    Get yourself a good synthetic oil such as Mobil 1 or the new Havoline. They will be 5w-30, but will work wonders for your new ride. Don't be fooled, 5w-30 will not break down as easily as any other mineral based oil.

    Last time, I used ZIC XQ 5W40 and engine is running much smoother now.

    To Much Thin Oil Is Good For Starting ...Oil Circulation But In Extreme Weather Conditions....Like Summers In Pakistan When Temp Reaches To 40 degrees Too....Its Better To Use Something around 10w-40 Atleast.....!!
    20w-50 is recommended for extreme summers.......rest 5w-30 will work fine...!!

    Go for shell helix ultra 5w-40 fully synthetic oil. or clatex Havoline fully synthetic 5w-30. both are best oils but i like shell helix ultra 5w-40.
    Oils are divided into grades (not weights) such as a 20, 30 or 40 grade oils. This represents the viscosity range at operating temperature. But it is NOT the actual viscosity as we shall see. The issue is that viscosity is temperature dependent.
    Older automotive owner manuals often recommended one oil for the summer and another for the winter. This is still necessary for air cooled engines but is no longer a consideration in pressurized water cooled engines. These engine blocks are kept at around 212 F all year round. The oil is around the same temperature as well. This allows for a single grade oil all year round. Again, this is not the same as on the track where the coolant temperature is slightly higher and the oil temperature is much higher.
    The greatest confusion is because of the way motor oils are labeled. It is an old system and is confusing to many people. I know the person is confused when they say that a 0W-30 oil is too thin for their engine because the old manual says to use 10W-30. This is wrong.

    More confusion occurs because people think in terms of the oil thinning when it gets hot. They think this thinning with heat is the problem with motor oil. It would be more correct to think that oil thickens when it cools to room temperature and THIS is the problem. In fact this is the problem. It is said that 90 percent of engine wear occurs at startup. If we are interested in engine longevity then we should concentrate our attention at reducing engine wear at startup.

    with time our education/knowledge grows....

    IF your temperature needle is in control and coolant is inside for better cooling...
    needle works on thermo switch, so in winter & summer it would be in middle for same temperature say 50 degree.
    you can use good synthetic like 5W-30 (Caltex) or 0W-30 (ZIC).

    Car in subject is CITY, so the owner should look for Mobil-1 5w-50. or 5w-40 (ENOC, ZIC, Shell)

    original Mobil-1 10w-40 is full synthetic as it costs 2600~2800.
