How to Get Extended Service Life from a Car
A 1992 Geo Prizm owned by Ted Pickul of Sarasota, Florida has gone over the 254,000 mile mark with only 10 oil changes and 20 oil filters installed during its long life.
The vehicle was purchased new in June of 1992. He immediately converted it over to AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil. Pickul also installed an AMSOIL Oil Filter and 2-Stage Air Filter.
“The engine is a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder which has never had any major damage,” Pickul said. “The valve covers have never been removed, and when you remove the oil cap and look inside the valve cover it is just as clean today as when it was new.”
AMSOIL Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid was installed at the 30,000 mile mark. It has been changed four times since.
“I tend to use a 16oz. Bottle of PI Gasoline Additive every three or four months,” Pickul said, “and Power Foam has been used on the injectors and linkage every 30,000 mile intervals. When the odometer rolled over the 200,000 mile mark, I switched my oil over to AMSOIL 10W-40.”
So now that his Geo Prizm has reached the 254,000 mile mark, what does Pickul plan to do with it? “This vehicle has been truly given the whole AMSOIL treatment,” Pickul said, “and it still runs like a top! It’s a rolling testimonial to the excellent quality of AMSOIL products. “I plan to keep this vehicle until it literally dies. I will keep you all posted after it crosses the 300,000 mile mark and beyond. Thank you for formulating the best lubricants that money can buy!”
Getting Extended Life Out of an Engine
John Redmon of Eustis, Florida can vouch for the added benefits of superior synthetic lubricants. He feels that his truck’s long service life can be attributed to using AMSOIL products since he bought it.
Redmon bought his 1992 Chevrolet S-10 in 1994. At the time, the odometer read 40,000 miles. “The day I bought it,” Redmon says, “I took it in and had the oil changed to 10W-30 AMSOIL, but only after I had the engine flushed with AMSOIL engine cleaner.”
Redmon is a courier by trade, and his truck is his service vehicle. His business demands a lot of driving and his truck is used in all types of traffic.
As of February 2001, Redmon’s engine and truck have over 320,000 miles on them. “Even my mechanic and insurance company are surprised that the engine has not been rebuilt once since I have been the owner,” Redmon said. Redmon’s mechanic said that he sees no reason to rebuild the engine any time in the near future either.
“Even with this mileage I still feel safe enough to take this truck on a coast to coast trip without worry,” said Redmon. “I thought you might want to know that I attribute the longevity of this truck to your products.”
409,000 Miles Without an Oil Change
Haywood Gray’s 1990 Mack E7-400 engine should have shown some evidence of having gone 409,000 miles without an oil change, but it didn’t. “I didn’t see any surprises in there at all,” said owner/operator Gray when the engine was finally torn down. In fact, analysis showed the engine was as wear-free as an engine in comparable service treated to 20 times the oil changes.
The results can only be credited to AMSOIL. Gray used AMSOIL Synthetic 15W-40 Heavy Duty Diesel and Marine Oil, an AMSOIL By-Pass Oil Filter and periodic oil analysis.
The E7-400 was torn down by the local Mack dealership and its parts were examined by a certified independent engine rater. It showed only light to moderate wear throughout.
The rater even concluded that the engine parts could have been put right back on for continued use.
The teardown oil analysis confirmed the rater’s findings. The sample’s content of wear metals was extremely low: one-sixth the lead and one-third the iron allowed by Mack condemnation limits- after 409,000 miles without an oil change.
Traveling Man Could Drive His Truck 1,000,000 Miles With AMSOIL
Extensive Traveler and his fully AMSOIL-equipped 1978 Chevy truck have driven more than three quarters of a million miles and gone through two sets of seats and there’s no stopping either of them.
Melvin Willis bought his 1978 Chevy pickup truck with only 13,000 miles. He installed AMSOIL motor oil right away.
Willis and his truck have driven all over the country, putting over 728,000 miles on the truck since he bought it. Willis’s oil of choice for his long-lived Chevy truck is AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil.
After driving a total of 275,000 miles, Willis had an ideal opportunity to purchase a brand new engine at an unbeatable price. He bought the new motor and installed it in the Chevy truck. Naturally, he put AMSOIL motor oil in the engine right from the start.
Willis and his Chevy have driven more than 450,000 miles with the new engine installed. Willis is particularly proud that neither the valve covers not the oil pan were ever removed from either engine.
“It’s a good old truck,” says Willis. “She still runs like a brand new truck. I’ve driven it so much it’s even on its third set of new seats.”
Two-decades-old Camaro proves the superiority of AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants
Richard Clanton switched from motor oil to motor oil in his 1980 Z28 Chevrolet Camaro. He played the same game with oil filters.
When the engine had accumulated over 29,300 miles, Clanton installed AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Motor Oil and AMSOIL Super Duty Full-Flow and By-Pass Filters.
“The engine now has almost 170,000 miles,” said Clanton, “and the same oil has almost 70,000 miles over five years.”
Clanton is very happy with the way AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants have protected his Camaro. “My toy is fully lubricated with AMSOIL products,” said Clanton of his Camaro, “including oil and air filters. My only regret is that I didn’t pay attention the first time AMSOIL was introduced to me. When I think of the thousands of dollars and the hundreds of hours I wasted replacing parts I could have left in if I had been using AMSOIL, I feel foolish. I thought children never listened, but I’ve found adults are worse when exposed to new ideas and information. It’s so refreshing to find a company with such integrity. AMSOIL is an example for all.”
