Thanks, I'll try a 40 then and see how that goes.

I don't think I've done the butterfly and catback. I changed my cat and precat since that 420 code was showing, but that's it.

It seems like I have to add a litre (one of those smaller bottles) every few weeks. It lasts a month for sure, and then some time after that I notice on the dipstick that it's around a quarter full....

Yeah, some oil consumption problems and I was talking to a guy that said changing to at least a 40 would help that out. Maybe even something thicker?

Oil Viscosity

I was just wondering what acceptable oil types are for my 02 SE-R? I currently use 10-30 in the summer and 5-30 in the winter. But can I safely change that to something like a 10/5-40?

What do you...

My 02 SE-R (not spec v) veers to the right on a hard acceleration from stop. I was told this is torque steering and just to get used to it.

Replaced precat, questions after (smell, P0303)

I posted here awhile ago about getting a 0420 code. I ended up getting a new cat, the code came back, and I found an inexpensive precat so I replaced that as a last effort.

The precat was changed...

I don't know if I can really get a newer car right now, so I found a place that can do it for $600 and will drive it after that and see if it's burning more oil or not. If the consumption goes up,...

Yeah exactly, I have an 02. I think the best bet would be to take it to the dealer and see what they say maybe? Then go from there?

I believe I have stock. I bought it used in 2006, and haven't done any mods to it.

So you think I should check one of the O2 sensors?
