Is it 10W-40 or 15W-40 Engine oil for 1998 Nissan Bluebird. Many Thanks Suman Roy


Either one will not damage the engine. If there is less than 50,000 miles on it then stick with 10W40. Higher mileage engines will do better on 15W40

No oil pressure, ticking motor


Possibly a failed oil pump. Check engine oil level first.Make sure it is at least to the safe zone on your engine dipstick. if the motor has not had regular oil changes ( i change mine every 3000 miles like clock work) the oil can sludge and clog oil passages and pickup screen to oil pump.

In my 1991 f150 5.0 motor if I replace the sending unit on my truck and the oil pressure gauge still reads low, what would be the next step


The next step would be to try another mechanical guage to confirm the pressure. If it is still low, then it is time to consider upgrading your oil. I imagine you are using either 10W-30 or 5W-30 so now is the time to move up 10W-40 or 15W-40, maybe even 20W-50. This will help bring your oil pressure back up and provide lubrication to the engine.
Bear in mind tho, your engine is telling you that it is wearing out and you should give some thought to what happens next.

I need to change my car engine oil what you


Hi,
10w-40 is a good oil.
If your Mercedes has a lot of wear on the engine 15w-40 will stay in a while longer.
Enjoy,

Hi i would just like to know what oil i can use in my 1989 toyota surf its a turbo diesel the manual says to use a sae 20w/40 cd or better but when i went to buy oil they sold me a 15w -40 api ch-4 is this...


Hi Sarah,

The 15W-40 apiCH-4 oil will be fine for your 4Runner. It is "better", and here is why....

Your new oil being "ch" grade vs "cd" meets the qualification of "better" grade oil. Oil detergents are constantly being modified and as the letters climb alphabetically, each higher letter means that the oil exceeds the requirements of the grade before it. The "-4" is a designation I do not recognize, so I have some more reading to do. It may just mean that you bought a 4 quart (or liter) container or package, but no matter what it represents, this oil is still better.
The "15W-40" designation means that at 0 degrees F or below, the oil behaves as if it is 15 weight oil, and at operating temperatures, it acts like 40 weight oil. This formulation is designed to make cold weather starting easier, since the oil will be "thinner". Since your new oil is still rated as 40 weight at operating temperatures, just like the manual specifies, You should do fine with it.
Make sure you check your oil level once a week, since your 4Runner has a few years on it, it may be "burning" more oil from normal engine wear.
It is very important to change your oil regularly, especially with a diesel engine. The oil picks up allot of contaminants and it gets dirty very fast in a diesel. Follow the oil change schedule in your manual, and you will be good2go!
Thank You for using FixYa!

1997 F-350 Ford Powerstroke4x4 Crew Cab Diesel 83k miles. Truck runs fine while cold. When it starts reaching normal operating temp it starts missing and loosing power when accelerating. Truck idles fine....


Have you changed your oil? Rotella 15W-40. These engines really don't like old oil. It becomes too thick for the injection pump to work correctly. Another possibility is a bad cam sensor on the front of the motor. Most engines call this the crank sensor but on this engine you have to look it up as a cam sensor.
