Re: 95 24 valve vx

To find out what to use and how much, I use this:

https://www.penriteoil.com.au/product-selector

Select your vehicle and they will tell you exactly what you need. SuperCheap regularly have 40-60% off Penrite oils too.

I have a 92 manual , so cant help with the filler location
