    Default engine condition of honda civic prosmetic

    Salam. I recently changed the engine oil in my civic and got cng installed. I checked my engine condition if the engine is giving any kindov blow. I took out the Lubricant Oil gauge and found very tiny drops of Oil coming out. I checked with the mechanic and he told me its because of Zic a+ which is very thin oil. Rest the engine is perfect. 2ndly i feel a lil jerk in the second gear. I have driven the car for 45k now. Is it because i need to change the transmission oil? kindly help.

    Try to use only Honda's engine oil.
    You guys are lucky that you have company's own engine oil.
    Its best for your car.
    Every time someone refers to Honda Civic as 'reborn', a puppy dies! Oh and I hate increasing my post count.

    I think ur transmission oil change is due.......... the honda city manual says that the trans oil (CVT) needs to be changed at 40ks, u better consult ur car manual for the oil change mileage............
