My roommate just did his oil change with the new Castrol GTX Startup 10w30 on his Accord. He said he noticed the engine was much quiter (immediately) and the oil didn’t slosh around as much (looking at the cams – I didn’t even know you could do that) compared to other oils. He usually used Valvoline.
Castrol GTX is my oil of choice. I want to know if any of you guys have used the Startup formula in your tegs.
:wtf: are you talking about dood. All Honda motor oils are made by Mobil/Exxon. Trust me, this is something I have to know working there. I also have a quart of Honda 10w-30 right next to me to verify that.
Canada may be different, but I know MANY dealerships dont even use the Honda oil when they do oil changes. If you have anything other than a Hybrid or S2K, they use bulk oil from a different company. The only time they put Honda oil in the cars is only if the customer asked to make sure that Honda oil is getting put into it, but other than that, you get cheap bulk oil.
I bought a one quart bottle of castrol gtx 5w30 and 4 quarts regular 5w30 for my next oil change.Did your friend use a whole 4 quarts for the oil change or just one quart mixed with regular castrol gtx?
ive used lucas in my car… it didnt help oil consumption… car was quieter when i started it… just the first block or so when the motor would feel like it was chunkin up … my guess is the lucas would gob up in the oil pan and when the pump hit it to suck it it would drop power and it would feel like that
lucas is like caramel for those who havent tried it
