I'm using Tokicos right now on my 07 Sportero.
It's good, price was pretty decent too.

Prob not as good as OE/Branded, but also not as expensive ;)

Hello friends. Any local source for a Sportero 4m41 2010 turbo? Considering rebuild of the turbo or just flat out replacement.

Anyone using Amsoil Multi Vehicle Synthetic ATF. I find the SP III gets dark/burnt too quickly....probably under 15,000km.

I' ve read previous posts far back as 2013/16 wrt the Amsoil multi vehicle atf where it was noted that the spIII is also used in cvt transmissions and one should not risk using the multi vehicle atf even if Amsoil says its compatible.

I'm hoping to just do double drain and refill. Feedback would be appreciated

I am using it so far about 30K KM since its replaced

Before I was using the SP111 but I didn't have an issue however I used to change every 25K km as the sp111 looses viscosity

Hello good day, can anyone advise what's the best engine oil to go with for a 2016 L200 with 4D56T (2.5 DiD)? My mileage is below 100,000 km and I see recommendations to use 5W30 up to 15W40.

What brand and grade are you all using? Especially the oils that quiet this engine down.

Oils are a pretty touchy subject as there is no clear right or wrong oil to use. Having said that, I can offer suggestions based on actual user feedback from actual L200 owners.

Note that the recommendations you saw to 5W30 up to 15W40 may be a little misleading, you should really look to you owners manual for the correct viscosity. I may be subject to correction but I believe these engine are to use 15W40 according to the manual (in that case you may get away with 5W40, but not 5W30)

The general feedback seems to suggest that fully synthetic oils work best (i.e. quieter operations, less burnoff, longer change intervals). As I mentioned before, you may get away with 5W40 up to 15W40 due to the fact that both grades will operate the same at operating temperature.

Some of the popular brands being used without issue are Valvoline, Amsoil, Amsoil Signature Series and NP.

You can use this info to select an oil best suited to you
