Howdy mates, Sweden here - new to the forum.
Know NOTHING bout cars cept need to get me an RCZ!
A few days it came true
Oil is BLACK, needs changing, thus I found my way here to ask a lot smarter mates advice. (=you)
Northern parts of Sweden can get very cold (coldest I personally been outside in was -57°C, however thats the record, most winters doesnt drop below -34°C to -36°C'ish. )
So the 0w30 is a no brainer since its hard to start a car with thick 5w30 also putting a lot of strain on engines fragile from the sub zero horrors. I have enough brains not to rattle the car keys below -26°C'ish though.
Could you give me any advice Id sure appreciate your expertize.
What I got availible and locally recommended are these;
Mobil 3000 formula P 0w30Castrol Magnatec STOP-START 0W-30 C2Total Quartz Ineo First 0W-30
Also they highly recommended something called,
MPM 0W-30 Premium Synthetic PC
Also they told me I need to use "engine wash", hope I translate this correctly?, an additive, run engine 10 mins idle, un-cork it and pour the old hot oil out, then fill the most expensive above back up again.
So I turn to you, more sensible car experts, for advice which oil option and that additive engine wash thing?
Thanks for being here and all or any advice you have for me
May the force be with you mates!
