77777 - time for oil change
Just hit 77,777 in my 1996 gtv so i have decided time for an oil change, plus the oils looking a little dark now.
I know there are numerous threads on this but can somebody give me a straight answer. Is 10w-40 anygood in my car?
When i read about oils i see they mention ambient temperature ranges and what you should you for -20, but im pretty certain, lincolnshire will not reach that this winter!
But then on the otherside i drive a minimum of 24 miles roundtrip to work and it gets treated hard towards the end of the journey so high revs.
so is 10w-40 semi-syn any good or should i stick somthing else in, im aiming at using this as i have a ready supply of free castrol oil from work and it seems to need a litre every 2 weeks with no real obvious majour leaks, although their is evidence on my drive.
