Lay the gaskets correctly? Antifreeze in oil or vice versa? What does the exhaust smell like? White smoke usually means antifreeze and blue is oil burn.

Did you use marvel mystery oil at some point in time?

There's a ton of people that would disagree with you. Is this just your opinion or did you have a bad experience?

Why is that? I've always heard good things about it. I've never used it, I personally use Castrol in all my vehicles. Always have and never had any problems with it.

There have been tons of people that have had issues running royal purple. Personally I have not because I refuse to use it. It's also know to turn insides of motors purple. That I have seen. There have been test done that have shown that royal purple is about as good as using old oil.
