Dis n bog storie Fanus, HX7 is reeds n mengsel van mineraal olie en sintetiese olie. Jy sal sien op die kan staan "semi cynthetic"

ok. :thumbup:

het gedink hx7 is vol sinteties. Maar ek sien dis semi sinteties: http://www.shell.co.za/motorists/oils-l ... 0w-40.html
Maar indien mens vol sinteties gebruik, kan mens dan oor slaan na multigrade? :think: Of is dit nonsens?

Ek sien 20w50 multigrade is heelwat goedkoper as 10w40...

But the last time I serviced, the only Helix my local spares shop had was the Diesel version. I took it anyway, as I thought that a bit of extra cleaning couldn't do any harm (my understanding is that the difference between the Diesel oils and the Petrol oils is a bit of extra detergents in the Diesel oils).

HX5 (15w40) ?

Rett pull the sump and clean the strainer on the golf .....castrol gtx was great in a 1400 but made big sluge in a vw that ran very hot ....in my younger days we raced them :thumbup:
Tinus, I ended up pulling the sump and strainer, but surprisingly not the slightest bit of sludge. I gooi'd a new gasket and filled up with Motul. I have since figured out there is a loose or dry joint on the dash. When the oil pressure light starts buzzing, I give the dash a slap and it stops. Weird.

I have bought Shell HX5 SN/CF 15W40 today for the Patrol, as the Midas I was at didn't have any Motul 4000 in stock. I'm going back to the mineral oil as I last put Castrol Edge in it, and it smokes a bit on start up (sometimes). I'm hoping this one clears up that issue:

UPDATE: The Shell definitely helps, as the car didn't have a single puff of smoke on start up the whole weekend. Runs as smooth as Zuma at the moment.
