    Default Changing of Gear Oil & recommendation for engine oil? (Mehran & Alto)

    hi..

    *****Gear Oil *****
    I do change the engine oil of my cars on regular intervals but am not sure if gear oil needs to be changed. Will appreciate your advise on the following two

    1. mehran, around 6 years old run around 50k+, do I need to get its gear oil changed?
    2. Alto, one year old, run around 3,000 km. Should I change the gear oil?


    *****Engine Oil*****
    and while we are on it, which engine oil is the best? i used to use Shell but have recently used FUCHS for my mehran.

    I need to change the engine oil for Alto as its run around 3,000 km and I've never changed its oil since I bought it last year. Should I go with FUCHS?

    consult owners manual regarding oil changing interval. suzuki normally recommends to change gear oil after 40,000km.

    Patriotism is when love of your own people comes first; nationalism, when hate for people other than your own comes first.

    gear oil to be changed at 40,000 km interval.

    Change gear oil of you mehran. for Alto, company changes gear oil after first 5000 km
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    1- Gear oil should be changed as per mentioned in the manual. Normally after 40,000 Km, as extreme pressure additive it depletes causing wear of gear.
    2- For engine oil API level mentioned on the can is critical. If you are using Fuchs Super GT 20W-50, it is API SL, which is good enough for 5000 Km. If you are using Fuchs Super Formula, it is API SF, good for 3000 Km. if you choosed Fuchs PCNG oil, if is API SJ, good for 3500-4000 km.
    Fuchs is German brand and very good quality oil.
