That's a good idea because it's probably got a few extra miles on it & it will use less oil that way.

Can I use synthetic oil in my 1994 lexus ES300? If so what kind would you recommend?


Any engine can use synthetic oil. I would reccomend using a popular brand like castrol syntec that you can find anywhere. Also you need to make sure that you never go back to using regular oil. It's synthetic or nothing!

What oil should i use for my W reg ford fiesta finesse 1.3


You can use either a full synthetic blend oil 5W30 or 5W40, and even a semi synthetic blend oil 10W40.
If you have the last invoice for service , it should state which grade of oil was used, or you can check under the bonnet to see if they put a service sticker or tag , showing which oil they used.
Hope this helps

How often do I need to change the synthetic oil in a 2003 jetta tdi? and what grade of oil is best?


Change it every 10k miles. You have to use 5W40 FULL SYNTHETIC oil. Not just any oil! You can buy Shell Rotella T 5w40 or Mobil1 5w40 Turbo Diesel Truck oil at Walmart. Both of these oils meet VW's TDI oil requirements.

Oil usage


Hi there,

I would suggest using a full synthetic, 5W40. I would use a oil system cleaner, prior to the oil change. let it run in vehicle for 10 - 15 mins or so in the old oil, then i would do the change over, to the synthetic 5w40
