OK everyone, let's see what you have for the following:

1. Brand of Oil (please specify if Synthetic, regular or semi (Castrol Syntec appears to be such).

2. Weight of Oil

3. Mileage on your Engine

4. Average Low and High temperature where you live.

1) Castrol non synthetic

2) 10W-30

3) engine has about 4400 miles on it

4) while I might drive the car, the temps range from 30 in the late Fall at night to 90 in midsummer - New England. Mostly the car sees mid 70s and leads an easy life.

1. Valvoline regular oil
2. 10w30
3. Approx 2500 miles since I re-built it completely.
4. Temps when I am driving the car range from 50 to 90 degrees. I live in Michigan, so only driven from late spring to early fall. Otherwise, it gets really cold when in storage.
