Someone mentioned problems with the le607 and that was the fluid i was going to go with but i would like other reccomendations if theres another fluid that suits my needs better than the le607. thanks.

since it does not get cold where you live, LE607 is fine.

I change my oil every 3K miles due too a lot of short distance driving. At 3K my oil is pretty dirty. Any of you guys experience dirty oil at 3K?

Color is of no indication to the condition of motor oil.

All oil will "look" dirty when it is doing its job. Getting a UOA will break down the contents of your oil and tell you if it is doing its job - and if your change intervals are correct or need to be adjusted.

There's no way I'm leaving any oil, no matter what type/brand in my car for 10K mi. That's just ridiculous. Where does all the dirt from 5.1 qts of oil go Into the oil filter?

Is the PacNW too cold for LE607? It ranges from 40-85 degrees.. RARELY is it below 45, though. And the car is garaged if that makes a difference.

Did I say anything about an oil change interval of 10k miles?

Those temps are fine for LE-607.

My owners manual says to only use DOT 4 fluid (in the brakes anyway) as temporary replacement for DOT 3. I guess DOT 3 is what it really likes?
