    So, I'm having a local shop change my oil/rotate my tires Thursday, and they only use Kendall Synthetic oil with "titanium". . . Anybody have any reviews of this brand oil? I'm not familiar with it. All I've ever used is conventional Pennzoil.

    Just this time, I don't have time to change it myself :(

    I have heard that Kendall makes great oil. I have no experience with it though.

    I've not used any of the Kendall synthetic or blend oils, but I've used Kendall petro oil for years and not had any troubles.

    I have used kendall motor oil once and ill never use it again. My engine did not idle smooth and was running loud. You could hear valve noises. Im sure it didnt hurt it, and I left it in for 4000 miles without worrying. But I would not put it back in. I prefer quaker state or penzoil high millage. If you are concerned I would just bring the oil that you prefer and have them put that in.
