Thicker Oil?

Hi Just wanted to ask which oil would you recommend for my 93 gto - i have a small amount of blue smoke…

Hi Lee, I use Fuchs oil, have a look at the Opie oil posts on here, you can then decide what to buy.

All the people who would answer you are on Japfest, no doubt enjoying themselves. Me, I had to work so couldn’t go :cry:

Hello, The blue smoke could be caused from turbo seals or engine oil rigs losing their compression causing “blow by”. A thicker oil weight may help maintain the engine.

A rebuild may eventually be in order of either the engine or turbos or both depending upon the quantity of blue smoke and under what conditions.

Thanks Steve - turned out it was just the PCV valve so was a cheap and easy fix!
