    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.

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.

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.

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.

What does SERVICE warninglight mean?

The spanner symbol usually pops up at the recommended service interval for the engine.
A. standard service would include change of Engine oil, oil filter, air filter and possibly plugs.
All other major components and fluids should be checked at this point too, and replaced if needed.
Oil and filters is the minimum to ensure trouble free motoring.

My 97 excel has a rather loud ticking noise coming from the engine does anyone know what it is and how to fix it?

Check the oil! A ticking noise is most commonly a sign that there's a lack of oil running through the motor. Start the car and listen for general vicinity of the ticking noise. If the oil is fine and the noise is coming from the engine, there are oil additives that will quiet the noise. Ticking is also a sign of an old motor (guessing you have about 150K on this car) I hope this helps clarify your problem and wish you well with your car. All the best!
p.s. Please don't hesitate to post back regarding this issue or any other questions!
