jeffiam said:sure, then it has to be pulled out of the filter. pressure is up immediately but it STILL takes a little time to circulate throughout the lines/engine. thats all im saying..........out of all the posts, for some reason i want to make a point after 5 months on the ROC.
yes, have no doubts about the parts still having oil on them. thats true today and was true before oil and engine advances. i just personally think its better to let all fluids fully circulate before advancing the engine based on my experiences/inquiries. i once drove my 84 chevy silverado 20 miles with 0 psi, the oil pump had failed. i was fortunate the engine didn't lock up but the type of lube i used allowed me that extra time since it was still coating the engine parts.nevadagarth said:Oil isn't the only thing to protect your engine. Pretty much all newer engines (pistons, piston rings, cylinder walls, valves, etc.) have an alloy coating for additional protection to the engine parts that receive the most wear. That is one of the ways the engine manufacturers get an additional 5 hp, cleaner burn, better mpgs, etc.
If you will notice, the oil we use is a 5W20, extremely lightweight oil and very small molecules. Gravity will pull heavier oil and bigger molecules down, but capillary action and static charge (static cling) will allow the lighter weight oil and smaller molecules to remain adhered to the engine parts.
Stick a knife in syrup or cooking oil. Lift the knife out and you will see (taste) that the syrup or cooking oil will stay adhered to the knife. Leave it there for a little while and see what happens. Still there.
Better yet, take your oil dip stick out and leave it our for awhile. Come back later and rub your fingers, or better yet a white cloth, over it. What do you feel or see?
