Re: Laguna II Full Service - Engine Oil - Comma?

Hi McLaren,
I telephone the technical dept at elf oil and they told not to use 5w 30 oil only 5w 40, he also said that elf and total are the same company and that elf 5w 40 comes out of the same tank as total 5w 40, usually total is the cheaper one to buy.
I have also phoned several dealers and got different answers to the same question.
Some places will not give tech info.
I had 2 track rods replaced at dealers they charged me for setting the tracking and balancing the wheels it turned out the wheels where 15mm further apart at front than they should be and 2 wheels needed rebalancing.
Its like knocking your head on a brick wall.
