    Here is one suggestion: That is the single unit with the return going to the oil fill cap adapter. If it were mine I would mount against the frame rail. Here are some examples:

    Actually if you are in a cold climate time would have a greater detrimental value than mileage as the moisture buildup will take more toll on the alkalinity of the oil. Some people see the white foam on the underside of the oil fill cap. Get a by-pass filter and forget about it. Our bypass...

    Hello!! I will be having another AMSOIL give away contest this month but first I just wanted to post something about our undustrial line in the of-topic area. As a dealer I write a newsletter or two each month to help my dealers with their AMSOIL business as well as commercial account...

    Overheated Transmission ?

    Naturally I will suggest trying AMSOIL Synthetic ATF. It will keep your fluid temperatures down 20 to 60 degrees F and not only will it keep the clutches clean but will last 3 times longer. A 2.5 gallon bottle normally sells for $74.25 but I will sell this one for $65 if you want to give it a...

    SEA FOAM!!!

    Yes, The power foam is very similar but one can is enough for two treatments. Or sometimes I use the last 1/4 of the can to clean the exterrior of the engine. It's labeled for this purpose too. How the AMSOIL Power Foam works, is it's a aerosol. You can just insert the tube in the same vacuum...

    Amsoil's Full synthetic, long interval OIL

    Ford requires 75W140 because they get $26 per quart! that's why. But if you are hauling heavy loads I would continue to use it. Not all the rear ends say to use the 140 in the rear though. The AMSOIL 75W140 is only $11.00 per quart or less for Preferred customers.

    Amsoil's Full synthetic, long interval OIL

    Thanks. I suggest our ATF for the Trans and transfer case. We have several sizes. The 2.5 gal is popular for automatics. Just let me know. For the engine I suggest the 0W30 and the engine flush if you are not running synthetic now. The 5W30 is great too and costs a bit less. One of my...

    Mercon V or Mercon 3?

    AMSOIL ATF meets Mercon and Mercon V. Lowers temperatures 20 to 60 degrees F and is guaranteed for three times longer. If you change out at 30,000 you can run this to 90,000. Since it prevents carbon buildup it also keeps older units clean and removes sludge on the friction bands. We have a...

    Amsoil's Full synthetic, long interval OIL

    Yes, the whole point to AMSOIL is they have been improving the products for 30 years now. They guarantee that the oil will hold to its minimum viscosity per the drain interval. I have seen oil analysis on other synthetics near 10,000 miles and they bacame 20WT oils. Being the sponsor and...

    Re: Chez No problem at all. Usually I see them around a 22 which brings suspicion to a bad air filter. No, that looks fine to me. Now if you didn't maintain that filer you will see that value increase.

    Hey William, Hi, This is Ches, the Amsoil Dealer. I would not worry about the viscosity unless you get to a 16. Since you change the full flow filters out more rapidly, I would not change the bypass until 25,000 or once a year. It is designed to hold a significant amount of contaminants...
