Jay,

Your not going to find this grade, but another may well be suitable. What engine is it and what year roughly?

Cheers

Guy.

Yes with the Pro S and Pro R it is just a viscosity difference.

I usually recomend synthetic 75w-90.

Cheers

Guy.

He will need a GL4 74w-90, if you wanna go top notch look at synthetics such as the Silkolene Syn5 75w-90, Redline etc.

Whats the best oil for a 2001 Saxo 1.1 Desire?

Also does it need a specific anti freeze?

Cheers

10w-40 semi synthetic is fine, for anitfreeze you dont need anything special. A universal antifreeze will be fine.

Cheers

Guy.

Fully synthetics are better, if you want to use one go fo a 5w-40. The advantages are they protect better and last longer then the mineral based oil.

Cheers

Guy.

Plenty to choose from here http://www.opieoils.co.uk

Have a look at Fuchs and Motul for good quality/price.

Cheers

5w-40 synthetic if you want the best.

10w-40 semi changed twice as often if your on a budget.

Cheers

Guy.

If you want the best then 5w-40 synthetic, the best of these are the ester based synthetics, they do come at cost but are worth every penny.

Have a look at Silkolene Pro S and the Motul 300v here http://www.opieoils.co.uk

Cheers

Guy.
