(Poppy? quick350?) had mentioned LucasOil. While I remember Buzz had said something about being wary of oil additives. just thought i'd ask for some recommendations before mixing up a cocktail in my crakcase. I think what Buzz was talking about was lubrication additives (friction reducers). Something that would cause your clutch to become unusually slick. Something that's designed specifically for sealing old gaskets shouldn't pose a big problem to the shifting system... But I'm not an expert on the matter so if hopefully someone else can either back me or let me know what I'm wrong about.,,,

The key to the answer is oil consumption. IF the unit burns less than a quart in 1500 miles then you can expect reasonable longevity and any issues you can afford to fix, oil consumption is too expensive to fix.

Bought certified BMX 335i convertible and after only 3000 miles of driving the low oil light is on. Is this normal oil consumption or is there a problem?

Though I am not familiar with the 2007 model, on the e46s, I know that the low oil light comes on when you are down only about 1/2 quart. Does your model have a dip stick?
A half quart in 3000 miles is not cause for concern. Most of them burn a bit less than that, at least during the first 200k miles, but some burn more. It depends to some extent what kind of oil you are using. It will burn more Mobile1 than it will Castrol Syntec, for example.
I have an '04 330 that uses about a half quart in 7k miles between oil changes, and an '04 325 that goes through a quart every thousand miles. I am only a little concerned about the 325. I would not be at all concerned about a half quart in 3k miles.

Every how many miles do I change the oil on a vstar 1100

3000 to 5000 miles is the range. 3000 miles city driving or up to 5000 miles touring miles. Some people change yearly or at 2000 miles. That is probably excessive and wasteful (of money and oil). Typically if you drive your motorcycle a lot, you will sense when it is running louder and with more vibration. That is how the motorcycle tells you that it wants an oil change.
You can use any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Car oils use different additives and may cause scoring in certain types of cam bearings. Do not use any oil that says " Energy Conserving " on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. If you choose Synthetic oils, they will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. Shell Rotella T and Rotella T Synthetic 15w-40 are inexpensive JASO MA oils. You will need 4 quarts of oil, an aluminum drain plug washer, and a filter. Pour in 3.3 quarts , run the motor, and check the oil level . Top up as needed.

My 2005 f150 5.6 triton uses a little less than a quart between oil changes, is this normal?

No. How many miles on this truck? Is it using oil or losing oil? High mileage engines use oil because piston rings are worn along with everything else. A quart low is too much.

How much oil usage is normal?

1 quart every 2000 miles. Not all cars are created equal. The same model may burn alot less or even more.

Just bought a 2003 2500hd with 48000 miles. how often are the fron wheel bearings serviced and can or should synthetic oil be used in this engine ( 8.1 ).

I wouldn't recommend using synthetic oil in an 8.1 because they are known to use 1 to 2 quarts between oil changes and its kinda of a waste of expensive oil.. I always run 10w 30w in these engines. front wheel bearings.. they are non serviceable or packable they are a sealed hub unit. Inspection is raising the vehicle to where the front wheels are off the ground and shake them top to bottom when you feel play, they are due to be replaced they usually last 100k miles or less..

Can you use a full synthetic oil in 93 Dodge B250 Conversion van

Yes. Providing the engine has been well maintained and does not have lots lof sludge in it. I do not recommend flush (it loosens up too much debris all at one time and can plug pump screen. On older engines i usually introduce synthetic in "stages", replacing two quarts on first oil change, then 100% at 3000 miles (with filter). Does it work?? I used synthetic (amsoil) in a 318 engine bought at 100k miles and ran it till the trans finally started slipping @ 363K miles. When I bought it it had some light lifter noise. After using synthetic for a few months, noise disappeared and I never had any internal problems for the remainder of the time I had it (and sold car for $400 just for the engine!!!) As far as seaks go, usually synthetics will soften hard seals and lessen leaks valve covers etc may leak more but usually are easy to replace. Good luck PS: only synthetic I would not use is Mobil because there are more additive packages and less actual lubricant in each quart than you could imagine: it has been "re-formulated" at least ten times since they first put it on the market.
