I want to do this too.
Only natural for a former THS Boss.
THS? What's that eh? lol
Long term memory status: Stoner
I **should** know that feel, but I don't. Thank god.
lol your long-term memory wasn't affected from "stoning"?
Yeah, apparently he didn't take any hits to the head or face.
Lol you used that wrong, leading to this:
So, James:1 Gold:0?
IDK, but definitely Gold -01
James + 69
I got my analysis back on my 6k oil. I'll post it up like James did when I have time. Everything was good, they said test it again in 3,500 mikes.
Anyone switch over from conventional to PP or PU? How's the changeover, any issue?
Don't even know what that is lol
I have, but not on this car. I switched my Mazda6S (2004) from conventional 5W20 to PP of the same weights. Seat of the pants says it runs smoother, and it doesn't burn any oil. UOA looks good too, I am trying to determine my OCI on it right now and will be trying 7K next.

It is also ridiculously cheap from time to time at wal mart. I bought 12 5 quart jugs at like $18 each. WTF.
Ah. Mobil 1 here
Mobil 1 bosses unite
$25 for 5 quarts at Walmart lol
good job paying a premium for a not true poseur synthetic.
^^^ sounds like someone's jelly
Mobil 1 is good oil, I just don't like paying the premium, as it absolutely never goes on sale. PU or PP is the same prices but they have sales that allow this oil to be in reach. BITOG and other forums love the cleaning power in PU. I just hope switching from regular ole dino ( I mean any Dino) to super duper cleaning PU doesn't expose leaks lol
i only use Mobil 1 to be honest for all of my cars, it isnt that expensive to buy from costco when it is on sale, like 28 bucks from my local costco for a box of 6 qt.
Yeah, the sludge in your crank case.
I forgot to mention, I did the switchover in the Mazda at 65K miles.
hmm I guess I should switch over to synthetic tho I use convention 10-40 and I usually have to add another qt when it hits 2k... damn 1zz
Too heavy of a weight will flow worse (even though it has higher pressure; pressure = resistance to flow) and you won't get enough to your bearings.
A QT every 700-1,000 miles is the accepted oil loss levels for BMW's.
is 10w30 safe to use on these corollas? People have been telling me to just use 10w30 because of the crazy consumption levels my auto corolla has...
The last time i took it to toyotafest, i had done an oil change and 600 miles later i was down to the LOW dot....I had put 4 quarts before i left stockton and i had to add 2 quarts after those 600 miles to make it back home.
In my sister's 8th gen, which more or less burns oil at the same rate as yours, she used 10W-30 and it seemed to slow some of the consumption, and ran pretty well. Only downside was fuel economy and winter startup, she lost 2-3 mpg and it was tough to start below freezing.
I used 10w-30 in my Corolla, I thought that's what it called for?
