Jaguar recommends Castrol brand oil with the following comments:
5W30 is the 'preferred' weight to use for the best fuel economy, however, it's recommended to use when the outside temp is between -31 degrees F and +95degrees F. So if you live in a hot climate, they recommend 0W40, for temps between -31F and +122F, or 5W40 for temps between -22F and +122F. I'm not sure of their recommendation for how often to change the oil, but 3K miles or twice a year (whichever comes 1st) is the way to go. countrycurt0

I just bought a used jaguar 2007 XJ8L and than I got full service with possibely covered everthing it's 51,000 mile. I just took off from parking lot of dealer and not even 2 mile and its said...


I don't know that I would worry too much. When serviced, they may have left something unplugged. They may be able to take care of this in just a few minutes tomorrow morning. If it turns out to be something bigger, let me know. Beautiful cars!

What is the best oil to be placed in a bmw 523i 2006 ?


I always use Castrol Edge in mine. I like to service and change oil and filter every five thousand kilo....But I do live in a very dusty place.
I like Castrol oils if you prefer a different brand always go for the synthetic high performance oil formulated for the engine in your vehicle.

MY 1998 JAGUAR XJ8L IS TURNING OVER BUT WONT START. MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN DRIVING IT AND SAID A "LOW OIL PRESSURE LIGHT WAS COMING ON. I JUST CHECKED THE OIL AND THERE IS NONE IN THERE!!! HOW MANY QUARTS...


Start with one quart but continue to put it in until the level reaches the full mark on the dipstick. Your car requires synthetic oil, 5/30w is fine, personally I wouldn't put synthetic in right away as I would check to see if it starts first and then if it does, change all the oil to synthetic asap. I say this only because there is no point pouring expensive oil into an engine that may require major repairs...which is possible if it was run low on oil for any length of time.

Hope this helps,
Dave

Which oil is best for my 2007 4runner 35000 miles


Well, I can tell you the grade is 5w-30.

Non-synthetic you need to change the oil every 3,000 miles.

Full synthetic, you can go a little longer on oil changes. Like 4,000 to 5,000. Better for higher demand engines. Like hauling trailers and stuff.

As far as the brand, personally I like Valvoline. Other people have different brands they like. But, that just mine.

Coolant light comes on


Ouch. Been down that road.

Sounds to me like a head gasket problem.

Pull your oil dipstick.

Is your oil watery?

Does your dipstick smell like coolant?

Does your coolant have an oily film on it?

You can have a dye leak test done to confirm it.

Should you be able just to have the head gaskets changed and not the engine, again..insist on thenewest, brand name, top of the line gaskets
available.

Best of luck.

Oil for 2007 AUDI A4 2.0t Quatro


The best balance of price, quality, availability that I have found is Mobil1 synthetic - it's on Audi's approved oils list. With the 2.0T engine, you absolutely want to use synthetic (the Audi turbo fours are known for oil sludge issues), and you want to do a SeaFoam treatment every 15k miles or so - that combination will keep your engine in great running shape.
