No need to use a flush if you use a quality oil synthetic as they keep things nice and clean.

If you do feel a flush is needed dont use an additive, just use engine oil.

Cheers

I would use a good 15w-50 semi synthetic, something like the Motul 6100 15w-50 or a full synthetic thats good for lder vehicles such as the Silkolene Pro R 15w-50.

Cheers

Guy.

5w-40 full synthetic for the engine as tops, for the auto box an ATF Dexron II or Dexron III is ideal.

Plenty to look at on my site.

Cheers

Guy.

No as tops I mean its the best, to top up you need something similar to what is already in there.

Cheers

Just drop the old oil and replace it if you're not sure

Cheers

Erik,

The Mobil 1 5w-50 is fine, will also be fine with an SAE40 too.

What other brands do you have available to you out there?

Cheers

Guy.

Guy,

I can get basicaly every oil brand on this windswept and wet rock i call home,
the only problem is the high oil prices i Norway.

Motul and castrol oils start from £15 a litre, because they are special import oils....

Btw, i change my oil and filter every 10.000km
And the oil use of the car is next to nothing.

Erik

Erik,

If you want the daddy, Motul 300v as this is an ester based oil = the very best just like Silkolene.

Cheers

Guy.
