lol makes my 153K mile truck seem like a baby

what does that slick 50 stuff say it fixes? the truck has some noisey lifters when its cold (worn out/leaking) once its warmed up and the oil is thin they work fine and quiet as can be

id rather try everything i can before i have to pull the head (that means new gasket, headbolts, weekend, new lifter set, etc)

That's assuming we both continue to accumulate miles at about the same rate. I am putting about 25k/year on the Geo. So I guesstimated about 13 years or so to catch up.

I usually run 1500-2500 miles per month depending on how much running I have to do. This last 1000 miles did take nearly a month, but we were out of town for a few days and I drove another car on that trip which consisted of about 400-425 miles.

Very impressive! Shame these cheap imports can't perform so well.
