    Valve stem oil seals additive

    Mines an M20 ???
  3. According to the mot history, my car wasn't mot'd (used) between 2007 - 2014, it seems the valve stem oil seals may have become brittle over that period of time, as the car produces a whiff of smoke when pulling away under acceleration. I have been told there is an additive you can use to soften the seals ? Anyone know if this is true & if so what is the additive ? Thanks

    Sorry Mick, completely forgot about this, you still up here ?
  5. As title says, my drivers seat base is pretty ropey, if anyone has a good one, not torn / worn I would be interested. Many Thanks

    What oil to use in a 525e ?

    Topped up with 10w40 fully synthetic, it took a litre of oil to put it up to the full mark. It does have a slight weep so will keep an eye on it.

    Any progress ?
  13. My 84' 525e needs the oil topped up, the manual is a bit vague on what type of oil to use, and done a quick search on here but couldn't find anything. I'm thinking 10w40 but don't know if I should use fully synthetic, part synthetic or what. What do people use. Sorry if this has been covered before.
