    Thanks everyone.

    I guess the culprit is the thicker oil which i have used i.e. 10W40, shell helix HX-7, car vibarting a bit more and as far as i can understand due to thicker oil initial pick is not as good as it should be. Before today, i didn't know much about oil classification, but this site www.bobistheoilguy.com was really helpful. After gaining some information over the internet, i have come to know, 10W40 is a thicker oil. Thicker oil is more suitable to older cars where oil level goes down during driving. The shopkeeper didn't inform me this and i was stupid enough to buy it blindly I guess the 10W30 or 5w20 could be good for vtec. Lighter oil means less work for engine, hence a quieter engine. Now this thicker oil in my car needs to be flushed.

    If you guys have any experience which oil is the best for vtec-cvt, please do share.

    @ Retrograde

    I have CNG in my ride but hardly used it after 36k, and in 36k only 60% is on CNG. Also I am thinking to get rid of CNG, very likely that it is going to be uninstalled.

    @ RL589

    iridium plugs were installed at 35k and now car is at 46k.

    btw, which plugs you have in your car ? how you feel that response is improved?


    Also here is lengthy but very good article about vtec steermatic (Vtec/Jazz). Tell you pros & cons of steermatic ride.

    http://asia.vtec.net/Reviews/JazzVtec/index.html

    they somehow suggest this oil

    What oil , plugs would you guys recommend?


    @Islamabad members

    Do you guys go to Honda Pit Stop in Aabpara or to 1-9? Which place do you think has better service?

    get the tappets done,throttle body cleaned,gear oil changed ,plugs change nd brakes adjusted.this is wat u need after every 20k kms running.though gear oil change has to b done after 40k kms.

    @RL598
    bro sure u need tappet adjustment...u dnt feel anything but if u get the tappets done(correctly),ur gonna feel the difference.im not sure about steermatic but my idsi manual says i need it after every 20,000kms.nd i hav already got this job done 4 times nd gonna do it again after 8000kms(when my car hits 1 lakh kms) nd theres no harm in opening the tappet cover.nothing at all.nd if u havnt got this job done,i assume u havnt even got the throttle body cleaned throughly by opening it?i.e. detaching it frm the engine.
    i wud say get this job done nd u wud see improvment in every aspect.

    @bluntknife
    no brother 20k kms is for petrol engines, and old cng cars need to get this done even earlier,like @15k kms.but i do it after every 20,000kms,nd thats fine.

    wat exatly is a "LASER" iridum plug?

    Btw i hope price of parts,lubricants hasn't gone up again!

    Every time i visit the "pit stop" it seems everything has become more expensive.
    Leaves a big dent in my bank account!!

    Im not looking forward to my bill for this service as so much more work has to be done!

    @RL589
    Iridium for steermatic are NGK IZFR6k-13, the ones that you get for the civic are IZFR6k-11. You can use these but gap will need to be adjusted. As for performance, there will be no change, nor will the fuel economy be effected adversely. The only advantage is that they will last at least 3 times longer.

    @ahmebila
    You are right to the extent that valve clearance needs to be checked periodically but i can assure you that no actual adjustment is required but for cng run vehicles.

    I am going to the USA on the 27th, hopefully will get some goodies for my steermatic. If anyone, among the steermatic fraternity needs anything that doesnt require custom clearance, dont hesitate to ask.
