Question Oil Question

So I was changing my oil yesterday and I ended up cracking the oil pan. I noticed the crack after I put the new oil in as it was seeping through the crack. So i had to drain the newly added oil to JB Weld the crack (temporary solution) until i buy a new pan and gasket.

My question:
The oil I put in was new but it's Dark BROWN when i drained it rather than the gold color out of the bottle. is it still good to use?

Re: Oil Question

As long as you were careful to avoid contamination in the catch pan, fine to use.

Re: Oil Question

that sucks, i just do it to where its "snug and sealed". but then again i torque like 300 lug nuts everyday so my hand had a built in "torque meter".

if u JB welb it u will probably have to sandpaper it to ruff it up otherwise it may just fall of when it heats up to "X"temp. i would get the putty stick from JB
