Porsche Crest Oil for 924s

Yesterday I picked up a 1988 924S. First thing is first though, and thats an oil change. I was hoping someone would have the owners manual for the 924S and would be able to tell me, or recommend an oil to use in the engine.


Thanks

first job is get the belts changed if not already documented (bullet proof) - then worry about the oil afters - peoples here drive different oil due to climate changes ........ 1st job on the car should be belts ...... I know it doesnt help you right now .... just some advice

Personally i use 10W-40. You may want to use 10W-30 considering you are in an area with a warmer overall temperature.

Umm, there's 2 oil threads going including this one.
Mobil 1. Since you're in florida, I would run 15W50.

I use Mobil 1 15w50. I used Castrol 20w50 before that. I've had no problems with either one.
