as long as ya are talking oil,,. i ran the 2000es with 10w40 pennzoil, bought it in 2008. never slipped, when changing gears, or any other time. TILL.. i had a shop due an oil change in Jan-Feb, 2016, instead of me. by that time i had found out, here, i should be running JASO oil. i sent 10w30, for them to replace, the oil i had in it, cause i was going to change to oil out again, in a month, to what it needed. warm weather thing.. besides the 10w30, might collect some dirt, before i could change the oil. the shop warned me, the clutches would slip, if i used this oil. i told them, to do it anyway. sure enough, the clutches did slip. i checked the oil, it was least 6oz. lite. that didnt help.. so i checked it again, then i noticed, the clay dirt was missing, on the adjustment nut. it locks the adjustment screw down.. once i did another another adjustment check, like the one i had done, 3mts before. it quit slipping.
tis amazing an oil change, can change the adjustment locknut, and knock off the clay, around it.. Who Knew
Castrol 10w 40, jaso ma-2, dont say anything bout extreme, nor heavy, duty.. i doubt this applies, in my case.
