Cheapest diesel/petrol engine oil you can buy from supermarket ,change the oil every 5000m and a oil filter every third oil change and you wont go far wrong ,mineral or synthetic it doesnt matter just the cheapest diesel/petrol oil will do .Avoid the pundits who know it all and when they have two beers they are motor vehicle technicians and three beers then they are design and development engineers and never got their hands dirty in their lives .

Where is the ac low side port located on 1987 Chrysler lebaron turbo


It varies. The low side is the bigger line.
Usually the fitting is on the compressor, the drier, or in the line.
The high side is the thinner line.

Why is oil coming out of the exhaust pipe?


If your previous turbo had leaked oil into the exhaust system there would still be oil residue left in the system. (1) The catalytic converter/converters would need to be replaced if you have one plus any O2 sensors. (2) If your muffler/mufflers are a glass packed type, replace it with a new one. If muffler is a chamber type you can clean it with a solvent or replace your call. The muffler/mufflers are were most of the oil will be pooling. (3) Clean as much of the exhaust as you can with the solvent that you used to flush the mufflers with.

Need to know engine size for 87 four door chrysler labaron


Check the VIN number of your vehicle (Little metal tag on the dashboard in the bottom corner of the windshield on the drivers side). The 8th digit from the left is your engine code. i.e. xxxxxxxExxxxx

If it is E, you have a 2.2L Turbo
If it is D, you have a 2.2L non-Turbo
If it is K, you have a 2.5L non-Turbo

Engine is using 1/2 qt of oil every 800mi, 1.8T '04 Cabriolet


Your mechanic is spot on. The A4's are notorious for turbo overheating and failure. The oil burn is coming in the TURBO itself and then being distributed to 2.3.4 as a side effect. Your not noticing blue smoke because your catalytic converter is doing its job and the minor smoke being generated is being taken care of in the CAT. If you continue to drive as is you will run a certain risk of catalytic converter damage, cylinder damage from fouling (cylinder wash) build up, sludge, etc. If your mechanic has the knowledge on this specifc model there is a way to test the turbo output and turbo heat generation to absolutely confirm. One last thing. in ANY turbo car its imperative to run QUALITY oils not your local wal-mart brand or no name. Many people are not familiar with the demands on a TURBO engine and oil change facilities pull standard oil from 55 gallon drums via a pump.. so you arent feeding your car properly. The AVG (Audi/Volkswagen) company recommends FULL SYNTHETIC and either Castrol or Mobil 1. I have a Turbo Diesel and use Mobil1 as my choice. The recommended oil for your car via their web page is Current Vehicle: Year: spacer.gif 2003 Make: spacer.gif Audi Model: spacer.gif A4 Quattro Engine Type: spacer.gif 4cyl. 1.8Liter Turbocharged
button_viewprintable.gif spacer.gif Mobil 1 0W-40
A fully synthetic motor oil, Mobil 1 0W-40 with SuperSyn Technology exceeds industry standards and the major leading builder requirements, enabling the product to keep performing well after conventional oils cannot. Mobil 1 is recommended by leading car manufacturers as initial fill

88 LeBaron --3 things...


problem 1 check the motors side by side
if the operation and mounting is the same more than likely will
problem 2 put the hand brake on and start the car, place in gear if it idles ok then put your foot on the brake --if it plays up it is a vacuum leak in the brake booster
problem 3-- gm has a policy of not changing transmission oil
if the car has more than 100,000miles on it , I would suggest taking it to an accredited transmission specialist shop, have the bands and clutch packs adjusted and a transmission oil change done

1986 Dodge 600 K use Syntehtic Oil?


Sounds like you do a good job on oil changes. Just use a good grade oil. I like castrol. I've been scared of valvoline since they bought out quaker state.
