OK, sorry to go on and on and on about oil but I just need a few things sorted that are playing on my mind.
- If you CHANGE the oil, do you HAVE to change the filter too or can it just be drained and then the new oil added ?
- In the handbook, it states that 5w40 is recommended. I have heard that people are using 10w40 Magnatec, is this oil suitable ? What other grade oils are suitable ? Gold Mobil 1 Synthetic any good ?
- My car has done nearly 1900 miles now, should I get SYNTHETIC or SEMI-SYNTHETIC ?
I know some people have said that the oil doesnt matter, just get any but I want to get it right.
I would just like to say a big thanks to ChavyBoy for his excellent step by step guide to change the oil and filter complete with photos that he sent me, you da man !
Any help with this would be mucho appreciated and I will then shut up forever !
Cheers all !
