Contact Opie Oils - Engine Oil, Motor Oil, Gear Oil, Car Oil, Motorbike Oil, Transmission Fluid from oilman at Opie Oils they know their onions.
I'm currently running Castrol GTX 5w-40 fully synthetic Click and I am very happy with it. If you have start up rattle 5w40 will get rid of it
how much oil do i need
with the V8 you will prob need around 8 litres mate, a 1.8T takes 5 litres(5 Cylinder) mine takes 6 litres(6 cylinder) so yours is prob 8 litres(8 cylinder)
id recommend either Quantum Platinum or Mobil 1 ESP.
quantum platinum from TPS is something around £18 for 5litres so a big saving on the major brands
1.8t is a 4 pot
shame thou i love 5 pots
you need around 9.7 litres. our V8's take a lot of oil!
I found this video useful when I came to do mine
thanks very much i will probably be having a go this weekend once i have got a bank loan pay for the oil
bloody hell its takes a lot
do you think i could use 10w40 oil
my local supermarket has castrol 10w40 on special
