SOURCE: what type oil do you recommend for a 2000 chevy

Personally I prefer synthetics for quite a number of reasons, unless you have an engine that is using lots of oil, either burning or leaking.
Oil grade is important. the first number is the pour point at 0 degrees the second is the protection offered at running temp (usually at 220 degrees) With a synthetic though, most times the numbers do not reflect the reality that the oil flows and protects at a far lower and higher temp than indicated on the container. Additionally, it does not break down into gunk, even when contaminated or left in far longer than recommend change intervals.
Scientific tests such as noac volatility tests bear this out as well as the longevity of everything I've used it in: 350K or better from every engine I've had, and still running well when I sold them!
As an "everything" grade, I'd use a 10w or 20w oil with a second number of 40 or 50. You can "google" noac test results for more info.
Good luck!

SOURCE: what grade of oil does my 2000 chevy prism use?

Since this is actually a Toyota engine, you're fine with 10w 30 or 10w 40 depending on the mileage of the vehicle. 10w 40 for 100,000 or more.

Is the oil in my peugeot 206 quicksilver 10w40 synthetic or semi synthetic oil ?, thanks.


It does not matter because the engine can run on either and if you need to top up the oil level you can use either as you can mix the oils. If changing the oil use full synthetic.

Preferably only use fully synthetic and only use the grade specified by the manufacturer. There are various oils of the same grade formulated for different engines so check before buying and only use the one suitable for the Renault engine in your car.

The important issue with your engine oil is to have it changed regularly. Whatever the manufacturer states as the change interval (such as every 10000) half it and do it at 5000. Manufacturer recommended change intervals assume absolutely ideal operating conditions for the engine which few owners will ever run there cars at. Most owners are running there cars in severe conditions with lots of cold starts, short runs, stop /start in traffic and so on. These are sever conditions for engine lubrication, the oil deteriorates faster, is more contaminated and needs to be changed more frequently.

Oil dipstick


If the oil is drained, and refilled to the manufacturers recommended capacity, get any dipstick that will fit and register the oil, then make a mark on that stick at the oil level. D.I.Y. replacement. Not having a dipstick does not stop you from changing the oil, contaminated oil will do more damage, than a little to much oil.

Which is better: to change the oil every 5,000 miles or when the message: "change oil" appears on the dashboard?


If it is synthetic oil,it depends on what you used.Some are good up to 12K miles.If it is the synthetic and the normal change is at 5K,that should be fine.I am not sure if it is a pre-programmed refernce from the odometer which will turn on the light,but the only alternative would be something which would be able to measure the viscosity of the oil(yet another current unnecessary component to fail in the new technology age,like a check engine light),but I do not think or at least hope that it does not exist.You could call a dealer to see what makes that light come on if you want but if you have 5K oil,5K oil change is fine,if you have 12K oil,12K oil change is fine.Just check your oil level every 750-1,000 miles.
Good luck! Greg

I need to know what the towing capacity is for my 2000 chevy silverado half ton is?


Tow capacity for that vehicle is about 10.000 lbs (adjusted for wear and age). This number reflects max tow capacity with good tires (proper rating and good condition) with all suspension components in good used condition. The capacity of your tow hitch must also match your load and assumes proper trailer weight distribution and tongue weight.
For best results, I also recommend that you use a good quality synthetic gear lube in the differential and synthetic fluid in the transmission, as well as a trans cooler if not so equipped.

What type of oil for a 2006 saturn vue - regular, blend or full synthetic?


Use manufacture recommended oil Wt. and rating (Conventional or syn.) Syn. oils allow for longer change intervals, but may not be recommend by manufacture to extend interval. So if it is still under warranty save some money and stay with the Manufacture recommendation conventional oil unless they specify Syn.oil.So as to not void warranty. If out of warrenty Syn. oils can have longer interval between oil change. Dose it effect or have any other real improvement in normal cars???? not really ...for the cos ..No. Is toilet water wetter then sink water?

What is the capacity of the transfer case and exactly what fluid do i use


GM Full-Size Trucks 1980-1987 Repair Guide

Transfer Case - FLUID RECOMMENDATIONS
The type of lubricant used in the transfer case varies with model year and type of transfer case. Refer to the list below for the type that applies to your truck.

1980
Conventional transfer cases require SAE 80W or SAE 80W-90 GL-5 gear lubricant.
Full time systems use SAE 10W-30 or 10W-40 engine oil.
1981
Conventional transfer cases require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.
1982-85
All transfer cases require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.
1986-87
All transfer cases except the K30/35 series require DEXRON®II transmission fluid.

For fluid recommendations for the K30/35 transfer cases refer to the owner's manual.
LEVEL CHECKS

fb6e8b4.jpg
Fig. Model 208 Transfer Case

Check the four wheel drive transfer case lubricant level every 4 months or 6,000 miles.
  1. With the truck parked on a level surface and the parking brake firmly applied, remove the filler plug from the rear of the transfer case (behind the transmission). Be careful not to take out the drain plug at the bottom.
  2. If lubricant trickles out, there is enough. If not, carefully insert a finger and check that the level is up to the edge of the hole, EXCEPT in full time four wheel drive cases should be 1 /2 in. below the hole.
Lubricant may be added, if necessary, with a funnel and tube, or a squeeze bulb.



DRAIN AND REFILL
Part Time Systems
No intervals are specified for changing transfer case lubricant, but it is a good idea for trucks that are worked hard or driven in deep water.
  1. With the transfer case warmed up, park on a level surface and apply the parking brake.
  2. Slide a pan of a least 6 pts. capacity under the case drain plug.
  3. Remove the filler plug from the rear of the transfer case (behind the transmission). Remove the drain plug from the bottom.
  4. Wipe the area clean and replace the drain plug.
  5. Add lubricant with a suction gun or squeeze bulb. Conventional transfer cases require SAE 80W-90 GL-5 Gear Lubricant.
  6. When the lubricant level is up to the bottom of the filler hole, replace the plug.
Full Time Four Wheel Drive
The full time system requires oil changes at regular intervals, according to the amount and type of work done by the unit. Trucks used for normal on-off road work should have the transfer case oil changed at 24,000 mile intervals. When used for heavy duty work, trailer towing, snowplowing, and the like, the interval should be halved to 12,000 miles. If the truck is exposed to extremely dusty or muddy conditions, the oil should be changed at 1,000 mile intervals.
The transfer case oil must be hot before changing. Drive the truck until the engine has reached normal operating temperature, and park on a level surface.
  1. Slide a pan of at least 8 pts. capacity under the case drain plug.
  2. Remove the filler plug.
  3. Remove the lowest bolt from the front output shaft rear bearing retainer cover, and allow the lubricant to drain. Be careful; the oil will be hot. There may be a drain plug. If so, remove that instead.
  4. Remove the six bolts on the left (driver's) side of the case which secure to P.T.O. (power take-off) cover. Remove this cover and allow the lubricant to drain out.
  5. Remove the speedometer driven gear from the upper left rear corner of the case.
  6. Use a suction gun to remove as much lubricant as possible from the case cover location and the speedometer gear location.
  7. Install the speedometer driven gear, the P.T.O. cover, and the lowest bolt or drain plug.
  8. Add approximately seven pints of oil through the filler plug opening. The proper oil to use is 10W-30 or 10W-40 engine oil.
  9. Check the fluid level and add sufficient oil to raise the level to 1 /2 in. below the filler plug opening. Replace the plug, and wipe the surfaces of the case and skid plate to remove any excess oil. Drive the truck and check for leaks.

I really hope help ypou woth this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

How often do I change the oil in my new Lincoln MKX ...every 2000 km or every 5000 km?


The owner's manual calls for changing oil and filter every 7500 miles in normal service, or if driving in dusty conditions, offroad, or lots of low speed and idling (a taxi or maybe an unlucky commuter), go to the extreme service intervals of 5000 miles. Changing oil every 3000 miles is definitely NOT required.
