Car oil isn't a problem.you just want the right weight 10W /40 is not "energy conserving" oil and won't hurt your clutch.
It could be that your clutch just need an adjustment. That's easy to do since you plut some slack in the cable and its all set.
If the adjustment doesn't do it, then it might be time for a clutch.

I use Mobil 1 4T Motorcycle Racing oil (synthetic) 10W-40. Years ago there was lots of worry and discussion by motorcycle groups about whether or not older bikes could use synthetic. I researched it and decided it was fine. Never any problems, only improvements. After witnessing how clean the bike is now after 4 years with synthetic I wouldn't run with anything else. Our bikes are air-cooled. Temperature kills oil so unless you change every 1500 miles, I'd stick with synthetic. It does cost a lot more; but, IMHOP well worth it.
No bashing or flaming intended. But from what I can see here (Norway), the "Motorcycle Racing" oil is nothing special. Just overpriced oil in small containers.. I did run this myself once a couple of years ago.
The last years I have run a "Combo Oil" from "Felleskj°pet" (A supplier to farmers. They got "everything"). There oil is cheap because they sell lots of it. The oil is from known makers. Can be from Mobil, Castrol, Shell+++. Dont know whats on the can, but its the highest standard.
Im considering using there 100% synthetic oil In my Rebel:
Should this work ok on my rebel? If needed, I can translate the text.
We dont realy got a problem with heat here
Any advice, tips or suggestions I make is my belief. So I take no responsibility if something goes wrong while someone is following them!
