With a comprehensive range of high powered, high capacity engines its important to pay attention to the correct engine oil recommendation.

All engines require synthetic products respecting Ford and BMW specifications, with viscosity grades ranging from 5W-20, 5W-30 and 5W-40. Engine oil change interval is typically 15,000 miles / 12 months, but this will be dependent on conditions and application, ie towing heavy loads.

ZF Automatic transmissions use a specific Lifeguard fluid, or Dexton III synthetic, its important to check the recommendation and that the product meets the correct ZF classification the same goes for transfer case and differentials, these are highly rated units and the lubricant plays a key part in the componants performance. Coolant is a long-life OAT type product, brake fluid DOT 4 synthetic. Power steering is Dexron III synthetic product.
