How much oil to put in Nova GTE when doing an oil change??
I have done an oil change on my Nova GTE. I used an engine flush first to clean it out then emptied the old oil out then put new stuff in Think it was 15w 40. I put 3.5 litres in it, and it taps a bit now after i was booting it.
Anybody explain this. I checked the dipstick after leaving the car overnight and it says the oil level is on Max Why is this i thought 3.5 is about right??

Slap some 20w50 Duckhams classic in, apparantely engines as old as the GTE ones were developed for thick oil.
I used to run 10w40 Castrol Magnatec Part synth. in my 1.2carb nova and it burned through it too quick.
I also had a very slight tapping sound before the 20w50 and it doesnt burn through it at all (after 4months of running) never had to top up and its loads smoother.
Try 20w50 its £8 for 5 litres!
Also check spark plugs in your block for tightness.
