I run 5W-30 Winter and 10W-30 In the summer. Its the way things work.
Update on the engine:
I changed the oil IMMEDIATELY after getting home from some high speed highway cruising...let me just tell you something. That oil. Was. Hot.
Let it just be known, NOT to do that.
On the upside, I got it all out without any serious casualties and then refilled with the Mobil 1 and Slick 50. WOW, that slick 50 looks like goopy vasaline!
I never woulda guessed.
But the news is that right after I started it up it started to tick, but it went away almost IMMEDIATELY, it was good. It is actually running QUIETER allover than it did before. Its great. AND, im not sure if its kind of a placebo effect of the slick 50 or something, but it seemed to have a little more get up and go! It was good. And if anyone is wondering if I let it work in, I ran over to the adjacent town for a bit and kept it running, so it got worked in for about 30 mins and then a bit more. So at least I know its REALLY worked in there. So anyways thats what is goin on now. I am waiting for it to be really cold again to take a new video of that lifter. We'll SEE!
Thanks for the help with this guys, it really is appreciated.
