    Amsoil signature series 5W30 in a Xterra OCI?

    Here's what it looks like. Getting pretty dark, I think my engine is just rough on oil and my stock airbox isn't really that freat at filtering out contaminants.

    Amsoil signature series 5W30 in a Xterra OCI?

    Been trying Amsoil signature 5W30 in my 2014 Xterra with the 4.0 VQ40DE V-6. How long would you say a extended OCI would be? manual has recommended 5k OCI's from Nissan long as I can remember. I'm running a K&N oil filter and I'm at 6k miles atm.

    Shop put 80w90 vs 75w90 in.

    What type of harm? Its a open diff. No LSD. Petty sure they said GL4.. I could be wrong. Edit. They said it was a GL5 on the phone.

    Shop put 80w90 vs 75w90 in.

    Took my 14 Nissan Xterra into a driveline shop today to have my rear diff inspected for a whine on the power side at 60mph. Everything checked out according to them, backlash, etc. Possibly the gearset is worn but the cost is prohibitive to rebuild. ( $2500. 00) vs finding one at a junkyard...

    Hype behind Shell Rotella T6?

    Can someone explain how a oil formulated for diesel engines works in a motorcycle designed for wet-clutch operation? I've always used Mobil 1 racing 4T, which is increasingly more expensive now. I've heard and read about Shell Rotella working in motorcycles?

    What oil for racing Yamaha "2008" R6

    Oil has a shelf life whether its been stored or sitting, oil tends to absorb moisture after awhile. I would dump and start fresh. For casual riding the old oil might be ok. But a fresh start would be ideal.

    Mobil 1 4T vs Castrol 4T?

    Looking at some oil for my 04 Honda CBR600RR, I usually use Mobil-1 10W40 4T, recently the priced was raised, so naturally Castrol racing 4T came to mind at $8 a quart vs 10+ for mobil-1 nowadays. Only difference I could find is Mobil1 is rated API SN+ whereas the Castrol is API SL which is a...

    Do I need a high milage oil?

    Do I need a high milage oil?

    I was at Walmart cruising the oil section. I decided to buy Castrol EDGE 5W-30 high mileage because of the apparent extra wear packs. I have a 2014 Nissan Xterra with the VQ40DE with 80k miles. My OCIs are every 5k usually with mobil 1 filter. Just wondering if theres really any benefit...

    Kirkland 5W30 runs rougher in Xterra?

    This is my observation so purely subjective here.. I notice the engine seems to rev easier throughout the RPM band with less effort, is the best way to describe it. Just like you can tell when engine oil is getting near it's end of life vs new...

    Castrol Magnatec Interval?

    I just got off the phone with Castrol customer service. The rep stated they dont have any " recommended intervals" but suggested going off what the " manufacturer recommends". That has a me worried a bit, the ironic thing is their Edge line or extended performance has been tested to a higher...

    Castrol Magnatec Interval?

    What is the suspected interval length for this oil? I'm using 5W30 and can't seem to find any official source, except for Malaysia. Not the U.S. Market, sources indicate 5k-10 miles. <img src="/forums/graemlins/smirk2.gif" alt="smirk2" title="smirk2" height="15" width="15" />
