Look in your owners manual under maintenance. the type of oil should be printed on the oil fill cap. and the type of filter can be looked up at any good auto parts store

I have an Isuzu 280 turbo diesel. On cold starts the engine is a lot noisier than usual. After a couple of minutes it suddenly quiets down and then runs normal. A friend told me his Isuzu did the more...


It sounds like you need to switch to a lower viscosity oil. Something like a 10w-30 or a 10w-40 grade oil and change it & filter every 3k. Re: your friends issue - it's not common at all.

My daughter tells me that the mechanic at a garage in town tells her that the OIL FILTER doesn't have to be changed.Is that correct???


If it has an oil filter that can be removed, then it has to be changed at least every other oil change. Better repace with every oil change. Some modern cars as some european sedans (bmw and mercedes) as well as some fancy corvettes and probably vipers, do not have external oil filters and do not even have a dipstick. On this cars, the oil is special to be changed every 30 top 50 thousand miles, but even on this vehicles, there is an internal oil filter that also has to be replaced.

My 1986 jaguar xj6 vanden plaz have tappet noise.how do i corect it?


How loud is it, did it suddenly get loud? they should have a light noise if gapped correct, easy to check, the covers come off with about 11 7/16 nuts, slide a feeler gauge blade a  few thou less than the specs under the cam when the lobe is pointing up, a few thou bug is fine but if it gets to 6 or more it will be noisy, look for a wearing cam if one gap is big, also check the chains for slop.If you are in the UK the library can get Haynes manuals in, keep it clean for them!
