    Engine noise and questions about oil

    Hello.
    Friends I have a problem with my z20let.
    I have a small noise coming from 1500 rpm to use 0w40 mobil1.Yo I do not have the manual for the car which does not use that oil.
    Been reading and I see that many usais the 5w40.
    I've seen and been investigating the Castrol Edge 10w60 Motul 300V 15w50 and you seem?
    I recommend that oil? The weather here is hotter than in the UK for example.

    I use Mobil 1 0w-40 or silkolene 5w-40 In mine with no problems or noises.

    What oil were you using previously, did it make the funny noise then? Is it making the noise when hot or cold?

    The manual will probably reccomend 10w-40 or 5w-30

    germany is generally cooler than spain, lol.

    as for your oil, see the opie oils thread and website, also email them, and ask them to reccomend you an oil for your car, i did, and its great.
