He can use semi or full synthetic, does not matter.

5w-40 synthetic would be the quality choice, or if he really doesnt want a synthetic a 10w-40 semi synthetic.

Cheers

Hi,

You will need 3.5ltr for the engine and 2ltr for the gearbox.

Cheers

Guy.

If you want the best have a look at the ester based 5w-40 synthetics such as the Silkolene Pro S, Motul 300v.

If you dont want to spend that kind of money have a look at the fuchs titan supersyn 5w-40 and the Motul 8100 5w-40.

For the gearbox we recomend 75w-80 or 75w-90 semi or full synthetic.

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

For a mix of both road and track a 5w-40 synthetic is ideal, have a look at Fuchs, Motul and Silkolene.

Hi,

I have a Citroen AX GTI, running a VTS Engine, 4-1manifold, straight through exhaust, CAI, no cat...

Every so often when running the car(2nd car) it goes a bit tappety for a min or so, normally after having a blast... no i belive this could be the cam followers (being lazy!) and not filling up right... She's due for an oil change, so firstly do you think it's just dirty, cheap oil causing this and what would be recommended?

Also would you suggest an engine flush and how do you carry these out?

Cheers,

Dom

5w-40 synthetic, as above if you want the best then ester based are it such as the Silkolene Pro S and the Motul 300v but you dont have to go that far if you dont want, half way ground are the synthetics of the Motul 8100 and the Fuchs Titan Supersyn.
