Warmed up enough this weekend to change back to Mobil1 (http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=23612069).

Starts up with no noticeable lag in oil pressure and just a millisecond of rod knock - barely detectable.

Wonder how much damage I did with that Quaker State crap in my truck all week

Thanks for the insight

If it's not knocking now, you should be OK.

Mike,

I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it, since the motor is high-mileage anyway. There's a neighbor who's been driving one with what sounds like no rod bearing left for years. Every time he comes up the street I expect it to throw the rod through the block, but it keeps on chugging.
