Maybe. im not switching lol. It seems to work awesome and im happy. That's all that matters. It will always be a debate between which oil is the best lol.

10w30 will not lubricate the valvetrain as well as 5w20. 10w30 will usually cause the valvetrain to tick because of poor lubrication and will eventually need new lifters (valve lash adjusters).

Re: Oil

Just go with whatever weight the factory recommends, for your engine. Those engineers are a lot smarter than you or I.

Very true. I use 5w-20. That's what ford recommends for V8.

Re: Oil

I talked to a mechanic the other day and he suggested, 5-40 or 0-40 here in Houston. Says its what all the Porsches ect are running now. Synthetic of course.

Your car ain't a porche. It's a mustang. The engine was designed differently than a porche. Therefore takes a different weight. Thats like saying the f350 uses 10w40 rotella diesel oil. I should too!

Re: Oil

Thats why he suggested 5-40. Suggesting the 5-20 may not hold up to the Houston Heat and driving conditions. I am not going to argue with you on any of this. I am simply saying that someone suggested using a higher range of viscosity oil.

Down in houston that might be fine for summer use. I live up in the dfw area so I know the heat your talking about. Plus the v6s are not as sensitive to oil viscosity changes like the v8s are. Sorry. Didn't mean to come off rude

Re: Oil

No worries. Ohh And I am using Mobil1 right now. Gonna Seafoam it this weekend maybe. Not the oil yet as I just replaced it and that stuff is expensive. Maybe in a few K.

Re: Oil

Hrmm, I heard Seafoaming the oil and running it around for a bit then changing it would help un gunk the engine. I didnt mean seafoaming and leaving it in. But I can see what you are getting at about being rough on it.

What year is your car? From what I know I'm pretty sure the v6 mustangs don't have a gunking problem. Ppl do it all the time and have no problems. It's just not recommended.

3.8l? Those engines are very clean engines. The engines don't have a sludging problem. I personally wouldnt do it
