I'm not surprised. At least in the midwest where I live too. I just got back for the hospital for an emergency appendectomy, and my 5 speed manual TJ is still at my regular doctor's office where I...

Not the best for it because it has longer for combustion created moisture ans acids to condense in the oil. Not that bad for it like in the carburetor days though where there was more fuel dillution...

I'm kind of glad your keeping it, but they should say in the add that the seatbelts are covered up at the top.

I meant six in each side...so 12 altogether. I was concerned about weakening the frame too much with big holes on the tension side. If I recall correctly from Statics and Strength of Materials, hole...

I drilled drain holes in mine. I can't recommend or not recommend that. You don't want to weaken the frame, in any case, especially if it is already thinned by rust.
Time will tell if it works for...

Same temperature range? Again, it may be an intermittently leaking anti-drainback valve in the filter.
Let us know?

And synthetic corrects this in these particular engines? If so, that would be my choice too. I have not had an issue, myself, with evidence of dry starts with any engine I have owned at these...

Probably don't need the additional ZDDP, but I doubt it hurts, and the oil it came from the factory with probably had more of it than the new oils usually do. (I use an ad sometimes, too, knowing it...

Nice!
I had the stealership do mine and they just sucked out the old oil and replaced it without touching the cover or doing a proper drain and cleanup. Overcharged me, I think, too.

I don't think 29 degrees F is cold enough to make a dry start with a full sump of 10W-30 conventional if the filter is holding.


Oil pressure takes longer than normal to come up when the engine...

I suppose so.

60 HP on a VW? WooHoo! I was rated at 47 (the likely more accurate, post 1972 era, SAE net) and that poor thing labored all day to pull that camper around...LOL.

I can only give my opinion here, obviously: I would use Valvoline Synpower, Pennzoil Platinum, or Castrol Syntec (I think they call it all Edge, now) or Amsoil. I run the Valvoline if using...

I'm happy with the NEOx. I think they are 2 lumens each. Bright enough to see the guages but not so much glare at night. The LEDs dim with the dimmer, but not all that much. Maybe by half or less. I...

You probably wouldn't have an oil related failure, but if you did, it had better meet Chrylser specs.

(The "purple stuff" has no available and credible data to support its use by my standards.)

Unless the manual says otherwise, I'd change it. Why Mobil 1? Because it's cheap at Walmart? I'd stick to conventional or a synthetic with a better reputation, in my opinion.
