Bought first car with 1.9JTD.
I decided to change oil and oil filter. I went through service history and found that previous owner been using castrol 10W40 oil, so I did the same.
I recently went through owner's manual and found that manufacturer recommends 5W40.
Should I change it to manufacturer's recommended or stay with 10W40? Car has 150k miles on the clock.
I live in a place where it's between 5C and 20C all year round.
Go for 5W then? Friend told me going into less dense oil now after running 10W40 for a long time might cause leaks or something like that. How much true is that?
Another slightly unrelated question, how often should manual transmission's oil be changed? I was told this is something you usually never do, but I have a suspicion that this can't be right. Going into 1st and 2nd gear is rough sometimes and I wonder if oil change could fix it.
Quick primer on oil, the first number is the weight of oil cold (as in 20°C or thereabouts). The second is the weight of the oil under normal operating temps. So, unless your car is being started in -10°, or lower, it is not going to make much of a difference. The car has always had xW-40 in it. Sometimes if an engine has blow-by (the rings are wearing out) you can reduce excessive oil consumption by running a heavier weight oil, like 20W-50.
Manual transmission oil is not commonly changed. If you have grinding gears, it is more likely worn out syncros or possibly a clutch issue. Changing fluid is not going to fix\help anything.

What a the best way to clean your windshield/inside windows of your car?
wtf, i want a foxbody gt now.
I have no idea why, but the combination of his voice how he speaks, and how he drives makes me want to bring him within an inch of his life only to realize I've just been beating on metal because he's a robot.
These are the only 10/10 cars you can buy today. Which one would you prefer?
Lineup seems to be missing another 10/10 car.
pls help I replaced my battery today(2008 na forester)and now the piece of shit keeps stalling at idle. Is there some trick to fix it? or do i have to wait for the retard ecu to figure it out..
clean the throttle body or air filter. The Ecu probably learned to rev higher as it dirtied up. The power was cut and it reset to factory settings expecting a perfectly clean throttle body
How bad of a choice would this Ranger be for a truck that would primarily be used as a DD and occasionally hauling light loads?
Not too big on buying from a dealer, but it looks pretty clean for the price, but it also looks like a fleet truck.
>What's better; Anti-lag or 2 Step?
After watching videos, they still confuse me. and I can't decide which is better for a turbo
I'm currently saving up for a 1991-1993 240sx, it's gonna be my first drift/race car
>Would a Varying Geometry Turbo circumvent turbo lag enough not to need either?
>Would I benefit from one 2 step or Anti-lag anyway?
>Can you even find VGTs for a 240sx?
>If now what's best turbo option?
part B to the question:
>I currently live in Commiefornia, would they both make me fail smog?
inb4 get a supercharger, I don't want a super
I'm still learning, that's why I come to this thread, so pardon any ignorace
If you get the right size turbo and a good ball bearing turbo, lag should not be an issue. Unless if you plan on doing dig races you shouldn't need a 2 step, all a 2 step is is a secondary red limiter that you can launch off of typically at full throttle without traction loss, but that's for drag cars. Anti lag is mainly a rally thing that is a bitch to tune and install, plus it is very hard on the turbo. Just go for about a 38mm Garret ball bearing turbo and call it good. Do injectors and fuel system and ignition system upgrades. Also, get good tires. Traction makes all the difference in any car. Pinch your pennies and buy the best wheels and tires you can buy, same with suspension. Also if you want driveability try to get a limited slip diff don't weld it. Dailying a welded diff is stupid and unsafe. Also get good brakes too
Why aren't we allowed to have smallish trucks in burgerland anymore?

Hey, so someone made a couple of Katawa Shoujo themed stickers a while ago. Any idea who it was? They made Misha's drills, and I'm pretty sure someone made the VN's logo, too.
INISHARUU D! Available at Project Hoon, limited quantities remaining!
I'm gonna keep the outside black, what should I do for interior meme stickers? I already have some RX-78 Gundam stickers on order but I need more plans. Interior belts are green Takatas.
Would any of you ever get a van? If so, for what reasons? I'm only asking because it is very rare to see people with vans.
