My Car millage is 195000.You never posted what the mileage of the car is, but is a minor amount of condensation for a relatively short commute each way. If it were a thick & heavy build-up under the oil cap, i would start to be concerned, but that isn't bad at all.
Is there a reason for wanting to use a different brand of oil, or you simply want to try another brand?I understand but i wanted to try a new, shouldn't be a problem with the engine oil high millage Valvoline 5-40 synthetic, right?
Thx for The reply i will take in consideration, i already Bought the valvoline engine oil for it protects high millage, sludge, leaks, deposits, frictionIs there a reason for wanting to use a different brand of oil, or you simply want to try another brand?
My Dad has used Castrol oils exclusively for the past 20-odd years, and has never had an issue with any of their oils (conventional or synthetic) and some of his trucks were worked HARD. He said Castro Edge has been the best synthetic oil that he's used in high mileage gas engines. If you're familiar with GM's 4.3L engine from their compact & full-size trucks, you know they're known for noisy valve-train clatter as their mileage increases. The first oil change he did on a 340K km 4.3L with Castrol Edge, instantly reduced the valve-train noise to near zero. That same engine had 496K kms on it when he sent it to scrap 3 years later - and only because the clutch broke, and the body was to rusty to bother replacing the clutch again. He also routinely took that engine to redline, and it never failed it. He uses Castrol's conventional oil in his Cummins, as he believes doing frequent oil changes on a diesel is better overall, compared to using synthetic for twice the mileage. He has almost 500K kms on that truck as well.
Just some information for you to consider while deciding which product to use.
you are falling for the marketing hype, I'd use it this once, and see what it does, then switch mack to the castrol.Thx for The reply i will take in consideration, i already Bought the valvoline engine oil for it protects high millage, sludge, leaks, deposits, friction
Otherwise i had never problem with the castrol magnatec 5w-40.
