Rough Idle

I changed my oil on Wednesday and ever since then my truck has idled rough, but not all the time. The only difference is that I used CAT oil instead of Rotella. Any thoughts?

Re: Rough Idle

Did you do anything different other than the usually routine? how many miles since last oil change? What weight CAT oil? and what weight did you use before? Anything else diff other than the rough idle? does it start like usual?

Re: Rough Idle

I think you should try advanced auto parts 30w, cause thats the best their is for a sport truck. I use 5w/30 but minees older.

Re: Rough Idle

a couple of years ago i was due for an oil change and all i could get at the time was valvoline premium blue and my truck would idle rough. took two oil changes (10,000) mi before it straightened up. i only use rotella or mobil now. if i cant get those two i wait until i can.190,000 mi and still uses no oil.
