    Default Best oil for honda civic reborn

    Dear All,
    Please tell me the best oil for my Reborn.
    I am quite inclined towards Castrol Magnetic 5W30 if i find it.
    if not that then I am thinking about ZIC OW.
    Please tell me whether I am on right track or not.

    They are both fine. Why not Shell Helix Ultra 5w-30? It is known worldwide for its excellent engine cleaning properties. Ferrari also recommends Shell Helix Ultra for their cars.

    You are on the right track; a 30 weight API SN is excellent for the Civic.

    Why not Honda Genuine oil 5W-30 by Chevron, (bottle with green sticker)?? It's perfect for Honda

    1) Honda genuine fully synthetic 2400rs one. Drain it after 4000kms.

    2) Shell helix ultra fully synthetic.
    Drain interval 5k max. Not beyond that.
    Keeping dust conditions of our country in mind, I won't recommend to use any shimpunchung, liquymaaaly and other oils which claim longer drain intervals to be used for more than 5k kms in a PKDM civic.

    No. Drain interval of OEM Honda oil is maximum 5k kms with genuine oil filter provided by dealerships.
    I follow and recommend drain interval to be 4k just to be on safe side and change oil filter and air filter at 8k kms.
    My 8th gen civic has clocked 120k kms in a year and I followed the above mentioned drain interval and car still runs perfectly fine.

    5k km is the safe drain interval. It corresponds to the obsolete 3k mile OCI.

    This was the first Civic that came with the maintenance minder (not in Pakistan). People report that it comes on between 6500 km and 15000 km (15% oil life left). The oil still works around 2k km more after the light has come on.

    4k km OCI's are simply a waste of money, and perfectly good oil.

    Note: This does not apply to Pakistani Civics

    Oil change is just one of the things it displays. It displays the type of service that the car needs, whether a simple oil and oil filter change, or a more extensive service.

    You will not find the maintenance schedule in the owner's manual of the Civic, because the maintenance minder determines the schedule for you. This way, you will only need to do the necessary service; no more and no less. The dealers won't be able to rip you off. You can save a lot of money this way.
