Just curious.

HUM, the 3.6 engine has ongoing dry starts with no ADV as of current.
Well, I think that this OD will just join Chrysler's think ology, so we can self destruct together............I wonder if this is really a good idea, I will just have to think about it. Life is so confusing...........

If we all put our heads together, then there has to be a solution to dry starts.
How about a pitcher of ICE TEA? This will have a very low viscosity and should flow to our crucial body parts in a expedient way.
O.k., my vote is for a pitcher of ice tea, with just a smidgen of lemon. Just maybe I should write a letter to Chrysler and offer this as the ultimate solution!!!!!!!
Unfortunately there is a negative to every solution. Just think, there will be no more oil wars. I bet that Old Dogger will be so unhappy with this solution, that he may even leave the Forum. Then who will make us all laugh?

For some reason, I thought that you were the member that debated that the oil filter canister drains back once that the engine is shut off and that it does not have a anti drain back valve in cooperated into the system.
I debated this with somebody in a past thread and I was wrong to think that any engine would be manufactured as of current without this valve.

So my question is how when the filter drains back and is empty of oil creating a void, which in turn would create a oil flow lag time, not cause somewhat of a dry start???
I understand that there is a oil film still remaining on the internal engine parts and the suction screen from the pump is still below the oil level, but there is also air in the system in the canister.

Thank you for correcting me!
I need to stay on the targeted Brew subject. What's wrong with me.

I am that member but your definition of dry starts differs from mine. To me a dry start is when one or more lifters bleed down and the engine makes noise for a few seconds on start up until oil pressure starts to build. Owners of Jeeps with the 3.8L sometimes experienced this on start up, especially depending on the oil and filter used. I have no noise issues on start up with my 3.6.

I agree, the term dry start can very somewhat from person too person. I also currently do not have any lifter noise at start up, but I still am not comfortable with a empty oil filter canister. Only time and mileage will tell if this is, or is not going to be a issue.
The only oil filter that will not empty, or possible leak back" defective valve", with or without a valve is the one mounted vertically, that fills from the top. My Escalade with the 6.2 is set up that way. I am not sure why all manufactures don't use this concept.

Back to the current thread setter, of Beer. A cold Coors light sure would taste good today, but I will settle for a pitcher of ice tea.

Wait, what? Do people in the South actually drink Southern Comfort?

In the spirit of the thread, I'm currently drinking Mill St Organic. It's Canadian. It's very good.

Once again, the heat is on the Heat! The sharp Spurs are going to dig in and put the hurt on James and his team. We may even see some tempers flare at times, it should be interesting. And what a better way to add to the over all enjoyment of the game, but of coarse a six pack of cold Budweiser Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeer and we can't forget the Popcorn.
Since nobody is offering free Pop corn any more, well I guess I will have to go buy my own, really sad..........................

Basketball can go lick a toilet. Most boring sport ever. Also talk about Dbaggy Pro Sport players.

OD, a lot of your treads and posts are right on target, but not this one. You are so far out in left field, that you can't even be seen. LeBron and the Heat are the best of the best. The Spurs are old and worn out and just don't stand a chance. LeBron and his Team are going to send the Spurs packing and you can take that one to the bank!

Now getting back on target with this thread, Budweiser is ROT GUT, a real mans Beer is Coors Light.

If you are looking for performace of lubrication,look no further than synthetics. They far out perform organic lubricants.They have no hydo-carbons for emmission standards. They flow at a higher temperature than conventional lube's and with less resistance at lower temps.. Some synthetics can damage sycro's in manual gear-box's,so contact the manufacture first. Royal Purple I have found works well from the crankcase,gear-box,transfer-case all the way to the axle housings.There is a company out of CA., that manufactures one of the finest synthetic greases' I have found, and it's called Red Line. This grease is good to 800 degrees F.. Great for pilot bearings and U-Joints,this grease is called CV-2.My choice for filters would hands down would be WIX.

And Royal Purple is one of the best Synthetic oils and gear lubes on the market.

This thread is both great and hilarious!
It reminds me of far left Liberals and far right Conservatives. Each thinks that the others oil is no good and just doesn't work, or at least is inferior.
Is it just possible in today's world that they both are of some quality???
As for BEER, well least everybody agrees that Coors Light is the best of the best!
