Do you have black oil?
Ive been hesitating posting this question.
I either feel its a dumb question, or I'm afraid of the answer.
Anyway here it goes..
For the 2017 and up 3.6 LGZ engines only, ONLY!,
Is your used oil totally black, or amber , or somewhere in between?
If you do have relatively clear oil, what oil and filter is used?
I ask this because I thought the newer engines were cleaner and the oils came out cleaner.
But I have had black-as-coal oil since change one. Even when I was doing 500 mile break in changes.
The Blackstone oil reports have been stellar so far, even though I don't use ultra high filtration sub-micron filters.
I use Mobil1 full syn Dexos1 5w-30 and K&N filters. Is the K&N not filtering out the blackness? I wouldn't expect it to. Its high flow, not high filtration. A trade-off Im willing to take.
I have a lot of paranoia riding on this so please be honest!
The blackness probably isn't doing any harm at all so i don't know what Im worried about. Unless the PCV isn't working.
Gawd knows Ive mucked around with it enuf.
All gave some, some gave all, protesters gave nothing.
