    11k UOA PP SN+ 5w30 18 Edge 2.0 Ecoboost

    First UOA! 2018 Ford Edge 2.0 Ecoboost with 5w30 Pennzoil Platinum SN+ run to 11k miles (75% highway driving). Expected the oil to be in pretty bad shape (OLM went to 0% at 10k miles). (Oil ran from 40k to 51k odometer miles) From Blackstone Labs: "Your Ford Edge couldn't have asked for a...

    Oil Rec. Please - 2013 Subaru STI - Harsh Driver

    I've had good success with Royal Purple HPS 10w40 in a Miata, although Redline 0w40 is also a popular choice. <a href="" target="_blank"></a>

    5.3L LM7 Lifter Tick Solution

    UPDATE: Unfortunately the tick returned after a few hundred miles. So I gave in and filled it up with 15w40 Mobil Delvac. That reduced the ticking by 80% and is now barely audible! I make sure to let the engine warm up before driving off in these colder temps to be safe. My oil pressure is also...

    5.3L LM7 Lifter Tick Solution

    The Rislone concentrated treatment is a 7.8 cSt viscosity at 100C (close to a 20 weight oil). I'm only using the 5w30 because of the cold winter temps here in Illinois and short trips not warming up the oil much. <a...

    2004 Escalade ESV, 6.0L, oil recommendation

    I've found Mobil and PP (and PYB) both made my 5.3L tick quite noticeably. Mobil Super HM with Rislone quieted things down for me (160K miles). I think these engines need a good oil cooler before using a more expensive oil (mine did not come with one from the factory).

    5.3L LM7 Lifter Tick Solution

    Hello BITOG, I thought it would be helpful to pass on how I significantly reduced my lifter tick on my 2004 5.3L Tahoe. Here is the history (I picked it up with 160K miles, 1 owner): 0w40 Mobil and Purolator filter - First time I noticed ticking 5W30 Pennzoil PYB and Purolator - Ticking...

    1995 16V turbo - cam cover off

    Royal Purple 10w40 might suit this engine well. It comes highly recommended from the Mazdaspeed Miata owners (1.8L turbo engines).

    Super duty running, 0w20 afe questions

    M1 AFE oils contain 150ppm less zinc and phosphorus than their non-AFE conterparts. If you are running your engine hard I would recommend going with the regular 5w20 M1 and its higher anti-wear additive package. <a...

    2013 Mustang V8 oil recommendations

    The large sump (8 quarts) should keep your oil temperatures at safe levels for street and drag use (<250F). I recommend getting oil temp/pressure gauges and monitor those before going up in oil weight. 8 quarts of 5w20 is a lot of oil, either for longer OCIs or harder running. Here's an...

    Oil for 2000 Saturn SL 1 w/91k miles

    I would run any of the high mileage 5w30 oils available for a couple 3K oil changes to clean the engine out. You may want to try the Mobil 1 High Mileage oil if you do not have any oil leaks right now. Shorter OCIs will be the main factor in getting the engine cleaned up (if it's dirty). Do you...

    What's your favorite oil? And why?

    Pennzoil YB - Low cost, great VOAs/high moly and keeps my Hemi quiet. Pennzoil Ultra - Great cleaning additives, longer OCI for my Corolla, runs quieter than M1. Mobil 0w40 - Quieter/easier engine starts, stable at high oil temps, good value for the money. All of these oils are Walmart cheap...

    Oil for New Subaru FA20

    Pennzoil Ultra is a great oil and will keep your new engine clean. It made my Corolla 1ZZ-FE engine a little quieter on startup/idle. It's about $30 for a 5 quart Walmart jug. I have a lot of confidence with 5w20 oil. The only vehicle I used a heavier oil in was my turbo Audi (oil temp always...

    oil for ford F150 vct noise? help?

    A high moly oil like Pennzoil yellow bottle 5w20 might help. Hemi engines respond well with this oil (same/similar to the Mopar OEM oil) in trying to alleviate some valvetrain tick at idle. My truck is quiet so I plan to stick with what works.
