One of those few times we agree Kirk. In this case the coolant leak is pretty obvious. Take away the coolant leak and the oil company would be looking long and hard for a way out.
Impossible for the oil company to look long and hard if you follow their directions.
If you change the oil using the 'severe service' category,what could they find.

Even when cheap oil was used that actually was causing sludge build up across almost all makes and models,the mfg's were the ones who got sued/blamed,when it should have been the oil companies that got sued(big oil in this case).

Motorists were basically running garbage for lube,unless they were using 100% synthetic PAO,or something very close.
That is the reason for GM creating a dexos standard,and also the European oil standards that practically mock the API standards.
