    Suppose it could be stickied... although in the font of all wisdom its easy enough to find... 'OIL' typed into search brings it up at the top

    Agree - stickying this might go some way to avoid all the noob "what oil?" questions. I found it by searching "oil" in FOAW (and reckon that it's probably the most helpful oil article I've found on here), but it'd be even easier to find if it was stickied at the top; some folk may not bother searching - new tossers popping up all the time, no?

    Either way, thanks to OP for posting those many moons ago.

    Oddly enough despite the age of the original post it was all perfectly valid until the LC's appeared on the scene with their newfangled gearbox lying under the cam chain in the sump(ish) and wet clutches. So whereas the answer to tailscookie's question about diesel spec oil was almost certainly "yes" it's no for a LC.

    In case you were wondering what happens to oil when it gets cold, this shows quite graphically how it responds to low temperature.
