    Default city idsi 06decreasing oil level

    guys a frnd of mine has a 07 city idsi.driven almost 60k kms.engine in excellent condition no problem at all.

    the problem is that the engine is decreasing engine oil.he is using havolin formula oil.the car is on cng.there no smoke no leaking frm the engine or anything.

    i was talking to him n he told me one thing which cud has caused it,he drives like maniacs nd takes the rpm to very high ranges.nd many times he takes his car to 150km/h in 4th gear.i mean driving all the way to the red line.can this cause the low fuel levels?
    he tells me that almost one quater oil is vanished frm the engine...

    can anyone help?

    PS: Oil filter is valid for 5000Kms so at every 2nd oil change it has to be replaced.... Behtar yehi hy k not more than 2500Km.... in extreme conditions not more than 3000km at any cost....

    Well havoline formula is a thin oil ask him to some thick grade oil like 20-40w or 20-50w.

    2ndly ask him to change atleast 2 oils at 3000 KM.

    I always liked Castrol GTX oil its an old grade oil not really designed for an engine like CITY but i can asure you this oil stops any oil decreasing problems you have

    He can try Shell Ultra oil properties are same like formula but its a bit thick than havoline formula.

    Even i use zic.... a bit expensive than others but as i said, no compromise on oils... (u can get power oil in Rs. 120/- for steering, but i use Honda geniune oil which is for Rs. 700/-... same power oil of Rs. 120/- can b used in auto transmission but i use zic, the 1.0Ltr bottle of which is for Rs. 380/-)..... just for the sake k oil roz roz change nahi krna hota aur ye thora expense can save u from bigger expense (God Forbid)...

    My suggestion is, if u have this much of travel, don't use havoline, use some cheap oil like shell, GTX, or sharlu wagera so that u can change it after 2500. These cheap oils r OK for 2500Kms.... tumhara expense b kam rahega, car b theek rahe gi..... Yaar it take only 5mins to change oil but this sacrifise of 5min would save u sacrifice of life time

    tell him to use some thick oil at the next oil change. if it is due to valves this will help a bit. incase of faulty valve seals there's usually smoke in the morning.
    but i think that the culprit are rings as the guy drives at too high rpm and i think they are worn out.

    :O apka to phir os waqt har 3rd day oil change hota hoga

    well bro i also dnt want to compromise on the oils.i also put the original honda transmission oil whcih set me back 1120rs.for 2 ltrs. i never knew 7000kms is wayy to much for one of the best oils in market.but still i wont b putting in cheaper oils like shell.i wud rather drive lesser on my current choice of oil.

    guys i think i wud switch to havoline cng oil nd use if for 3000kms.as 2000 or 2500kms is too less.will it b ok?
    nd @waqas,i will tell my frnd abt that gtx oil treatment which u stated in ur post..

    perf is related to good flow of air and fuel mix. that is why its behaving like new car.

    high reving will move oil fast and with more pressure inside engine, will cause leakage at a weak spot. high revs oil change should be done quick. i never follow what who says when oil should be chnaged, i change oil when i see it dark, means its picked up enough dirt disposits inside engine while keeping engine clean, but it move those disposits inside engine , so lets change it to take out dirt.

    have engine checked for oil leaks , could be gasket area too in case it overheated or someone put more oil than F mark to create over oil pressure.

    if none... then rings could be weak to push oil into exhaust this require some cylinder sleeve work.

    but mech can tell after looking at engine, have a couple of mechs look at it before deciding what to do. - there are additives to thicken oil but that is temporary solution




    3rd day oil change is no biggie for a race engine.

    @levin
    thanx for the detailed reply.thats really helpful.
    well for a mechanic to look at the engine.he will hav to get the engine opened nd then see wats the cause.hmmmm...that means sum serious work.

    nd regarding my car,im thinking to clean the engine throughly by putting in the special liquid which is put into the engine oil case followed by 10mins running of car n then draining the oil.theoratically,it cleans all the sludge in the engine.is it recommended for city idsi engine? talked to the same guy who changes my cars' oil n he said dnt do it,bcuz in idsi engine,,theres a special coating on the pistons n stuff to reduce the friction.this cleaning agent wud harm that coating.is it true?or shud i go for it?
