    pls advise this
    I dont think its true.

    You can switch to any good mineral or semi synthetic with current API like SL, SM or SN any time.

    There might be a temporary issue while switching to synthetic after running mineral for a long time with out following proper oil change interva . It is because synthetic contains strong detergent and cleaning agents which will break down any carbon deposits on the piston and cylinder region. This will make the new oil loose its colour and will clog up the oil filter in few days. Piston deposits removed by the new oil also makes way for some combustion pressure to leak out of the chamber or in some cases oil reduction issue may arise.

    I hope you got the point.

    The issue is understanding the SAE 5W-20, what does this mean

    SAE defines standard for motor oil viscosity grade

    Viscosity of oil is its ability to flow at a specific temperature. The higher the viscosity longer it will take it to flow at a certain temperature simply saying it is thicker or heavier. Lower viscosity oil will flow quicker at specific temperature simply thinner or lighter.

    5W-20 means that it has multigrade viscosity within a specific temperature range. Simply saying it has characteristic of more than one oil.

    W means winter or cold i.e 0 F (-18c)

    5W means it will give optimum protection in cold starting and cold running even at sub zero climate as it will circulate through the engine quicker.

    20 defines the oil dynamic viscosity at high sheer rate (150C). 20 being very low will not provides optimum protection against engine wear at 40+ C weather and stop and go city traffic. It may give fuel economy (2% max) but may also cause oil pressure drops at higher rpms causing metal to metal contact ( 30% reduction in engines service life ) which I am sure you dont want.

    ZIC OW-30 (Fully synthetic)API-SN in winter (DEC - FEB)
    ZIC 10W-40 (Semi Synthetic) API-SN in Spring, Summer & Autumn (MARCH - NOVEMBER)

    valid for new PS Alto running in Punjab and sindh.

    As you have asked Xulfiqar (and he is more than welcome to correct me) so you can wait for his reply.
    you mean we should use
    ZIC OW-30 (Fully synthetic)API-SN in winter (DEC - FEB)
    ZIC 10W-40 (Semi Synthetic) API-SN in Spring, Summer & Autumn (MARCH - NOVEMBER)

    Yes. ODI for both is 5000 Kms max.

    But if you want one oil all the way then ZIC A will be a reasonable choice.

    If budget is no issue and you will be using OEM oil filter you can also go for Shell Helix ultra for your new alto with ODI upto 8k Kms.

    dont overload at leas for first 1000 km

    winter season consider to be best for the runnings of new cars

    in last buhat buhat mubarik ho for new ride and do post us pics one u get delivery.
    Ahmad is the following gear ratios are ok to change on the following speed

    1st = Start moving from 0Kmph to 10 Kmph
    2nd = 10Kmph
    3rd = 30 Kmph
    4th = 40 Kmph
    5th = 70 Kmph

    Please suggest any expert....
