Yeah, it is a little similar to a 4x4 truck but not as loud or as "crude", just not as quiet as the car used to be. I did get new tires a few months ago. My steering wheel has always been canted a...

I was thinking it could be something like that, I will get under my car again and take a look and maybe tighten the bolts where the exhaust manifold is to see if that makes any difference.

From what I read most Mobil 1 synthetics are now Group 3's after the lawsuit, the only retail group 4 I heard of was the European Formula Mobil 1 OW 40 but I have read some say that is not even Group...

I am not sure if they even specify if it needs to be a GF-4, GF-3, or GF-5 for a GS? I am pretty sure Lexus dealerships use Mobil 1 5W 30 for the GS when you ask for a synthetic which is now a Group...

German Castrol 0W 30 is a GF-4 synthetic. I think it is the only store available Castrol synthetic that is Group 4, the rest are GF-3 from my understanding.

I priced it a few weeks ago and it was around $75 for 6 quarts:eek2: once you included shipping. That is way too much to pay just for oil for 1 oil change even if it is good oil so I decided to go...

I did not see the weights of the oil listed in that test but think they were all 5W30 correct? If they were all 5W30 then It may not be the fairest test. Mobil 1 5W 30 and Castrol 5W 30 are Group...

90K, but since they switched to Kevlar reinforced belts around 2001 you should be able to go over that by a bit with no worries.
