    Hard Shift from 4th to 5th gear or a bit delayed despite ATF flush and solenoids replacements

    Do not do flush! Do replacement of fluid. Release fluid and add the amount that got out. Did you change the filter? Also, what transmission Genesis uses? Is it ZF, Aisin etc? And like others said, no additives!

    5w50 in place of 10w60 for BMW M3

    5w50 in place of 10w60 for BMW M3

    Something went wrong here with design. Rod bearing in S65 have tight tolerances and XW50 should be maximum. However, BMW from get go went with 10W60. There are numerous topics on this subject and a lot of people run 5W50 Redline successfully in this engine. But, from everything so far, it seems...

    VW 508.00 Does it really matter?

    I am not saying you should go non approved. We are still talking approved VW oil, basically thicker VW504.00/507.00. On Audizine I know where it is gonna go: Rotella, Delvac etc.

    2021 Toyota Sienna Redesign

    Sarajevo neighborhoods from Ottoman period are built on 14-16% grade if not more in some instances. People climb with FWD all the time, snow tires mandatory in the country. Absolute champion in climbing? Golf II diesel. I climbed every single pass here in winter with VW CC, Blizzak LM60. Is it...

    VW 508.00 Does it really matter?

    No reason to deviate from VW504.00/507.00. But, some of VW 511.00 look really good. If you decide to track, absolutely W40 grade.

    2021 Toyota Sienna Redesign

    Nope, cannot match Sienna, Odyssey etc. I was renting a lot of them when worked at university in athletics. Traveling with athletes, all the equipment? Minivan easily the best choice compared to anything unless we are talking Chevrolet Express, E350 etc.

    VW 508.00 Does it really matter?

    VW511.00 is specifically developed for RS and S models, Porsche with GPF etc. It is used in Europe for specifically those models. Now, is VW504.00/507.00 do a good job? Absolutely. But, if your S is seeing highs speeds, track, etc. I would go 511.

    Can you imagine buying a 2007 BMW 335i with a 6 speed manual trans with only 3,400 original miles?

    I would buy it. Remedial work: OFHG, coolant hoses, coolant reservoir, maybe radiator, all fluids. Everything else is as needed. One thing on such vehicle with extremely low mileage is that piezo injectors will have to be upgraded to update 12.

    BMW Returning to Castrol

    I highly doubt start-up wear is an issue. If there is an attempt to reduce wear by using thinner oils it is to mitigate issues caused in engines that do not reach operating oil temperature. That, I can see, but what about those that see? If you google N55 rod bearings, there are a slew of cases...
