Re: GT Oil
Hi everyone. I've been having issues with my GT JTS for some 1.5yrs now. I'm getting a very very jerky ride when moving off and especially in jams. I literally get jerks and a 'thud' sound at times when the clutch has engaged slightly (upon slight accerlerator depress) The car was fine when it was new and after various work done on it, the car became unpleasent to drive (very jerky).
My question here would be if the oil (they have been using shell 5W-40, if i'm not mistaken) they have been using has caused my cams to wear and thus, i'm getting a rather jerky ride? I've heard of cams wearing out (who ever wears their cams on normal usage?) prematurely at around 60k KM if i'm not mistaken.
My Engine also runs rather erratic, as if its misfiring at times. Could this be the result of a bad cam?
Any advise would be greatly appreciated. I've sent my car into the dealership for 20 to 25 time in a span of 1 yr and 8 moths or so. love the car, but i'm sooooo darn frustrated.
