quote:I love answers like this, straight to the point. In all seriousness, thanks. Patman, are the bubbles really, really small? I just checked it and there where "microscopic" bubbles in the oil along the dipstick. The were so small thought they might have been something else. Hope not.

Originally posted by buster: Thanks Patman. Yes I am sending it off but I screwed it up again!! I am an idiot! I was distracted and by the time I went back under the car, the oil was drained into the pan. So I took the sample from the pan and filled the bottle with it. I am so angry bc this is the second time now that I've messed up a potential sample. I don't know what my problem is. Anyway, the oil had only 5k miles on it. 60% was highway and the other 40% was really hard driving. I have wanted to send off more samples over the last few months but money has been tight and I need to be careful. I am running M1 now and will try and go to 10k (I've said this before) with this one. I also had a 3oz dose of Rx with the sample I just sent off.
quote:I probably should have but I sent it anyway. It might look better then when I had tide in the last sample. I can't believe I screwed it up again. When I change the oil, I'm usually in a rush and that is when I mess things up. Lets see what happens. My next M1 analysis should be good.

quote:Same here...you know those all-in-one drain pan / 10 qt holding tub things you can get (made by Blitz or whatever)? Well, don't forget to open the little air relief plug, or the used oil won't go down into the tub! At least not quickly enough to avoid getting those volcano/"old faithful" bloops of oil shooting up all over everything as the air comes out to make room for the oil. I felt stupid going back into the house after that one...
For some reason I become the biggest air head when I change the oil.
