Also if you dont mind paying an extra $10 for an oil filter get a K&N oil filter too. They usually cost about $20-$30.. I paid $24 when i got one for the XF.

just a quick question about k+n oil filter.
i suspect i have low oil pressure, but i don't want to spend megabucks replacing oil pumps etc.. - engine is old, i'll just get a new one when i can afford. will the k+n brand one provide any less restriction and therefore raise the pressure?? would that be worth a try?

Jeeeeeeesus Frank... trying to kill this poor bloke??

You must use the trans fluid designed for the BTR box. Most brands have a suitable formula.. i think i'm using BP at the moment.

Funnily enough i run the same stuff through my power steering! But Dexron 3 should be fine for PS..

$10 ryco Z9 filter will do fine.

Oil, sparkplugs and leads - that's just begging for a "debate".. have a search around and see what has already been said...

For the engine oil, AMSOIL,
Transmission oil AMSOIL,
Power steering fluid AMSOIL
Filters, AMSOIL (or Perf-from)
Air filter, AMSOIL or K&N
Plugs Bosch or NGK

Some basic information on Amsoil comparitive tests: http://www.amsoil.com/lit/g1053.pdf

Using AMSOIL Synthetics, you only need to change your oil every 40,000km or 12 months, (which ever comes first) and the oil filter every 6 months or 20,000km.

See the link in my signature for a distributor.

Ryco filters are some of the best of the market ... no use spending more for something that does the same job or worse.
