Pinging sound from the engine
beamus
recently changed my oil. I replaced it with Mobile synthetic 0-30. I have noticed a pinging sound since the oil change. Is this a serious matter and how can it be fixed.

The car is 1990 w124.

pinging or ticking?

0-30 synthetic is a very lightweight oil....I would not recommend it for the M103. The M103 really, really likes 15-40 diesel oil. -- Rotella-T 15-40 is my favorite.

In complete agreement with ps2cho, the Rotella diesel-type oils provide just the right "cushioning" (even though that's not an exactly appropriate term) for the rockers and valve gear. The zinc additive within it is also excellent for helping keep soot in suspension so that it doesn't tend to wear on the moving parts within the engine.

Love it and I'll never switch to anything below it's grade.
