AZgl1800 I will pay attention to the comment on K&N filters and will be switching to Honda. Do you actually reuse the Honda filter over and over with oil changes?

If it's a low-mileage oil change just because it's "time", it's not necessary to change filter, too. Just leave it 'til next time. If changing oil due to miles, best to spin on a new filter, too.

what he said.

My son's pickup is a diesel. He changes the oil filter about twice in between actual oil changes. But, his oil changes are extended compared to our motorcycles. He also uses only pure synthetics...

my car is now going on 18 months since the last oil change,
  • Mobil-1 0w20
  • Current miles 99,060
  • last change: 88,603 on 1/23/2018
so, about 11,000 miles on the oil.

last oil sample sent to Blackstone Labs with 16,000 miles on oil, said that "all is good, if I want to run 16,000 again, it will be fine". that particular oil run was on Valvoline 0w20 pure synthetic.

I believe there is some confusion here, AZ is talking about K&N air filters, not oil filters. I totally agree with him on the air filter.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

I went back and edited my post, to make it ultra clear, that K&N air filters are junk IMO, and at the very least, they have the worst record in the industry for Filtration Efficiency.


and here is a review from a Mechanical Engineer, he puts K&N dead last, and with Flow Rate is just barely a slight bit better than the OEM air filters.

What oil are you using and when was it last changed? (Make sure it has no "friction modifiers)

Same question for the oil filter, , , ,


Most folks hear a "ticking" if a valve/lifter gets gummed up so I might consider throwing about 4-6 oz. of seafoam in the OIL, , then ride it for 350-400 miles and change the oil. See if the oil is dark black, , , or slightly brown. Black indicates a lot of sludge/crud in the crankcase. Slightly brown indicates a lesser amount of sludge/crud. If its Black or slightly brown, fill up with new oil, and another 4-6 oz. of seafoam in the oil, leave the oil filter unchanged this time. Another 350-400 miles and do it all again, , until the oil removed is a "golden amber" color. Your "ticking" should pretty much be gone after the first "seafoam" treatment, but continue until you get the majority of the sludge out. Once you see the oil coming out is golden amber, NEW OIL AGAIN, NEW OIL FILTER, but NO seafoam this time. It'll be good to go for 3k-5k without an oil change and your "ticking" will be a thing of the past. (crossing my fingers for ya)
I did the Seafoam treatment and am ready for the second oil change. I am pleased to report that valve ticking is gone even on startup which was always present before. Many thanks for the advice given.
