In the summer you can use SAE 30, in cooler weather you should use 10w-30.

What grade oil I use on my 2475f12.5g

You need compressor oil which does not have detergents. Don't use thin motor oil it may lessen the life of the compressor. I don't think a grade is generally specified although its around a 20 grade
here are some examples Compressor Oil

I have a craftsman blower /vacum 29cc 4 cycle 425 cfm ? would like to know if you use 2 cycle oil in the gas or is this a gas only unit , second question is there is an oil port on the back of the motor...

Hi lindseyhpaint...
DO NOT MIX OIL WITH GAS ON A FOUR CYCLE ENGINE use gasoline only, the oil will go into the oil port on the back of the motor with an oil level line (crankcase).
You will need a good grade of 10W30 to use in the crankcase.

My 95 lancruiser is making a loud ticking noise when cold, it seems to diminish after driven for a bit - what can this be?

Motor oil thickens when cold- on very cold days, some grades of motor oil can be nearly the consistency of honey. It takes time for the oil to make its way from the oil pan to the top of your engine.

The ticking you hear is usually caused by the valve lifters running nearly "dry" - meaning that they are getting very little oil. As your Cruiser warms up, the oil thins and makes it "up top" much easier, so the noise decreases.

Make sure that you are following your manufacturers recommendation for the grade and viscosity of oil (example: SG SAE 10W30) for the temperatures you are operating your car in. In extreme cold weather environments, such as Chicago or Milwaukee, you may want to use an even "lighter" oil (example: 10W20 instead of 10W30) - you just have to be certain that when spring arrives, you go with the higher viscosity oil- your manufacturer normally covers this info. The grade (example: SG) is very important because it refers to the detergent content of your oil.

No vehicle manufacturer that I am aware of recommends a "straight grade" viscosity oil (example: SAE 30) in cold weather. Multi-grades, which act "lighter" in cold weather are called for.

The "W" in the oil viscosity designation means "winter" - it is the viscosity of that particular oil at 0 degrees F..... For example, "10W30" oil is as thick as an oil with a viscosity of 10 at 0 degrees F, and is as thick as an oil with a viscosity of 30 at 70 degrees F.

Pretty Cool, Huh?

It is not a good idea to use any oil thickening additive (STP, motor honey, etc...) in cold weather because they tend to add even more viscosity.

"The Court is out" regarding teflon additives such as "Slick 50" to your oil- the principle sounds good to me, and I have used them myself. Personally, a similar product has seemed to help tone down the "startup ticking" I myself have experienced.

How often do you change the motor oil? The motor oil filter? The automatic transmission oil and filter? What type of motor oil should be used?

Oil change recommended is every 3,000miles / 5000km for local short running around. If you clock up the miles quickly then extend the oil changes to 6,000miles /10,000km
Oil filter is every second oil change.
Use reputable multi grade oil 15W/40 or similar, Do not use standard SAE 30 single grade oil. You do not need to use synthetic / semi-synthetic oils either.

Recommended Brand and Grade of Engine Oil for Toyota 4K Engine

If you use a Toyota 4K engine, most manufacturers both engine and oil companies recommend a 20W-50 GRADE motor oil. We recommend Castrol. However, Castrol is kinda expensive. Try Petron Philippines products that can be purchased at their gasoline station shops. Castrol ranges from 800-850 (4-liters) while Petron oil products ranges from 490-550 only (4 liters). They both share the same addtives for 20W-50 oil grade.

Depends on the tempurate where you live,

see this link for some great info:


Viscosity ratings for commonly used motor oils typically range from 0 up to 50. A "W" after the number stands for "Winter" grade oil, and represents the oil's viscosity at zero degrees F.
Low viscosity motor oils that pour easily at low temperatures typically have a "5W" or "10W" rating. There are also 15W and 20W grade motor oils.
Higher viscosity motor oils that are thicker and better suited for high temperature operation typically have an SAE 30, 40 or even 50 grade rating.
These numbers, by the way, are for "single" or "straight" weight oils. Such oils are no longer used in late model automotive engines but may be required for use in some vintage and antique engines. Straight SAE 30 oil is often specified for small air-cooled engines in lawnmowers, garden tractors, portable generators and gas-powered chain saws.

Basically for your car I would run 5W-30, this keeps you covered in warm and cold climates, 10w-30 is the best choice if you live in a climate with temperatures that never go below 0degre''s Farenheight.

Hope this helps
