    Lightbulb Best / Better Engine Oil option for City 2010 AT

    Assalam u Alikum guys,

    so, i bought this 2010 city prosmatec. condition is good. I'm planning to have the oil change (donno what was before in it or when did the previous owner get the oil change...)

    I am here to get suggestion about a better engine oil for my car. its only petrol driven.

    wat i have in mind was Caltex Havolin '10/40' ? (i hope i wrote it correct...)

    i think its the same one Caltex Havolin formula ?

    anyways, i would appreciate expert or experienced opinions ...

    Thanks

    Shell Helix ultra with a genuine honda oil filter.
    Havoline would also work fine!

    i got my car a quick check for engine oil, the guy said no need to change the engine oil for now.

    he did the tuning thou (washed carburetor with petrol...) and changed the plugs. now, have to take it sumwhere else to check how genuine were those plugs, as the mechanics were not from Honda or any of my own.... they were the mechanics of the showroom guys.... (yes, in my op., i shudn't have let them touch the car.... :| )

    anyways, i also wanted to ask if/ when the power steering oil and transmission oil needs to be checked, replaced or just top-up is enuff to keep it going...?
