Nothing wrong with a Paj. Reviewing the oils you use, most people recommend the Castrol product for the engine. My brother has a Paj and since changing to Castrol it stopped smoking.

I don't know what was in it when we got it but I put Castrol Magnatec in it, seems to start to smoke a little bit earlier than it did before.

Any idea which Castrol oil he uses?

If its got alot of kms on it run something slightly thicker than whats reccomended and it should help.
Eg, if it states 20w-40 run a 20w-50, My old girl had half a million on her and it didnt smoke a bit!

Just had a reply from my brother and he isn't happy with the Castrol he is presently using, he is going back to Pennzoil. The Pajero forum recommend the Castrol and what the Castrol recommendation for your engine. I am running Penritel HPR-30 (20W-60) and happy with that and may move to HPR-15 (15W-60) on the next change

Nothing at all wrong with the Pajero. I also have a 96 NJ, and it's been everywhere. Am interested in the oil discussion though, I use a heavier oil and don't get as much smoke, but be it coincidence or otherwise, the lifter noise (tapping) seems to last a bit longer after startup. Does anyone else get that, I have heard it is common in the Paj's

Wont go wrong with a Superpaj mate. A wonderful relationship between a man and his 4b has begun.
You may not know it now, but one day!
(I am perhaps just a little bias thou.)

Mate just bought a Pajero 1996 GLX last week, took it out for its first run yesterday and was bloody impressed. Comfort excellent, power not a problem....this one has a Pajero sports system in it...sounds like a V8 climbing up the mountains. They are an excellent 4WD
