My alto VXR 2005 (145000 KM driven) having issue of throwing water from reservoir due to head gasket problem. Engine was in very good running condition and not reducing any oil. I have repaired and and mechanic also changed the rings, valve seals, timing belt, bearings, water-pump, oil pump repaired, some clutch related parts etc to avoid and further problem. it cost me about 18.5k .(5500 labor remaining for good quality parts).
Now i have few question
- how many Kms are required for break inn (running) and how to drive the car during this period.(till now about 150 km completed all on CNG sometimes with 2 person and always AC on)
- I'm using Zic Hiflo 20W50 from day 1st. Should i continue using this or switch to 10W40.
- When to change the oil?
I haven't seen the engine myself but according to machine it was in very good condition even after this much mileage. I always change oil after 3500km and also used lequi moly ceratec in it. there was no sign of rust as well because i always use caltax coolant.
