thanks simonarius for your help the reg thing doesnt work for me,maybe its because im in ireland,i got an oil recommendation of the castrol site,and it was castrol edge 0w-30ive never used it before on any car ive owned,just want to see which would be the best as the car has high mileage.

GTX is a semi synthetic oil, and a good one at that,,if the engine is not smoking there is not reason why you should not use a fully synthetic oil though this is much more expensive but will go for longer periods without changing
