    2.3 so 3 bottles , what oil are you putting in ?

    Anything done to prevent the engine oil pressure issue ?

    hello buddy and thanks for the reply, as far as im aware i think i am in the clear for the oil pressure issue as my car is 2008 so i think it was sorted at this point.

    many thanks

    ... for the incorrect oil recommendation of 75W-80
    G052 911



    Fuchs TITAN Sintofluid FE SAE 75W

    G052 171 is correct .

    2008 will be geared but still with the 77mm oil pump drive time bomb .
