The Truth About Royal Purple Engine Oil for Your Car


Rev up your engines,
coney says, how do you feel about royal purple oil and long does it need to be changed like
5,000 miles, ok royal purple oil an excellent oil, I have friends who race cars, seriously
on race car tracks, and the use royal purple oil they swear by it, it’s good oil and I’ve
used it, it is an excellent oil, now it’s expensive it’s a very expensive oil there’s
no arguing that, now if you do normal driving you can change it every 8-10,000 miles, the
race car guys change it after every race so it doesn’t really matter, but it is an excellent
oil, if you don’t mind paying that price it’s a good oil, but on the other hand, you could
get that Amazon full synthetic oil on Amazon for half the price and it lasts just as long,
and it work quite well, so it’s your choice there’s nothing wrong with the oil,
waffle counsel says scotty is it harmful to keep synthetic oil in your engine after 6
months if it only has 2,500 miles of use and it’s rated for 7,500 miles, no it doesn’t
hurt anything at all, most of the good synthetics even say you can change your oil once a year
or every 10,000 miles, I believe in changing it every 7,500 miles but once a year is totally
fine if your driving that little bit the synthetic oil isn’t going to be hurt, it is a much purer
oil and it lasts longer and flows better when it’s cold outside, it protects better at higher
temperatures so no you can do that, there’s nothing wrong with doing that,
one broadcast, scotty I got a gm 3400 v6, when I start it up warm sometimes it takes
longer to crank than if I start it up cold what could it be, well that’s a very common
problem with an older vehicle, when you start a car cold, cold engines need extra fuel,
so let’s say you have fuel injectors that are old and maybe they drip a little too much
fuel into the engine, a cold engine loves it, ahh more fuel I’ll start right up, a warm
engine only needs a little bit of fuel to run, and if those injectors are dripping,
when you start up a warm engine that actually floods the engine out, now an easy way to
tell that is, when you do finally get it started warm, rev it up and look out the tailpipe
in the back, if you see blackish smoke coming out, that’s exactly what’s happening, it’s
flooding it out, it’s a typical thing that happens with those things as they age, now
if it does start and it doesn’t get any black smoke out of the back, that means you’re not
getting any fuel, and in that case it could be the fuel pump starting to go out and you
could pressure test that, viral says scotty, as I speed up my car makes a winning noise
and when I up shift it sounds like something is winding down, could it be my transmission
fluid is low, car grinds in second when it’s cold -30C, it’s grinding so obviously it has
some kind of transmission problem, I would check the fluid, probably change the fluid
and filter in it and then pray, cuz most of the time when they grind they have a serious
problem inside, and the transmission is starting to wear out, they way things are these days,
automatic transmissions are really complex, very few guys know how to rebuild the correctly,
and when they start grinding and clunking and making noises internally, now you want
to make sure it’s the transmission making the noise, so I’ve got a video, finding the
source of car noises, just type that in google, finding the source of car noises scotty, type
that in you’ll see the video and you can do that to pinpoint the sound for sure, you always
want to pinpoint a sound, something wrong haha that’s a old joke, I got an 84 fiero
and need help finding reproduction parts, I want to go this route because I feel the
materials will be better quality any advise, there’s a site and it’s called the fiero store,
yes the fiero store.com just go there, it’s all they sell, talk to people there you can
learn all kinds of stuff about it, those are interesting cars you know they had the engine
in the back, but they did have the radiator in the front, it’s a wedge shape so the radiator
had to be at an angle and man if those radiator fans ever break under the hood, the engines
overheat and blew up, they had lots of problems with that, so make sure your cooling fans
work, on a car like that myself, I would put a toggle switch on it, whenever I was running
the car I would turn the toggle switch on to turn those fans on so it never overheated,
I mean you don’t have to do that in the winter when it’s cold but in the summer,
franky says scotty I’m thinking about investing in lithium mine companies what do you think,
well if you pick the right one, lithium you know they use it in lithium batteries, they
use it in a lot of stuff, lithium itself you know I mean they even use that stuff as an
antipsychotic drug, there’s all kinds of things it’s used for, you got to invest in the right
company though, it’s like anything else, it’s just like now, marijuana is legal in Canada,
some states it’s legal, and everybody is jumping on the marijuana bandwagon and their investing
in companies, who knows if any of those companies are actually going to make a profit, so if
you are going to invest in lithium companies, my advise is invest in one that’s got a track
history that’ been out for a while that knows what their doing, don’t just jump on the bandwagon
and say, oh here’s a new company oh those new companies a lot of them are fly by night,
they take your money their gone and you never see it again, I know I’ve lost money on the
stock market so take my advice and stay with a regular company that’s been doing it a while,
so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember to ring
that bell!

  11. chas sisom says:

    I always question how someone can make an evaluation of motor oil unless someone used it exclusively for at least 100K and then did a tear down to measure tolerances. Other than that, don't tell me such and such oil is bad, good or great.

  37. Tony Davila says:

    How long do you guys in the comments leave your full synth oil in for? I usually wait 5,000 miles. Everything else seems to excessive, one of my customers 2013 328i with the f22 4 cyl, after you reset the oil life it starts a 12,000mi countdown. That seems to excessive to me doesn’t it? First oil change I did was full of bearing material, don’t know how long it was actually in their for but he uses the recommended castrol gpx full synth

    Full synthetic oils have better detergents in them which take longer to break down which is why you can go longer between oil changes.

    Waste of money. Use VR1

  61. 1redrubberball says:

    There has been a lot of total baloney written about motor oil and filters and there is no objective truth on the subject. The US Army is the largest motor pool operator on earth. They bought and use more oil & filters than anyone else. They used to have a "military qualification number" on oil that met their standards and they freely used it, regardless of manufacturer, sometimes with 2 or more products in the crankcase simultaneously. They had no problems. I have used a number of good manufacturers oil over 5 decades but I don't believe in running any oil beyond about 7500 miles. I like oil filters from WIX, PUROLATOR, BOSCH. I've never had any issues with internal engine dynamics and oil.

  62. Rollina Joint says:

    Indeed the purple oil is
    A fine oil as are many others. People debate
    oils, all oils are great.
    Detergent oils are important. I have no
    perferance myself. Those that do are welcome to what makes them feel warm
    and fuzzy. The thing with the purple stuff is
    that it goes in looking dirty. Fine oil nuf said
