i recently changed my engine oil and filter from carquest brand to quaker state and about 500 miles later, i started having some issues like, rough idle and loud ticking and bottom engine noise. is that just a coincidence or has anyone else had any problems with this oil? 1.6L D.O.H.C.

guessing your filter is aftermarket?

these cars like their OEM filters from the stealership. there's a TSB on this, its one of the weird things with these cars. start there.

myself, i have been using filters from carquest. yes i have noticed an issue. in the dead cold when i first start i will get some brief ticking that goes away. however, that only happens when the oil gets under 3/4 on the dipstick. solution is keep it filled up which isn't that hard.

i would just try the filter though. will be switching myself. i didn't know previously and i had a stockpile of the old filters sitting around.

so, its not the oil i should be concerned with. the carquest filters are made by wix. they are not as good as the ones from the dealer?
