Is the car new to you? Just wondering if it was a change in oil or filter considering it did it right after a change.

Holy shit lol, castrol living on the edge is more like it. Likely of the oil was super dirty that the new oil and detergent cleaned some stuff up. If it's only been doing it a few days I'd say check the oil level and see if it clears up in a little while. What filter did you use out of curiosity?

I'd take it on a highway run and change the oil again to make up for your negligence lmao. Maybe try something besides castrol. I've heard penzoil ultra platinum is the new oil everyone is arguing about.

5w30 yes, I would do your own research on oil you may have different opinions, I'm sure most synthetic oil is good these days. Ultra platinum has apparently been proven to last longest, which might be a good thing for you lol. Most of us that run 3k mile oil intervals are probably good with just about any synthetic. Most of us use the UPF48s or upf63s ac delco filters as well.
