    5w20 vs 5w30 in kia 2.4L

    I forgot to mention the most important part, OCI! My KIA Care Plan is 5k, I will schedule AT that time. They were booked 2 weeks out on Saturdays so it went 6xxx, but under 7.5k max. Not concerned

    5w20 vs 5w30 in kia 2.4L

    My 2019 2.4L Sorento calls for 5w-20 on the cap and the manual says either is fine. I will run 20 and it will be fine, if not it's 100,000 mile warranty will cover it. I will reap the benefits of 20 .... My preferred dealer puts in Total Quartz semi 5w-20, back-up dealer conventional 5w-30...

    Ford Duratec 3.7 Water Pump Failure

    My beloved 2009 Mazda 6 3.7L just had a catastrophic engine failure on Saturday at 126K. Either get rid of it or replace the water pump if you are near 100k.

    DIY: How to spark plugs 2009 Mazda6 3.7L V6

    I replaced my plugs yesterday and it took about an hour, easy work. I used the NGK LTR6IX-11 or 6509 that I gaped to 0.053 cost me around $44. Seems to run the same but the old plugs are showing age. I took the time to wipe out the throttle body also it had some soot in it. 83,080 miles...

    DIY: How to spark plugs 2009 Mazda6 3.7L V6

    I think they are from the factory, they state 100,000 or 60,000 miles for schedule "A" or "B" Factory plug part #s CY01-18-110. I'll keep you posted when I do mine in a few weeks.

    Any updates? I'm getting ready to do mine @ 83,000 miles. I ordered NGK LTR6IX-11. Did you leave the gap or change it to Mazda specs?

    Cabin filter with Bounce prefilter.

    +1 use one that has been through the drier, I use them on the front of my computer to catch the goodness. If they are wrinkled just iron them flat and cut with scissors.

    75w-90 instead of 75w-140

    The D35 has been around for years... 85w-140 might save you some $$. Where do you live AL? Doubt it gets freezing down there to often. The Wally stuff was under law suite over vis. issues a while back and the label now says "Recommended for".

    75w-90 instead of 75w-140

    Many of gears have spun many of miles on dino, 75w-140 is only really available in synthetic $$$$. With that said my D44s have Mobil1 75w-140, lol because I couldn't make up my mind. I think I was looking at 80w-90 at the time. Mobil1 was $16qt. ouch! Not sure I would do it again because of...

    0w30 in Jeep 4.0L?

    Here's some GREAT oil with "real" ratings/specs. To even meet ACEA spec the oil must pass very strict wear tests, cam wear being one of them. So if the bottle wears the ACEA badge you can rest assured that it will perform. Plus being "High Mileage" it has extra detergent and seal conditioners...
