RE: [DML] The best engine oil



Faded
I don't worry so much about the type of oil or so much the weight of the oil
except that the weight of the oil will severely affect the oil pressure
along with the idle. Yes, Volvo changed the specifications but our engine
aren?t computer controlled like the 85 engine is.
Watch your oil pressure. When it?s hot the pressure will go down further on
lighter weight oil. Our gauges are figured for a certain weight and changes
from that will show up in the oil pressure. Don't let it go to low.
Also listen for the noise that lighter weight oil will bring on during the
summer. Oil get real thin when hot.
Then, use the 72150 Bosch filter. If any one can show me the specifications
of another filter that is better then I would like to carry it. But don't
just throw ( A Good name ) filter in because of the name. All filters are
good but Bosch specifications is the best I have seen in anti drain back and

And by pass.

Many thanks to you who responded to my question about the best engine oil to
use in our cars. I learned a lot and I very much appreciate your taking the
time to give me your thoughts on it.
 
As a result of what you said I know now that I don't want to switch to a
synthetic engine oil. The only change I might make is from 20-50 down to 30.
It was interesting to read that Volvo changed its recommendation for the PRV
in 1985 down to 30. I did not know that but it makes sense. 
 
I salute you and I thank you all again.
