For the engine I would upgrade to a decent 5w-40 synthetic, these should keep the tappets quiert on start up and during hard use.

75w-90 is ok for the gearbox, what brand is it you have?

Cheers

The fuchs Gearsyn will be fine, it does not need changin all that often so standard service changes are fine.

Been floating around for years that one, I am not convinced. The reason for this is the Falex test used, it really does not replicate anything to do with an engine, high temp, hi pressure, hydrodynamic lubrication, detergents, shear stability, fuel dilution... The list goes on. In some other tests on that maching they have used cutting oils and various other things such a beer to show that they can be better lubricators then the engine oils on the falex machine.

Cheers

Guy

Make: Peugeot
Model: 106
Year: 1999
Engine size/type: 74000 mile 1.4 8v

Any mods: head skimmed, 3 angle cut and seated valves, de-cat

Type of use (road/track): everyday road use - mainly short journies but also do long motorway runs now and again. Most driving conditions tbh.

Additional info (max oil temps, current oil used): 10w-40 semi synthetic oil currently being use as Peugeot recommends

What do you want a recommendation for? Engine, Gearbox etc? Both. I have a 56,000 mile 1.1 gearbox ready to go in which needs oil too

If you drive the car hard I would upgrade to a 5w-40 for better protection.

Have a look at Motul, Fuchs, Mobil and Silkolene here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

To run in a 10w-40 semi synthetic is ideal, all semi synthetics are 100% mineral base so ideal for the job.

I need some gear oil for a 106 GTi Box.

What would you go with? Need to do 3000 miles as part of a rally across Europe in a short space of time so heat both engine and air temp will be high, any special requirements for this?

You*need an MTF for the gearbox and I would go with the Redline MTL or Amsoil MTF
*
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-670-75w-80-75w-85-mtfs.aspx

With hammering the car for 3000 miles, you may need to change the oils once partway though. I would hope not, but it's going to be worth checking.

I would use a 5w-40 synthetic and you will find those through the link below.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. I would go for one of those good ones as the others aren't as good for track use.

Any mods: simota intake, 4-1 exhaust, de-kat.

Additional info (max oil temps, current oil used): I live in Portugal, so the average summer temperature is 30C, with peaks of 40C. Currently Im using MOTUL 300V 5W40.

What do you want a recommendation for? Engine, because I think with the hot conditions in Portugal, maybe I need to use 15W50 or 10W60?!?!Tks in advance!

Hi

I would say a good 5w-40 would probably be the way to go, unless you are getting high (over 125C) oil temps, then a 10w-50 is the best choice.*

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-659-10w-50.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. They are all really good oils and up to dealing with higher temperatures.

Cheers

Tim

Is a Millers CRX 75w140NT oil alright in my MA gearbox with a Gripper plate diff?

The car is used for sprints and it was the grade of oil that Gripper recommended, but I am concerned about syncro wear being a possible problem.

The synchros should be fine, but it is a really thick option for the gearbox, as it should really been an MTF in there, so the 140 is more than twice as thick, making changes harder. May be worth trying the 75w-90 first.

Cheers

Yes, the 75w-80 is the standard choice, but with the recommendation of the diff, the 75w-90 is a compromise.

What would you suggest for an MA box, Quaife ATB for 20 mins hard use (racing).
There is only 120bhp going thru it!

With your car, there are two choices of what to fill your gearbox with.

The first way is to use an oil specifically aimed at the gearbox, which needs a manual transmission fluid.

I would go with the Redline MTL, Amsoil MTF or Fuchs Sintofluid.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-670-75w-80-75w-85-mtfs.aspx

The problem is that the MTFs aren't designed for LSDs and the oil will breakdown at a quicker rate than normal, but the gear changes will be nice and easy.

The second way is to use the Fuchs Syn 5.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-850-silk...-gear-oil.aspx

The Syn 5 is the only oil approved by Quaife, but it's a bit too thick for your gearbox, making the changes a bit harder. It will last longer than the MTFs though.

Cheers

Tim

So which would you reccomend??
Bearing in mind the car is only used in the summer months, and it is always 'up to temperature'.

I would probably go for an MTF, any of those 3 I mentioned are really good.

can you give me a reccomendation please..

im using the gti 16v engine, no engine mods just uprated exhausts and air filter. when its used it is used hard and the oil temps do get quite high.

i normally change the oil each event i do (at the moment im using Rockoils 10w40) basically because its cheap through work

also for the gearbox its a standard MA syncro gearset with a tranx plate lsd.

can you reccomend oils for both

Cheers lee

Drew and Lee, I'd recommend the same sort of oils for your cars as they are both getting track use.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-657-10w-40.aspx

The ones you ought to consider are the ester based ones - Fuchs Pro S, Redline, Motul 300V, Millers CFS or Gulf Competition. They last a lot longer than other oils on track and give better protection. Lee, Rock oil is a basic option and although it's cheap, it really isn't very good. You'd be better off using one of the ester oils and getting the full use out of it (roughly 10 solid hours of track use). Even if the Rock oil is changed every session, the ester oils will be giving better protection even after several hours of use.

With your cars, there are two choices of what to fill your gearboxes with.

The first way is to use an oil specifically aimed at the gearbox, which needs a manual transmission fluid.

I would go with the Redline MTL, Amsoil MTF or Fuchs Sintofluid.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-670-75w-80-75w-85-mtfs.aspx

The problem is that the MTFs aren't designed for LSDs and the oil will breakdown at a quicker rate than normal, but the gear changes will be nice and easy.

The second way is to use the Fuchs/Silkscreen Silktran Syn 5.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-850-silk...-gear-oil.aspx

The Syn 5 is the only oil approved by Quaife, but it's a bit too thick for your gearboxes, making the changes a bit harder. It will last longer than the MTFs though.

Cheers

Tim

Tim, thanks for the advice. I ordered 5litres of the Fuchs last night.
I am next racing on the 25th and will report back then.

If I use mtf oils and changed it same time as the engine oil would that be better as you say it breaks down quicker and I'd prefer a smoother change

Thanks for the order. Very good choice, it will be spot on

That's probably the best way to do it, although it should last a bit longer than the engine oil.

Nice parcel arrived today thanks!

Would you be able to advise on draining the old oil? I believe it should be hot/ warm, but I am unable to drive the car. Would it cause any problems draining it cold?

Just fire up the car and leave it idling for a bit Mike. Even though it's in neutral, the gears are in constant mesh so it'll still move the oil around, thought not as much as driving it about of course. Or stick it up on stands and leave it idling in gear.

For the gearbox a 75w-80 GL5 such as this one here from Fuchs http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-981-fuch...ion-fluid.aspx

Good to see someone checks previous answers. One forum has about 40 odd pages of us telling them they need a 5w or 10w-40 for their cars, so one seems to read even the earlier posts on a page.

You need 3.5L for the engine and 2L for the gearbox, according to my data.

Cheers

Tim
