  1. So i was looking at these dimple magnetic drain plugs since im due for an oil change. Planning on using mobil 1 0w40 as i live in memphis TN, gets fairly hot in the summer but not too cold in the winter (except last winter). I also do a lot of short trips and feel like the 0w40 helps on the start up lubrication. Anyway, i was thinking about adding a magnetic plug but these engines are mostly aluminum arent they? What engine parts are ferrous and wear? Im wondering if there are even enough ferrous parts in the engine to mess with the magnetic drain plug. It's only $30 so it's not a big deal either way....I know it cant hurt anything.
  2. Isnt 0w40 or 5w40 the factory recommended? Im about to do an oil change myself and was going to order some 0w40 mobil 1 on amazon. I do a lot of short trips so i figured the 0w40 would be a good fit for me.
  3. ^ This. Besides, you arent buying a kia. These cars cost more to maintain, it's part of the deal. Why will the PPI be interesting? Either they find something or they dont.
  4. Can anyone help me out with the oil filter location on a 2006 Cayenne Turbo???
