Thread: Oil for break in and for normal use?

  1. #1

    Default Oil for break in and for normal use?

    What has everyone been using for break in, and for normal driving?

    I noticed the Noble install CD (chap 11) says SAE 5w-20 synthetic for the engine oil. Is this correct? I had heard 5w-40 was the prefered oil.

    Here's what we got from 1G a bit ago on the latest break-in/oil info. My installer has me doing it a bit differently but still no full synth until the 2nd change.

    Ah, interesting, thanks. So it actually does use very light oil. I had thought I read Shell Helix 5w-40 on the PH forums.

    Found it... Search the Noble forum; word oil; last month timeframe.

    It was a different recommendation for the M400... It was the 5W-40 but it didn't say anything about break-in method or oils for that period. Makes sense it would use a bit different oil due to a bit more engine heat, etc.
