    Default Urgent advice regarding Oil Change

    Hi there fellow PakWheelers !!! I hope you're all doing fine.

    I had gotten my Honda City 2014 back in June 2016 and since then I had its oil changed 2 times from FILTER HOUSE (Ferozpur Road) as a friend of mine suggested to use Meguin 5W-50 (MOLYGEN) fully synthetic oil.
    Please remember that I bought my car second hand with a odometer reading of 41K.

    Now coming back to Lahore from my hometown (Rahim yar Khan) I suddenly noted that my car has done its mileage on (2nd Meguin bottle) too, so I took a quick pitstop near Sahiwal and had my oil and filters changed but since Meguin wasn't there, so I had to opt for Shell Helix 10W-40 oil and standard filters.
    But the mechanic said that I have to change my oil after 3000 kms. I got Shell at 56,274 and it should be changed on 59,274 but right now my meter reading is around 59,600 something.

    I just want to inquire that should I go for Miguin 5W-50 again as I did not have to worry about my oil change after 3 months because I was told that Miguin needs changing after 6000-7000 kms.

    Please suggest me about good oils and those that do not need changing after every two months as I drive my car around in Lahore city usually for 20 kms a day on average.

    I am new to this stuff hence I am posting my query here to be resolved profesionally and quickly.

    Thanks alot.

    Abbas bhai to be very honest, yeh meri pehli gaari hay aur jis banday ke sath jaker li, ussi ne mujhay choona lagwa diya. So i don't know ke previous owner konsa oil use kr rha tha. He said something about shell but nothing more. Ab main Imported oils (Miguin) dalwaon ya Shell he theek hay ? Are you using the above mentioned oil for Honda City ?

    I think it is not too much old car n you should use 5w30 that's will work for you n will work upto 7k.
    10w40 shell will work 5k at least.
    By the way what is honda recommending

    Thanks alot for this recommendation. I think Honda recommend using their own oils not the others that are available in the market.
