    6.0 Powerstroke Oil Reccomendations

    I picked up a 2006 f250 with the 6.0 powerstroke and was just looking for some recomendations on motor oil. The truck has 240,000mile and I am currently running Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel Truck with Archoil 9100 and a Motorcraft filter (plan on 5k OCI). Turuck is my wife's daily driver and will see...

    2006 F250 ATF/Axles/transfer case

    So i picked up a 2006 f250 with 240,000 miles (6.0 powerstroke with 5-speed auto) and i have no maintenence records for the truck. I'm pretty confident the trans/axles/transfercase have not had their fluids changed recently so I will be looking to do so in the near future. Just looking for...

    Winter oil in tdi

    I am currently running delvac 15w-40 in my 2000 jetta tdi in the summer months but I know I should switch to something thinner for winter. I was thinking of just running a gasoline spec 5w-30 but want to be sure that will not cause problems (short or long term). My other option was to spend...

    2002 F150 ATF Change

    I plan to change out the ATF in my 2002 F150 as i am not sure if it has ever been done. I bought the truck with 190000 and its currently at 218000 miles. My main question on atf is if synthetic is worth it? I was thinking i would use Mobil 1 but cannot find much information on it. I would...

    Rear Dif Gear Lube for 2002 F150

    I know my 2002 F150 specs/factory fills synthetic 75w140, but is that thick of an oil really nessicary? Would I see any negative effects if I switch to synthetic 75w90? Would I see any fuel economy increases? When I do tow with the truck I would say it is only moderate in weight, i have a...

    2002 Ford F150

    I am not a huge fan of amsoil. I did actually change the rear dif with mobil 1 75w-90 last summer, and it seems to be working well. I run Mobil 1 5w20 in the engine and I am happy with it, but i was unsure how their gear lube and atf stack up against the competition. I have already changed the...

    2002 Ford F150

    Looking to replace all of the fluids in my 2002 Ford F150 and would like to get the best MPG possible. I do some towing with the truck, but basically a lot of back and forth to work and the cabin. I would like to go synthetic because I know they can usually offer better protection, better mpg...

    does anyone know what terry is "not recomending" it right now? I am looking for a oil that can take the punishment and abuse of a weekend warior track car and still get me to and from the track. From the little bit of research i have done, redline street oil to me seems to be the best for...

    So since mobil 1 has done the dastardly deed and made the switch to a group three i was thinking of using redline oils in my 400ish horsepower 4g63 (2.0l turbo engine). redline seems to have the support of this site when it comes to high performance engines, but it dosnt have the super long...

    Mobil 1

    I ocasionally hear that Mobil 1 has changed to a non pao base stock such as Syntec or PP. i am assuming that the answer to this is still the same and they have not changed to a non pao, but i still feel the need to ask as it has recently come up again in something that i was reading. so does...
