My 2003 Volvo S60 shifts hard from 1st to 2nd gear. This is a automatic trans. where you can shift manually! Help

I don't have that prob on mine but I would suggest you change your ATF asap with Mobil1 or equivalent. Do a complete flush and observe the fluid taken out if there r chunks of metal w/ it. If none you're in luck.After flush, test drive only on "D" and see if the harsh shifting is still there. If no Mobil1 is available just like here in San Diego, use Valvoline MaxLife for cars w/ over 75k miles. Owners manual specifies a certain number on recomended ATFs and it's in the MaxLife. I just used it and seems to be working good. Good luck

What kind of oil does a 1999 Camry need?

5 qts of 5w-30.

I personally prefer MOBIL1 brand ..You can decide as per your wish..


There are many grades of oil weights whichever you want to call it. Heres how it works
Oils main job is to keep the engine clean, lubed, running cool ect. The grade usually 5w20 5w30 or 10w30 ect. Theres many of them as well which can be consfusing at times. Oil weight is measure by cold and hot . For ex: 5w30 The 5 weight is when the oil is cold and 30 is the weight when its hot. The reason being is the the less the weight when its cold the easier the oil can get to the top of the engine and lube it to prevent cold engine damage. Once its heated up its a 30 weight and is thick enough to protect your engine.( most engine damage is caused when the engine is cold )You should use the proper grade that your engine calls for. Being toyota its probably 5 or 10w 30.If you live up north i would recommenda 5w30 weight.You can easily find out which grade you should use by your owners manual or under the hood on the oil cap. However there are synthetic oils as well. Synthetic oils have man made additives to help the engine run cooler, the oil is naturally slicker to help it move around easier and boost performance of the engine resulting in better mpgas well. They have alot of additives to prevent engine wear ect. One good thing about a synthetic oil is you can go longer on the oil change. Instead of the normal 3,000 miles oil change you can go 4 or 5 k. Theres also synthetic blends. Which are good too but youll have to read about it more to decide for yourself what you think you need. Synthetic oils are better for someone who travels alot or puts extreme conditions on an engine such as idling for long periods of time stop and go traffic its really good for anything to be honest.. I would recommend using synthetic if you decide to keep the car for a while. It has many benefits.

What is engine oil type, 2001 durango 4-wheel 4.7 engine

You can use any of the following weights of motor oil: 5W30, 10W30, or 10W40. Personally, I use Mobil1 Synthetic 5W30 in my pickup. Synthetic is better for your motor (you can go 5,000 miles between oil changes with synthetic oils) but once you start using it it's better if you stay with it meaning every oil change you use synthetic oil.

2006 VW NB convertible 5 sp manual oil requirements

What engine do you have? If you have the 1.8 turbo engine, you absolutely need to run synthetic - the 1.8T engine is known for oil sludge issues, and running synthetic will stem that a bit. You'll still have sludge issues, but they can be held at bay. Use synthetic oil only, and do a treatment with SeaFoam (available at parts stores) every third oil change, and you should be fine.

Now, just because you need synthetic oil, does not mean you need to pay $13/qt for it from a dealer. Mobil1 synthetic is excellent oil (I used it for years in my 500+hp twin turbo 300ZX), and it's on the official Audi list of approved oils (Audi and VW are part of the same conglomerate). It runs less than $5/qt. Get Mobil1, and your oil filter, at the parts store, and change your oil at home - it'll take you 20 minutes or so and save you a bundle.
