No harm provided this is the grade you added to. Not a lot of harm if previous oil was syntectic or semi synthetic but if the oil in the engine was mineral oil then they won't mix properly. If you are unsure then it's best to change it all. Another thought I have is if it needed topping up then it's probably ready for an oil change anyway. If you have changed it recently check it was changed with the recomended grade. If you put synthetic oil in an engine where mineral or semi syntectic is recomended then fully synthetic your engine may burn it as it is very thin. Hope all this makes sence to you if not get back to me and I will clarify. Cheer's

Peugot 106 got warter under rocker cover and white creamey gung going from the breather from the rocker to the air filtter been told its not head gasket


So it's not the head gasket? And you are still losing coolant? Well, okay, you will have to find how the water is getting into the rocker, and whether it's your lost coolant or plain water. IDK, possibly an intake manifold leak?
Even though the oil looks clean, the water and gunge in the rocker area will drain into the sump and contaminate the oil. If it's not the coolant, run the engine until it is hot, then give it a few minutes for the oil and water to drain down from top of the engine into the oil sump. Then change the oil and oil filter. Good luck, hope you find the problem.

Is 5/40 fully synthetic oil ok for top up for a mini cooper 53 plate


Use whatever grade is printed in the user manual or on the oil cap. Synthetic and dinosaur oil can be interchanged as desired, but should not be intermixed. If you have high mileage, you could step up one grade. I.E OEM 5w/30, 120k miles you could use 5W/40.

My 1999 Honda Odyssey Van has ~ 205000 miles on


I'm surprised a dealership made that mistake. Honda did start making engines to take oil until around 2003. I would go back and have them put the correct oil in the van. 5W-20 is not as thick as 5w-30, so the engine may start to make louder noises down the road. Just stick with 5w-30 for what the engine was made for.
