It is funny to listen to the Chevron gas commercials. BTW. What does a clean engine look like on the inside?
There is gonna be black carbon, soot, sludge(oil and water combined to name a few. It is not "clean" if it has been used as a vehicle(driven).
Your fireplace ain't clean either even if you use those "clean burning" logs.
Oil on the outside of the engine, well, I guess you can't eat off it. Other than that, so what?
The car runs fine. An oil change will improve on the longevity of the motor(as you are removing fine abrasives ) in that dirty oil. A change in filters would help more.
The fact is the dirty oil was not dirty enough to plug the oil filter and that is the good news. There is nothing wrong. Go to jiffy lube and do an oil and filter change and then another one 500-1000 miles later and then you should be fine at doing it at the recommended intervals from that point on.
Don't be duped.
