Note that on the super gear it states Gl4, would that be suitable for transfer aswell as diffs ?

And then for engine oil, these would be most likely my 2 choices,...

JUST A NOTE ON OIL!!

As far as I am aware, if your motor has been running on mineral oil, you should not change to synthetic oil or the other way around. DVR on the 4x4 Community Forum's son lost the motor on his Jeep changing the oil from mineral to synthetic, he lost all oil pressure and huge oil consumption!!I can't remember the full details, I just vaguely remember the incident. quite a few years ago.

Read about it here (I found the thread) - https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/sh ... l-warning-!!

Are you sure this vehicle has been running on HX7 all along? I run my Patrol and my Pathfinder on HX3, both therefore running on mineral oil.

Just a caution on synthetic oils. Nissan's dealer bulletin on recommended fluids and lubricants (dd15 Aug 2018) has a note on page 1 that says:
" The phenomena of high oil consumption, valve train noise and timing chain rattle on start-up, can be aggravated by using fully synthetic type oils."

I have spoken to expert oil guys about the synthetic vs mineral oil and if they mix or not. Aparantly its a myth that you cannot swith over. I have switched over on previous vehicles I had with no drama.

Shell HX7 is actually a blens oil and is a mix of symthetic and mineral oil........ so think it prooves the point as well.

Depending on what engine you have, what Anthony said is quite important as the precombustion chamber engine (like the Patrol TD42 and the Ranger 2.5) is not suited to run a full synthetic oil.

Me agree..

During oil to-pup now and then I have mixed all sorts of oils n my 4.2D, no issue now at 842 000 km

But - instances where I serviced and filled with fancy modern expensive fully synthetic oils, I have noticed the oil light flicker a few times at startup. I did notice higher oil consumption an in addition the engine for sure sounded a little harsher. With "older" spec oil such as the cheaper 15W40 Diesel oils, Midas/Autozone house brand labeled or Indy Turbo Oil she runs as smooth as cream.

So what do I do - Service at intervals no longer than 4-5 months and no further than 10K km. I use the larger GUD Z34 oil filters and buy the cheapest 15W40 oil I can get my hands on. (My Patrollie takes 11 liters of oil at service with those 2 big filters fitted !)

I was an avid Delo 400 supporter and user for the iron Maiden for many years, but one service a few years back I couldn't get any Delo 400, so saw the Shell HX7 as shown on the pics above by Tapie, and mine runs smooth and without any more oil consumption than usual. No rattle and hum noise change either. I have also had no issues with a flickering oil light.

I really hope this is a good oil for the TD42, as I've done over 50 000Km on the stuff.... :pray:

Oh and I service every 5000 Km both oil and filters (2 x big ones)

Cedric, not surprised you cannot see the flickering oil light. It's probably all the black smoke.... *cough* *cough*.... :rolling: :rolling: :layrubber: :layrubber:
