    Cool Honda City, How long should one let the engine Idle before driving

    Hi guyz, I Have Honda City 2008 IDSI. Can anyone please clear following queries revolving in my mind since months.

    There is a Myth: Let your engine warm up for several minutes before driving.. How long should one let the engine Idle ?

    I have been using Caltex 10,30w red engine oil should it be changed after every 4,000 miles? i usually drive it on CNG

    Which Coolant is good for Honda City ?

    Please assist.

    Brother it takes 30 sec or max 2 min before the oil proper flowing starts in circulation.

    Using 5/30 will be ideal for City rather than 10/30.
    Total Quartz 9000 Fully synthetic 5/30 SN price 2800/4L. SCI 6~7K
    PTT Performa 5/30 SN price 2550/4L. SCI ~6K

    If wanna go for more longer change interval, then use 5/40.

    Cold engines consume more fuel
    Discussed several times engine warm ups not required with modern day oils

    I am using caltex fully synthetic and drain after 9000kms in my idsi
    Zix xq quantity used to reduce, so left that
