.....generally anything that also carries an OEM classification. If the auto manufacturer will stake their warranty claims on it I will. I often use Rotella but as a rule anything branded by Chevron seems to be higher grade. Pennzoil is some of the worst crap you can use! Valvoline use to be a great oil but I have read more and more about it water sludging like Pennzoil these days.

For the record Kevin I run 5w40 diesel truck and suv Mobil 1. My engine has been very happy so far. But this is probably the longest change interval I've done. I have to look to be sure but I think I'm at 9000 miles now. Who knows if the two are related?

probably be he weekend before I can look closer at my leak.

edited first post ande added pictures there.

I might have to go and hit the carwash again now that the splash guard has been removed.

But post up your opinions. I want to call CDan beforethe end of the week to get parts in route.

Mine looks similar but so far not enough to leave spots on the ground...Hopefully it won't get too bad until the HG goes (someday) and then I'll have to figure out what to do....

Mine is pretty bad. These pics today were taken post carwash and a complete can of engine degreeser. My tie rod, steering dampner, axle housing, and most everything behind are covered in oil/dirt sludge. I used a putty knife to clean off my splash guard. I leave a pretty good spot anywhere I park now.

I might just order everything up there and just do all of it. I'm going to guess all the seals are cheap compaired to the time involved to tear it apart.

Crank pos sensor o ring is my guess, but I don't think you can buy just the o ring.

How about we 80 owners get together to do one and then do a bunch! When Matt and I got together to flush PS fluid the first one took a bit as we figured it out, but the second was like 5 minutes.
I have had a long term slow leak from the front somewhere and I am sure a new oil pump seal and new crank seal would be a good idea.
4/11? 4/17?
