Honestly it ain't worth it. He's probably some old grouch just looking for attention and is flexing keyboard muscle.

Miro: I stand corrected I do hate a few things: liars, cheats, thieves, con artists who use the internet to shill garbage, and spew false information, then attack people for not believing them. Ring a bell?

AD


AD, the same things you are attacking Miro with you can also attack auto-rx. I got an e-mail from a former arx user who used the product and it did not stop his oil leak, he tried to get his money back and he was not successfull, he ended up using some HM Oil and it stopped his leak.

I do not think it is pointless bringing auto-rx into this thread, we already have Synlube here, this fighting with Miro and Synlube is getting real old, how many people are going to buy his expensive oil, very few people.

Yet we have people with dirty engines and I think they need to here everything about auto-rx just like they need to here everything about Synlube, have we seen any documented proof of an engine failure from someone using Synlube, we sure have seen pics of valvetrains where auto-rx did nothing.

It seems you hate a few things about someone spewing false information then attacking people for not believing them, that is auto-rx.

You have to realize the average arx customer finds out his engine is leaking, blowing smoke, burning oil, or it is just plain dirty, they are in a desperate situation and they fall prey to auto-rx's sales tactics.

If you think the arx owner has some class then why not use the product and when you get no results and you ask for your money back and do not get it, then you can come back and tell us how much class the arx owner really has.

Big Bear


Someojne on BOB the OIL GUY asked about SAE 5W-20 oil just a simple question and that resulted in 4 pages of SynLube bashing, the poor guy did not even now that SynLube existed !!!

But now he has just ordered SynKit for his Accord V-6.

His reasoning if people hate something so badly, they must be affraid of something, like having the oil they now use becoming totally obsolete.

So keep it up it actually does sell SynLube !!!

Ah Miro a fool and his money, that is if there is even any truth to your story.


AD, he is trying to upset you and get more people to post in this thread, this is Miro's way of getting some publicity, of course he is doing it the wrong way.

ARX may not attack the country, but arx does attack there customers, does Miro attack his customers.
synlube was not brought up by me. This thread should of died after I made my choice.

Had the it been suggested, and it was not, it would of been rejected out of hand. Anyone who has been paying attention would know that.

ARX has nothing whatsoever to do with the oil I chose, or the ones I listed. It wasn't brought by me at first. I only mentioned running an ARX cycle in passing, and Captain Oblivious and Co. went on a nonsensical tear.

because they have no understanding of what "I feel like it." means.

This thread has gone in the direction it has due to the three bozos who have a problem with the fact that no one cares for synlube. Or yugos. And because they're stupid enough to think the oil consumption I have is a problem.

Something not supported by any real world facts.

And now it's gone into dispicable slander against AD and the US Armed Forces. Solely because he is neither a fan of synlube or yugos.

Dunning and Kruger argued in their paper, “When people are incompetent in the strategies they adopt to achieve success and satisfaction, they suffer a dual burden: Not only do they reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the ability to realize it. Instead, like Mr. Wheeler, they are left with the erroneous impression they are doing just fine.”
You could think of the Dunning-Kruger Effect as a psychological version of this physiological problem. If you have, for lack of a better term, damage to your expertise or imperfection in your knowledge or skill, you’re left literally not knowing that you have that damage.
My point is here. I expected you to miss it. When you wrote what you did to ADFD1, you meant to piss him off. Not surprisingly it worked. What purpose does this serve other than to destroy your own credibility. What your peddling and the way your doing it are like a cancer here. It needs to be removed.

Those cheap economy cars never really go away,they just get reincarnated......along with the economy.....

http://tatacars.blogspot.com/2...etition-to-nano.html

"The car is at the center of an industrial rights controversy, since GM have claimed that it is very similar to the Chevrolet Spark/Daewoo Matiz. GM executives have proved that the doors of the Chery car can be mounted on the Chevrolet Spark without modification, and Car and Driver, an automobile magazine, even calls it "a copy". "


Here is a list of cars that are, 'History',including the Yugo. Kinda depressing!

You can add Mercury to the list too!

Ah Miro a fool and his money, that is if there is even any truth to your story.


I got this far catching up from a few days ago.

AD, I read what Miro said. I took it as being a history lesson, or facts. I have no idea if it is true or not. If true, well, there you have it. I did not get the impression that he was insulting you or the US military. I have the greatest respect for you men and women, and our men and women in our military, too.

We lost another soldier yesterday. I don't know if you people down there are aware, but our "heroes" are returned to Canada in a military aircraft that lands in Trenton, Ontario, a military air base. The body is transported by hearse in a procession of many cars and police escort to the morgue in Toronto for autopsy, which is about 200 miles along the 401 highway. This major highway runs east and west from Detroit to the Quebec border, and has been re-named, "The Highway of Heroes." EVERY bridge along the route is cleared of traffic by the OPP, our provincial police force, like your State police. The progress of the procession is broadcast on radio stations and television, so people know approximately when the procession will pass under a particular bridge in their area. The family of the fallen hero is present in one or more of the vehicles. These bridge tops gradually fill up with individuals, police vehicles, fire trucks from the nearby local towns. Most people have Canadian flags and the firefighters stand on the roofs of their trucks holding our a flag and saluting as the procession passes underneath. Ambulances with personnel are also present to pay their respects. Dozens and dozens of bridges along the 200 mile route are filled with people. People cheer, wave, salute, cry, etc. Police, firefighters, military personnel salute as the large procession of vehicles pass beneath them. I have been fortunate to observe a couples of these events. The police clear traffic from in front of the procession, and do not allow cars to enter the highway until the procession has passed. It's a very moving and personal experience that the common person can participate. This showing of love and respect happens spontaneously with every Hero who is being repatriated. This young man was Hero number 151. Canadians are very proud of our military people.
inHaliburton- I have no problems with you at all, Miro OTOH is a FOOL and has proven it many times over.

I have many Canadian friends, all heros in my book. A fine bunch of people that I'm proud to know and serve with.

My point is because of my sig line a FOOL goes off on a tangent. His so called history lesson has nothing at all to do in an oil forum, but when a person is sick and desperate all bets are off. It is not helping his sales, even though he might think it is.

No one, except you three, have a problem with it. Any of it.

Seperately, each of them have a wealth of experience you can't hope to match.

So, have at it, attack all you want. Whatever helps your collective inferiority complex, but you have neither the experience to bear listening to, or even a coherent position to come from. All you have is attacks. Poor ones at that.

My last post in this thread. Hopefully.


Hey Trajan, you were whining about being attacked recently. You aren't very swift.

You are upset because you bought that used smoker from a Beamership or from a fellow Yuppie. No joy there.

Ya, sure, you re using ARX just because you want to. Wink
inHaliburton- I honestly believe you don't think a BMW using a qt of oil in 6K miles is a smoker/oil burner do you? I also believe deep down you know that Sinlube is a hoax. I mean after all that address, location, Top Secret location BS that was posted months back. I believe you are better than that, I really do man! No hard feelings I hope, just a gut feeling I have about you. I just think you like to bust'em that's all! Smile If so I'm cool with that. Trajan's ride if a far cry from a Yugo clunker POS.

NATO did the world a huge favor when they bombed the factory.

Let's get something straight once and for all,......with the facts,as usual from me,a synlube user.............

The only person sitting in a hole......is Trajan,along with his BMW engine that is losing compression and in need of an overhaul!

Trajan never gave a rebuttal when I said his car is losing compression and power based on his mileage and the track record of this engine,so he knows it's true.

These engines are known to burn oil and need an overhaul around 100K+.........using the so-called-approved-oil,which Trajan claims to have used.

TOO BAD HE USED AN INFERIOR OIL ALL THAT TIME AND BLEW HIS CHANCES OF EXCEEDING 200K BEFORE AN OVERHAUL,OR EVEN MUCH LONGER!

APPROVED OIL YOU SAY................BY WHAT REASON!!
Last edited by captainkirk
This drama-queen cat fight isn't even remotely interesting anymore and I'm not sure if it was ever informative.

Use a fighting-grade oil & change every 3 months or use a high-quality syn (no PIB, no GrpIII, no plasticizer) and extend your drain based on hard data of some sort, or fall somewhere in between. It may all come down to how you drive your vehicle. Maybe there's not a one-size-fits-all solution? Maybe the path you choose is all a matter of personal and/or lifestyle preference and doesn't really say much about your moral or intellectual character?

Maybe any of those approaches, taken thoroughly & responsibly, will allow your engine to outlast the rest of your chassis?

Henry Ford used to send engineers to the junkyards buy & tear apart old Fords to see which parts were still in good shape. Then FoMoCo would design a less robust version for the next iteration. He didn't see the point of throwing quality away. I don't get the obsession with making sure the engine is pristine when the rest of the rusting hulk is towed to the junkyard.

If this is the most important thing you guys have to argue about, I'd trade problems with any of you straight up.

I have total respect for US Navy people I know at Point Mugu, CA even those that do not use SynLube in their cars (well make it minivans and SUV) as well as the few that actually fly out of AVIANO AB, and while the planes are from US Navy, they fly under NATO banners and most are not US Citizens while at the same time they drive MUSTANGs with SynLube in them.

It is people like you that I am worried about, and opinions like yours that make ordinary people in other parts of the world hate Americans to DEATH.

I can tell you that no one anywhere hates CANADIANS yet for practical purposes people elsewhere do not consider that there is any difference between USA and CANADA in economics and lifestyle.

But then CANADA does not have "prison" in CUBA for "udesirables".

So sometimes the truth you are defending is a big lie, that however does not make you authority on YUGO, SynLube or anything else you report as a fact while indead it is "hearsay".

Why are you so insecure ?

If you not like YUGO, that is fine with me, after all there are 47 other brands you can not like as well ad still be able to buy a car or not buy a car that other people apparently do not like as well.

You can put some personal data into it, like I do not know how to shift maual transmission so I do not like it, or it weights less than a ton so I am affraid to be in it, or what ever.

But certainly there are also FORD people that think DODGE to be garbage, and CHEVY people that hate FORD people (they even say so on their bumper stickers), and SUV and F-150 drivers that hate people in PRIUS and so on.

That only shows the Idiotical American mind set, which explains why over 4 billion people in the world have nothing nice to say about USA.

But since it is only matter of 3 to 4 years before China will be #1 in the World in EVERYTHING - you better start to be nice to the majority in the World, as by Democatic process alone you have already lost the cause....

None of this is meant to attack you, all just statements of facts.

Now send me ONE FACT that can in court of law prove beyond any doubt that YUGO is a GARBAGE !!!

Most (not all) military personnel I know have certain level of diplomacy and respect for others (even their enemies - they do not shoot them into their back for example) - someting you seem to be lacking - or is that a result of post what ever stress ?



You worry about me Miro? Get real, top secret location for Synlube, secure US Gov't location in the middle of the desert, no business license, the company is a hoax, that came out early on. Get real FOOL! You need medical care, in the mental health area.

Now you're calling Americans idiots? Get real w/o us you'd have ZERO customers instead of the maybe 10 you have now. Better be nice as will come around and bite you in the ass. FOOL!

I respect people, love this country. Guess what: it is liars, cheats, thieves like you I have no respect for, as do most in the Military. Who by the way you showed no respect for in one of your stupid rants. You're losing points big time with us trust me.

Again if you don't like it here in the US leave. Insecure? I have the green light to tell it like I see it, I made sure of that. The insecure person is you, who hates this country but doesn't have the balls to leave.

AD
It is not the place of the courts to declare a product garbage, The marketplace determined Yugos are garbage a decade ago or so.

I think this is what he meant to say: "Now send me ONE FACT that can in court of law prove beyond any doubt that YUGO is not a GARBAGE !!!


Synth oil is overkill for many apps. No reason to use it if your engine is not spec'd for it.

Good dino/synth oil, along with a reasonable OCI, along with the use of a good filter, and routine maintainenece, goes a long way towards sludge prevention. And a good engine design doesn't hurt either.

Isn't the oil's fault if you run extended drains. Or if you run the wrong viscosity. Or an obsolete spec.

Isn't the oil's fault if you don't fix those leaking head/intake maniflod gaskets. Or never check your PCV.

It isn't the oil's fault if you fail to check the dipstick.

It's the fault of the cheap nut who owns it.

I am not up to speed on BMW's tech, but I take it that VANOS is a variable valve timing setup?

IMHO, if a vehicle uses 1 qt. oil per 6K miles, that is pretty good. My Titan uses about 1/2 qt at about 2500. No leaks, no smoke, but it does see some heavy work. All engines use oil, just some more than others. It will get past the ring gaps, seal seepage, PCV, etc. I have heard that a vehicle that uses 1 qt or more per 1K miles is a "smoker". Here in FL there are no state mandated inspections, and I see some "mosquito foggers" that stop at gas stations an probably say "fill the oil and check the gas" Eek

DaVe.
Seems at leat 3 of us agree using a qt of oil in 6K miles is no big deal, a qt in 4000 miles would be no big deal either. Try taking a new car in for warranty work and tell the service writer you used a qt of oil in 4000 miles and see what he tells you. They will do nothing unless they see an oil leak.

Imgaine what a Yugo dealer would have said back in the day? LOL

Yep, variable valve timing. Then we have the low tension rings that BLK pointed out. And the oil spray jets for the piston crowns.

"Mosquito fogger" Big Grin

My oil light goes yellow when you shut the motor off if it needs oil. The level on the stick was about 1/2 way between the min and max when I checked it the next day.

The engine alone is worth about 15 Yugos. And I will not take a chance with it. Don't like seeing the yellow light. But you never want to see the red one.

Here's the BMW version of a PCV on my car: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/sho...=11_2194&hg=11&fg=15

A lot of people who lease them are the same way. Don't care for the car much.

I was lucky with mine. Two years old and just over 10K miles. Though I did have to buy the manuals.

Around the year 1963 I got out of racing, sold my ride. I needed a cheap ride so bought a 1930 something Chev, had running boards, suicide doors, stick coming right out of the tranny, and a back seat that was like a sofa. Can't remember the year, but it cost me $50. Every Saturday I would drive to Yonge St. and Lawrence Ave. in Toronto to a gas station that sold bulk oil out of large steel drums for .90 per gallon. I went through a gallon of 30 weight oil every week.

To go back to oil:

Considerable work went into prepping the Coyote's oiling system for its 7,000-rpm redline and high-g Mustang home. It begins with thin 5W-20 mineral oil for reduced oil-pump-drive requirements, less internal drag, and quicker cold-start lubrication. Oil capacity was increased to 8 quarts, both to ensure adequate supply at high engine speeds and to increase oil change intervals to 10,000 miles.
