What engine oil mk triton 3.0 ltr v6

i do understand that this is your first question, but there is several countries which drive cars... from tropics to arctic - and all these cars use oil... oil depend on temperature, that is dictated by climate... what year is your car, what model, what fuel - all these variables affect which oil you use...

do rethink your question, state what year, model, fuel and climate you are living in...

i would suggest going to mitsubishi site and research there...

What oil do i put in a 1996 ford courier 2.6 petrol

you did not post in what country and what climate,

if you are in oz, then any oil sae10-40, it is suitable year round,

if you live somewhere where water freeze in winter then winter oil should be sae 5-30, or sae5-40, summer should be sae 10-40,

if you live in tropics where temperature constantly exceed 35c (95f), then oil used should be sae15-60 or even sae20-60.

any brand will do, my preference is semi-synthetics in cars made after 1985, if car is working hard - towing, driving daily short distances - i do change oil and oil filter every 5000km (3000miles), if it is driven regularly and in light conditions you can double these distances.

if you find this answer helpful - why do not vote for it?

What kinda used car do you suggest i buy for use in a tropical country?

Just because you live in a tropical country doesn't mean that you have to narrow your choices. It can be any vehicle you can own and drive and it could preferably be an AWD for instance if you'd prefer.

You can take a look at the offerings here if you wish - Good Used Cars There are a variety of cars to choose from and also 4WD and AWD vehicles too.

I live in Belize and it is very hot here as it is the tropical. What type of coolant is the best to use in order to keep the engine cool.

Hi there well i dont know what brands you have down there but you want to use 50-50 50% water and 50% coolant, and as long you dont have a leak, radiator, hose, water pump, etc your termostat and the cooling fan(s) work good, the computer will do its work. to keep the engine at operating temperature. hope this will help.

I'm put oil for Mator 20/50 and for break dot 4 and I dont known if good or not for toyota corrolla 93

That oil is for tropical regions so it's a little too viscous if you live on a cold country or in winter - recommended is 10W40. The recommended brake fluid is DOT 3. Remove the one you have now and put in the correct one.

I have a 1987 MK 2 Golf and because of the age of the engine I use a multi grade SAE 20 W 50 body oil (Not synthetic) . I however live in the tropics so I can get away with that. If you live in the temperate region you could use a multigrade oil like 10 W 30.
Please note that the lower the temperature where you might live the lower should be the first number....for example if your temperatures go down to 5 degrees Celsius then you may want to get a lower rating like 5 W 30.
You can also confirm this at the service station and see what might be the best grade of oil to use.

What weight oil should I use in my 1995 Toyota 4Runner V6? I live in a tropical climate year round, avg. temp 80-90, if that makes a difference.

The proper oil for your Toyota is API 'SG' or 'SH" 10 w 30. And yes, the climate does make a difference it the oil weight. If you drove it where the temp was 50degrees or lower, it would require 5 w 30.
