  • What brand of motor oil for you like?

    I have been waiting years to ask this...

    What brand of motor oil do you like?

    Me- 1st- Castrol, 2nd Valovine

    And I will never use unless its an emergency- Penzoil (based on a wax base that gets into the pores of the metal in the engine)

        My new Mustang will get Mobil 1 or Castrol Syntec... my son's Mustang gets Mobil 1. His is the 2001 laser red, mine is the 2006 tungsten gray.







        My F150 and wifey's Grand Cherokee get Castrol, as that is the brand my mechanic's shop does their oil changes with.

            Great minds think alike....

            The 2001 was my son's high school graduation present in 2002. We were planning to go to Europe for a week with him, as he is a big WW2 history buff. September 11th happened, and there was no way that Wifey was getting on a plane for a while, so we bought him the 'Stang instead.

            He invested $6K in modifications, a body kit and paint in the last 5 years.

            He did get a European trip as a gift for his college graduation, going to London, Rome and Paris.

              Most times I use Penzoil. Never heard of the problems mentioned above.

                Like it-a lot!

                Gonzo-really rate your F150--it and the GMC clones are pretty rare and mucho dinero over here.

                  Mobil 1 synthetic for the Subie and the Impala. Probably going to switch to another brand though....Probably Castrol. Plan on buying a new 4Runner Sport next year or so and will use Castrol synthetic in that too.

                      Gonzo --we speak the same language (well sort of) "detailing vehicles" is this when you clean/add accessories/improve vehicles?

                      As I say," English English" ain't American English!

                      If your answer is yes--the expression here and as far as I can remember in the UK too-"Valeting service" or Car Grooming



                      If, as I suspect ,I am right--your "toys" are a very good advert for your business venture!

                      Next question what cleaning products-please!

                            Valvoline, basically because of all the R&D that they put into thier motor oil program; and because they sponser my buddies Nextel Cup car.

                            Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.

                              Detailing is the thorough cleaning a vehicle inside and out. I do everything from the paintwork to the interior to cleaning engine compartments.

                              My cleaning products....

                              I use cleaners, compounds, clays, polishes and waxes from 3M, Meguiar's Professional and Detailer lines, Mothers, Sonus, the Wax Shop, Liquid Glass, S-100 carnauba wax, CAR products, DuPont and ZEP, just to name a few!

                              I have all the toys.. a small extractor for cleaning cloth upholstery and carpeting, a wet-dry vacuum cleaner, a Makita rotary polisher, Porter Cable and GEM orbital polishers with a selection of foam cutting, polishing and finishing pads and a Campbell Hausfeld pressure washer.

                              I use microfiber towels for product removal.

                              As for products used.. it all depends on the condition of the car and the color of the car. Black cars get synthetic waxes and polishers, as black paintwork and other really darkcolors can reach up to 250 + degrees and carnauba waxes begin to evaporate around 180 Farenheit!

                              Here are two pics that I took of vehicles that I detailed.. I love reflection shots! This is "moi" reflected in the the passenger side door of a 2006 metallic black Toyota Corrola.



                              This is a side shot of a friend's 2004 F250 HD. My son's Mustang and my truck can be seen in the garage!
