I m driving a 17 yrs old PV6.....

Is it advisible to use lighter grade engine oil like 5w/30,10w/30 or 15w/30?.....
Will these grades be too light for this engine?

Does the engine consume engine oil at the moment. Using 30 weight oil is not a problem and it all depends on your engine. For example my VR runs on hydraulic lifters and tried using 5w30 once. On cold start is nice, but once warmed up the lifters becomes very noisy. Using 5w40 is much more quiet so I switch back to 40 weight.... :driver:

Before I start - I'd like to highlight that what I'm going to discuss here today is considered basic NA engine modifications. I'm not going to go into the little hardcore mods, just only the most obvious and the most basic. If you start asking about the Power Linz or the Singh Groove, that means you're knowledgeable and shouldn't be reading this.

I'll talk about forced induction later since that...
