Icon7 Recommended Oil for my 56,xxx mile H22a

I DID MY RESEARCH.. So Do Not flame me.

I just can't decide what oil to get.

Im about a week im going back home (Oklahoma) from GA. So ima do another oil change. I used Mobile1 5-30 but that damn thing burns too fast..

So what's the best/recommended oil for my 56,xxx h22a? I wanted to get Castrol gtx high mileage, but that's only for engines 75,xxx or higher.. Should I just get the Castrol fully syn?

Again, I did my research, just don't know which is better..
thanks fellow ludes!

Try 10w 40 castrol gtx that what i put in my 245xxx mile h23. And i drive 300 miles every weekend. It holds up really when your get on it too. You might lose some mpg but its worth it.

Re: Recommended Oil for my 56,xxx mile H22a

10w30 valvoline. h23's with high mileage 5w30 and a quart of lucas oil stabalizer. But h22's 10w30 :) you probably could get away with synthetic because your engine mileage is fairly low. go for it.

Re: Recommended Oil for my 56,xxx mile H22a

You can use 10w30 synthetic or conventional. Id say synthetic since its what I personally use. You dont really need a high mileage oil. as long as you change your oil regularly then you are fine. Go with whatever company you like. I use Valvoline but i work for Mobil 1 Both oils are fine products but from what I have been hearing, Mobil is one of the last "true" synthetics left on the market. Still trying to figure out exactly what this means lol

Re: Recommended Oil for my 56,xxx mile H22a

I read mobile 1 tears up ur engine if you use it on a regular basis.. ill post the link if you guys don't agree.. im not using royal purple, I've heard numerous times that that stuff is not very good and or motor friendly as well.. amsoil is the best, which I've read. But im not willing to pay shipping for it. Im still leaning towards castrol tho..

Can some one tell me the difference between 5w-30, 10w-30, 0w-30etc etc..
I know its thickness, but that's all I know..

royal purple is without a doubt the worst oil i have ever used. it breaks down super quick. plus i burned over a quart in a week, compared to half a quart between changes with mobile1 10w30

Re: Recommended Oil for my 56,xxx mile H22a

Viscosity or thickness

5W30 oil runs better under colder temperatures than 10W30. Most newer cars recommend 5W30, but allow 10W30 if the car will not be operated in weather that is below freezing. Many older cars were designed to use 10W30, using specific bearing and design tolerances. Below is what I found at the source link. I have never heard of switching to 5W30 simply because of the age of the car.

5W30 versus 10W30
Many mechanics say 10W30 is the closest thing to a one size fits all oil. Many older vehicles need 10W30, and most newer vehicles are okay with it in warmer climates. Since many garages don’t want to have multiple tanks of bulk oil they choose to carry only 10W30. It would not be a disaster if you used 10W30, but given a choice, go with the manufacturer’s recommendation and use the 5W30. Is there a disadvantage to using an oil that flows better when cold, i.e. 5W30 versus 10W30?

Why do many oil change places, even dealerships, use 10W30 instead of 5W30, even when 5W30 is preferred?
Sometimes, but usually not. The crux of the issue is this: the bigger the difference between the cold oil viscosity and the hot oil viscosity, the more the volume of viscosity modifiers and the less the volume of base stock. If you are good about following the manufacturer’s recommended oil change interval then stick with the 5W30 if that is the preferred oil for your vehicle, even if 10W30 is acceptable in warmer climates. Older cars may specify 10W30 only. This is because they need a little more viscosity when cold to keep a protective film on the cylinder walls. There have been instances where the larger amount of viscosity modifiers that are present in 5W30 have broken down due to excessive heat and have left carbon deposits on the valves, but this is extremely rare. The proper fix would be to reduce the excessive heat, but the workaround was to use an oil with less viscosity modifiers.




I hope this helps.
Virtually all new passenger vehicles sold in the U.S. use either 5W30 or 10W30 oil. The difference between the two is that the 5W30 flows better when cold, so if you live in a cold climate or operate your vehicle in a cold climate during the winter months, you should use 5W30 if it is the preferred oil for your vehicle. If you live in a sub-tropical climate and don’t operate your vehicle in cold climates, then 10W30 is acceptable as long as the manufacturer specifies that it is permissible to use it.

Great! thank you, that clears alot of things up... One more question, Is it healthy to switch between 5w-30 and 10w-30 when that time of the years comes? it gets real hot in the summer, and gets real cold in the winter where im from...? i have 5w30 in my car right now, and in GA its extremely hot here. when i first start my car, it takes awhile for it to start. would that be be because of the thinner oil in it according to ur post. "not being in a colder climate"?

Re: Recommended Oil for my 56,xxx mile H22a

It is acceptable and in my opinion a good idea to change weights with seasons if you live in extreme climates. Like here in MT we can be -20 in the winter and crack the 100 mark in the heat of summer. I noticed a change in oil consumption doing so.

Given your 2 selections use the full sun. High mileage is un necessary.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. When the majority of the worlds most elite auto manufacturers spec something other Mobil1 ill change.

Ok.. thanks for clarifying the switching weights.

But excuse my curiosity, who and what are your "World elite manufactures"? ur saying "they" recommend mobile 1? why mobile1? i used it, yea it ran great, but burns too fast.. in my experience.

No need to excuse curiosity. That's how you learn things. I wish I could shed more light on the topic but I really can't. I always try and trust the opinions and findings of people who get paid to figure this stuff out. A few examples of what ihave specifically seen is Corvettes, Porsches, Mercedes, Cadillacs, etc. They spec and recommend Mobil1 for a reason and in some cases for warranty purpose. Now the fact that it burns a little fast could be entirely irrelevant to is protection and lubrication properties. Like I said, I don't know specifically but there are people who make quite a healthy salary to figure these thongs out. I too have heard good things about amsoil.

thanks man for explaining things to me.. ive had my lude for about 4 months now, so still kinda new to things.. and still relatively young.. (20) lol. so i wanna learn everything i can. while juggling college and my car :)

ANYWAYS! lol.. Ok, so like you said, all those cars use mobile 1.. But all those cars are High end cars.. i can see why they use mobile 1. but for our cars/motors? i woudnt think mobile 1 would be as efficient in our cars as the high end cars..

Re: Recommended Oil for my 56,xxx mile H22a

Honestly I'd never open a bottle of anything Royal Purple. I have my friends that jump on the bandwagon, but I don't let them pour that into their car without them knowing my disapproval. And if you're going to use RP, might as well use Castrol.


I have a Fox Mustang (1991 Wild Strawberry Red 5.0 HO) and got some Castrol with some Lucas. I'm not sure which is the culprit, but together those two put me into a heap of a mess. I'll never trust either of the two again.

I've always only trusted Valvoline and Mobil1
-

That's just my opinion

I have a friend that uses Rotella T 15w40 and says his Honda's love him for it. I've been meaning to try it.

Amsoil all the way.

I went from the crappy Mobile 1 5w30 to Amsoil 10w30 and my engine seems to run alot better.

Man oh man.. So many choices! Lol

Does anyone know of a shop in GA that sells Amsoil? Or do I HAVE to order it?

Re: Recommended Oil for my 56,xxx mile H22a

I have heard a lot of good things about Amsoil. Yep, Napa oil is Valvoline. Had a friend with a shop beside a Napa store tell me that.

I haven't heard much bad about Royal Purple, but the guys using it in serious racing probably change it after every 1/4 mile drag so who knows. I don't watch Nascar, that would be a test for it. Does anyone know if RP is used there? If it isn't because it will break down too quickly that is an indication to me that I don't want to mess with it.
