    Confused Why Does Changeover Timing to Synthetic Matter

    I just purchased a new WRX 2004. The only facts I know about it is a that break-in is 1000 miles. The first oil change listed is 3750 miles severe. I already violated the 4000 rpm rule in the manual on the test drive and on occasion now at 75 miles. (its very easy to surpass <img border="0"...

    More Fram Stuff/Fram Filter Life

    <blockquote>quote:<hr />Originally posted by Mike242GT: <strong> Or just change the filter and top up the oil. </strong><hr /></blockquote>Out of curiousity, if you change the filter won't a bunch of oil come out of the motor as the filter is low or just some?

    More Fram Stuff/Fram Filter Life

    I had Walmart change my oil. The manager stated they did not have any Fram's in stock at the time they changed my oil and were using another type. Apparently they did have a Fram as I have one installed, I saw some orange under my car with some gray on it....It does not worry me too much as I...

    Will SuperTech breakdown in high heat/stress?

    Your driving style will kill the motor not the oil. If you change the oil at 2000 miles you should be fine. You can spend at bit more (not much) on Chevron Supreme ($1.14 at Walmart) which seems equivalent to Castrol and Pennzoil.

    Could there be any importance in dates?

    <blockquote>quote:<hr />Originally posted by Mystic: <strong> After the attack on the USA on September 11, 2001 (9-11-01) I noticed the 9-11 in the date (like an emergency call) and wondered if that 911 had been deliberately selected. Could major terrorist attacks be taking place on certain...

    What is your OCI and brand of oil being used?

    Nice job on breakdown etc. If you breakdown again you probably should have a dino and synthetic breakdown to give a clearer picture of OCI.

    SuperTech Filter Life

    <blockquote>quote:<hr />Originally posted by Thomas Pyrek: Remember when you swap over to do one shorter synthetic interval as it may cause the oil/filter to get dirtier more quickly. I'd say at least change the filter at 3.5k or so and top off with oil. [/QB]<hr /></blockquote>I have noticed...
