Just some questions about oil change and what type of oil to use
My car has now done 87,845 as you can see below the car has been serviced about every 10k. Now it’s getting near 100k mark I'm thinking of an oil change every 5k. The oil is starting to get pretty dirty since last service only 3810 miles ago, also I have used up a 1L top-up in that time aswell. The car only does 5 miles to work and 5 miles back Monday to Friday and sometimes gets used longer at weekends.
I plan on having it remapped in March (Jabba) so want to get everything done that could need doing not to worries about the cost of the work just want to look after the old girl
1. What oil is best recommended for this engine?
2. Has my car been on AVS? I don’t understand what it is sorry
3. Is it worth having my sump off and the oil strainer/pipe check for blockages?
4. Do you recommend an engine oil flush? And what’s the best way to do it
