Waiter, have you ever had problems with the Castrol and your intake manifold seals/gaskets? There was a Long-EZ on our field with this issue and he believed that iot was caused by his use of Castrol GTX 20W50.

I've been using Castrol GTX since day one (about 2600 hours).

 

I did have an intake gasket crack and caused a rough running condition (I never would have guessed that such a small crack would have caused such a major problem)

 

However, I never blamed GTX for the crack.
