New product from Penrite just released which may help cleaning and assisting in regeneration of diesel particulate filters (DPF's). Its not recommended t for use in vehicles not fitted with DPF's, which should use the normal diesel injector cleaner.

If you need to replace the CVT fluid, I would recommend you DIY if possible, and if it isn't possible, go to the dealer. I wouldn't be too surprised if many independent shops would either use the wrong fluid, or put the new fluid in a machine that al

I run 10W-40 in the 396 that is in my 70 Monte Carlo. I tried 10W-30 in it when I first got it back from being rebuilt but I wasn't happy with the oil pressure so went back to the 10W-40 that I had used before. Wayne
