Maybe why mine sounds like a bag of nails in the morning then :roll:bobsabuilder said:Unless you're driving in a very hot country 5W30 would be better for the Navara in the UK and flow through the oil galleries a lot easier when cold.

As a point of interest, over here there’s been a lot of controversy about small garages using oils which are not API – ACEA approved. Obviously they’re using cheap, sub-standard, oils, but certain manufacturers have negated the warranty on vehicles serviced with these oils when the engine has gone belly-up.bobsabuilder said:From Nissan:
Engine Oil Capacity
Oil drain and refill with filter change 7.6 litres
Oil drain and refill without filter change 7.1 litres
Dry engine (engine been rebuilt) 7.9 litres
Engine Oil Grade
API CF-4 (NEVER USE API CG-4)
ACEA B1, B3, B4, B5
SAE 5W-30 is Preferable
If 5W-30 is not available, select viscosity based on anticipated outside temperature range.
5W30 is good from colder than -30 to higher than +40 degree C
10W30 / 10W40 / 10W50 is good from -20 to higher than +40 degree C
15W40 / 15W50 is good from -15 to higher than +40 degree C
20W40 / 20W50 is good from -10 to higher than +40 degree C
What brand of oil you use is your choice.
someone mention that it dosn't have certain lube for the top end.newby said:Why is API CG-4 a no-no?
I’m a long way off my first oil change, so I want to make sure the dealership uses the oil which I want.
