Engine flush? WTF? The only thing to put in the sump is clean oil. If it's dirty, change your oil more frequently.

Yes, I am still alive, and still in the Rover parts business.
Text me for greatest likelihood of finding me.

Engine Oil Selection

On my DII and P38 (2001 & 2002) - I use Mobil 1 Full Synthetic High Mileage 5W30 in winter, Same make 10W 30 in spring and fall, and Mobil 1 Full Synthetic High Mileage 10W 40 in summer - I live in GA. I use a Mobil 1 301 filter always.

Are these sensible choices - I have no leaks and get great quiet running engines and performance - BUT I'd like to know if I an doing the right thing.... It would be nice for these to keep going for a long time, (DII has 81K and P38 88K)

BTW - AUTOZONE in GA have a special until Sunday - 5 Quarts of Mobil 1 High Mileage Full Synthetic and get a free Mobil 1 oil filter free - Total price $24.95 !!!! I stocked up with 10W40 and 301's :-)

Dexcool may be the reason our D2's have been eating up head gasket faster the the D1's that don't use it. It also eats up out t/stat housings as well as the coolant caps.

That oil combination is fine, some may also suggest Shell's Rotella synthetic.

the orange descool is no good.it leaves residue in the water pump and wears some parts out faster

What about Dex/Merc? Says it is compatible as Dexron 3. My local parts store says Dexron 3 is a thing of the past.
