I change the oil and oil filter every 5000 miles in my SUV that is over 130,000 miles. This is a quality oil that is not too high priced. Advance Auto gave me a discount for buying this particular oil and a particular brand of oil filter which is anonymous together for a discounted price. Also, I sent for a free NFL cap which was part of the offer.

The translucent indicator line fails to show the amount of oil remaining in the bottle. Conversely, another manufacturer's 5 quart bottles work fine in this regard because you can actually see the oil remaining in the bottle because their indicator lines are transparent. Castrol's indicator line is useless,

I had to guesstimate then dump the remainder of the bottle into pyrex measuring cups to make sure of the amount I used and needed yet to use. This was a total pain to do and as such I won't ever buy Castrol again.

                      I had bought a Suburban that hasnt run in a few years and there was smudge in the oil and it was black. I had done one treatment of Castrol GTX for it with the truck having 179k on it and it ran so much better! And there is barely any more junk in the engine, one more oil change and this baby is all better! Im a chevy girl and I know that this is the brand I trust always!

                          Happy to assist you with your question Roger! The oil linked is synthetic blend oil. What is recommended for your 2000 MBenz S430 is Full Synthetic Oil. All of the following weights of oil are compatible 0W-30, 5W-30, 0W-40, 5W-40 or 5W-50, depending on the temperature where you live. The capacity will be 8.5 quarts.

                          Hi Cindy! Castrol GTX High Mileage is a part synthetic motor oil. It would not replace a synthetic oil. In order to better assist you, please provide us with the details of your application (including the year, make and model of the vehicle) and I will be happy to provide you with the name of a Castrol product that can be used if available.

                          Yes, you can replace the old conventional oil with the Castrol Synthetic oil. You can do that without flushing and the engine will not face any issue/damage. I would also recommend the Castrol High Mileage Automatic Transmission Fluid (1 qt.) - Part No. 06812 over the Castrol GTX 5W-30 High Mileage Motor Oil (5 Plus Quarts Jug) - Part No. 03564 for your 2003 Toyota Camry.
