2.7L Shell Rotella Diesel Oil
Hello everyone, my 2002 Concorde is due for an oil change, and I'm looking for some input on the Shell Rotella T6 engine oil.
My Concorde has a 2.7L engine (yes, I know they're a problem child. No I'm not worried. And yes, I already upgraded to water pump to an aftermarket model with an improved gasket design) with 146 000 kilometers on it. It's spotless inside, runs like a dream, and I'd like to keep it that way. After all, paying a premium for oil is a lot cheaper than buying a new car.
There's been a few mentions on these forums of people using Shell Rotella T6 engine oil, and that's what I planned on going with; until I saw on the jug that it's a diesel oil.
In the past, diesel oils would play havoc with cat converters and as a general rule, weren't recommended for other engine types.
Is that still true with today's oils and engines? I used to run diesel oil in my old Chrysler Cirrus with no trouble, but that could have been a fluke.
If anyone reading this has experience with Rotella T6 oil (or diesel oils in general), their opinions/input would be greatly appreciated.
