Hi oilman!

which oil will you put in a '97 1.5D?

I've been using a synthetic 5W-50 and I think it's not necessary.

I'm from Barcelona (Spain), so a normal temperature in summer is 35ļC and in winter not less from 0ļC. Sometimes I go to warmer o cooler places (high mountain).

It is over kill a bit, a good 5w-40 or 10w-40 would be fine.

Even in your climate.

Cheers

Guy.

2002 vtr
62000

Just bought It so I'm not sure what sort of miles they are?.
Servicing before I start using it when I got it their wasn't much oil in to be honest. Bit lost when It comes To oil?. What would you suggest, it's only going to be used for pottering about maybe a little bit of motorway every now and then.
Thank's

10w-40 semi synthetic is fine with regular changes, as a top option have a look at a 5w-40 full synthetic.

Cheers

Guy.

Yes mate, that stuff is as good as it gets, a top ester/pao blend synthetic.

If you dont want to spend that kind of money then have a look at the service pack option which will be fine while the car is standard.

Cheers

Guy.

Hi,

10w-40 semi synthetic with regular changes is fine.

If you want to treat it then look at a 5w-40 full synthetic for all year round use.

Brand wise have a look at Fuchs, Motul and Silkolene.

Cheers

Guy.

Silkolene PRO S 5W-40 5L

May be a daft question, but would the above Oil be overkill in a little French
Hatch?
Reason I ask is cause if its a good oil to use on a 106 GTi 1.6 16v then it may
be ideal for me to start using it as I like to use only the best.
Car sees a few trackdays per year and is used now and again on the roads.

It could be considered over kill by some people, but if you want the best performance/protection then this is it.

Cheers

Guy.

I bought the silkoline, its very different tot he cheap mineral crap the previous owner put in before, its very fluid and looks like olive oil. The car warms up much much quicker now and it seems to run smoother.



Way I see it, its 45-50 quid a year, worth spending the extra if the engines gonna be protected. Service was rapid from Opie too

Cheers for asking that Rush

Agree with you there Ben, much better to spend money on decent Fully synthetic oil that will provide increased performance and protection that cheap mineral crap

Dont bother with slick50 next time, just an expensive way to block your oil filter, also no need to go as thick as an SAE50, SAE40 is fine and the 5w is ideal.

Cheers

Guy.

i like slick 50 makes it a lil quieter and the 50 is due to the fact i have used in 5 cars not just my own without problems so i stick with what i like
