i just bought a 1989 Mx-6 GT and i was wondering what all you first generations use for oil. i could use some input, the person we bought the car lost the owners manual sometime ago. thanks for all your help!
I use Mobil Drive Clean Blend. It is their synthetic blend. The owner before me used full synthetic which caused it to leak oil from everywhere! This spring I will finish stopping the leaks with a new oil pan gasket and front main seal.
Glad to see some people using synthetics besides me! I leak too, but only from my turbo seal. Remember the synthetic oil doesn't actually CAUSE the leak, it just cleans all the sludge and varnish off your old seals, revealing leakyness that was there to begin with.
I also use Mobil synthetic blend 10w-30. And yes I did use Mobil 1 when I had Kenny's mx-6, and it started leaking like a whore after I did that. That's why I'm afraid to use it on my car, since it dosent leak anything.
