Question about Cars & Trucks
My car has 200,000 miles. We have always kept up the maintenance schedule and the car runs great. When I get the oil changed they have been putting in Pennzoil Platinum High Mileage motor oil and I have them add a can of B&G oil additive. I have been reading how the Pennzoil high mileage protects the motor and was wondering if it is necessary to use the B&G oil additive with the Pennzoil or do they both do the same thing? Thanks, Shirley
Its really not needed. most modern motors oils are more than good enough to use. especially synthetics

id say that when the car hits around 55,000 miles giving it around 10,000 to use the oil to the fullest also change the filters,sparkplugs and wires, and add some kind of gas tank cleaner to keep the car running strong :)

Best bet is to consult your owners' manual, however, there is one thing to expect to come up soon that won't be mentioned there. Delco alternators usually croak at about 62-65,000 miles like clockwork. Be prepared for it.

Follow your owners manaul, it has all the services needed according to mileage, of course if you havent been following the book, it doesnt do much good, and you are overdue for Coolant, Trans fluid/ filter, belts, filters, ect. Your car should have a timing chain.
