    Has anyone used the 5w30 Valvoline Max Life in their 2.8l V6? I used this in my Subaru and it was great, sent a couple samples to Blackstone Labs and it held up really well I was getting 9000 miles between oil changes with minimal breakdown. I have read the specs and such just curious about real...

    $4.99 a quart for Valvoline's synthetic meeting VW Spec 502.00, 505.0 and 505.01 with formal OEM approval. Pretty good price for synth, what with Mobil 1 0w-40 running at over $7 a quart.

    has anyone looked into this? i picked up my brake parts yesterday and got a pamphlet about it. it says "Defects in vehicle manufacture that should be the responsibility of the manufacturer are not covered.

    saw this on SD. Synpower 5w-40 is a vw 502.00 approved oil. Rebate form can be requested at Valvoline Website (limit one per household, expires Sept 15th 2008) Then purchase the 5 qualifying quarts of Synpower motor oil from Autozone, they are running a 5qt + Bosch oil filter special for...

    Check out your local Advance autoparts for the deal. They didn;t have anything like a 5W-40 but they had 5W-30 which I know sounds low BUT is on the official sludge free recomended oils. http://72.232.196.98/~dpham00/passat/vwsludge3.jpg Comes to about 2.70 a quart. Unbeatable. No rebates...

    Advance Auto Parts is doing their Valvoline SynPower BOGO offer right now, all weights. If they don't have 5W40, you should be able to order it. Their TotalGrip oil filters (made by Purolator, per BITOG) are also BOGO. Never used it before, but BITOG reviews are positive. Don't know if they...

    Saw this...figured some of you might be able to take advantage of it...doesn't do much good for us in the West, but maybe those in other areas can take advantage of it. Pretty cheap price, for a vw 502.00 approved oil. Make sure to buy synpower 5w-40...

    Advance Auto has a BOGO (Buy One, Get One Free) sale on Valvoline Synpower. I'm not sure if they carry 5w-40 SYnpower or not, but I thought I'd pass this along.

    I was curious if any one has had sucess in getting money back from Valvoline on repairs caused by them. I just had my cracked oil pan replaced and it's clearly due to a over-torqued drain bolt. They also over torqued the oil filter but they didn't damage the oil cooler... LUCKY. But I will...

    It appears that many of the 'heretic' ATF threads haven't been updated in a while, so I ask all of you that have kicked the OEM fluid habit to please post your current mileage and observations. Thanks in advance!

    I just heard from two reliable sources that newer North American versions or Castrol, Valvoline, and Mobil-1 oils may lose Mercedes Benz and VW/Audi certification due to their new formulation. Once current dealership stock of spec oil is exhausted, many will be switching to different brands...

    I just happened to go to NAPA today to pick up some oil and when it rang up at $4.19/quart, I ordered 3 more cases to take advantage of the sale. I don't know if this sale is at every NAPA store across the country. I did buy 2 different weights (5W30 and 20W50 - no, neither is for a VW) so I...
