          Rotella T is perfect oil for the older engines. I have replaced 2 motors in my Jeeps and this oil is made for this kind of engine. The 4.0 and the 4.2 I6 engines are built tough and run for years, as long as you keep the correct oil in them.

            Comments about Shell Rotella T 15W-40 Heavy Duty Motor Oil (1 Gallon):

            I've been using this oil since working as a mechanic in a marina for many years. Rotella 15w-40 was used in all gas and many diesel engines. I found it to be the perfect oil for my Yamaha Vmax. The oil had no friction modifiers that make wet clutches slip.It also has sheer additives for the gear train in a diesel engine. This benifits my trnsmission, as it shares engine oil. This oil is many times better than needed for the hard use of my bike. It see's 10k rpm often and has 46k on it. I've been using Rotella since 12k. Only synthetic could top this in my opinion. And that would be 5w-40 Rotella if I ever switched over.

              I always use this specific product in my 2007 silverado diesel. I have used it in my familys quads and the neighbor used it when building race bikes. I have insisted that the dealership where I had my truck serviced used rotella also.

                  I have used this oil for many years in tractors and my diesel pickups. As I have now sold all diesel pickups due to high fuel prices. I still buy and use this oil in my older gasoline powered pickups due to this oils higher content of additives needed in these older engines. The combined age of these three vehicles is 120 years!

                          I would not recommend 15w-40 motor oil for every day driving on gasoline engines as it too thick and it might not lubricate your engine fast enough causing engine damage faster. I would recommend 10w-40 for higher mileage engines. And if you see some smoke coming out or if your engine getting louder as you go, use 1 quart of "LUCAS OIL TREATMENT". This will help your engine least longer work smoother. Good Luck!

                          This oil is used by many motorcycle owners. It has Jaso Ma rating on back of jug which is for wet clutch.

                          I would stick with oil that is meant for motorcycles.
