# I purchased my used 2000 pathfinder recently and I use it in the tropical region where average temperature is 30 degrees centigrade and it overheats anytime I'm caught up in a traffic for more than 5mins

That's not normal and i would say check your coolant level and the Thermostat,if its ok then check the head gasket for any leaks by doing a compression test. Good luck

### HI WHICH ENGINE OIL TYPE SHOULD I USE IN MY VW POLO 1987 THANK YOU

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.
