Is it really any better than any other oil? <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt021' />[/quote]



So far I haven't found any evidence of any other companies fluids or filters or complete line of products that match the Amsoil line........and my Titan agrees!...... <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt004' />

I had mine changed this morning, to lazy to do it myself so I took it to Valvoline. At least they do a better job then the Nissan dealer who doesn't know how to tighten a drain plug.

Nobody touches my girls fluids but me! lol......and besides do you think they would know where to look for all the hose connections, seals and other fluids/issues?.. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/004.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt021' />

A little tip for all of you guys and dolls changing your oil. Before putting a new filter on (btw, I've been fond of the Purolator brand but not too crazy about the sand coating they have begun to use on the outside of their filters), try filling/priming the filter with @ 1/4 of a quart of the 6.5 quarts you will be using on the oil change. My dad is a retired Matco tool distributor and he has told me that ALL mechanics he's sold tools too, dealership or private garages, recommend doing this. It helps protect against 'dry start-ups'. Just fill a few times until the level of the oil inside the filter is @ 1" below the threads so it doesn't spill out since our filter assemblies are on an angle.

Howd I miss this thread? Every oil change I spend a good amount of time under her with a flashlight. Check all clamps, hoses, gaskets, etc... Great info Big Dan. Thanks!
