Just curious what different people are running in their 4.0L's. I remember someone told me years back that by running 5w30 and little adjustment you can get rid of the typical "ticking" or "knocking" that the 4.0L makes well running. Anyways I tried searching the forum. Just curious if anyone isn't running 10w30 and why?
i run 10w-30 high mileage in my 4.0L the ticking noise grew on me plus it sounds like diesel i read somewhere the ticking noise is hard to rid of the 4.0 always made a ticking noise for some reason idk.

10w30 Mobil 1, oil changed @ 7,500 miles.
Also run full synthetic in the diffs, tranny, xcase and PS. I picked up an honest 2mpg.

If you love wealth more than liberty,the tranquility of servitude more than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains sit lightly on your shoulders and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.

"Your right, the Tea Party and the OWS are the same, just like the America Revolution and the French Revolution were the same. The only problem is the American Revolution ended with Liberty, Freedom, Justice for all and a shining light upon a hill. The French Revolution ended with lynchings, guillotines, murder and socialism. So yeah, I could see how one could confuse the two..."
Whatever is on sale at WalMart. 5w30 winter and 10w40 summer.
It's just oil, the brand is not as important as regular changes every 3-4,000 miles.
Well that is sorta right it's not the oil it the additives they add. Now what is more important is the oil filter.
You can buy the most expensive oil out there with the best performance ratings without the oil filter that will clean it up you have just wasted your money. So if you are looking at what to spend your money on buy the best filter you can find and the cheapest good quality oil can get then you will have the winning formula. Do not buy those $4-7 filters spend a little more there.
