Oil + Filter

Hi Gazo,
i assume you have not got the owners manual???
Have a look at the bonnet lid, there should be a sticker on the left under side of it.
It states what grade oil you should use, my Turbo says 5w-30's but running on 0w-30 but cant see there being a problem with 5w-40.
Local spares shops have reference books which will tell you the ideal oil spec for your model.
If its still under warranty, you should use a genuine filter available from any Daihatsu dealership to keep it valid.
If not any brand filter, from any Parts shop, they are all the same.
Regards who makes them?? probably a factory in Japan with a name no one can pronounce!!
