RP is overhyped for the cost of it. there oils tend to have plastic in them that does nothing...

lol -my iPad doesn't do Korean (guessing that's Korean cause that's where you are).

I respect and value your opinion, Jeff, especially because of your mechanical skills/background. I've only heard good things about RP, but if you say it's overrated, that's good enough for me!

I already use Penzoil 5W20.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

RP engine oil is like $10/qt!! I guess it sorta proves the marketing theory that if you charge more people will think it's better.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

from page 396 in the my owners manual...

Engine Oil Viscosity (3.7L/4.7L/5.7L Engines)
SAE 5W-20 engine oil is recommended for all operating
temperatures. This engine oil improves low temperature
starting and vehicle fuel economy.
