.... The Power Of Mobil 1 Extended Performance After 12k miles oil change by dru23(m): 7:53pm On Jul 19, 2019
This is how my engine looks using Mobil 1 Extended Performance oil .. Keep in mind this is my uber Elantra 08 car ,and my oil change interval is every 12k miles for the past two years plus ..
The car was service a month ago with a new uber driver. The driver was doing oil check and notice that oil was shorten. So we decided to have my mechanic take a good look at it. So the engine was open up .. And behold the engine looks well protected and Mobil 1 has been doing a great job protecting the engine from sludge and wear and tear .. This is why I will continue using Extended Performace and do oil change every 12k miles .....


Ps.. The third picture is little plastic seal type.. It was broken and it was the cause of the oil shorten. For now it was replace with gum . Pending we get the parts for it next week..

From what u said, u said the oil was shortened, so did u decide to add more oil to top it up or u decided to do an oil change again or what was done to remedy the situation since u found out oil was shortened

There was no need to top any oil ..base on the fact that the car was just service with Mobil 1 extended performace oil .. The car was shorten oil not up to 2k miles after servicing... And from experience the other cars short oil at about 5k to 7k miles. Than I top it and the car is good till 12k miles before oil change.
So I knew something was very wrong.. I ask my mechanic to open up the engine. It was discovered one of the seal was broken.. So my mechanic use some type of gum to cover up the seal. So next week,will get the proper parts to replace it..

Picture below is the oil level before the engine was open up. Mobil 1 extended performance still protects... Plus with Mobil extended performace I do oil change every 12k miles ... can your engine oil do that?

grin grin grin
So you think it's because of mobil 1
Any engine oil at that level will still protect.. Even groundnut oil self..

Due to oil leakage from oil filter O-ring.. I had engine oil level at the tip of the dipstick. grin grin
engine was till running fine and it was not mobil 1..

At that level you still had atleast 2 qts of engine oil left

Well I will never do 12k miles on any oil(except my car manufacturer advices)... I don't care if the oil comes from Mars grin grin grin

I will always take engine manufacturer's advice over oil marketer/manufacturer's sales pitch

My brother I like anything that saves me money.. The reason why I like Mobil 1 oil , especially Extended Performance oil. I don't have to worry about changing oil up and down. With good oil filter that is good for 15k miles interval. I do my oil change every 12k miles .. Keep in mind my cars are constantly running on uber.. Constant stop and go ,braking etc .. These cars on uber are constantly running up and down .. So you need good quality oil to keep your engine running smooth.. Mobil 1 extended performace does the job well.. And it saves me trip from the mechanic.. Am trying to avoid been the mechanic best friend.. It can be an expensive relationship
