Great thread, I've always been a Quaker State High Mileage user. On my Altima I had Tein springs that lowered it just that little bit too far for my jack to get under so I had jiffy lube do that duty.

Seems like a statistical majority like the Mobil product, I'll give it a shot. I'd be interested in the Amsoil but I'm not going to go to the trouble to find a dealer who will sell me some. Irritating...

Hey what about oil filters? Can we have a poll on those????


Anything eccentric about the 4.7 oil change procedure I should know before I go under there?

I just switched to Quakerstate Q Horsepower but I'm starting to think about Amsoil. I just need to find a dealer in Calgary who caries it. Oh, and I have added ZMax to the tranny and motor too, been really pleased; at 4,500 km so far and it's still clear.

there is a poll that shows wut we are all using , for starters $57 Can money isn,t bad it cost me $75 here in the u.s.a. i use castrol which is very expensive oil
and you will notice its almost 7qt's not your normal 5qt's

paying some one to do the oily work is good enuff for me and not just that do you know how to reset the code to get the light to stop coming on..
i dont..........thats why i pay someone else

i do not know what the price of motor oil is going for in Canada but here in the states at Wal-Mart a 5qt container of synthetic sells anywhere from $21 to $23. If you do not want to change your own oil a lot of dealers will allow you to bring in your own motor oil and it will pay for the oil filter and service to change the motor oil.
