Playtime98 Posted February 11, 2004 Report Share Posted February 11, 2004 Did an oil change today. It was my first oil change on the Royal Purple. I changed it at 3000 miles but the length was probably 6-8 months. I was only going to change the filter and wait another 3000 before changing the oil. But after some investigation and talk, i ended up having to change the oil. The oil had a brown color to it as opposed to purple as i thought i would still be. I talked to the local Royal Purple dealer and he said that there would still be some old oil cycling through it and advised to change at 3000 and the next time it would come out still purple. The old royal purple i drained out turned from purple to a regular dark brown. But there was a semi-strong smell of fuel. Is this normal or does this indicate somethiing is wrong?
