Servicing my Troll soon. Picked up most of the info below from Koos Best's post. Some of the rest from other chats on this forum.
Prices quoted are ex VAT from Gaydons
Going to get an oil analysis done on the spent oil. http://www.wearcheck.co.za
cost R1600 for a 10-sample test kit, viz. R160 per analysis vs. R350 / analysis if you buy just one.
1. Many have said you can get aftermarket filters for the rest, but go with the original Nissan air filter. Why is this? Seems like a fairly basic filter to make? Mine takes the oval, pan type air filter.
2. Reference manual says you need 9.2l and 8l oil (without filter change)
But others on the forum said it took them just over 10l. How come?
Z153 (GUD) equivalent PH4738 (Framm) R61.95 + VAT
Z292 (GUD) PH2850 (Framm)– – R90 + VAT. (This is the longer one that many on the forum prefer using instead)
Caltex Delo 400 seems best - based on what users here and 4x4community say(R195 - 5l)
