Oil se sf

Exerpts from the link: Standards SA to SF are considered obsolete. The current standard is backservicable to these standards. S G = Service typical of gasoline engines in passenger cars, vans, and light trucks beginning with the 1989 model year S H = 1994 provides improved control of engine deposits,

SF: Obsolete: CAUTION - Not suitable for use in most gasoline-powered automotive engines built after 1988. May not provide adequate protection against build-up of engine sludge. SE: Obsolete: CAUTION - Not suitable for use in gasoline-powered automobile engines built after 1979. SD: Obsolete Category SJ was adopted in 1996 to describe engine oil first mandated in 1997. It is for use in service typical of gasoline engines in present and earlier passenger cars, vans, and light trucks operating under manufacturers recommended maintenance procedures. In summary, API SJ represents an improved quality level of motor oil vs API SH. API SJ oils can be used in any applications where SH oils were being appropriately used. So if your owner’s manual calls for an API SE, SF, SG or SH motor oil - API SJ will work just fine. SA through SE OBSOLETE-- Use SF/SG or SH unless you find motorcycle oil which still meets the original rating that your bike calls for in the owner's manual. I am not familiar with any SA/SB/SC/SD/SE rated oils still on the market, but there may be some available for special vintage class bikes (bikes built between 1910 and 1970). In most cases where motorcycle oil producers show comparisons between their products and automotive oils, you will find them using SE- or SF-rated oils as the "automotive standard." These are oils that were designed and rated for the cars of 10 to 20 years ago. SA through SE OBSOLETE -- Use SF/SG or SH unless you find motorcycle oil which still meets the original rating that your bike calls for in the owner's manual. I am not familiar with any SA/SB/SC/SD/SE rated oils still on the market, but there may be some available for special vintage class bikes (bikes built between 1910 and 1970). In the section about maintaining the oil level and oil changes it states that SG,SF oil is recomended. WHAT!I don't even have any SG,SF hanging around in the garage! After I cleaned the driveway yesterday and the engine was nice and ))HOT ( ( I change the oil as the OM calls for the 1st OCI @ 5 hrs.

It has a 4-cycle engine and you don't need to mix gas & oil. Just talked with someone from Troy-Bilt, and they said that they only recommend SAE 30, that has a weight of SF SG SH SJ SL or SM.

The composition of engine oil is always evolving as new discoveries are made, so the defined classifications follow suit with the evolution of oil quality. The American Petroleum Institute (API) defines specifications for engine oils, such as SG or SE. Engine oil manufacturers, in turn, label containers with the oil rating. So if your owner’s manual calls for an API SE, SF, SG or SH motor oil - API SJ will work just fine. The API Service Category Classification System: Engine oils are currently classified by a two letter code. SA through SE OBSOLETE -- Use SF/SG or SH unless you find motorcycle oil which still meets the original rating that your bike calls for in the owner's manual. I am not familiar with any SA/SB/SC/SD/SE rated oils still on the market, but there may be some available for special vintage class bikes (bikes built between 1910 and 1970).

My John Deere mower has the hydrostatic transmission, and is low on fluid. The manual says "SAE 10W30 engine oil with API classifications of SE, CC, or CD is recommended in the transmission." That's all great, but I can't find such oil at any of the local auto parts stores, and the guys SF: Obsolete: CAUTION - Not suitable for use in most gasoline-powered automotive engines built after 1988. May not provide adequate protection against build-up of engine sludge. SE: Obsolete: CAUTION - Not suitable for use in gasoline-powered automobile engines built after 1979. SD: Obsolete Category SJ was adopted in 1996 to describe engine oil first mandated in 1997. It is for use in service typical of gasoline engines in present and earlier passenger cars, vans, and light trucks operating under manufacturers recommended maintenance procedures.

Use only high detergent, premium quality motor oil certified to meet API Service Classification SF or SG (shown on container). The use of additives is unnecessary and will only increase operating expenses. Do not use oils with graphite or molybdenum additives as they may adversely affect clutch operation."

S G = Service typical of gasoline engines in passenger cars, vans, and light trucks beginning with the 1989 model year S H = 1994 provides improved control of engine deposits, SF: Obsolete: For 1988 and older engines. SE: Obsolete: CAUTION - Not suitable for use in gasoline-powered automobile engines build after 1979. SD: Obsolete: CAUTION - Not suitable for use in gasoline-powered automobile engines build after 1971. Use in more modern engines may cause unsatisfactory performance or equipment harm.

When purchasing oil, the oil has a quality level (API Service). There are many different categories/types, such as SG/CD, SF, SM, SA, SB, SC, SE, to list a few. Today when I purchased oil, all the available viscosities and brands were SM. I have a 1993 Ford van with a 4.9-liter 6-cylinder engine. However both SE & SF are obsolete oils that you should not use in any vehicle. SE was a classification used from 1971-79 and SF was used from 1979-88.
