What kind oil do you use in these?
My euro experience is limited to a W203 C Class, and a E39 530i
This is uncharted waters for me
1999 9³, B204L, 5 speed (185hp)
138k on it
Filters easy, it takes 910S/400S that I stock
Owners manual references
"To afford Saab engines the best protection, with regard to lubrication, the ability to dissolve residues and the neutralization of
combustion products, we recommend the following oil grades:
• API SH/CD/CF or SJ/CD/CF.
• ACEA A2/B2 or A3/B3."
Basic recommendations for Saab engines:
• SAE 10W-30 or 10W-40.
SAE 5W-30 can also be recommended but in which case the oil
must be semi of fully-synthetic and fulfil ACEA grade requirements A3/B3.
Oils which are less viscous, such as 0W/-40/50 are becoming
more common and may be used. However, the oil must be
fully-synthetic, of a well known brand, and fulfil ACEA grade requirements A3/B3.
This viscosity makes starting in cold weather easier.
Some kinda Euro 5w40?
Mobil 1 0w40?
Some kinda HDEO diesel oil for the turbo?
If I do pick it up tomorrow, probably gonna oil change as soon as I get it home, what's Advance/AutoZone got that'll do the job?
