85,000km Service

Pic 1: Time for a service

It's time for fresh fluids for the ER34 again. The vehicle is now at 85,000km and due for an engine oil change, transmission oil change and differential oil change. My last engine oil change was 5,000km ago which is approximately 5 months back. :O

In comes my usual engine oil, Torco SR1 10W-40. This stuff works wonders for the ER34. It's not exactly cheap and sometimes I wonder should I consider a change, the cheaper Royal Purple perhaps? Hehehe

The obligatory original Nissan oil filter (Part No. 15208-53J00) was also changed.

Pic 4: 4 bottles of Redline Lightweight Shockproof

As for my transmission oil, I've decided to upgrade from the current Redline MT-90 75W-90 to the higher range Redline Lightweight Shockproof which has excellent low-temperature flow, that allows easier shifting when cold.

The Redline Lightweight Shockproof has also received rave reviews from Skyline users that have trouble shifting fast into 5th gear. Yes the dreaded 5th gear crunch. I hope this will solve it good. :)

Pic 5: Elf Gearelf 140

I've also switch my differential oil from KAAZ Powertrain Gear Oil 80W-90 to Elf Gearelf 140. I hope I made the right choice in this. Cheaper and just as effective I presume.

  4. rehet34, time for a BNR34 or a Supra. :P

    transparent101, ok. Time to find time to fit it in. :P

  5. Motul for engine oil or? Well generally I think MOTUL is overrated and overpriced.

  6. EJ,

    How much is the Redline Lightweight gear oil? Do you know any place where we can buy it off the shelf aside from Eneos?

  7. You can try the local distributor, Cybertech. I got mine in JB from a chap that brings it in from Singapore.
