My daughter was having issues with her BMW, so we checked out the website for Pennzoil: 'Oils formulated with PurePlus Technology consistently have lower viscosity at low temperatures (-13 degree Fahrenheit to - 40 degree Fahrenheit), so the engine requires less effort to pump the oil at temperatures Better viscosity control is achieved even under severe oxidative test conditions compared with using other API Group II and III base oils Drive on average an extra 550 miles per year Helps protect engines from loss of power Provides faster low temperature oil flow and protects in extreme heat; Certification: SN" We changed the 10W40 from the Beemer and added the Pennzoil 5W40 and that seemed to do the trick. I believe the oil she was using had a viscosity level that was too high.

Best oil available!
I have a 96 Ford Explorer with 5.0 and over 220k miles, I've always used conventional oil but the past 3 oil changes I switched to this and it's made a world of difference! Motor runs smoother, quieter and when I put a fuel system cleaner in at time of each oil change it feels a lot peppier which I've never noticed with other oils. I used to think the price of full synthetic oils was outrageous but after a few times using it I won't be using anything else in any vehicle I own!
Great Oil, Great Detergents.
Bought a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville with 204k and against my better judgement put a full synthetic high mileage oil in it. The car had some noisy lifters and the cam was disgusting. As anyone should know, a good oil gets "dirty" quick as it is suspending all of the impurities, after my first oil change I noticed my oil was pretty dark and my engine (3800 S2) was running really smooth and there seemed to be a lot less sludge built up around the cam. I would highly recommend this oil for someone looking to make the switch from a conventional or syn. blend.
(pair this with the HPZ filter and you are guaranteed a long lasting oil)
Great for my Accord
I have a 2018 Honda Accord 2.0T Sport. I used Mobil 1 for the first couple oil changes, it ran good. Then I tried The Pennzoil Platinum specifically formulated for modern turbocharged engines and it ran great. I noticed a difference in how quiet and smooth the engine sounds with the Pennzoil especially on cold start ups. And the proformance has never been better. I am very pleased and satisfied with the product.
Have always used Pennzoil!
I have used Pennzoil in both my 2002 Buick Century and 2012 Civic sedan, and have always been satisfied. Always pair it with a Napa Gold oil filter and it's the best combination since PB&J. The civic currently has 109,000 miles on the odometer. Will be using Pennzoil Platinum 0W-20 with Napa Gold Oil filter (Part # 7356) as always. This will be my 10th oil change come up. Always pick Pennzoil because of its durability, capability, reliability, and robust composition.
