    What oil was being used before ?I wouldn't want to change the oil type frequently as it can lead to what is called a detergent affect. Stick to good one oil & one good oil source!I used the shell in my 2.OD with very poor results. I swicthed to Caltex Delo Gold and it smoked less. I personally prefer the Caltex Delo, use that in my 3L & 1KZ-TE engines.

    Last used oil was Delo Gold. I guess I should have used the same. They didnt have it when I went there. I guess you should buy oil and then go to get it changed. I hope i wont have to regret it.

    Delo Gold is my choice for my CJ-5, 2C turbo, never let me down anywhere... And never thought of changing the brand...
