              I noticed the difference right away when I started to use this product. I drive a Volkswagen Jetta and it really has made my car sound better and run a lot more efficiently. I recommend it highly. My car is now at 120,000 and it still sounds brand new.

              You often cannot get 5w 40 in stores anywhere and typically has to be ordered from Audi/VW or ECS. It's usually pricey too, like $6-10 per quart. This was a great value. I could change my oil every month for the cost of doing it every 3 months through Audi.

                  Have used this oil for most of the 163,000 miles on my 2002 Jetta TDI. I had to change the oil pan at one point and was impressed by how clean everything looked. This was/is the manufacturer
                  recommended oil for the ALH 2002 Jetta TDI engine and it has performed well.

                      What can I say, I love this motor oil. I use it at every oil change on my VW. This oil is specific to european vehicles with performance in mind. The difference between this oil and filling up with a brand that is also synthetic but not formulated for euro vehicles, you will definitely feel the difference. This oil does alot for your engine as far as lubrication and helps resist wear on vital engine parts that would be costly to replace. I have always used Castrol oil in all my vehicles and have not had any problems with this brand.

                            A:

                            I'm happy to help, Jiawei! The oil change interval of a motor oil is not set by the oil manufacturer. The change interval is set by your vehicle manufacturer. Synthetic motor oils will resist breaking down much better than conventional oils. If your vehicle manufacturer allows for extended oil change intervals when using synthetic oils, the Castrol Edge will be able to meet those requirements.

                            If you would like to extend your drain intervals past the manufacturer's recommendations you may find that purchasing oil analyses from a company that does them to see if the oil can meet those longer intervals in your vehicle. These are generally done by fleets as it allows them to get full use of the oil before doing an oil change.

                            If you could please provide your vehicle's year, make, model and engine size, we can look up the correct oil change interval for your vehicle.

                            I'm happy to help, Ian! Without the year of the SAAB I don't have a specific recommendation for your vehicle for motor oils. I would suggest to ensure that the API Performance Level meets or exceeds your engine's requirements. According to the specifications this oil meets SN. I also recommend ensuring that 5W-40 is the correct viscosity for your engine. In general specifications starting with S are for Gasoline engines and those starting with C are for diesel. Having the SN would indicate that it will perform in a gasoline engine, although I would make sure that it does meet the correct performance level and viscosity by checking your oil cap or owners manual.

                            With reference to your inquiry on the Castrol Edge with Syntec Technology 5W-40 Fully Synthetic Motor Oil (1 Quart) - Part No. 06249, a 5W-30 and a 5W-40 or any 5W-XX motor oil will behave the same on cold starts. Their viscosity and so their behavior will differ once they are up to operating temperature. In most inhabited regions a synthetic 5W-40 will be OK, since it will behave at least adequately from -10 to +45 or so.

                        • Q:

                          The oil I use is required not only to lubricate the engine but also lubricate the transmission and clutch (motorcycle). Is this Syntec 5W-40 oil good to use in the gear box without foaming and also lubricate the clutch.

                          Why is Castrol Syntec 5w40 not recommended for use in Motor Cycles? I am currently using it in a Honda CBR600RR. Are Synthetic oils in general not recommended for use in Motor Cycles? Thanks

                            Motorcycles use the same oil for the engine and transmission at the same time. Straight motor oil doesn't have the right additives for the high shear forces of the transmission.

                            A:

                            It is advisable to use the recommended viscosity range in motor cycles, e.g. 10w40, 20w50, etc. for the climate in your area. In general, to protect your motor use the heaviest oil you can that still meets the manufacturer's guidelines. For example, 20w50 is better in warm weather than 10w40 and 10w40 is better in warm weather than 5w40, because it gives you a thicker oil cushion between bearing surfaces at operating temperature. For racing, a thinner oil will offer less resistance and thus more power, but will offer less protection.
