Condensation in filler neck tube on 04 tahoe.... Ok so i had my tahoe for a while and it has 130k miles on it. I was checking the fluids because i losses water so i filled it and i was checking the oil and...

Normal for the most part

Condensation when cold &
the yellow is most likely dyes
in the oil additive package

Make sure the PCV System works &
no vacuum leaks

I did not say change the valve,never
needs to be changed,clean every 3 years,
if you like

If you were to remove the valve covers, you
really wouldn't like what you see.

Only what I have done for 20 years -- I use Mobil 1
full syn & never go over 4,000 miles & things stay

I have had 2 oil pans off,not of my choice & they
were clean.

I used Valvoline Semi Syn back before that & no issues

I like a half quart of Marvel Mystery Oil in there
My not be of any value, but haven't had any issues
with OBD2 Systems with 5W-20 Mobil 1 & Marvel
or 0W-30 Mobil 1 on the really old vehicles

What oil should i use for my 96 saturn sl2

The engine on a 1996 Saturn SL uses SAE 5w-30 engine oil. The recommended oil-change interval for this engine is every 3,000 miles or three months, whichever comes sooner.
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

What kind of oil do i use for a 2000 dodge carivan?


You will need to use a 10W-30 grade engine oil, such as any of the following Mobil products.
"Fully synthetic" oils are more expensive. Conventional oils or syn blend engine oils are fine for the vehicle but need to be changed more frequently.

What kind of oil should I put into a 2004 volvo s40 with 121K miles?

We use mobil 1 0w40 at the shop. Its thin at start up so it gets to the lifters while cold then its factory viscosity at operating temp. ALWAYS use mobil 1 . Its far better than any other

Is it okay to change my oil early? And what is a good oil to use besides the recommended motorcraft? I am currently using Mobile 1 full synthetic

No harm in changing early and mobil 1 is a great oil, only once you use full synthetic make sure you continue to use it.
