of them you mean? they are 3. And why Mann and purolator are not the same? Purolator classic is 1:1 with MANNexcept the paint outside

    Vw 2.0 tsi filter - MANN makes STP, WIX, Purolator..etc

    Hi guys. I have posted this in another forum (VW specific) but it is important. Have seen here some people having doubts if the Mann made in Germany is better than Mexican or American made filters. But appears that it country of manufactoring depends on the car/engien the filter is made for. For...

    '15 MkT Stretch Limo 3.7L - Valvoline 5w20 syn

    You nailed it. The water pump is an issue. But it does not apper on models after 2013-14 i believe. Or At least was updated of some sort. It sounds catastrophic to have coolant in big quantities in the oil but We also have a 2012 Lincoln Mkz with the 3.5 non turbo and the pump sure did fail. The...

    '15 MkT Stretch Limo 3.7L - Valvoline 5w20 syn

    Tcp71. Its not underpowered at all. I wish you can try. This engine is high rpm so power is great. For the new o e is even better 77 grand prix Ok but does this mean the Valvoline has no moly at all?

    It's synthetic I forgot to mention because I use by default only so called "full synthetic" oils in all my vehicles Also I will ask if you know where will the molybdenum will come from in the oil sample?
