  1. Hi guys, doing my first oil change on my newly acquired 2008 Cayenne Base (V6). Looking online I'm confused on what oil specs I should be running. have found so many different bits of information, but here is what I gathered thus far... 2008 Porsche Cayenne V6 3.6L M55.01 Imputing the car information into major oil brand website's they all return 5w30 that is vw or Porsche certified... Mobile 1 ESP 5w30 Amsoil European 5w30 ESP Castrol EDGE 5W-30 Liqui Moly TOP TEC 4200 SAE 5W-30 or LONGLIFE III SAE 5W-30 I don't have the user manual, but found one online which I believe is for a 2009 Cayenne it states... Cayenne S, Cayenne GTS Porsche recommends . Recommended oil viscosity ranges dependent on ambient temperatures: Ambient temperature SAE Viscosity (seasonal) For all temperature ranges Cayenne (V6) 0W - 30 0W - 40 Engine Oil Recommendation - Porsche Cayenne 2009 Owner's Manual [Page 255] | ManualsLib WWW.MANUALSLIB.COM Looking online I see a lot people run 5w40 or 0w40. I know it can be dependent on climate, but I have never seen such a range of oils recommend for a car. I'm in Seattle so pretty mild climate. Leaning toward the Mobile 1 ESP 5w30. Curious why major oil manufactures suggest 5w 30 and what every think is truly the best?
