Wow! I never thought i would get flamed for this

I do think it would reduce the number of oil threads since they are usually caused by people who are new to online forums and the search function. If you put it right in their face, maybe they wouldnt ask.

all the best...

My 300TD seems to do just fine on Walmart Supertech 15W40. And Walmart Supertech antifreeze too.
(At least it's not deep green like the 'bad' stuff!)

Happy Motoring, Mark

I love that Larry Bible post - particularly the juanpalencio or whatever his handle was - begging for help, mere inches below a tedious and thorough explanation on how to post effectively. Alanis Morrissette even wrote a song about it.

You don't understand. I am not new, I am not searching for info and I am not looking to start an oil thread. I am looking to suggest a method to reduce the number of oil threads. I appologize if i did'nt make it clear from the start. It seems people think its a bad idea, so nevermind it.

Take care

The Turbo Diesel Truck oil is the same as the Delvac that Lance likes. I was just trying to be funny, hence the .

With an OM603 you may want to give the true synthetics a chance, they might help quiet your lifters. If they are clacking. I'm being serious now for new folks reading this thread.
