All that "high mileage" and crap with "omg uber wtf" stuff in it is snake oil. Run a good 10w-30 for a 5.0 and call it good. Also your stock oil gauge is just an on/off switch which trips at 6 psi so it tells you precisely nothing other than you have more than 6 psi. A good aftermarket gauge will tell you what is really going on.

More often than not a good 10w30 is all that she needs.


I did have a few F150 with 302's in them that we swapped to 20w50 which helped with the noise (the usual noise) some and they lasted over 300k. These were work trucks and were abused some.

Yeah I've done the thicker oil trick on a few vehicles with real high miles that "fixed them" for another year or two. Had one that probably had bad valve stems and I dunno where the other one was burning oil but no more blue smoke or using oil for awhile after I went to 15w-40.

Good trick if you are trying to sell and older vehicle too. >
