    Hi Guy,

    Make: Nissan
    Model: 200SX S14a
    Year: 1998
    Engine Size: 2.0
    Engine Type: SR20DET VVT Turbo
    Any Mods: FMIC, Walbro, SSQV Recirc, Straight through exhaust with HKS Hi-Power Can (No CATs), Induction Kit
    Type of driving (track or just road etc): Daily drive, some motorway miles

    The oil you currently use (make and grade)

    Not a clue as its the first change since getting it and the oil is very black at the moment.

    Cheers

    Dave,

    5w-40 is still ideal. I would stick with it.

    Hi Simon

    Does oil deteriorate over time when unused? Reason I ask, car was off the road for over a year, after doing around 100 miles after oil change (Silkolene Pro S 5W40

    I've taken the precaution of changing the oil as it had been off the road for so long, but was that really necessary?

    Chris,

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I would go 5w-40 synthetic, if you plan to use on track then perhaps try 10w-50. Loads of good ones here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

    For the gearbox 75w-90, again loads here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx The diff is also a 75w-90. Many go for the Silkolene SYn5 75w-90 as this will do both diff and gearbox.

    Delivery charges here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/t-carriage.aspx

    Cheers

    5w-40 synthetic is fine, unless you really do drive it very hard.

    Most popular are the ester based synthetics, such as these here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-953-ester-synthetic.aspx
