My favorite ones are where they live where it stays 100F+ year round,their car specs a 10W,and they ask if they should use a 0W to prevent that mystical startup wear!

I always get a chuckle when the answer is, "check the oil cap," as if the oil cap is an oil authority of sorts. I'd rather know what oil optimizes engine lifetime wear. And that's sometimes a different answer than manual, oil cap, or manufacturer.

Or the simple question of: "What oil should I use"? Without any vehicle information, history, engine size, driving style, climate etc. Just, "what oil should I use"?

What if the oil cap had been exchanged from another vehicle, and it was not correct? What if you read it up-side down.....a 5w-30 would be a 03-w5? So complicated, the angst, the angst laugh

On my mom's car I've reused the oil drain plug crush washer about 20 times without any leaks.
