So no catch can either this time again? For being 3 yrs old, switching from M1 to amsoil was the biggest noticeable difference. I also switched gas from Hele (hawaii branded) top tier to Texaco. Added bg44k. Why is bg marketed for gdi engines if it wont help? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
Yes, under warranty. No hassles. Only issue, it's been 2 months so far. They all look like that, really weird. The tech said the engine is way too young to look like that. Was thinking of a catch can when it was new, now I kinda regret I didnt. I wanna see everyone else's engine looks like How often is everyone changing oil? Are y'all running full syn? And are you guys putting additives. I was using M1 and I always thought 0W-20 was kinda thin. Amsoil 0w-20 isnt as thin. And I noticed a difference immediately. Everything felt smoother. And is WOT an everyday thing? I treat my 02 single cab way worse and drive it aggressively almost daily and she has never let me down. Those engines are indestructible. 140k miles and shes still going strong.
Can anyone give me insight as to what's causing my engine to be replaced at such low mileage? Went to get warranty work done because truck would have a slight knocking sound close to rear of front tire (bellhousing area). A week before truck gets dropped off, CEL comes on. It threw a P0308 code. Two weeks later, truck is still being diagnosed. Then, they report back saying cylinder 8 test was all good, but it is still misfiring. Noise persists and they reccomend engine tear down. They find that lifters need to be replaced along with camshaft due to pitting. Then send in parts sheet which include all new lifters, seals, camshaft, actuator and gaskets. Most of which are backordered. 1 month goes by and engine now needs to be replaced, a lot of carbon deposit and buildup is found and #8 cylinder wall is scored up. Deposit was so bad they say there was also rust. My question is how did this happen? This truck is babied, never has seen WOT or even 80+ mph. Maintenance has been on time. Amsoil signature every 4-5k miles, premium gas (one brand all its life), synthetic air filter, a can of BG44K every oil change. I'm just confused? Is it bad gas? Is it improper maintenance? Someone help me out.
