    Castrol Magnatec initial impressions.

    That one bothers me almost as much as the official oil of Alabama, "Mobile" 1. :)

    Nothing but good things to say about the Wix/NAPA filters. We have driven Subarus forever and I've been using the (5)7055 filter on all our engines since around 2014 when we got our first non-EJ engine. Never have had the first problem, plus I have NAPA and Oreilly within 2-3 miles. Subaru...

    Which auto brand dealerships utilize the salesmen/women with

    It seems like in my area that I find this most often at the Kia dealers. (Haven't shopped a Kia in a few years.) At the time the cars needed all they could get to sell and the customer base was the most likely to be groomed for such, so Wormwood Kia, sounds about right.

    "Meets and Exceeds". Let's look at QS for a minute.

    Remember everyone, the oil is formulated by engineers; the language on the bottle is written by lawyers. In my opinion, what's in the bottle is more important than what's on the bottle. This isn't 😁

    You really need to consider trying vanilla air. When I first used vanilla air my car smoothed right out. Seemed to have more horsepower and my gas mileage went up 3 mpg. Also, make sure you don't buy your vanilla air at Walmart, because it is not the same as other vanilla air sold at other...

    Yeah, for some reason Subaru decreased the oil capacity on the 2.5 NA from 5.1 to 4.4 beginning in 2020.

    Why Such Baby Filter On a Big Truck Motorcraft FL500S

    The FL-500S actually at one time was cross-referenced to the AC Delco PF63 for the 5.3 & 6.2 GM engines. Not sure this is the case anymore as GM has changed its bypass spec, but as far as canister size, they are almost identical.

    Toyota 5.7L burning oil

    Had a similar experience with a 2013 Subaru Legacy. Car had the 2.5 FB engine that the internet has blown up as a major oil burner. I never experienced major consumption, but it typically used between 3/4 and 1 quart in a 5K oci. I switched brands between Mobil 1 AFE, PP, and QSUD all in 0W20...

    Yeah I know it. If it makes you feel any better I used Quaker State Synthetic in my wife's Legacy during the last oil change. My truck is due next and I have 8 quarts of NAPA sitting on the shelf for it. Valvouser....nah I'll just keep the name and not worry about it. In all seriousness I do...

    rear main/oil pan leak got worse, move to 10w30? or switch to conventional?

    I have an old 2003 Buick with the 3.8. Had leaks from valve covers and some from the RMS. Tried the Blue Devil snake oil and it did help but did not eliminate the leaks. However did the last oil change with Quaker State High Mileage, and I am down to almost no leaks at all. I was very...

    Yeah, Subaru went from a 17mm to a 14 mm drain bolt head a few years back. Seems to have softened the metal as well. When they get installed at the factory they paint the drain bolt. Seems to even have paint in the threads on the pan. To the credit of the dealer who did the last change, they...
