    Oil change for x3.

    I have new x3 xrs. Getting ready for oil change and wondering about which oil to use besides the can am oil. Seen a video on YouTube and they used rotella t 6 oil. What's everyone else using other than can am oil. Thanks

    Rotella T6 is an excellent choice. I have been using the Mobil 1 equivalent.

    While you are at it, do the rivnut conversion for the skid plate.

    I use Rotella T6 Synthetic in everything, it's a great oil. But it's your car, use what you want. If you haven't done it, I would suggest drilling out your skid plate rivets, and installing Rivnuts. Dropping the skid makes the whole oil change process 100% easier, and 100% less messy. If you haven't, well...….. you'll find out.

    Probably 50+ threads to find regarding oil and oil changing tips & tricks. Lot's of options and helpful suggestions to be found using the SEARCH function.

    Oil opinions are many, best use a FULL Synthetic oil such as Amsoil or the others mentioned. Changing your oil & filter frequently is one of the best preventive maintenance tasks you can perform, especially on a high performance engine.

    Hope that helps.

    What "weight" oil do you run in your truck / car ? No difference.
    A 20 - 50 blend usually will work almost anywhere, just as long as you always let your engine warm up (allowing the oil to reach the top end of your engine) every time you "cold start" your vehicles.

    What hurts engines is when individuals just crank the engine until it starts then soon after throw it in gear. See it happen all the time. But if the vehicle has only been sitting for a short period of time, everything important should still be lubricated (did I just contradict myself) ???

    Pure synthetic oil is always your best choice.
