What is the type of oil used in the supercharger of a 1998 Buick Park Ave.
The oil from the dealer is a very small bottle and it is thin and clear.
Just want to know what it is as the dealers want about $6.00 for four
ounces. A little pricy I might say. Any thoughts on this Thanks
I don't know, but I'd buy it and watch the thing like a hawk. Once
the seal starts leaking the oil will slowly leak away, then the nose
cone starts ratteling.
The cheapest rebuilt is about $700 (from Superchargers and Accessories
in Lincoln, CA,
near Sacramento), and new ones are 3 times that. Installation is 2
hours, or about $150.
Happened to me on our 95 PA.
