Bad experience with Valvoline Maxlife
Changed the oil the other day thinking maxlife would help my leaking valve stem seal (which luckily hasn't leaking in a couple weeks). As soon as I started the car I noticed the cars oil pressure was lower than normal. This bothered me. So the next day ( last sunday) I went and bought some mobil 1 and changed the oil again. All is normal. Oil pressure is back up to the mark past the 40. When I took the maxlife out, the day after I put it in, it was much darker too. Looked like 2 month old oil. Did not like that at all. I am very pleased with mobil 1 and plan on using this oil for now on. Anyone have any good experiences with Maxlife motor oil? I have Maxlife Dexron III in the trans that works good. The motor oil just didn't agree with the beastly 3800.
