    I'm guessing the engine oil would be Silkolene Pro S 5W-40, but what about the gearbox?

    Thanks.
    Gearbox Silkolene SYN 5 75w-90

    Thanks. One more question, if you don't mind...

    Tha car has Mobil 1 in the engine at present - do I need to do an engine flush when I fill up with the Silkolene?

    Don't flush, just drain and refill

    Cheers

    So no point buying some of this flush stuff when doing an oil change?

    I heard something about doing an engine flush helps clean the tappets or something! Was that a load of bollox??

    Thanks

    At first I was doubting this, thinking I'd need a thicker oil but after reading the thread I realise those short trips and cold starts will need exactly this kind. I'm hoping that will cover me for some hard road driving aswell.

    Easily, with room to spare, it's a race oil

    Its a semi-syn 10w-40 changed every 6000 or a fully 5w-40 changed every 12000 miles.

    Go with Fuchs, they're factory fill for VW

    Titan XTR 10w-40
    Titan Supersyn SL 5w-40

    Both these are on sale on my website http://www.opieoils.co.uk

    Hello oilman I need your help.

    Im about to service my 180sx and need a recommendation on which oil to get.

    Make: Nissan
    Model: 180sx
    Year: 1993
    Engine Size: 1998cc
    Engine Type: SR20DET
    Any Mods: Stage 1/2 (circa 300hp)
    Miles: 147,000KM's... 80-90 Thou Miles?

    I drive the car on regular short journeys approx 10min drive to work and back etc. Letting the car warm up a bit first before each drive. I like to give the car some stick every so often.

    Im just off to stratford-upon-avon this friday 14th and will be doing a couple runs on the 1/4mile which is the main reason for my oil change.

    EDIT - Which oil filter i need off your site would be awesome too

    Thanks in advance

    Dave

    I would go for the Pro S 10w-50 as tops.

    Filters are not a problem, either call us to order or go for it online at my website.

    Cheers

    Hi guys what engine oil would you recommend for the following vehicle (likely to see track action and no oil cooler as of yet):-

    Toyota Soarer JZZ30, this has got the 1JZ engine in it (2.5L straight six twin ceramic turbos).

    Its a '92 J plate, also any idea how much it takes?

    Cheers,

    Dunc.

    Dunc,

    I would go for the Silkolene Pro S 10w-50 if it is going to be used on track.

    It will take 5ltr.

    Cheers

    Guy.

    Simon,

    Make: Nissan
    Model: 200SX (14a)
    Year: 99
    Engine Size: 2L
    Engine Type: Turbo
    Any Mods: Stage 1 (See sig)
    Type of driving: Daily commute of 8 miles each way and a little bit of fast road every now and then!

    When I originally bought her she was being ran on 0-40 to stop the top end rattle but I put in 10-60 thinking it may calm it down as 0-40 was too thin?!

    I take it Pro S 5-40 would be the best recommendation as it has thinner startup values and the temp should be fairly normal every day.

    Yes, looking at the use I would go for 5w-40, the Pro S will be ideal.

    Regards

    what do you recon to valvoline vr1 5w 50, been using it for about 6 months, used to use silkolene pro s 10w 50 but got much worse vvt rattle, seems very quiet lately with the valvoline, but it's a bit cheap so am worried by reading this post. mines a s14a stage 2 driven hard, when its warm of course, sometimes sustains high rpm aswell if running fast in top gear, recomendations?
