Engine Tick Over


Recommended Posts

Do you know what oil is in the engine? Chances are its probably 5w-30 spec oil. If you want to quieten down the engine change the oil for a thicker grade, such as 10w-40.

5w-30 is fully synthetic oil where as 10w-40 is semi-synthetic oil. Most people use 5w-30 oil in the IS200.
