    Overfilled my oil and got froth. Completely flush? Just drain excess?

    Thanks for the post Spectre. I'll dig into the links you posted and look for good dino or blend choice. What ever I decided on, I'll fill slightly-too-high, take the same 5min. drive, and then bleed off the overfill and see what it looks like. Will probably have to wait for spring though, as...

    Wow, I got to say a recommendation for anything Valvoline surprises me. TID - what is this? I'm not questioning your Spectre, but I'm curious what your source(s) are for inspection data or is it simply 'original research' i.e. your experience as a mechanic?

    Ouch; not the news, but the way you've left me hanging! ;) What do you recommend for non-synthetic? If nobody makes a good non-synthetic that can be had on this side of the pond, any soild synthetic blend recommendations?

    Overfilled my oil and got froth. Completely flush? Just drain excess?

    I wish the story ended there... Someone pointed out to me how nasty that overfill stuff looks. I doubt checked the stuff I discarded and verified I had trashed only rubbish, no mix up, so I can only concluded that the place I got the oil from had junk mixed in with new. No wonder the sale was...

    Overfilled my oil and got froth. Completely flush? Just drain excess?

    I just took the oil filter off and lost a bit of oil. I let it sit for a while. That's when I snapped this photo. I thought I was looking about bubbly oil, but when I looked at the photo, which provided a much better view, I think I was actually looking at metal. I just put the oil filter...

    Overfilled my oil and got froth. Completely flush? Just drain excess?

    I overfilled the oil on my 4th gen Maxima. Took a 5min. drive. Got froth. Drain it all out and replace, or just drain the excess (which I can more or less do by only taking off the oil filter)? Full story: So I changed my oil the other day, a task which I'm new to. For reasons I won't elaborate...

    Anyone here able to identify these cars?

    Didn't notice it on the windscreen. That's one sweet car. Maybe someday someone will make a proper kit for it, like parallels with lambos.

    From the movie TopGun, "Top Gun Anthem" iirc. Very well know in the airplane community, or at least armchair pilots. An obvious choice for FG's airplane segment.

    [10x01] October 7th, 2007

    A real shame as the scenery just doesn't shine through at such a low res. :( Overall I liked the episode; certainly a better tenor for this season than last season, and I like what I read in Wilman blog. I would have enjoyed this ep. much more though if James had picked a car he enjoyed as imho...
