Dukegrad,

That 6.4 liter engine used by Ford is built by International.

I read that International was trying to replace the camshaft by using solonoid valve lifters that were computer controlled. That way they could vary the valve timing to match all conditions.

Cervan,

U should start sentences with capital letters because it is the correct thing to do and it makes U look smarter.

yeah, many folks aren't smart enough to realize you started a new sentence if you don't capitalize.

Hi, guys and gals...I'm back. I was in the slammer for 3 months, and I come back and find my posts still live on.

My point is, and will always be, the 3kmile oil change is DEAD. Yet some posters on these boards swear by it. It's time to wake up and smell the BS. 3kmiles oil changes are BS.

Roger?

I'm not going to argue with your oil change philosophy (there are plenty of people to do that), I'm just going to point out that you are insisting that something that is considered "car abuse" is the way to go, and on top of that, you are doing that on a CAR ENTHUSIAST FORUM.
You want to never change oil, good for you, just don't drag the rest of us into your BS.

You are incorrect on so many levels. Firstly, my point of never changing my oil is to show people here how over the top the 3kmile change is. 3kmile oil changing is not only a waste of money, but hurts us many other ways.

You can and will change your oil when you want. But if I put 100k or 150kmile on my benzs with no oil changes, you might start to think about going more than 3 or 5kmiles on your oil.

Get it?

but you have to add oil correct? which in effect is just like spending time and money to change it. You just skip the whole drain out the old part and top off... Maybe a new filter every 6 years and thats it...

I hear some water soluble valve grinding compound in the oil adds to the lubricity and helps the rings wear correctly

You shouldn't be calling peeps dumb. I believe that is in violation of the board's policy.

Have a nice day.

I changed my oil the other weekend. However, I did not do it because of any 3000 mile "rule."

The oil had about 1500 miles on it.

I didn't call you dumb, I said your idea is. Ruining a good vehicle by not changing your oil is STUPID. Your vehicle cost more energy to to manufacture than it will consume in it's lifetime and the only way to overcome this is to make it last as long as possible. Cars that never see an oil change are in wrecking yards everywhere. What a total waste of resources! Remember, there is such a thing as too much information. We didn't need to know you were in the slammer. Your post, not mine.

I don't think he was really in jail; rather, he was banned from this board for a period of three months, if memory serves me correctly.
