    Okay royal purple, full syn and mobile 1. I used to use mobile 1 all the time. What is the consensus on Lucus? I have heard both good and bad same with mirlin mystery oil.

    Now days, you can't go wrong with any of them. Just pick a brand and stick with it. If you don't wnat to spend the money on full syn, then you can get a blend. I run a blend in my Kia's.

    Yup. Conventional oil I change about 5000 miles. Blends I go about 8-10k and full synthetic I go 12k-15k. However, you really need to change your filter at least every 5K then top off the 1/2qt that you lost.

    I'm a fan of royal purple myself. I use it in my motorcycle. The cycle blend. It dropped my oil temp. down about 35 to 45 degrees. That I like!

    So then drain the oil into a clean container, the switch filter and then refill / top off.

    I think that would get to messy for me. Unless the draining is minimal.

    If it's vertical no problem. Draining the oil out dose nothing with the filter! When I Chang my truck oil ill punch a hole on the bottom of the filter and drain the oil out before I remove it

    I thought it would drain all the oil at first. Then i got to thinking about it. The oil filter is above the oil pan.

    Just stay away from the Fram oil filters. Stick with AC Delco, Motorcraft, Wix, Royal Purple, etc. Plenty to choose from.

    Too late. I ended up getting 5 quarts of Castro Edge. (Formerly syntec ) 5w 20 and a frame filter for synthetic oil. I also got a pre formed seal for the oil pan.

    The oil and filter were a combo deal sale.
    I also have more good news. Read my other post on it.

    If it's not an orange case on the filter, you should be fine. I have cut open the orange fram filters and found holes in the pleats. But, I still run them because I"m too broke to get anything better... Sucks not making any money...

    Not even close. With a new store manager who is more of a dictator than a manager, it's making it very hard to stay there. As for the big money, yeah, I"m not making that... Not even close.
