did you use the same oil as last time or chaned it?changing brands can strip the junk out of the motor and clog oil filter,we also noticed castrol magnetic oil varies alot on the pressure gauge,if the pressure switch is shotlik on earlier motors they crack and leak oil,can see oil leaks.


I don't know what oil was used before because I noticed that the oil was clean when I bought the car from the auction. Nothing was wrong until i changed the oil, oil filter, spark plugs, and oxygen sensor.

I'm using the magnatec one at the moment and it seems to work fine but as you said....it might have clogged up the oil filter. might change it again after another 1000kms.

Gaz...mine is supposed to do that but it just sits up top no matter what i do sometimes. Other times it would just sit half way and then move slightly when I rev it once I let go of the throttle it would fly to the bottom again until I accelerate and then it just goes up to half way...changes everytime. might be sensor

phong =P~
el did the same with magnatec oll,changed oil,ok


so what oil should i start using instead of magnatec?

im guessing there is no harm in using magnatec but since it might be the first time being used its mucking up my sensor.
