It depends on if it is a diesel or petrol
then it depends on the use
look on the back or a bottle of oil it will have a graph there and it will say if it is good for older motors or not or if it is good for big motors
oil bottles have guides on the back that will help you
just make Shaw one thing diesel oil for diesel motors
same with petrol "gas"

The a/t oil hot light comes on my 1987 pathfinder automatic transmission 4w drive , what can it be ?


Low fluid, Clogged Filter, Time for a Filter and Fluid Change, bad Pump in the transmission overheating or bad Torque converter. Your going to have to take it to a shop to be sure. if the over temp lite comes on but the transmission is working fine it may also be a faulty sensor.

My Nissan pathfinder 1987 just got a tune up. when idling it turns off. I had to pump the gas at the same time that I crank the engine it starts up. When changing gears it seems to struggle to get power,...


will try to help, look for a loose or undone vacum line around your intake.[top of motor]make sure the vacum lines are secure in the position they are wupposed to be.[all plugged up and not sucking air.] make sure the air breather is secure and no leaks of air around the breather. make sure the p.c.v. valve is'nt blocked by sludge. it will be a round cylinder type plug in, it's about 1'inch around that plugs into your valve cover on either side of engine. it should just pull up from valve cover with very little force. it will be oil soaked on top and bottom. but, make note' it will unplug from valve cover, if you are looking at the motor from front w/hood open, look at the vale cover on left side of engine at middle of valve cover, you should see it, unplug[pull-up] and install new one. hope this helps! and as always, if you need further assistance please repost your request at fixya.com we will be happy to help!!

1987 nissan pathfinder wont crank or anything


FIRST TRY TO SEE IF THE FUSE AND RELAY ARE FUNCTIONING PROPERLY. IF THEY CHECK OUT THEN CHECK FOR SPARK AT EACH ONE OF THE SPARK PLUGS. IF YOU ARE GETTING SPARK THEN I WOULD REPLACE THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR. THIS DEVICE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OPENING INJECTORS AND SPARK PULSE THROUGH THE COMPUTER. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE LET ME KNOW. BEST OF LUCK
