    Switching to M1 0w40 causing more chain noise

    Oh yeah, I mean like the latest formula is a step up and could have less noise. 😀

    Switching to M1 0w40 causing more chain noise

    You’re changing mind. Might try the newer M1 0w40 formula.

    Switching to M1 0w40 causing more chain noise

    Interesting, since it was shear stable after 5k, what do you think would cause it to have more noise than others?

    Switching to M1 0w40 causing more chain noise

    Do you think I should stay with the 0w40 M1 if I get the newer formula or go with the QS/PPE 5w40, concerning my chain concerns?

    Switching to M1 0w40 causing more chain noise

    This is bottle of M1 I still have that I bought months ago. The Walmart website shows different specs. Must have got an update in formulation.

    Switching to M1 0w40 causing more chain noise

    I was thinking about going 5w40 QS since PPE is MIA around here. I’ve read that’s it’s pretty much the same as PPE.

    Switching to M1 0w40 causing more chain noise

    Definitely, I would love to inspect it. Just found it odd after 110k miles of my use that a noise would happen after a different oil was used. Also what makes the timing system in this motor a hassle is that it sits on the back of the engine, plus the parts and timing tools would out cost...

    Switching to M1 0w40 causing more chain noise

    I had been using 0w40 castrol and switched to m1 after reading several threads here praising it over the castrol since it has lost some certs with its latest blend, however my 2006 Vw Rabbit has developed chain noise with this oil. I have done two OCI with it and after about 2k the noise...

    And because of this, I have changed to M1 0w40 in my VW 2.5 07K.

    Castrol 0w40 has disappeared, suitable replacement?

    I just ordered a 3 pack of M1 0w40 at about $5.20 a quart. Great deal. Since it’s a port injected motor, it seems like it best 40w value.

    High quality 5W40 for BMW

    Running 0w-20 STP SYN in bmw 340i (B58) do I need to change immediately?

    Oh no, I forgot this was a BMW thread. Sorry I was asking in regards to a VW 2.5 port injected motor. Apologies.
