    Bros and sis, meron akong nabasang old thread dito about engine oil of 4jg2 engine Trooper. Maganda raw performance ng 5W-30 engine oil para sa 4jg2. But 5W-30 ang recomended sa 4jx1 at 10w-30 sa 4jg2. Ask ko lang comments nyo about using 5W-30 on a 4jg2 engine? Nakalagay kasi owners manual na "Not recommended for sustained high speed driving" ang 5w-30 sa 4jg2. TNX.

    The 5w30 is really spec'd for the 4JX1 engine due to the common rail. The 5w30 mentioned is also a full synth oil, a mineral based one can't be used for high speed driving.

    For standard diesel engines, you can use 15w40 like delo gold, mobil delvac.

    ang ibig nyang sabihin, for sustained high speed driving, dapat 5w30 na fully synthetic oil ang ilalagay sa 4jx1.

    15W-40 would be the most ideal for our ambient temps.

    hindi ba prone ang trooper na magleak ang oil sa mga seals pag gamit 5w-30 na oil? masyado kasing malabnaw yung oil.

    The leaks are possibly caused by old oil seals or gaskets which were removed of built up gunk with the use of a full synth oil. The Petron 5w30 full synth oil should not leak if all seals are still good.

    gary q: tnx. btw, 4jg2 engine mo rin di ba? what oil do you use?

    yes, 4JG2. delo gamit ko ngayon, 15W-40. Tried din yung Petron Trekker na 10W-30. Balik ako sa Delo coz cheaper and it's the recommended viscosity for our temps
