Hey there guys,
First off, apologies for the lack of pictures, but I have at long last found and bought an XJ40!
She's a 1987 3.6 Sovereign in a shade of blue that I still need to confirm.
So I'll endeavour to get some photos up this weekend, as I know how much people love photos here.
So I'm keen to get the fluids changed, so I know that they've been done.
So in terms of engine oil, what would be recommended? I see the owners handbook has a few suggestions. Was thinking 10w40 or 20w50 (she has 122,000km or 76,000m on the clock)?
Automatic transmission fluid, I see the handbook calls for Dexron IID, but this seems hard to come by, would Dexron III be ok?
Power steering fluid, the handbook says Dexron IID or 'Type G', so same as above, is Dexron III ok? But I've seen some online discussion where it's mentioned that HSMO needs to be used? can anyone confirm?
SLS reservoir, so going by the handbook and online information, this is filled with HSMO and this services the SLS and the brake servo, correct?
Brake fluid is just standard DOT4?
My apologies if this has been covered before, but any help would be appreciated.
