Hello there !
Are there any special conditions in Florida ?
I live in Stockholm SWEDEN and have a 1998 VW Passat Variant with a 1.8T engine.I have always used a fully synthetic 5W-40 oil from a well known manufacturer as recommended by VW without any problems.
10w30 synthetic is best
Yes, and I highly recommend you use synthetic in any air cooled engine. Use SAE 10W30 or SAE 30 weight.
No, as long as it is the proper weight. In fact I highly recommend synthetic oil be used in any air cooled engine.
The correct oil weight is now 5W20; it used to be 5W30, but Ford has recently allowed your engine to use 5W20 as an energy saving oil. If you don't use synthetic oil, stick with the 5W30; non-synthetic 5W20 will burn out your engine faster than non-synthetic 5W30.
Use 100% synthetic oil in the exact weight as recommended by the manufacture of the engine.
If you mean 5w20 synthetic the answer is NO. Pontiac recommends SAE 10w30 weight oil in Synthetic or Conventional. Use exactly that weight.
In a Brand new engine it is recommended that you get the rings seated before you start using Synthetic oils. So run your engine for 3,000 miles and then you can switch to a Synthetic.
Yes, and I highly recommend you use synthetic in an air cooled engine.
10w30 is a good choice year round. I highly recommend you use synthetic oil in this air cooled engine.
After the break in period it is not an issue.
conventional. I wouldn't put synethic in it unless it has already had it in the engine. Synthetic is mostly used in high performance or new vehicles. Synthetic won't do anything for an older engine
The 3.6 L uses 5w20, synthetic or conventional.
SAE 10W-30 synthetic oil.
yes if the proper weight
5w20 is used in 2009 toyota camrys.
I did back in 2001 , and have used 100 % synthetic oil in my 1995 Ford Explorer ever since . As long as your engine is healthy ( doesn't leak or burn any oil ) I had about 51,000 miles on my engine when I did so I knew the piston rings had " worn in " As long as you use the same weight of engine oil that the manufacturer recommends and it meets the manufacturers specifications ( P.S. I'm not a mechanic / technician )
When I first asked the dealer about switching to synthetic oil, he said the it already used a mixed synthetic and regular oil and that 100% synthetic was unnecessary.
SAE 10w30. I recommend you use synthetic oil in any air cooled engine.
5 quarts SAE 5w-30 weight.
SAE 20w50 100% synthetic oil.
SAE 30 full synthetic.
