    Default Engine Oil Level down in Altis 2005

    AOA dear
    i need your technical input that i recently got Altis 2005 with Milage about 110,000km. Previously they were using Guard oil that come 2 know through their sticker pasted for next oil change.
    I had very good experience of ZIC XQ or OW in previous Cultus that i drived about 255,000 km.
    So i switched it to initially on ZIC A+. but it dropped its level about 1.5 L after 5000 km. same it happened with next iol change. Now i switched it to ZIC A. Still getting its level down.
    As per Mechanic there,s no any blow in silencer same in filler cap.
    He said just change it to ZIC HIFLO.
    Bcz synthetic oil has washed its carbon so Hiflo will amke carbon and ur problem would be solved.
    But i am not convinced plz guide what to do?

    There is alot of fake oil in market make sure you are using original oil. Secondly if your car idles alot it that can be the reason too.

    As i have heard Altis takes around 4.25 liters engine oil make sure you are putting correct amount in the first place.

    He said just change it to ZIC HIFLO.
    Bcz synthetic oil has washed its carbon so Hiflo will amke carbon and ur problem would be solved.
    and this is not at all solution of your problem the above statement makes No sense to me.
    RIP

    yes boss same scenario goes with me in my Vitz actually when i bought it firstly i put Zic A then 2nd time i used Zic XQ .. so this happens to me i changed Zic XQ at 1500km and now used Havoline Formula after 50000km every mechanic suggest to used thick oil rather than synthetic one its my advice not to use Zic.
