    2.7 Ecoboost

    I'm running Magnetec 5w30 in my 2018 2.3 eco. I would like the warm and fuzzies of a thicker oil but am waiting for api sp oils in a 0w40 for lspi and timing issues. Wish castrol made a 10w40 Magentec her win the states. No uoa but at 5-6k the oil comes out water thin and may have the...

    Frustrated! trans well maintained, still grenaded

    I know gm factory remanufactured 4l80e's run about $4k. Installed with 3/36 warranty. Not much of a warranty if dealer doesn't install it. The 4l80e would have my vote for one of the best tranny's ever made.

    Higher viscosity = higher operating temps?

    IMO I doubt seriously if an end user would be able to discern the the difference. Just to many variables. Now in controlled lab setting it would be possible measure the slight variation in temps.

    Should I service a '97 4l60E at 167k? Leave alone?

    Previoosly being servicedf this is probably the reason why the tranny is still running well. I have always used Maxlife in my vehicles and it's done very well. I did use Castrol transmax synthetic for drain and fill at 4k miles on my new Explorer to start getting that garbage already turning...

    Recommended Oil For 2019 Mazda CX-5 2.5L Turbo

    Castrol Magnetec is what I opted for in my new Eco boost Explorer. Or any SN+ rated oil will be fine. Just make sure it's the "updated" SN+ and not just SN. SN+ being formulated to help protect the newer DI turbos better.

    19 Tacoma 2.7 M1 0w40 10k oci

    I think you have a winner with the 0w-40! I would continue to use it. You have evidence to back up its performance.

    I think you have a winner with the 0w-40! I would continue to use it. You have evidence to back up its performance. Dont worry about the other thread noise. Just an eco warrior thinner is better remnant.
