Aos again

2 years and 5K miles ltr I have copious white smoke again.

I did use a URO brand product, did I make a judgement error by going budget?

If it is any solace, I found that its easier the second time around.

In terms of pricing, over the long haul and for a lot of different parts, Pelican's pricing sort of averages out - they might be a little higher on some items but they were also cheaper on other items.

I’m in the same boat as you. Replaced with URO sos and it seems to be bad again. I’ll keep a close eye on it for the next couple of days.
