So should i switch over to that Mobile 0w30??
Also what oil filter do u recommend...?
I know alot of people HATE FRAM!!
But i have always used the Fram ToughGuard filters, and changed them as close to 3K as i could, never had any issue..
Yeah i made the badges myself...i do custom vinyl graphics, shirts, hats, and custom etched glass and other stuff..its my small home based business, do it in my spare time, still have a full time job as a service tech mechanic.
I bought the ranger in 05 with 118k and two years later at 128k i had a spark plug detonate..damaged the cylinder/valve/piston...i was just out of college and still making payment on the truck..had a remanned block put in.
And i think i am running 5w30 in both...i know i switch from 5w to 10w...
I change the oil in my ranger every 3,000 miles. As for the wifes grandam..i try but its hard to keep an eye on it with her schedule. This last oil change was at 3500..butnher "change oil" light didnt even come on..
She drives her car 8 miles to work and back every day..then 70 miles to work...
The wife has had the pontiac since before i met her, over 4 yrs. Hasnt had any real issues, but i did just have the thermostat and sensor replaced.
Otherwise she runs great..just put in a new battery.
The new autostart is having issues tho. Sometimes when we start it..it will start and run for...
Ok im looking for some advice on oils to run in my truck and wifes car.
Ive been running regular Valvoline 10w30 in both vehicles for a while and the miles are getting up there. Thinking about switching to full synthetic..
First vehicle is a 1999 Ford Ranger 3.0 auto, ext cab 4x4.
