First off, haul thyself down to the dealer and get thyself a case of the Castrol TWS 10W-60 oil. As far as I'm concerned it's the Right Stuff for the S62 motor.bbfl said:with all the discussion of lubrication and thrown rods...is there anywhere that lays out the steps on changing oil?
Thanks for the link, very useful:cheers:Osodog said:Try this:
Its an extremely easy process to change the oil and filter. What I have also started is sending a sample of the oil to a firm called BlackStonelabs (www.blackstone-labs.com) for analysis, which runs $20. Not sure if its going to help me in the long run but I am willing to forgo a few lattes to see how the oil is doing. I have also gotten sample reports from other board members to see how the #'s compare.
