Oil type
 
Hey Rick i did inspection II with you guys back in early may not I am at 105 000 km.

Now i got the yellow oil light on for about 10 secs when I start what oil should I buy to top it up until i come in for a next oil change?

Not sure which one you used.

lol...Rick. I think you mean Rocco. Anyway, for non-m cars, we use 5w40 synthetic

Have you actually checked the oil level? It may be ok and you might be getting the starting signs of a failing oil level senser.

We use 5w40, but you can top up with any high end 5w30 or 5w40 synthetic!


Thanks

0w 40 is just thinner on start up, which is better for oil travel. and less strain on your motor. I use 0w40 amsoil
