    I know for a lot of you this is kind of a "duh" thing, but we figured out thats what killed my car. when it was added to the 5W30 in the summer it was ok, but adding it to the 10W30 in the winter put too much resistance for the piston, which in turn stressed the connecting rod and killed my poor celica...one day it shall roar again...(it really does roar, nasty hole in the muffler...)
