Engine Oil Weight
I got a scolding from a member wanting to know why I would give him bad advice about running a higher then 20wt engine oil in his car
He stated after talking to many people that running higher then 20wt would "blow the seals, and the head gasket " This has to be the dumbest most moronic thing I have ever seen , engine oil blowing a head gasket ???
There is no more PSI on the seals or the head gasket with 50wt then there is with 10wt
Running 20wt oil is fine if you driving the car normal back and forth to work and to the grocery store or in the winter under extreme cold conditions , once you start modding your engine you need more protection with a higher wt oil , I run 40 in the winter and 50 in the summer but most dont have turbos and making the power I do
The engines I build I tell most to run 30or40 winter and 40or50 summer depending on there HP and what they use it for, this is my opinion/advise it does not mean this is what you have to do
I would love for the guy that told him he would have head gasket issues to post and explane
Please post your oil opinions about going to a higher WT oil for better protection
