There's several answers to that question. The "best" oil is what the manufacturer recommends in the owner's manual. You can also make that decision based on several things including the type of driving you do, the temperature you most operate in, and personal preference. I have found that over the years simply using the recommended weight provides the best resutls.

Some folks use synthetic oil because they feel they get better performance. Personally I don't use synthetic oil in a car that didn't come from the factory with it. I've run several cars well over 200,000 miles by following the owner's manual without a hint of trouble.

Whats the easiest way to install a steering rack boot for a 96 mits galant gt sports, I am having issues trying to get the big end of the boot over the steering rack


Make sure they sold you the correct part if you are installing a new boot. It you are reinstalling the old boot make sure you have removed the clamp that secures the boot once in place.

Also use this webpage and the search feature; http://www.thegalantcenter.net/forum.php this is a great resource for Mits Galant owners.

Oil Leaks I have an 2003 Mits. Galant GTZ...with117K miles. My question is, i've noticed oil spots on the ground under the car, a burning smell when i've driven along with smoke. In addition to a squealing...


the seal will gradually start leaking more as time goes by and needs to be replaced, but in the mean time if u keep the oil full and it does not go below low line on dipstick you can drive with no engine damage. sometimes adding oil leak additive to oil will help , using a slightly heavier oil during warm weather will often help reduce oil loss and give you more time to get enough money to replace seal. If engine gets too low on oil it will cause major engine damage.

Sentra 2008 2.0 model


It is best to get a proper garage or oil change specialist to change the oil, as it will void the warranty on such a new vehicle if you do it yourself. Also if you just want to top the oil up, best to call the dealer for the oil specification, or it should be in the handbook that came with the vehicle.
Hope this helps, Mark
