    They seem to be doing a good job on wet and snow covered roads since I had them installed on my Cavalier. All around good tire.

    MotorGuard M100 oil filter change

    A310 Are you still running 5w-30 in that engine? Just checking because I'm about out of my stash of 5w-20 (owners manual recommendation - 2008 V10) and I'm wondering if a switch to 5w-30 would be beneficial in any way. xtell

    Valvoline Premium Blue Restore 10W-30 in a Honda 2.4L

    Stick with your original plan of 6000 to 8000 miles with this oil. In the big rigs this oil is run a lot longer. You are close to your goal. Don'tr give up !!! Nuff said xtell

    0w20 for heavy driving?

    My Chevy Cavalier has been running on 0w-20 without issues. It is supposed to have 5w-30 but I get better winter MPG using 0w-20. nuff said, xtell

    Why drive gentle if hydrodynamic lubrication achieved?

    I plug in a "Scan Gauge 2" into my vehicles every now and then and drive around and see what sort of data the sensors pick up. What really gets me is the amount of time the Automatic Transmission Fluid takes to get to operating temperature. I definitely have made changes to my driving style...

    Bleed and refill?

    My as well go ahead and bleed the breaks. That way new fluid will be in all the lines and once properly filled without any potential air in the lines, you will be able to truly see if there is a leak somewhere in the lines (in the case the fluid does continue to go down).

    Mixing oil

    The oils are so close in weight it will not make much difference. Just put it in your vehicle and forget about it.
