TriShield is a unique triple-action technology that attracts, captures and disperses particles that can build up in engines and causes sludge build-up. TriShield stops small particles from becoming big problems, and protects the car you rely on. This innovative technology uses a polymer that contains two chemical hooks that attract and capture both sludge and soot in a single molecule, helping to prevent particles from building up. With TriShield Technology, Castrol has improved the potency and protection that GTX provides.

Product Features:
  • Unique TriShield technology actively protects against particles that build up in car engines with the most advanced sludge-fighting ingredients
  • Castrol GTX uses premium, custom-made additives and is the most advanced conventional oil available
  • Maximum protection against viscosity and thermal breakdown

  • Exceeds API Service SM, SL, SJ and SH; ILSAC GF-4/GF-3/GF-2 for API Certified Gasoline Engine Oils; meets Energy Conserving Standards; GM6094M
  • Exceeds demanding US high-shear and stay-in-grade requirements for viscosity breakdown protection

I switched from the oil in the yellow bottle that starts with the letter P and I tell you I think my truck is running better with this oil in it. It seem to reduce engine noise, feels more smooth. I know I had about 3-4k miles on the last oil change so dont know, either im seeing and hearing things or something changed.

I bought a used Honda Accord with 70K on it. I was initially running Motorcraft 5W-20 synthetic blend because I also had an F-150 that took the same oil. At 100K I pulled the valve cover to do a valve adjustment. Clean as a whistle inside. I had been noticing though that the engine used a small amount of oil, about 1/2 a quart every 1K. I found this is common for the 2.4 Honda engines and the easy fix is switch to 5W-30. This is the point I started using the Castrol GTX.

A little over 25K later I again removed the valve cover to install a new gasket set. I was shocked to see sludge deposits all over the inside of the valve cover. Some more research verified this oil is prone to coking. I will no longer use Castrol GTX. If you like it fine, but DO NOT let it go past 3K without a change. I don't do short trips or dirt roads and figured 5K changes were fine, as they were with the Motorcraft I used previously. Wrong. You have been warned.

  • Q:

    May sound like a dumb Q..but making sure this is engine oil. Also wondering if synthetic is better for my 2005 Chevy Aveo
    Asked on 6/11/2017 by will from NY

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Glad to assist, Will! According to Castrol's lubrication guide recommended for the 2005 Chevrolet Aveo 1.6L 4-cyl is the following:

      Above -20° F: 5W-30
      Below -20° F: 0W-30, 5W-30

      The oil used must meet GM 6094.

      If you are in an area of extreme cold, where the temperature falls below the specified temperature range, use 5W-30 synthetic or 0W-30 meeting Original Equipment specifications. These provide easier starting of the engine at extremely low temperatures.

      GM dexos1 specification was introduced for model year 2011, and is the right choice for any GM engine. The dexos specification supersedes all previous GM engine oil specs and is backwards compatible. This means that oils meeting dexos1® are a perfect choice for all GM gasoline vehicle owners and exceed the needs of older GM vehicles that call for specifications such as GM-LL-A-025, GM 6094 and GM 4718M.

      Using dexos in a GM vehicle ensures that owners are getting the best and latest motor oil performance recommended by GM. What makes dexos better for GM vehicles than the current or older industry standards? While the current industry standard specifications (ILSAC GF-5, API SN) are defined by general performance criteria for motor oil, dexos was designed to distinguish oils that meet the specific needs of GM engine technology. Oils that meet dexos exceed the requirements of the industry standard while also achieving additional GM performance demands and proprietary test requirements. This translates to enhanced wear protection, piston cleanliness and aeration control properties, as well as reduced oil burn-off, consumption and oxidation as compared to an industry standard oil. This makes a GM dexos-certified oil the best option for all GM vehicles.

      Castrol EDGE and GTX Magnatec brands in 0W-20 and 5W-30 grades are approved for dexos1 applications.

      Castrol GTX motor oils do not meet the dexos1 requirement.

  • Q:

    Can 5w30 be used for a 2008 Ford Edge SE?
    Asked on 4/15/2017 by Anthony Bradley

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Glad to assist, Anthony Bradley! According to Castrol's lubrication guide recommended for the 2008' Ford Edge 3.5L 6cyl is the following: For all temperatures the Castrol GTX UltraClean 5W-20 a part synthetic motor oil meeting the Ford specification of M2C930-A or the Castrol Edge 5W-20 a full synthetic motor oil meeting the Ford specification of M2C930-A. The Castrol GTX 5W-30 is not the recommended viscosity and does not meet the Ford specification of M2C930-A, therefore not suitable for use for the application.
