In the service book for my -98 9-5 it states that oil should be changed every 20000 km (in miles that is about 12000 miles), so I donīt think that changing every 5000 miles is necessary. >2) Must I use synthetic oil? Personally I would recommend that you use synthetic oil, I have always used synthetic oil, no problems, use a high standard oil, not some cheap junk. >3) Someone suggested I use something in a red bottle called Mystery >Motor oil additive or something similar to that name. They said to add >4 oz. to every oil change. The manual says not to use additives. Is >this person correct? Thanks. Donīt use additives, they are just a way to spend money for nothing. /Mats
