2 posts in this topic

Hello. First oil Change and PCV Service

1996 Volvo 850 T5 Auto. 200,000 miles. 18T Turbo.

What would be the most suitable and recommended Engine Oil please?

I seem to think Semi Synthetic as I have no history of the vehicle but what grade? Semi 10W-40 seems popular. Some Data is pointing to Semi 15W-40

To be honest, I dont know which way to go. Any help would be very welcome.

Thanking you all in advance

If it's 'standard' and you just plod about in it then 10w40, Castrol magnatec or similar would probably do it.

If its mapped, modded and driven aggressively 10w60 Shell helix ultra racing is what most of us run. It is usually cheaper than the above too.
