cj011 said:Okay I live in Hawaii and summer time is comming up. What type of synthetic oil can you folks recomend? Also how many quarts should I put in?
the reason they recommend different for winter than summer is when the temperature actually gets cold.... (like freezing) the oil gets thicker and dosnt circulate properly so they recomend a thinner oil for winter but... too thin of an oil isnt good so they tell you to put thicker oil in the summer....cj011 said:Wow, I think my last post falls in the dumb ass post category. The reason why I asked about different seasons is that several of the volkswagens my parents had recommended in the manual to run different types during summer and winter. Grant it the change is seasons was more radical than 80 in the winter and 89 during the summer.
