quote:Too low for my comfort still . Could be a worn oil pump from running thick oils in a cold climate all it's life . Might be bearings or both but too much to cover on a forum as it could yet be " one " more problem that's oil pump related . I'd nix the 0w-30 idea based on my opinion of what is wrong with the motor .
