Pegasus said:I had the same question as there are a couple of different "weights" of Shockproof. So I called Redline. I talked to one of their folks who knew of the LT's FD issue. He recommended "Heavy" so that's what I've been running. Sixty-five thousand on the clock so far and no FD issues.
I had the same question today at the service counter. I was going with 75w/140, but that wasn't an option. I ordered (no, not in stock. Seems to be hard to find in my area) heavy. Man, am I relieved.Sofitel505 said:Same here. After my FD was replaced by BMW out of warrantee 35000 miles ago, the service manager told me to use the Heavy and that's all that's been in there since. I change it at every oil change and the magnet is always clean. The stuff works. That is all.
From what I saw in the catalog at the auto parts store, the gear oil dosen't come in weights other than "light, medium?, or heavy". I ordered the heavy and will get it this Tuesday.LAF said:Bit confused myself.
These are what I use, so what is the RedLine weights?
