What kind of oil does it use?


Hi Tami.

The answer will depend quite a bit on the type of vehicle you're talking about. For many newer cars, if you pop the hood, the oil fill cap will likely say what type of oil is supposed to be used. If you have the owners manual, there is probably a section toward the end with 'capacities and measures' that will say things like type of oil and how much is used in an oil change.

Hope that helped!

What type of oil does a 2002 jaguar x-type take? I was never given a manual.


The car takes 5w-30 semi synthetic oil. However, if you have never put synthetic oil in the car I would recommend using regular oil. I would also advise you check with your local jaguar dealer. The reason for this is if your car is not use to that kind of oil from day one it could cause seal leaks.

What is the best type of engine oil for a lincoln LS


The best oil is the Synthetic type oil that one can get through Walmart or an auto parts store.
However, if the car hasn't been using synthetic type, it's a good idea to creep up on it using a mixture of synthetic and regular oil.

However, I have a couple of Cadillac Devilles that use regular oil and I've never had any problems with it.

I wouldn't use synthetic unless there is a sticker that specifically says to use it under the hood.

Most American cars don't need synthetic.

Some Porsches, BMW's, Mercedes Benz and higher end performance cars recommend synthetic for use all of the time.
Good luck on choosing the best grade of oil for your Lincoln LS.

The transfer case uses two types of oil one is automatic fluid the front part of differential takes gear oil 85/120 wt. both differentials I would use synthetic oil and would run 85/120 however if the rig has been well used you might want to go with a higher weight oil oil so you don't get wheel seal leaks.
