    Default Gear oil for civic vti manual 2005

    Dear Pakwheelers,

    I am planning to get my civic's transmission oil changed. The onwer's manual says to purchase the oil from honda only known as mtf. This oil costs around 1210 per litre. And I believe that my car is going to need 2 litres. On the other hand, the owner's manual also states that a premium motor oil sae 10w30 or 10w40 can also be used as a substitute. What do experts recommend here????

    Go for Caltex Delo Gold, as @Xulfiqar recommends.

    its same for both. Either honda mtf or any premium motor oil of sae 10w40 or 10w30. I am not sure about the quantity. Honda reps say that it needs 2 litres, which I doubt

    ZIC FF is absolutely not right for Honda manual trans.

    Honda recommends 10w30 or 10w40 motor oil for manual trans, it's there in manual books. So it's either Honda MTF or motor oil, nothing else.

    i was going to purchase caltex havoline formula 10w30 api sm or shell helix hx5 10w40 api sn for pouring as manual transmission oil in my 2005 civic vti, until i came across some threads where @Xulfiqar bhai had recommended using caltex delo 15w40. So I did not pour the motor oil yet. could I use an api sm or sn oil as mtf or just stick to api sj rated oil i.e. zic m or caltex delo???

    gear oil changed today. I tried to test the knowledge of spare parts wala. I asked him about the oil to be poured in my manual civic vti's transmission, and his reply was " yaar yeh manual vti hai, iss me zic ff ya shell spiralex best rhengay, yeh top class k gear oils hain" I was shocked and told him that my owners manual says to use either honda mtf or any motor oil with 10w40 or 10w30 viscosity and he again replied "Beta honda mtf zic ff hi hota hai, aankh band kar k daal lo" I was thanking Allah and praising all the PW members else I would have followed his recommendation and screwed my transmission. So I had poured in zic m api sj 15w40 and my gear shifting seems very soft and smooth.

    ZIC M is not a very good choice I'm afraid. You should've gone API-SL spec synthetic or diesel spec for better results.
    Diesel spec oils are favored for their better cleaning and lubrication properties under sheer stress environment. They have higher total base number, better foaming protection and stronger wear protection.

    Anyway, IMO, drain it at 20-25k kms and pour Delo Gold or ZIC 5000 then.

    Those older grades are suggested for their higher Zinc additives compared to SL or higher grades. Zinc compounds protect and lubricate under extreme pressure condition. But they tend to damage cat cons, hence their usage and popularity has declined throughout newer grades.

    Diesel oils still have lots of zinc additives, lot more than any old SG, SJ. They also have tend to withstand higher demanding conditions without changing their chemistry or breaking down, have better foaming control, have better oxidation control, better cleaning properties... and though not related to transmission: very very high reserve alkalinity.

    And last but not least: they are some times even cheaper than inferior petrol grade oils. WIN WIN.
