If changing your filter as well as the oil, your bike should take three quarts of oil as best as I know. Always check your oil using the dipstick when you change it. Change the oil and filter and add three quarts, start the engine and run it just a bit, two or three minutes. Check the oil level with the dipstick. The dipstick has two marks on it. The upper mark is 'FULL HOT" while the lower mark is 'FULL COLD'. Make sure your oil level is between the two marks and never overfill.

As for regular petroleum based oil or synthetic, you're 2001 machine came from the factory with H-D's Syn 3 20W50 synthetic oil in the engine, the primary, and the transmission. I'd recommend sticking with the synthetic oil but it must meet H-D's specification. Not all synthetics do. Matter of fact, very few do. Some that do is Amsoil, Royal Purple, and Mobil V-Twin.

Good Luck
Steve

What happens when you use regular oil instead of synthetic oil in 2007 dodge ram v6


nothing
synthetic oil is good but it has the same problem as ordinary oil
the additives in the oil are all used up and no longer do what they are there for
neutralizing acidity from combustion
keeping moisture in suspension,retaining tensile strength in the oil film and a host of other additives used to promote longer engine life
regular oil is cheaper so more regular oil changes can be afforded( every 5000 miles )
forget the myth that oil doesn't have to be changed for 12 months or 20000 miles
oil is the most vital component in an engine so changing often is for longer engine life
as a point of interest , when you pull into a shop for a service the oil you will get is ordinary engine oil because if synthetic oil was used , you would scream at the bill and not go back there unless you specifically ask for synthetic oil
simple economics and business sense
more costly than anywhere else = no business

Oil capacity of a 2.5 tdi nissan np300


During regular service of NP300 takes 4.3 liters of engine oil. Nissan NP300 really needs high quality motor oil. Lots of Nissan vehicles produced in 2009 had 2.5 motor under the hood. Having model code YD25DDTi this engine should be filled up with Synthetic 5w30 type of oil. Choosing normal Synthetic 5w30 oil for NP300 2.5 engine you ensure its long lasting work.

This is the same info for your 08 model. Please make sure to use 5w~30 full synthetic. Mobil 1 or Castrol.

Can I use traditional oil after using synthetic?


Many people think that we cannot move our motor lubrication from Artificial to standard. But it is not more than a belief. Yes we can take a move from synthetic to standard motor lubrication and synthetic engine oil is suitable with the normal lubricants. But artificial lubrication gives top rated guarantee of engine actually more than conventional lubrication.

What type of oil does a 2002 jaguar x-type take? I was never given a manual.


The car takes 5w-30 semi synthetic oil. However, if you have never put synthetic oil in the car I would recommend using regular oil. I would also advise you check with your local jaguar dealer. The reason for this is if your car is not use to that kind of oil from day one it could cause seal leaks.

What synthetic oil is the best one to get for my 1999 lexus gs 300


AMSOIL or Mobil 1 synthetic oils. Either one. AMSOIL claims to be the best but...in order to meet the standards "all" manufacturers of synthetic oils have to have the minimum oil content mixture to achieve the quality standards.

SJ or SL or ILSAC 5W-30 is the manufacturers recommended engine oil.

What kind of oil can i use in my 1999 gs 300 is synthetic oil better or jus use regular oil which do u perfer?


Synthetic oil is better than carbon based oil because it is cleaner,lasts longer,more efficient & wont leave carbon build up like conventional oil. But if you ran regular oil for quite awhile, your engine will have carbon build up. Synthetic oil breaks up the buildup. That is good. Bad thing is sometimes that buildup is keeping you from leaking or burning oil. If you switch to synthetic oil keep an eye on oil consumption. If you start using or leaking it out of gaskets or seals, you will need to get it out & put in regular oil. If not, you can go longer between oil changes & your engine will run more efficiently for a longer period of time.

Can i switch from regular engine oil to synthetic oil as long as i get the appropriate filter


To switch from regular oil to synthetic is not a problem. After you run synthetic, however, it is not good to go back to regular oil. Synthetic oil is and will continue to be more expensive then regular oil, if this isn't a sacrifice your willing to take, don't make the switch. Good Luck!

Synthetic or stay with regular oil ?


I would not change to synthetic. The Paseo engine is not designed for it, and the benefit of synthetic oil will not be realized. Save your money, and stay with the regular oil.
