What Is The Best Motor Oil For A 1996 Nissan Quest


AMSOIL 5W-30 Signature Series 100% synthetic motor oil or Mobil 1 5W-30 Extended mileage are probably the best 2 synthetics. Depending on the mileage, you might be better off with using a standard 5W-30 non-synthetic oil and just change it regularly.

What type of engine oil should i use for my 2002 jeep grand cherokee


I've had Jeeps for the past thirty years and in every one I use a good grade of synthetic oil. I generally run a 20w/50 but 10w 30 or 40 is fine. I use Amsoil because it lasts far longer than others do but any good name brand synthetic is fine (hint: Walmart synthetic is made by Quaker State and is just fine, you can change it at 4K -5K miles without problems.)
Always use a good quality filter...ones rated at the smallest micron filtration protect the best. Think of your oil filter as your kidneys. The better they are, the better you feel!!!

How often should oil be changed ?


That depends on the brand and type of synthetic you use, as well as the type of oil filter. Mobil 1 makes an extended service full synthetic, which they claim is good for 15,000 miles between changes. Amsoil full synthetic advertises 25,000 miles between changes; but only if you also install and use one of their super fine bypass oil filters, in addition to your car's regular oil filter.

Since the actual mileage you can go between oil changes is very dependent of the type of driving you do, the brand of oil you use, and the condition of your engine; there really is no hard and fast rule. That's why commercial vehicle fleets regularly take samples of their oil, and send it to laboratories for analysis to determine whether it needs changing. Sometimes it is necessary to change oil more often than expected; other times you can go longer between changes. My experience has been that, when oil is nearing the mileage where it needs changing; the rate of consumption will significantly increase. So when my car needs a quart added, it usually means it ought to be changed.

Regardless of the oil you use; if the change intervals are longer than the car manufacturers recommendations, it will void your factory engine warranty. That said; I have typically felt comfortable with 7,500 mile change intervals when using full synthetic oil of an appropriate viscosity.

I would also add that it is much safer to stay with only one brand and type of oil for the life of your vehicle; this is true for both conventional and synthetic oils. I have seen too many engines ruined by switching to a different brand or type of oil. Mobil 1 is chemically different from all the other synthetic oils, and is closer to petroleum oil in its characteristics. I prefer it for that reason. They also make a european formula 0W-40 full synthetic, which is available in the U.S, and is my preferred viscosity for all around use. It is not one of their extended service oils; but the protection is far superior to other oil grades. Not all stores carry it; but it can often be ordered from stores which carry other Mobil 1 products; and can always be bought from the local Mobil oil distributor.

What synthetic oil is the best one to get for my 1999 lexus gs 300


AMSOIL or Mobil 1 synthetic oils. Either one. AMSOIL claims to be the best but...in order to meet the standards "all" manufacturers of synthetic oils have to have the minimum oil content mixture to achieve the quality standards.

SJ or SL or ILSAC 5W-30 is the manufacturers recommended engine oil.

The cam angle sensor need to be replace. Once it's cooked it will never the same.

Have to consider moving to synthetic oil (Like Amsoil) or remove the front license plate (please check state regulation first).

=====

I'm using Amsoil Synthetic
10W-30 in summer and 5W-30 in winter

Use 65/35 Amsoil coolant mix ration instead of 50/50

Removing the license plate does help air flow.

Clean junk collect in front of the A/C condenser and radiator.

Check radiator cap's plastic gasket.
Get a Rad-Cap

Check/Clean the ECU contacts with CRC electronic part cleaner,

@ 85,000+ miles be prepare for timing belt + water pump change.

Clean / change temp sensor ///// monitor electric fan for operation.


Cam sensor can not be overheated.

<230 F is ideal

I listed everything that can keep the motor cool.

Just bought an '81 Vette with a rebuilt 350 with 5K miles on it. What weight and type motor oil is reccomended?


I personaly would run amsoil 5w-30 or royal purple 5w-30. Those are a full synthetic and I can tell you from experience they are great. I run Royal Purple in my silverado and Amsoil in my cbr 600rr. Also, from independant studies done on Royal Purple and Amsoil they can go longer between oil changes then most oils. Royal Purple has been tested after driving 22,500 miles and still could be used if you wanted to leave it in the engine. I usually change mine around every 10,000 to 12,000 miles.

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.

You need 4,6 qts of 5W-20 motor oil. If I were you I'd start right now to use synthetic oil. If you decide to do it - go with "The First in Synthetics" and the best: Amsoil! 5W-20 XL motor oil gives you (guaranteed) protection for 7.500 miles. (Do not fall for warranty cancellations or similar dealership spam. Magnuson-Moss act prohibts cancellations based on brand). Read this: http://people.msoe.edu/~yoderw/oilfilterstudy/oilfilterstudy.html or this: http://www.lesabret.com/filters/filter.html and try to avoid Fram filters. It seems that any other filter is better than Fram. I'd recommend Amsoil, Wix, Carquest (made by Wix), Mobil...
