Update: I no longer run Mobile 1 10w30 and will be switching to a 10w30 with ACEA A3 ratings after reading "My oil is killing my engine!" thread.

I use rottella(spelling) diesel oil. If you have a 4.0 be sure to use oil w/phos and zinc at a high rating.

just gonna say i hate absolutely hate sythetic and pretty much anything thats not produced by valvaline. i use valvaline in my bike and my jeep.

i use straight 30 weight in the bike nearly year round had it 5 years and the bike has ~60k miles on it without a rebuild (yes in dear need of a rebuild but i refuse can still do 140mph)

the jeep i use 10w30 in the winter for the colder mornings and 10w40 during the summer for the more intense heat ive not had any problems.


quakers state is a no go and so is synthetic in my book ive seen dirty *** heads from both, but thats not to say valvaline doesnt have its probs too, ive just not found them.

BOOOOOO to no poll, but I use 10-30 dino, 76k on my jeep and the engine is running strong with regular pil changes and norm dino oil. I run the jeep in the bitter cold northeast, as well as hot hunid summers and conventional oil has not wronged me.

I also use the Rotella 10-30w with a Bosch filter. I don't know what the previous owner had in there but the oil psi went back to normal (little over 40) and it stopped blanking out at 0 when slowing down and making turns. (?)

Regular ol' Valvoline 10w-30 in the summer, 5w-30 in the winter. The 4.0l is a 40 year old tractor engine. Keep something in it, change it on a regular basis, and you're not going to have an engine oil related failure. I've personally seen a 4.0 go through hell, ie no oil on the dipstick. Filled it back up and ran fine for many many more miles.

10w30 is good all year round in the South, IMHO.

I typically use whatever good quality oil is on sale at the time and Motorcraft filters.
