Motor oil life unused

65

Asked by Apr 05, 2015 at 10:47 AM about the 2002 Ford Crown Victoria LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While cleaning out my Dad's garage I found some  SAE30 Union 76 motor oil. I don't know exactly old, but it is in cardboard cans the have to be opened with one of those spouts that punch through the metal top, and there is an entire case, 24 cans. What is the shelf life of motor oil? Is it useless for an engine? I would never put it in my Crown Vic but maybe an old car that uses a lot? I barely even remember those old spouts and cardboard cans, may be from the 70's or 80's.

Hey guys good news and bad news. I took your idea and out it on ebay and got a bid for $60 the very next day. Accepted bid, prob shoulda held out. Got money, and heres the bad news, USPS wouldn't take it. Hazardous material. UPS same. Fed-ex agreed to ship, but also cause haz mat charged $45 to ship. On top of that had to buy a plastic crate to 'contain in event of spill' cardboard box inside plastic box $15 for approved container total $60. Broke even. Oh well live and learn
