While I agree that Mobile1 is the best synthetic, it is a complete waste of your money to buy the synthetic if you're going to change the oil every 5k miles, unless you are driving in the most extreme conditions (Mojave desert, maybe?). Dino oil will go 5k miles before needing to be replaced in most driving conditions. With Mobile1, or any decent synthetic, you can easily go 7500+ miles. I actually go 15k between oil changes in my car with Mobile1, just checking levels periodically to see if I need a top-off (never have, but going that long was scary at fist because I grew up with the 3k mile mantra). Anyway, if you're going to spend your money on the synthetic, get your dollars worth out of it and go 15,000 miles between oil changes.

I remember reading a study performed by Mobile back when they first came out with full synthetic, they took a brand new engine, filled it with Mobile1 and ran it to the equivalent of 150,000 miles without ever changing the oil. There was no significant wear to the engine parts after the 150,000 miles. Now, this was a controlled experiment produced by the people who wanted to sell you the oil, so I would by no means suggest going 150,000 miles on one oil change, but even in the most perfect conditions, 150,000 miles is impressive.

Without actually hearing the noise it is difficult to pinpoint this issue. It may have been a shift solenoid "spazm" if you will. Or a number of other things. I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it becomes a frequent occurrence, or the check eng. lamp comes on or something. Has it had any shifting problems or other symptoms??

Oil type for 2006 dodge grand caravan

New cars and truck manufactures recomend differend types of grades of oil when the engine is new. What they don't tell you when the engine receives 30,000 miles on it the grade of oil can be changed for better lubrication. Use 10w30 for normal use upon changing oil.

How to remove the oil pan on a 2004 dodge ram 2500 diesel

What motor is in it? Mostly have to take all the oil pan bolts out, undo the motor mounts and raise the motor up enough for the oil pan to clear the cross member. make sure you don't have too much in the way when you raise the motor, as you may break something.

Change your tranny oil, then change it again after a few weeks.

Those trannys are weak, and they need TLC. I changed my tranny fluid with every other oil change and I got 187,000 out of my original before it gave it up.

If your is dead, I would contact Honda; there is a service bulletin about their crappy trannys. They may help.
