SOURCE: NEED OIL CHANGE

High mileage synthetic oil is a good option, especially if you have over 100k miles. If you want to go with the recommended oil for your vehicle, I would also recommend an additive such as Lucas Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer. Been using it in my vehicles for years and I swear by it. It's a bit pricey ($20 range) but I go 6k to 9k between oil changes. You can read a little more about it here:

Good luck!

When to engine change oil


depend on the age of the vehicle
new vehicle manufacturers recommend an oil change at 12 months but it is disputable requirement as there are additives in the oil that are neutralized over time and stop being effective in the oil operation

If you stick to an oil change every 5,000miles or 3 months , 10,000 klm or 6 months with a oil filter change at the same time , you will be doing good for he engine
Heavy dusty work or high speed work or low .short runs will require an earlier oil change

Oil wrench lite stays on for 10 seconds after starting. engine has oil and seems to run fine


Your light is on because the pressure has not come up enough to turn it on. Is it cold where you live? Do you know the weight of the oil in our engine? I don't know what the manufacturer recommends for your car for the weather you are experiencing. Do not say where you are.

Typical cold weather oil is 5 - 20, not to say this is what Isuzu recommends for your car ar your location. All oil is thicker and harder to move when the temp is low. If you have heavy oil to start with ... it is all the more difficult to get it going. The next time you get your oil changed, mane sure you find out what kind of oil is being used and mention your concern about your low oil warning light.

I hope I have answered your question.

My Honda Accord 1996 Vtec Engine Oil Short after i travelled long distance


If you are saying your oil level is low, then you need to add oil to your engine. If you are concerned that the oil level was low after your long drive, it would depend on how long it has been since you added oil or even checked your oil level.Engines will consume oil over a long period of time. Especially if the oil is not changed according to manufacturers recommendations. Unless the low oil level was sudden I would not be concerned. If it happened suddenly and in a short period of time, look for an oil leak of indication of the engine burning the oil, such as smoke at the exhaust pipe.

What is the best oil for nissan skyline 300 gt 2001 3000cc.


I have used many types of motor oil over 50 years...the reason I mention this is there are many improvements over those years relating to best viscosity...temperature and start-up lubricating concerns...Conventional factory approved oil's are OK. My personal preference for a low mileage premium auto is Castrol or Mobil-1 full synthetic motor oil...facotry specs vary from 5W30 to 10W30...your owners manual recommends this in your manual, and under the hood at the filler cap. The full synthetic is best for mileage...and durability...:) If your car is already over 50,000 miles I recommend the Castrol mix synthetic...a little less costly but still a better performer than conventional motor oils. Hope this helps.

NEED OIL CHANGE


I would use 20/50 SE synthetic motor oil or high mileage or if you have the money, Amsoil is also great. Also change your filter every time and keep your oil changed about 3000 miles or so. It is overkill to change the synthetic and oil filter frequently, but will very good for your motor.

Valve Lifter Noise on 2001 525.


The Castrol synthetic 5W20 oil may be too light for your car. None of the following three sources recommend 5W20 oil.

Per Bentley manual for 1999 and later E39 BMW (excluding M5), BMW HP 5W30 synthetic oil (07 51 0 017 866) is recommended.
Per the Mobil Oil web site, Mobil 1 synthetic 0W40 oil is recommended.
Per the Castrol Oil web site:
SM 5W-30 - Thank you for inquiring about what oil is best for your vehicle. Based on the information you provided, your vehicle requires a special engine oil that can only be purchased at your local dealer. Please visit your local dealer to ensure that your vehicle is serviced properly.

Does the noise vary or is it constant? Noticed only at startup or all the time?
Another ticking noise source could be the VANOS unit.

2003 F-250 powerstroke


Could be one of many things:

-Clogged fuel filter
-Leaking fuel line
-Bad fuel pump
-High or low oil level
-Overdue oil change (Will explain both these possible causes later)
-Bad high pressure oil pump, ICP sensor (injection control pressure sensor), ICR (injection control pressure regulator), or bad HEUI injectors, or oil lines
-Leak in the high pressure oil system (unlikely because you would have noticed this... This does not go undetected as the underside of your vehicle would be literally covered in oil and dripping in a very short period of time after the leak develops)
(Powerstroke engines use a HEUI fuel injection system, "Hydraulically actuated/electronically controlled unit injection", which relies on a high pressure hydraulic pump that uses engine crankcase oil and pumps it at high pressure (500 psi or so). This oil is sent to your fuel injectors to provide means for actuating them and pressurizing the fuel into the cylinders. High or low engine oil level, or old, diluted, additive depleted oil will cause this system to aerate the oil and result in poor fuel injection capabilities)

There might be other causes but this is the Powerstroke`s weak point... The HEUI system was first designed by Caterpillar, which makes a lot of excellent/bulletproof HEUI based engines, both in passenger vehicle and heavy trucks and equipment. The Powerstroke is an engine designed and made by International Truck and Engine, which cannot seem to make a HEUI engine, in any market, whether passenger, heavy truck, or equipment that does not suffer from fuel injection issues.
