2000 Ford Explorer that uses AMSOIL products bumper-to-bumper.
Dealer Russell Sanderlin Sr. of Orlando, Fla. attributes the high mileage on his 2000 Ford Explorer to the performance qualities of AMSOIL products. In fact, the truck turned over to 570,000 miles in March 2011. He typically travels about 65,000 miles a year.
Sanderlin has had nothing but success with AMSOIL products. “I got my Explorer new and have used AMSOIL from day one,” he said. In 2000, he started with AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30 in the crankcase, then switched to Signature Series 0W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil (SSO).
A rear main seal went bad and leaks some oil. “So, I now use the AMSOIL SAE 60 Racing Oil (AHR) with the AMSOIL Absolute Efficiency Oil Filter (EAO15), and they work great,” Sanderlin said. “I am still maintaining the same efficiency, exceeding the 21 MPG highway as shown on the new sales sticker. I had the oil pan gasket replaced at 500,000 miles. My mechanic was amazed the engine was so clean and sludge-free. He says he has customers who use petroleum oil that they change every 3,000 miles that still show sludge deposits.”
Sanderlin uses AMSOIL Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) in the transmission and power steering. “They both operate like new and are repair-free,” he said.
In the differential, he uses AMSOIL Synthetic 75W-90 Long Life Gear Oil (FGR). “I just had the fluid replaced in the differential after 500,000 miles, and my mechanic could not believe there was zero play, as if the differential had been assembled by the manufacturer the day before,” Sanderlin said.
Sanderlin also uses AMSOIL Synthetic DOT-3 Brake Fluid.
