Driving 2010 3L Auto:

Are these the Oils in use? Any benefits over the higher priced Amsoil vs the Total that the firm is using?

I've used both - can't really tell a difference.

What you have to do is your own reading etc, and see after significant mileage what oil holds up.
When I did that 2 years ago, Amsoil seemed to have always been infront of any other, so I've been using that ever since.

The firm made the switch from Amsoil to Total in 2009/10 I think and they used it twice in my Ranger before I started carrying the Amsoil.

My Ranger approaching 50,000Km and it pulls just as the day I bought it. Doesnt smoke at all.
Amsoil 15w40 - Your van should take around 7 - 8 quarts.
If you buy by the case, you have half (4 quarts) for your next change.

Hey,
I spoke to Tony at Pro lube, he told me Mc Enearney has amsoil, all you have to do is request it. He seemed reluctant to sell to me directly but gave me the name of a dealer in my area. he also mentioned that he has an amsoil filter which will last the life of the oil, 20,000km. has anyone used the amsoil filter, any feedback.

thanks

thanks for the info man. gonna change those oils, piston and rubbers for clutch master and slave cylinder and possibly clutch disc, r/bearing and pressure plate. i'll decide on changing all the suspension bushings when im under the van and see what they looking like.

Tech Thread - Ford Ranger

Postby civic minded » April 4th, 2012, 8:59 am

So -I am in the firm right now - was getting a vibration and noise from the rear axles , my van is doing 68k and got scared that the differentials need changing. Thankgod it was the cross needed changing and the diff is fine .
When you van does 30k you need to change the diff oil, forget what anyone says , change the oil!!
I am making them do this. The service manage told me that the diff is still under warranty and I shouldn't worry.
