Hi, I bought a Bentley Turbo RL 1989.

Not in very good condition. But I'm doing it. Mainly I want to get acquainted with his technique and get another one in the future. I want to ride a Bentley turbo all my life. It's my childhood dream.

But so far I'm scared of how many sensors and electronics are around. What they could simply do complicated.

I apologize for my English.

Hi Edward, your english is good.
89 is much less complicated than 96 and later.


One important point, do not start those electronic cars with booster, jumper, cables.
Have a premium battery fully loaded.
ECU electronic do not like low battery or electrical jump


I recommend a permanent automatic charger to keep battery full.
Low battery are very destructive too for electronic.


Those cars are reliable, drive yours as much as possible, regularly.


Be Welcome

Hi thank you for accepting,

* I also think cars must be driven. This didn't go a long time. I wonder using rr363. It is forbidden in the workshop manual. Only LHM is possible. According to the manual I bought Castrol Hyspin aws 22, but it is not green. I'm afraid to put it there - the original fillings are green LHM.

I'll be careful about the voltage in the system. Alternator not working I need to put it right. At idle the engine didn't want to run when I lowered the air plate sensor so it's okay.

In your car you should only put LHM or LHM +.
Exactly the same used in Citroen since the 70 ies.


Find a Citroen agent and buy LHM +, which should be green.


RR 363 is forbidden for your car, it concerned the previous generation, SY = Silver SHadow.

Your generation is called SZ .


LHM is mineral , RR 363 is synthetic and should never be mixed or used in the wrong car.

What is Castrol hyspin AWS 22 used for? I bought 20 liters. I wanted to buy a classic LHM, but in the workshop manual is Castrol hyspin AWS 22. And the servo belongs to what oil?

Edward, always read before you proceed. Start here with the service manuals.

I would have advised LHM / LHM + , I don't know the other one.
Can you post a picture from the workshop with this recommandation ?


I don't<say it's not good, I just don't know.
It seems to be mineral hydraulic oil, but is it really same as LHM or waht<R-R requires ???

If you look here down, page 4, I think there is no doubt , you should not use
Castrol hyspin AWS 22 in brake and self leveling system

http://rrtechnical.info/sz/sz87/d.pdf

* For hydraulic braking and levelluing system, = what yyou need for your car

Castrol Hydraulic sytem mineral oil = LHM ( it was written on the original castrol can sold with the car, those can are no more available as Castrol stop producing them 2 years ago)
There is no other oil recommandation.

Here is an example of original Castrol LHM with plug to refill
https://www.a1autopartsniddrie.com.a...oil-plus-500ml

* For power operated hood reservoir = what is required only for hydraulic convertible top mechanism = you don't need it

BP...
Castrol Hypsin VG 22
Castrol Hypsin AWS 22

Conclusion, according to this document, Castrol Hypsin AWS 22 is recommended ONLY for power operated hood reservoir = for the hydraulic system for the top for convertible car




Page 89/ 716 is saying the same if you read well, except that it suggest only one Castol Hypsin instead of 2 for the Hood, probably a more recent document.

http://heritage.bentleymotors.com/en...ad/TSD4700.pdf

Your lecture of the document was not precise enough...the original workshop document is clear,

For me there is no doubt and you were right to ask us, you should not use Castrol Hypsin AW2 22 in brake and self leveling system and your car does not need it as you do jot have a convertible.

Hydraulic oil are very specific, specially for brake and suspension with high pressur and mechanical strtengths, which is definentely not comparable to a top / hood convertible system.

You should try to give back or resell those Castrol Hyposin AWS 20 l and buy LHM +

Hi Edward
Your english is very good!
Only use lhm or lhm+ in your brake reservoirs you will destroy your car if you get it wrong! it would ruin every seal in the braking and suspension! costing thousands of pounds to put right.
There are a lot of sensors and solenoids around but are reliable , the fuel injection is very reliable being mostly Bosch mechanical as on VW. Porsche Merecedes etc.
Like Jean said never start with boost cables ,charge the battery first and keep it charged and all will be fine.
Mike
PS Has anybody seen a picture of the engine bay with every sensor/actuator labeled ?
