Valvoline \"Max Life\" Opinions

Has anyone used Vavoline Max Life Engine Oil? I'm due for an oil change & I'm wondering if this stuff works as advertised.

(To Sandman: Yes, I did use a descriptive title.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img])

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Thank you for the descriptive title... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] That'll make it way easier to find later on when it slips farther down the list... [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

And what is Valvoline Max Life oil supposed to do? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Haven't seen any commercials about it...

Tim,

It is specially designed for higher mileage engines. Costs a little bit more, Ive never actually tried it myself. But from what I hear it is pretty awesome.

Yeah, it supposedly conditions your old valve seals and keeps them from leaking
into the combustion chamber. I think mine have had it, though. Good idea for an oil though if it works.

Re: Valvoline \"Max Life\" Opinions

Okay, I've had this stuff in for one oil change and it didn't mess up my engine. I don't know if I've really seen any difference between it and and regular, non-synth, oils though.

Re: Valvoline \"Max Life\" Opinions

i suppose you could tell if it did anything if you truck burned a little oil before the oil change, then doesn't burn as much/any since the oil change...
