    Thank you so it doesn't have to be synthetic? I had asked for and paid for a synthetic last oil change and they gave me a blend. wasn't sure.

Any major brand is ok (Pennsoil, Quaker state etc.), use 10W-30W

    at 150K do not use synthetic, it would be a waste of money at $7.00 a quart.

Volvo oil trap recall

If Volvo customer service deny there is a recall it is possibly something that has been misreported or misunderstood or perhaps it doesn't apply to vehicles in your country or region.
If in doubt I suggest you contact a motoring forum or a motoring organisation or any big newspaper or magazine with interests in consumer rights and/or motoring.

When to replace volvo v50 wagon timing belt?

I believe it's every 80k. Just do it if you don't know when it was done last , these are non-tolerence motors and you will do damage to the valves if you break the belt in motion.

Adjust rear brakes

This will not cause the problem even if filled with engine oil ,no you have another problem here like corrosion or a flexible brake pipe with a internal collapse ,maybe even a faulty master cylinder which is a tandem type .So have a good look or enlist the services of a local mechanic .

Oil pressure low at idle

Are you sure the gauge is reading correct? You also didn't mention how many miles the vehicle has. If it's less than 150k I would doubt the motor it worn out, (excessive bearing clearance would cause poor oil pressure even with high volume pump). Chevy's have a lot of issues in the dash with the motors that make the individual gauges work. I would check the oil pressure with a manual gauge. If you don't have the skills to do this yourself, a qualified shop wouldn't charge much to do it. If you find that the gauge is incorrect, there is a guy in MN that rebuilds the instrument cluster for $65 with all new stepper motors (the motors that work the gauges) and replacement of all the bulbs, plus gives it a lifetime guarantee.

What kind of motor oil do I put in my high mileage 2000 Mitsubishi Moontero Sport?

5w30 is best, if you are over 150k then you may want to add a bit (half a bottle) of Lucas oil treatment.

Had a faulty oil filter put in by Jiffy Lube. Low oil pressure light came on after about 2000 miles into oil change. Jiffy Lube stated it was a faulty oil filter and replaced it. Drove off and light...

I can tell you that it sounds like someone is trying to take you for a ride.. I've been a mechanic for 28 years. And I've never heard of o rings going bad on a motor that only has 56000 miles. Change the oil filter again.. make sure that it's not a fram.. gram filters have been known to cause your oil pressure light come on. Hope this helps you.

I have a 2000 volvo s80 the cluster stop working ,the car runs and the check engine turns on thats all but if i take the cluster fuse and put it back it will work for a few sec and then it will stop...

To repair your cluster you can google a company called XeMoDex, or you can find a *same year* S80 in the junk yard and take the cluster from that and hope it's ok.

The thing is that the car will generally show whatever the highest mileage is - whether it's in your car's computer or in the new cluster. If your car has 100K miles and the junk yard cluster has 150K miles, it will show 150K miles.
