quote:Hey Grunt, aviator (turned lawyer) again: Don't buy into that "using X will void your wty" crap. Under the Moss-Magnuson act, which governs new car warranties, the mfr must prove that the use of a non-approved fluid or part caused the claimed defect before they can deny the claim. Now, you may be asking for a fight, but up-front, in advance "voidings" of warranties are just that -- VOID!!!

I would also be real careful about using what Amsoil recommends without checking with the manufacture. I know when I had a Dodge 1ton with the 6speed manual transmission that Amsoil recommended using their 5-30 synthetic engine oil in the transmission and the manufacture said your warranty would be void if you did. I think Amsoil makes some good products but I think they get carried away with what they think some of it is capable of doing. Since their sales force is a multi-level marketing set-up they get a lot of cheerleaders pushing the product. I would use their synthetic motor oil in my engine. JMHO
