    Mobil 1: Noiser Engine = More Wear or Just More Annoying?

    I actually changed the oil on my 4runner from M1 EP to Pennzoil Platinum and suprisingly, the engine is much quieter than before.

    GC or BC in Audi 1.8t?

    I recently found an autozone in my area that carries both gc 0w-30 and bc 5w-40. The question I have for the castrol veterans is which would give the best overall performance and protection in a 1.8t? The car has no consumption issues and has almost 100k miles on it. I am just finishing up an...

    Amsoil 15W-40 or M1 T&S 5W-40 in A4?

    Can anyone give me a recommendation on which of the oil mentioned in the subject would be best for an Audi 1.8T? It has almost 100k on it and I know the engine is prone to sludge so I want something that will keep it clean and keep it running smooth. I would like to use it year round and I...

    Does anyone know if GC 0W-30 can be purchased online or anywhere in Utah? I would really like to try some but none of the auto stores here sell it. Any help would be great.

    Which filter for Rinsing phase?

    I am currently finishing an Auto-Rx cleaning phase on a '97 Audi A4 1.8T with 90000 miles. A question I have is, what would be the most effective filter to use for the rinsing phase of the process, and why? The filter options I have to choose from are Fram, Purolator Premium Plus, PureOne...

    M1 0W-40 or 5W-40 for A4 1.8T?

    My father drives a 1997 Audi A4 1.8T with 90000 miles on it. I am changing the oil next week and wanted to run a question past all the oil veterans here, would there be any advantages/disadvantages to running M1 5W-40 over the M1 0W-40, or visa versa? They both seem like great oils so if there...

    Which oil for a1988 Honda Accord?

    Which type of synthetic would you use in your '95 Accord? I live in Utah and sometimes the winters dip below 10F. Do you still think a HDEO would be okay?

    Which oil for a1988 Honda Accord?

    I recently purchased a 1988 Honda Accord Lxi with 150k miles on it. I don't know how well the previous owner took care of the engine. I am currently in a cleaning phase with Auto-Rx. My question to all the BITOG veterans is, which oil should I use after the cleaning and rinsing phase? I was...

    Mobil 1 0W-40

    Maybe someone can answer this for me. Could I use M1 0W-40 in my '02 Toyota 4runner? I have heard it is really a high end 30wt, is this true? And if so, would it be something that could be used in a toyota engine? I'm also trying to get the best gas mileage as well and since I can't find GC...

    M1 5W-40 vs. M1 10W-30

    It never gets below zero degrees here. Would the M1 5W-30 and the M1 10W-30 keep my engine just as clean as the M1 5W-40? Someone told me the 5W-40 has more of a robust additive package. Does that not make much of a difference in the toyoya gas engine?

    M1 5W-40 vs. M1 10W-30

    Would M1 5W-40 provide better sludge protection in a Toyota 4runner engine than M1 10W-30 or 5W-30? I would like to keep the engine sludge free as much as possible so if anyone has any input, I'd love to hear it.

    M1 5W-40 vs. M1 10W-30

    I just got a new toyota and I just simply want the most bang for my buck. I would like to have an extended drain interval but at the same time I don't want to accelerate the wear and tear on the engine.

    Thanks Amkeer. I'll give it a shot. Would you suggest the purolator premium plus or the purolator pure one?

    Which oil for '02 4runner v6?

    Would you suggest mobil 1 over amsoil? Would the Mobil 1 Truck and SUV 5W-40 be a good formula for the 4runner or would it be better to stick with the 5w-30 or 10w-30 M1?

    Which oil for '02 4runner v6?

    Does anyone have a recommendation on which oil works best for an '02 Toyota 4runner with 30k? My wife and I want this car to last a very long time and we want something that will provide outstanding protection as well as good gas mileage(if possible). Any suggestions would be great.
