I just bought a 1989 900 Turbo. The owner didn't have the car's owner's manual, so I've been searching for what oil weight to use. I can't seem to find anything on it.
What oil weight should i use?

I'm pretty sure the owners handbook says 10 W 30 or thereabouts. 5 W 30 is fine too. I use 5 W 40 with no problems. Fully synthetic is better for turbos. Used to use Genuine Saab, then Mobil 1, now some Vauxhall branded stuff. Change every 5000 miles, less if you prefer.
