    Exclamation Exclamation urgent advice required.......

    dear experts,

    car engine has done 90000 km and has little bit noise and oil reducing problem about 100 ml to 150 ml during 3000 km,
    so can we use fully synthetic oil in that? or can we use liqui moly ceratec for improvement?

    any one has experience liqui moly ceratec and how about its result?
    is it result oriented product or wastage of money?

    As per my perception ur car is behaving completely normal , lil bit oil reduction is un avoidable . for the noise, take a mechanic stethoscope and first determine the exact source coz there are plenty of noises in a start engine. Btw plz share the method by which u r measuring these oil reduction figures like 100 , 150 ml

    well, I do agree with u, so many sources r there to create noise, I tried to find out but diffirent mechanic says its normal, some says your camshaft creating noise, some says its head valves r creating noises.......

    so im not satisfied with the ans, jitnay moun utni batain

    well now let me tell u the method by measuring the oil.

    after driven the car around 2000 to 2500 kms, i need to top up the upper mark of dipstick wich has been reduce a little from upper mark of dipstick
    then i have to pour around 100 to 200 ml for top up

    I purchase 4Lt oil, car takes around 3.7 ltr , I keep remaining oil for topup

    I use fully synthetic in my 160,000kms driven city vario. With change interval of 5000kms.

    Go for Shell Helix HX7 Ultra fully synthetic.

    totally acceptable, 500ml per 3000km is also acceptable. Its better to use Castrol 10W40 and drain it at 3000-3500 with oil filter.

    thanks dear bro, but to be honest im so confused people made me scared, switching to fully synthetic will increase oil reducing problem and may be seal leakage, and will increase sound more

    infect I purchased it from open market, really dont know the actual mileage may b the previous owner revised the odo meter.

    but one thing is 100% confirmed when ever I checked or replaced the spark plugs its totally in great condition just like zero meter engine.
