  1. Help Please:
    I just purchased my new (used) Fairway. I am trying to find out what type of motor oil/oil filter I am suppose to use. Never came with owners manual. Any help would be great.

  2. The fairway owner's manual recommends 10w/40 to API SE/CC. Probably more important is to change the oil regularly, than the 'quality' of oil you put in. I am about to change the oil again and put Morris Lubricants golden film 10w40 for canal boats (because my ex-FX4 TD 27 is installed in a narrowboat) for its prevention of bore-glazing (the engine runs at low revs, low load for electricity generation). However, for general running the Morris servol 10w40 or any mineral based or semi-synthetic (I would go for the cheaper option) should be fine.

  3. Thanks for the advise Patrick

  4. The Nissan engine is in the 90s Nissan Terrano and Ford Maverick but with a turbo and intercooler and WAY more umph.
