Well a lot of motor oil brands will have a high milage formula, I prefer synthetic oil for my engine but at 194k miles if you haven't used synthetic oil for the life of the engine it's kind of pointless to start using it now. On that model I believe the recommend change time for the oil is every 5k miles, I would start doing it at every 3k and not worry about synthetic.

    I just bought the vehicle used a month ago I don't know anything about the previous owner or what oil they used it in. The sticker says 194,000 for a new oil change and I'm about 500 miles away

All a matter of preference, but I like Mobil 1 fully synthetic for these engines.

    5W30 or 10W30 with that many miles. Mine has 154K miles, I use 10W30

SOURCE: 2000 Blazer stuck in 4WD

The first thing I would look at is the shift rod on the transfer case. If I remember correctly, it is on the drivers side and is a rod aboutsix inches long and has two ends that basically pop into rubber gromets. If that rod is bent in any way, or has come loose of the gromets, it will not shift into or out of the four wheel drive. If yours has electronic four wheel drive, the electric acutator could be out or going out. you should be able to remove the rod and simply move the switch by hand on the transfer case. It will get you out of 4 wheel drive until you have the ime to diagnose the electronics at least. It has happened to both my 1994 and 1999 S-10 blazers.

Just bought a 1999 4wd jeep grand cherokee with 215k miles on it, what is some things i should do/replace to this jeep?


Check all the fluids and make sure they are good. i.e. diffs. oil, transmission, coolant, transfer case fluid, air filter. Use high mileage oil. Check the belt for cracks, usually it will start squealing a bit when it needs to be replaced. Tightening it will not help.

Just got a1999 jeep wrangler sport with a 4.0l 6cyl and 124,000 miles,what is the best oil and oil filter to use. anthony


There are several different oils to use. I would run a high mileage oil if possible, the brand really doesn't make a difference, but on the oil fill cap it will recommend the proper weight such as 5-30 or 5-20 or 10-40, etc. Proper weight in a high mileage oil is best. Oil filters are about the same way. FRAM being probably the most popular and widely used.

'97 Chevy Blazer LS. 77 K miles. At what mileage is the suggested timing belt change for these models or is it change them when they break?


Chevy blazers dont have timing belts they have chains. The chains get noisey on some engines that are run hard or the oil changes are missed. Sometimes these engines live their whole life if not run too hard without changing the chain. Noise lower gas mileage uneven idel hesate to accerate. These are all things that happen over 100 thou miles. Many go way farther with no problems

What is a better oil?


High mileage. Synthentic oil will help but high mileage will do more. Synthetic is designed for higher output engines and for getting more power in higher stress. High mileage is designed to protect engine parts from wear.

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.

Mileage 194,000 SCARY!


If most of the miles were done on the highway, that is a good thing. If most were stop and go, then I would shy away from buying it. If you continue with the oil changes at 3000 miles and keep the car up on maintenance, you'll see alot more miles out of this car. It should be a really good one for a college commuter. I wouldn't hesitate in buying this car.
