Ok cheers I'll stick with that oil. The problem now is the last time (first for me since I bought the car from my sister) I changed the oil around 4000 ago I used 10w 40 semi synthetic as advised by that motor factor at the time so I hope it's done no damage . The engine isn't using oil so I assume it's still a good un.
Yes like you I have always kept the oil clean in all my cars and bikes with regular oil and filter changes. It really is just common sense. There are a lot more types of oil around these days though. Anyway now that the question I asked has been answered i'll get on with the oil change tomorrow, weather permitting.
windy that's bloody good for 179k and it give me hope for my 133k engine. Mine doesn't seem to using oil either but I only do around 4k between oil changes so i can't say what it would be like after 12k + I've only had the car for 9 months.
As for the oil I've used, I have checked Haynes and it's in the range of usable oils so bugger it. I'm not going to worry.

or something in the gearbox (my worse fear). I...

I am now getting a similar knocking noise from the suspension. I have had the front of the car of the ground and i can confirm there is a small amount of play in just one drop arm.
This time the noise seems to come...
