Here's my dilemma: I only have in my stash 24 qts of the Green 04 vintage. My sump is 4.5 qts in the Grand Am, so I calculated that I'm 3 qts shy of an even 6 OCI's worth. I went to one AZ today and all they had was 05 (gold) and so I was wondering, IF (and I pray it's a BIG IF) I can't find anymore of the Green, do y'all think it would be ok to use some of the Gold for my last OCI? It would be 3 qts Gold and 1.5 qts Green... Any thoughts? Or should I use 3 qts of a different oil BTW...all the start up noise I used to have with the M1 in there....gone. I don't know what it was...piston slap (not really even sure what that is ) or valve train noise, but it's all but gone with the GC Just thought the Elven Brotherhood would be happy to hear that.
