Hi

what engine size is it? petrol or diesel? the oil for the most part is 15W40, are you looking for a brand of oil if so I would recommend Castrol or Mobil.

Regards

Dan

Most common oil used today is sae 5W30 this usually is recommended by manufacturer.However when you take your car in for an oil change most garages apply to that unless other wise advised.I think 5W30 is most suitable.

HOW MANY ENGIN OIL IN V6 3000 PEJARO


5 litres of oil with a new oil filter fitted. I own a Pajero, same car.

The oil filter is a pain to get to when changing it out for a new one. I have a few different oil filter change tools, the best in the case of your car is a thin band type.

I change the oil filter every oil change on all my vehicles. It is cheaper to spend an extra $10 every oil change than to rebuild the motor.

Go with the schedule oil change as listed in the hand book. Otherwise 10.000 klm or 6 months . Change at 5000klm if difficult conditions. Type of oil Conditions dictate if you use a multi grade 10/15w- 20/30/40/50 grade oil Again check the hand book Mineral oil will do just a good a job as the more expensive synthentic types As to brands that is you choice.

WHAT TYPE OF OIL IS BEST FOR MY ENGINE


Go by the manufacture's recommendation as far as type and weight. As far as brand, it is subjective. Any major brand should have the proper amount of additives. If you are trying to decide between synthetic and dino oil, either is good as long as you faithfully change them at the recommended intervals. With older vehicles, synthetics seem to "find leaks".

It could be. The best is just follow your instruction manual on what type the oil should used on your car. But since your car is has the year 2006, it should use specs. API... SL or SM. The viscosity will has range 5W30 -10W40. Again don't get be cheated by the newest oil products, The best oil for your car is the one recommended on your manual in many aspects.

Change oil


There's several answers to that question. The "best" oil is what the manufacturer recommends in the owner's manual. You can also make that decision based on several things including the type of driving you do, the temperature you most operate in, and personal preference. I have found that over the years simply using the recommended weight provides the best resutls.

Some folks use synthetic oil because they feel they get better performance. Personally I don't use synthetic oil in a car that didn't come from the factory with it. I've run several cars well over 200,000 miles by following the owner's manual without a hint of trouble.

Jaguar 2003 S Type Oil change. Where's the oil filter and drain plug and how's the best way to get to it?


you will need to remove the plastic undercarraige panel below the engine compartment to access filter & drain plug. I have the same model and change my oil about every 2k miles what I did to my first oil change was to cut access holes below the filter and drain plug to allow for fast/frequent oil changes. Not having to remove panel will save about 2 to 3 hours removing and reinstalling panel or will significantly save $ on oil changes jag dealer charges 100 a pop do it yourself for about 20$

Sentra 2008 2.0 model


It is best to get a proper garage or oil change specialist to change the oil, as it will void the warranty on such a new vehicle if you do it yourself. Also if you just want to top the oil up, best to call the dealer for the oil specification, or it should be in the handbook that came with the vehicle.
Hope this helps, Mark
