Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

Can you advise the engine oil for my 1999 4.0 S-Type Jaguari have the original manual which states API SJ /EC and ACEA A1-98 ORA3-98. I only need to top up but I'm not sure whetther it should be synthetic or not. I live in Bulgaria and the local oil seller (nice bloke) wanted to be sure.......and so do I. The car runs like a dream and although serviced in the Main Dealer (super expensive) I'd prefer to do as much regular stuff as I can

Hi,
Most oil companies for example Shell, Mobil, Caltex etc have websites where you can look (or ask) what oil you should use for your car.
The other option is to visit a Jaguar users group on the internet.
Look for the answer or post the question. I think any Jaguar group will fall over themselves rushing to help with answering your question.
Happy cruising in your Jag!

I need an oil change and I cant find an oil that has SG in the label. What should I use?


You can use oil with an API rating of at least SG and therefore can use today's oils with an SN rating. The API service rating is basically a classification assigned to signify the oil's ability to reduce friction and oil consumption, improve emissions, and provide better lubrication. The API ratings are backwards compatible, but not vice versa, meaning SN will work for SG but SJ will not work for SM.

Can anybody tell me the correct type and weight of oil a 2004 volvo xc 90 uses also # for replacment oil filter


Oil filter is provided by year,make, model of your vehicle at the parts store. ---
Oil and fluids Oil quality
Engine oil must meet the minimum ILSAC specification GF-2, including ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF and SJ/Energy Conserving.
Your Volvo has been certified to standards using ILSAC oil specification GF-2 5W-30. Volvo recommends use of oil with a quality rating equal to or higher than ILSAC GF-2. Equivalent and better oils include ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF, and SJ/Energy conserving. Lower quality oils may not offer the same fuel economy, engine performance, or engine protection.
Volvo Cars recommends Castrol. Depending on your driving habits, premium or synthetic oils may provide superior fuel economy and engine protection. Consult your Volvo retailer for recommendations on premium or synthetic oils. Oil additives must not be used. NOTE: Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance is carried out. This oil is only used at customer request, at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer. Operation in hot climates.
When temperatures exceed 86° F (30° C) in your area, Volvo recommends, for the protection of your engine, that you use a heavier weight oil, such as SAE 10W-30. See the viscosity chart below. pg129a.jpg Oil viscosity (stable ambient temperatures)
Operation in temperate climates
Incorrect viscosity oil can shorten engine life. Under normal use when temperatures do not exceed 86° F (30° C), SAE 5W-30 will provide good fuel economy and engine protection. See the viscosity chart above. Extreme engine operation
Synthetic oils meeting SAE 10W-30 and complying with oil quality requirements are recommended for driving in areas of sustained temperature extremes (hot or cold), when towing a trailer over long distances, and for prolonged driving in mountainous areas. Changing oil and oil filter
Oil and oil filter changes should be made at 7,500 mile (12,000 km) intervals. Volvo does not recommend the use of oil additives.
Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance intervals except at ower request and at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer.
