So you're gonna put it in there and if nothing bad happens then you will assume it's a good oil ?

If you are not capable of explaining your strategy or technique then I don't want you to hurt yourself.

Sorry for making you look stupid.

How about a semi-synthetic? Motorcraft semi-synthetic, which is spec'd and used by Ford is available at Wal-Mart for very cheap. I pay 2.xx something a quart. They also carry the Motorcraft filter at Wal-Mart. Makes for an inexpensive oil change, not to metion it's OEM.



I've always used the Motorcraft Semi-Synthetic oil and Motorcraft oil filters for all of my Ford vehicles. If you took it to the dealer.. they'd be using the same stuff. Why not use stuff that Ford designed for the vehicles they build??

If I run synthetic I run amsoil. One of the main reasons is the success i've had with it on 2 strokes, the engines are so clean and nice when ran with this over the life of the motor compared with standard oil.

now this by no means does this state or prove the 4 stroke amsoil is good or not, i guess i figured if the burned oil is good the lubrication only kind must be pretty good too..lol

I use regular oil(I like valvoline,but whatever your pref is) and Lucas engine treatment (or "engine snot" as some call it) I have 149,800 miles on my 97pi. I went 5,000 miles and didn't burn any at all. Oil came out looking new when I changed it.
