    New to me truck. Need oil reccomendation

    Yeah, the Cologne V6 4.0L was always 5W-30. Anything you run in it by a major oil company will be fine. Personally I'd use a syn like Pennzoil Plat or Mobil 1 on rebate. A 0W-30 would also work fine, but as a winter oil...

    Manual oil recommendations 2019 Frontier V6

    I would just use a quality synthetic 5W-30 oil for most of the year. If you really want something thicker, I'd go 0W/5W-40 full syn in summer months...

    Home rent deposit recovery questions

    Sounds like you would have been better off renting from a reputable apartment building. There have been a couple times where if I'm sure I'm gonna be stiffed on the security deposit I just tell them to keep it for last months rent and I'll be out in 30. If they have any problems with this...

    Switching to Quaker State Ultimate Durability from M1

    OP: there is nothing wrong with your choice, QSUD is an excellent oil and I like the Quaker State lineup in general if nothing for the nostalgia of it all. But it seems like a bit of a false choice, or false decision, when you can also bundle Mobil 1 and get a $12 rebate for each jug. There's...

    5W20 Short Trip Myth ?

    My father short trips, or at least doesn't drive much. I put 5W-20 M1 HM, but not because of short tripping, I just clearanced it out of Target. In any case, I take his car out once a month and drive it on the freeway for about 30 mins...
