Would like to know which oil to go for for my Alto VXR its done 1,500Km(new car), should i change the oil now or wait for the 5,000Km mark. Yesterday I checked the oil in the car it was full and looked clean and new.
Also in the warranty and service book let (which is meant for Liana, Swift, Cultus, Alto APV & Jimny) it gives the following oil recomendations;
1) Brake Oil: SAE 1703 or DOT3, DOT4
2) Engine Oil: SAE 10W-40 (SG) OR SAE 20W-50 (SG) (UPDATE: Went for Shell Hilux HX-7 with excellent results, see post #25)
3) Transmission and Transfer Oil: SAE 75W-85 (GL-4) MULTIGRADE (UPDATE: Went for Zic Gear FF 75W85 API GL-4 with excellent results, see post #25)
4) <S>Diffrential Oil: SAE 85W-140 (GL-5) MULTIGRADE</S>
Confused on this as I understand ONLY Engine oil & Brake Oil are for Alto rest oils are mentioned for the other cars? OR Alto also need Transmission and Transfer Oil & <S>Diffrential Oil</S>? If yes the how to check them?
Please also tell of milage before changeing the oils.
