Oil Change for Mk4

23 August 2008 - 10:57 AM

Thinking of doing an oil change this weekend.

Simple question is, which weight of oil is ideally suited?

10W40 too light or is it ok?

Thanks in advance

Mk4 Lumpy Under Acceleration

17 June 2008 - 11:43 PM

Hey you lot, I'm new to the forums, hopefully I can provide info as well as deal out the problems :)

I purchased a '99 Mk4 Fiesta about 8 months ago and gradually the lower end of the gears, when I need to accelerate mid to hard it feels as if the engine momentarilly cuts out for a few seconds then around the torque band it sorts itself out.

replaced the spark plugs a month or two ago and the problem ironed itself out for a while, but it has returned again! I bought some Redex for injected engines thinking its maybe a problem with the injector bank?

Question is, is it my driving style? Or am I missing something important?

Any questions just fire away.

Thanks in advance, will probably edit to add things I've forgot!
