Skorchio!!!

Decent oil but stupid size - 4 litres is about half a litre too small for most cars. Just changed the oil on a (hot female) friends car, she hadn't changed it for 2.5 years, oil wasn't even on the dipstick and looked like tar! Frequent oil changes make the biggest difference to your engine outlasting your bodywork

Edited by: "Deal_HUNT3R" 5th Jan 2012

Saw this in my store the other day for £10, good deal. I got some the last time they did the deal.

my oil needs topping up until i can afford a service/oil change but just looked on the castrol site and its only recomending the magnetics range, anyone used this from asda in an 07 diesel cmax 1.8? could recomend which one i get?

`Looks a great deal to me !!

Thanks

the Ford oil from the dealer would be cheaper than Magnetic

just ordered two at that price !

What oil should I get for a X3 2.0 Diesel 08 reg? I tried to use the halfords thing but it doesn't recognise the number plate? Thanks in advance, hot for the price either way.

Saw lots of this instore at Longwell Green this evening.
Not right for my car - but bargain nonetheless.

This is being sold off in lots of places as Castrol are changing the bottle sizes I believe - so my father in law tells me anyway...

Stick your registration in here and it will tell you what you need...

Most modern vehicles need at least a Semi Synthetic these days.

Have they got any Edge on offer ?

5w30 as well. The Castrol oil finder is better than the Halfrauds one.

Also requires 5w30.

This stuffs only really good for old cars 10years + but a good price.
Nearly all modern cars take fully or part synthetic.

Yawn. This came up earlier this week.

And last week.

Would this do in a 1.6 Turbo Diesel VW campervan ?

It seems to be using a lot of oil at present, and I've been topping up with Morrison's own brand 15 40, which is about £12, but i would imagine Castrol is a better oil

Voting hot as even though its a deal that keeps coming and going with Castrol in Asda over the years its still a good deal.

For those of you making reference to Semi-Synthetic oils......

I've been using Coma brand (Semi-Synthetic) on 3 different PUG engines for years now - 106 1.4D (TUD3), 106 1.5D (TUD5) & Partner Combi 1.9D (DW8) and have absoloutely no complaint, no loss of oil and still great fuel consumption.

If you are ordering a few containers at a time the best prices I usually find are at camskill.co.uk/ for the semi-synthetics......and they still use 5L containers :-).

If in doubt about what oil to use consult your owner's handbook or contact a main dealer. I've seen mistakes before in a well known chain of car accessory store where they have advised the incorrect air filter in one instance and an auxilary belt in another......I might trust them with replacing a light bulb but are you going to trust them to tell you what oil you need?????

Ehh?

10/40 is part synthetic & 5/30 is fully synthetic........

Great for frying chips.

I bought some 10/40 semi synthetic for my VW T4 1.9D no probs, would be fine for yours given its older, even the 5/30 is ok, do a full change just to be sure. Old veedubs can be oil burners

Ehh? 10/40 is part synthetic & 5/30 is fully synthetic........



Nope. The numbers refer to the oils viscosity nothing to do with synth or not. For anyone intrested this is semi (almost mineral), magnetec is semi and edge is fully.

Think you will find the 5w30 container is A1B1 which is substandard and out dated, should go for A3B3 or A3B4. All other containers are of this specification

Good price. I'll use this to flush my engine, then add my proper Mobil1 juice.

fix the problem!

possibly the turbo seals, as when they start to go it looses oil, until it sucks all the oil out the engine and the engine then seizes.

could also just be a leaky gasket.

about all its good for

Help please, can't find on website what other oil's I can use for my Saab 2.3 turbo petrol engine
it's 0w/40 ?
Thank you

Need edge 5w 40 for my diesel dog peugeot 2l. apparently. It's done 177k and is only worth 900 quid, seems rather excessive putting in posh oil innit?

duplicate post. Although its a deal its already been voted hot this week.

I know. But Castrol's 10/40 is a semi and their 5/30 is fully synth - as per the tubs.

Been posted plenty of times before but no harm reminding everyone. I picked up one the other week

How do you change engine oil? Are you suppposed to flush out the old oil...if so, how?

Unless the car hasn't been serviced recently there is no need to flush, take the car for a hard, fast drive to get the oil really hot and as quick as possible drain the old oil out. As long as you change the oil filter at the same time any old oil left will be negligible, and will probably help protect the engine for the first few seconds before the new oil gets around the engine.

There is a bolt on the bottom of the sump, lift your car up and undo with your teeth. You will be rewarded with a hot bath. If your not resonably competant, just take it to the garage for £50 otherwise you will end up covered in oil with a stripped filter / sump.
