Been using this oil since ZDDP was removed from Castrol GTX

By 

from Apex, nc

Comments about Shell Rotella T5 10W-30 Heavy Duty Synthetic Blend Motor Oil (1 Gallon):

I have been using Rotella products since ZDDP was removed from conventional motor oil somewhere around 2005. The motor in my 1974 Trans Am was rebuilt around 2003 or so. With about 10K miles on it, it ate one of the camshaft lobes. After complaining to the cam manufacturer, I was told that government regulations required manufacturers to remove the ZDDP from conventional motor oil. At the time, I had been running Castrol products. The cam manufacturer recommended I run Rotella T standard or synthetic blend motor oil. I replaced the cam, and switched over to Rotella in all of my cars with flat tappet cams (and my 96 Suburban 454 tow vehicle). I've had no more cam failures.

    Comments about Shell Rotella T5 10W-30 Heavy Duty Synthetic Blend Motor Oil (1 Gallon):

    I purchased a 67 chevy corvair and read that the older hydraulic lifters require and additive to the oil that has been phased out on modern car oil This additive is ZDDP, and the properties prevent wear on the cam lobes and lifters. The T5 oil is recommended to ensure that the engine does not wear excessively using the common oil used on newer cars. I was at a car show, and an expert who works on Corvairs indicated it is the best oil to use. In addition to wear resistant properties, it can handle the heat that an air cooled engine develops and not breakdown. It is advertised as a diesel lubricant, developed to handle the loads, temperature, and wear in a diesel engine.

    should be labeled as DEISEL ****

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Shell Rotella T5 10W-30 Heavy Duty Synthetic Blend Motor Oil (1 Gallon):

    For those that are inexeprinced with car parts/oil and ect. this item should be labeld better. I purchased this product online for my 2006 chrysler pacifica which is not DEISEL. I needed a synthetic oil and this was resonably priced. When i picked up my order at the store, the employee did not notice a had the wrong product and it wasn't even a enough to fill my car after the oil change. and yes i purchased the oil filter, air filter, gas cap and ect. All items were purchased in the same order :(

    Comments about Shell Rotella T5 10W-30 Heavy Duty Synthetic Blend Motor Oil (1 Gallon):

    I use this product in all of my small engines on equipment such as lawn mowers, tillers, snow blowers, generators and pressure washers. The oil has a lot of zinc for anti-wear and tollerates the high temperatures of these air cooled engines. High detergency is great for these non-filtered oil systems.

    • Q:

      I know a lot of people using T5 in Victory wet clutch motorcycles. They are 4 strokes with a wet clutch specifying semi-synthetic oil. Do you think this is a good use for T5?

        A:

        Glad to assist, Jim! We don't recommend Rotella T5 for wet clutch applications, usually wet clutch motorcycles call for an oil that meets the JASO MA spec. You'll need the Shell Rotella T4 Triple Protection 15W-40 or Rotella T6 5W-40 for your requirement.

        A:

        Hi Ricky, glad to assist you! We would not recommend Shell Rotella T5 10W-30 Heavy Duty Synthetic Blend Motor Oil - Part No. 550019908 for your 2003 Ford Ranger 4.0 L. The recommended oil for your engine is a synthetic blend ILSAC GF-5/API SN Resource Conserving 5W-30 oil, which is not met by Rotella T5. A more suitable option would be Pennzoil Gold 5W-30 or synthetic Pennzoil Platinum/Ultra Platinum 5W-30 if you would like an upgrade in performance.
