Well, I am old school, I do not buy into "High Mileage"oils, nor synthetic oils, nor synthetic blends...unless your car has required it and has seen only synthetic since day 1.

I suggest as long as you change oil and the filter every 3000 or 3 months, and can afford to do so, i wouldn't worry about the best, barring there are no current revealing problems. Just use the proper viscosity oil for your car, and proper level. I think your car is 10w-30 year round, 4 1/2 qts. with filter change...always check level after change to make sure it's on par.

Popular brands are CAM-2, Penzoil, Valvoline, Quaker State, Castrol, Mobil. They are all the same to me.

These are only suggestions...you do what you think is best for you.

SOURCE: Having to replace engine on 2006 GX 470 Lexus (90,000 Miles)

Transmission and drive train should be fine, no issues there due to mileage difference. The lower miles is a plus on the used engine, however, the concern is: 1. how well was the used engine maintained? Did the owner change oil on a regular basis, or not often enough? 2. Where was the car hit? Depending on the point of impact of the crash, it may have 'tweaked' pulleys, or components, which may give you trouble later on. It probably isn't possible to get these answers, as the engine and car may have been separated a while ago, or the info just isn't available. I would say it depends on how much you like the car (and your desire to keep it), and whether or not the dealer will include some type of warranty, so you have some peace of mind if issues do arise down the road. If the buy back offered is good, all the more reason to get rid of the car. My opinion is, you shouldn't have to worry about these things in an '06 car. Good luck!

2001 deville oil pressure light came on twice. do I start with the sending unit? what could be the problem? It has 90,000 miles on it.


The best place to check the oil level. The next best place to start is to confirm that there is no problem in the oil supply system by having the oil pressure tested with a known mechanical gauge. IF the oil pressure proves to be correct then have the sender and wiring checked out

Have 90,000 miles...what weight oil do you recommend?...is synthetic okay for an older model ? when is a car considered an antique ? will the appraisal value increase at that point in time ? thank you!


Do not use a synthetic oil, synthetics break down faster in engines of that age that have been running non-synthetic. Keep running a high milage 10w30. My opinion is Valvoline is the best.

CAR WAS RUNNING GREAT AND WENT SOMEWHERE AND IT SET FOR ABOUT 3 HOURS WHEN I STARTED IT BACK UP, THE MOTOR IS KNOCKING. JUST HAD OIL CHANGE 4 DAYS PRIOR TO THIS. IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING HITTING PLASTIC...


Anything is possible, But first check your oil and make sure nothing is hitting any moving parts on your motor. Like your pulleys were your belt runs.After you do this repost with results.If there is no oil return to place you had the oil change done.

What are the oil change guidelines for 2005 E-350 superduty chassis with more than 90,000 miles...the same question for the transmission fluids?


The good practice is to change the oil every 3,000 miles...but what really dictates this is what type of driving condition you are incurring.

If you drive all highway miles then an oil change between 1,500 and 3,000 miles is highly encouraged.

Dirty/dusty conditions....definitely around 1,500 to 2,000 miles.

The average for tranny fluid/filter changes goes from the additional 60-90,000 mile mark and then every 50,000-60,000 miles after that....it is shortened by heavy duty and dirty/dusty conditions.

When to replace timing chain on 2003 Camry V6?


Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles.

It will not damage the motor (bend the valves) if it breaks or jumps time

Finally, if you do change the belt, make sure that the water pump is inspected very close for any evidence of coolant seepage at the impeller shaft weep hole. If there is ANY evidence of wetness or leakage, replace the pump then. Easier to change the pump when the belt is off, than to have to do the whole job if the leak gets worse, and, if it leaks down the road, coolant on the timing belt will damage the belt, and you will have to buy a new belt, too. Change the plugs at 90 K miles, too.
