What oil would you recommend?
Hi there guys!
Off on vacation into South Wales on Saturday, so have booked Friday off to perform some maintenance!
I'm going to give the oil a change and replace the filter as she's about 2k off an oil change.. My last service was at an Alfa dealership. And I know the recommended oil, but I'm wondering what experience you have had with other brands? And what you would recommend as an alternative.
I had the cambelt changed after purchasing, as the previous owner had advised me to do so.. Unfortunately for myself, as a new Alfa owner, I knew nothing about the variator, and after spending the money for the change I wanted to know more about the car I was driving.. Needless to say - the car now sounds like a diesel on start-up, and is using more oil than normal..
So if there's any oils that would be good to help this till I can find the £400'odd pound to change belts and variator again, that would be good!
Also, as I have a thread open, is there anywhere that sells a complete spark plugs package, or is it just easier to purchase individually.. The car is at 88k, and I don't think the plugs have ever been changed!
