  • Replace Engine Oil based on recommended Service Schedule by Manufacturer either based on Kms or Time Usage which ever earlier
  • Choosing Correct Oil Viscosity and Grade

Timely replacement of Engine Oil is a key Critical component for Long Lasting Engine Performance along with Refinement and Smooth Driving Output.

 

Some Important FAQ Before you Change Car Engine Oil

 

Q, My Car Running is Low, Should i Still replace Engine Oil ?

A. Oil Molecules tends to breakup over period of time and if not replaced over recommended schedule then this can end up leading to thinner oil. Now car when driven with broken oil molecules and thinner oil leads to friction among engine components with faster wear & tear.

So even if your Car Running is lower say covered just 3000 Kms a year - should go with replacement of Engine Oil for Ideal Protection to Car Engine

 

Q. What is the Difference in 0W-16, 0W-20, 5W-30 Oil Viscosity Grade ?

A. Viscosity Grade is basically the thickness been defined for Engine Oil and defines the stress holding capacity

  • Like in above 0W means Winter Grade - Vehicle can start easily in even Coldest or Freezing Conditions. The Oil is relative thin enough to free flow across all components, while 5W is slight thicker Oil
  • For Second Part (Temperature Grade) - Here it means the maximum thickness of Oil when Car Engine attains 100 Degree Celsius. 20 is slight thin, 30 is slight thick and 40 is thicker Engine Oil

Its important to follow Oil recommendation as given in Owner Manual as this is what determines the flow of Oil to Engine Components providing the best protection against Friction.

 

Is Switching from Synthetic Oil to Mineral Oil or Mineral to Synthetic Oil a Problem ?

A. If your Car Engine has Synthetic Oil in the past and you plan to replace with Mineral Oil or had Mineral Oil in the past and you plan to replace with Synthetic Oil then do note that its Perfectly fine to replace with same. However Whats important

  • Choose Correct Oil Viscosity as what recommended in Owner Manual
  • Ensure that Oil should be drained in complete and Oil Filter be replaced along with same

Yes use all aftermarket synthetic oil. MGO is a low grade fuel efficiency promoting oil. Go with Idemitsu, Motul, and Castrol.

Yes, that is according to international norms for getting higher fuel efficiency. Stick to non Maruthi oil. Go for API SN 5w40 oils from Castrol, Motul, and Idemitsu. If you have a good budget try out Liqui Moly as well.
