    Dude!!! You have no idea of the heck I've went through with my truck. First, I had to put ball joints in it, which were a pain in the butt because I had to take a torch and cut all the bolts off of the ball joints. And then I had to put new u-joints in the front axles. The stupid truck is eating wheel bearings every 5,000 miles now lol Needless to say, I was dumping to much $$ into it and I had to part with the truck. The motor KILLED me in that thing. If it was a 5.0 like your truck, then I would have never parted with it. I'm on the lookout for another truck now, and its gonna be a V-8 this time. lol I'm just not sure if I'm gonna buy a Chevy or Ford or what. lol

    I haven't really heard anything about the Royal Purple oil. When they advertised it, it said something about lasting longer than regular oil, more horsepower, and increased gas mileage. I can believe that it lasts longer than the regular oil, but I don't believe the it increases hp and mpg lol Just change your oil with good quality oil and put a quart of Lucas Oil stabilizer in it, and you should be fine. Or, you could wait untill your a quart low with the oil thats in it right now, and add a quart of Lucas Oil Stabilizer. If it were me, I'd drain the Mobile 1 synthetic out of it. After that mishap with me putting Mobile Clean 5000 oil in my truck, I go blind and start cussing when I see a quart of Mobile oil laying around lol

    Oh yea, I've heard after you put synthetic oil in a motor, then it'll KILL it if you change back to regular oil (I'm not sure though). Next oil change, put a quart of Lucas Oil Stabilizer in it, along with Castrol or Pennzoil synthetic oil. See if that helps anything. Right here is what you'll be looking for

    I put that Mobile Clean 5000 oil in my truck, and it sounded like the lifters were gonna shoot out of the motor. I changed it to Castrol GTX, and I've not had any problems like that before. If you think your oil is to thin, then wait untill the motor needs a quart of oil, and add a quart of Lucas Oil Stabilizer. That stuff works wonders, and its thick! If your truck is losing oil, and not burning it, then I say it has to be leaking out somewhere. If you have a front seal going bad (I think I remember you posting that in a previous thread, but I'm not sure), then I'd say you also have valve cover gaskets leaking also. Thats VERY common with motors with a little bit of mileage on them, and it's not very hard to replace them either. I have 102,000 miles on my 300 6 cylinder, and my valve cover gasket is starting to seep a little bit of oil out. Now if you have to change a leaky front seal, then THAT'S a job! I'd rather rebuild a whole entire truck before I did that lol
