AC-Delco Full-Synthetic Motor Oil 5W-30 (dexos1) $3.99

Recommended Posts


They filled the back order at that price, it's coming this week. :D

The website still says:

This item is currently on backorder with no eta date from the manufacturer. You may place an order for this item on line or call 1-800-345-4545 and speak with one of our technical sales representatives to discuss your best options!
(Option 2 for sales, then option 2 for a technical sales rep)

They must be only filling the backorders and at that price, I'm sure they sold a bunch.

I'm still not  sure about using full synthetic oils. I've heard they are harder on Gaskets,Seals, O rings. Is that just a myth or what?o.O

I've never heard that really and the big difference is that synthetic oil doesn't break down as fast and offers additives that are friction modifiers. When oil breaks down and loses it's ability to properly lubricate, you get more friction which takes a toll on internal engine parts with wear and gumming up the engine, which is why it's important to regularly change oil. Repair shops used to (may still today) offer oil flushes to clean a gummed up engine. Today, clearances are much smaller and tighter and in some cases you have to use synthetic oil. I would say synthetic on newer cars more than older makes a difference and could extend the life of an engine. Once oil breaks down, turns black, no good.

Looks like its off of backorder and I have yet to find this for a better price! I had ordered enough for free shipping with $100 order.

I just ordered this again and its still 3.99 a quart. I ordered enough to get free shipping and used code SAVE30 for another $10 off. Came out to like $3.63 a quart after tax and free shipping. Can't beat that!

      Hi there, I have converted T&C 2005 (those with ramps for wheelchair) and the drive cable that connects the motor of the sliding door to the gear that actually moves the door broke. The problem is that this cable is longer than the original due to the conversion (it's 2 feet long ish) and I'm having a hard time finding the replacement part. VMI dealer has but doesn't sell the part and is charging me 10% of the value of the car to replace it....and I can do it, so looking for advice or ideas where I can find it. Tks!!!

      AmazonBasics High Mileage Motor Oil - Synthetic Blend
      AmazonBasics high-mileage synthetic-blend motor oil offers an enhanced level of protection for engines over 75,000 miles. Its synthetic blend combines conventional oil with synthetic for cost efficiency with some of the benefits of a full synthetic. An important part of routine maintenance, the motor oil works well for anything from topping off levels to complete oil changes. Whether it’s a beloved older vehicle or one with an uncertain maintenance history, help protect its engine with AmazonBasics high-mileage, synthetic-blend motor oil.
      API SN and ILSAC GF-5 approved, AmazonBasics high-mileage motor oil offers exceptional quality and convenience.
      Note: Always follow vehicle manual recommendations.
      Friction-Reducing Formula
      AmazonBasics high-mileage motor oil creates a protective coating that helps reduce wear on engine components. By minimizing friction from in-contact moving engine parts (which wastes otherwise useful power), the motor oil helps enhance fuel economy and promotes better power output and performance.
      Reliable Protection
      The high-mileage motor oil helps keep the engine clean by minimizing unwanted build-up that can cause damaging rust and corrosion. The motor oil offers a resistance to viscosity and thermal breakdown, plus it helps fight volatility burn-off, which can reduce engine deposits and exhaust emissions.
      Available Viscosity Grades
      The motor oil’s grade, as established by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), reflects its viscosity characteristics. The first number(s)—5W and 10W—indicate cold-temperature performance (W for winter), while the end numbers—20, 30, and 40—indicate high-temperature performance (at 100 degrees C).
      Depending on driving conditions and needs, choose from the following AmazonBasics high-mileage synthetic-blend motor oil grades (shown in chart below; each sold separately):

    • OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts for Your Car: How to Choose
      When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.

      Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.

      You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.

      Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.

    • Replacement Intervals For Oil And Air Filters In Today’s Vehicles
      The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media.

      Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life.

      Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase.

    • Oil Filters And Air Filters: Important Maintenance Parts
      Air filters, cabin air filters, oil filters and (sometimes) fuel and transmission filters are important maintenance parts that typically are replaced according to a time and/or mileage schedule. A vehicle’s service schedule recommendations can be found in the owner’s manual or in a separate brochure. Unfortunately, many motorists never read – or totally ignore – the recommendations.

      Factory service schedules are designed to prolong the life of the engine, transmission and cooling system, to reduce premature wear and breakdowns, but also to minimize maintenance costs while the vehicle is still under warranty. That’s why factory oil change recommendations have been stretched to 7,500 to 10,000 miles or more on many late-model vehicles. Most late-model cars and light trucks no longer have recommended change intervals for transmission fluid and filters, or for fuel filters. These so-called “lifetime” fluids and filters are supposed to last a long time – but they won’t last forever. Experience has shown that “lifetime” filters and fluids don’t live up to the hype.

      Fuel filters always should be replaced when a fuel pump is replaced (unless the filter is part of the fuel pump module assembly). Likewise, transmission filters should be replaced if a customer is changing the fluid in their transmission.

      Last Line of Defense Against Contaminants

      Filters are the first line of defense against contaminants. Air filters keep dirt and abrasive particles out of the engine. A good-quality air filter will trap about 98 percent or more of the particles that can cause trouble inside an engine. As the filter media becomes saturated with dirt, it’s efficiency actually increases. But, as the filter becomes clogged with more and more dirt, it also becomes more restrictive to airflow. The greater the pressure drop across the filter, the more it hurts performance and fuel economy.
