    Angry oil for Honda city

    Dear all!
    I have purchased honda city 2007 but it has problem that it is reducing engine oil ,first time i used honda synthetic oil but after i realised that car is reducing engine oil than i switch to Havoline 20W 50 ,now reduction in oil is relatively less but engine sound has been chaged.
    What do you suggest what oil should i use for my honda city.

    Regards

    20w50 is too thick for this car and API of havoline 20w50 is SG i guess.

    Bad choice i would say.

    I had checked with a mechanic ,whom told me that piston ring of any one of valve is worn out.So i decided to change the piston rings and now Ahamdulillah the oil reduction problem is eliminated.Previously i has been using Havoline 20W50 and now iam using ZIC A+ 10W30 and there is no issue.This cost me around 9000 rupees (1500Rs TP standard size ring set, 3200 Rs gasket original , 2200Rs mobiloil ZIC A+ and rest is mechnic labour cost).
    But be sure that mechanic must be competent otherwise you will hear many difrrent sounds from your car enginee which should not there in Honda enginee.
    Any way good thing which i observed about Honda engine was that even on worn out rings the valves and piston sleeve was in very good condition.

    What about the knocking that you mentioned in one of your posts, is that gone or still present?
