Question about 1996 Mitsubishi Galant
My car when idaling, say at the traffic lights threatens to go off when the traffic lights go green. It worse when I switch on the Air conditioner - this actually makes it go off. I am wondering wether this is an Engine oil problem. My exhause pipe - the protruding section is totally black. Please advise
Engine oil will not cause a problem like that. Your oil prevents wear of internal moving parts. The problem you have seems like a fuel management problem. Have that checked out.
Any good quality 10w 30 oil will work well in most applications. Keep it full and change at regular intervals.
Fuel problems can cause some excess fuel to contaminate engine oil therefore after you get your problem solved, change the oil as a precaution.
