I only ran it gently for 250 miles strictly around town. When I drained it and it came out BLACK and with some globs. When I refilled with 20W50 and started it the engine made a rattling sound that scared the hell out of me. It promptly quit once the oil pressure came up. I haven't heard it since.

Thanks a Million
