    The previous owner used Total 10w40. I was thinking of switching to Caltex Havoline 10w30. What is your opinion?

    the oils to be used are commensurate with engine requirements - engines of the 80s and 90s require API SF or SG - hence Havoline motor oil used to be perfect for older models but not for newer models.

    open up the owners manual and see what oil is required - and it is very important that the engine oil temperature be right on, otherwise your degrades very quickly.

    Dear brother,
    Your English language skills are good but i want to request you to remain simple when you explain something to others...also explain it to the satisfaction of readers as we have very few experts on pakwheels like you! Can you explain what "engine oil temperature be right on" means pls??

    ^^
    Dear member, First of all Xulfiqar (like any body) is not duty bound to reply to any thread/post and no one can bound him to do anything the way he does not want. We have a lot to learn / ask from the guy, so we dont want him to hesitate in replying thinking whether his post will be understood or not.

    If you cant understand what he is saying like most of us still dont, then "Google" or just ask the question. Dont tell him how to do it.

    I think what Xulfiqar meant from Engine oil temperature be right on, is the normal engine operating temperature which will steam out the moisture from engine oil otherwise running engine cold (without T valve and T switch) will result in increased moisture contents in the oil making it loose its capability sooner than later causing over all engine service life to reduce.
