Re: Motor Oil

If your getting a conventional or synthetic blend Castrol is the way to go! Even the Sytec Castrol is a good choice. For Performance wise its best to go oil like Mobil 1, Royal Purple or even the Castrol Edge. Im currently on Castrol High Milage since my car has 185k+ Miles on it but am considering changing it to a full synthetic instead of a synthetic blend.

lmao. I don't think the amount of time it "gets the the head" would be enough to matter. The head always has oil and is lubricated.
Not to be a jerk, just saying.

Sorry sir but you are misinformed. When you shut down your engine, all the oil within the motor drains down to the pan. Over night (if car is parked and obviously not being run) the oil thickens as it cools. Now when you get in your car the next morning and start it up, there is a period of time where every moving part in the head is moving without any lubrication. 90% of engine wear is at start up. Why you ask? Well if all the oil drained to the pan at the bottom of the motor, it has to be pumped back up to the top to lubricate the entire engine. Now the oil does not shoot up there instantly since it has thickened due to cooling. Now Mobil 1 which I work for btw, has developed 0 weight oils which thicken less overnight so that they can reach proper temperatures for lubrication faster thus resulting in less wear at start up due to the shortened time it takes for the oil to reach proper lubrication temperatures. If you still doubt me, read up on it for yourself. I always direct ppl to this website. - Bob is the Oil Guy Great information to be absorbed.
