    10w30 is perfectly fine in old vehicles , makes cold starting more easy, specially in winters

    Naa..I disagree...it might be WORKABLE in WINTERS for a 98 Mehran...
    other wise 10w/30 is very thin for an old engine....old engines losing compressions start to blow out black smoke...plus in summers(not even extreme ones) chances r it might leak away nd unable to perform its job to protect the engine...i`ve mentioned 20w/50 considering that winters r almost a bye bye now in a month or so.
    nd these conditions are for an engine thats been driven 80k plus..nd for a 14 years old..its obvious

    bro, in my previous post i gave so many options priority wise and havoline 10w30 is 1 of them, not the only one.
    However as you said its still workable in winters..

    the main thing is that at this stage the poster should not use synthetic oils, as the seals may leak due to strong detergent action, the seals dont leak for a 10w30 mineral oil as its adequately thick enough.
    Also most oil discussions recommend using mineral oils in cars after 75000 miles and not KM.
    However that is a separate discussion

    In every case the recommended OEM grade gives the best guidelines abt grades.

    I ve seen this oil, the packing is of grey colour i think and the packing is like packing of Mobil..

    I didnt use it myself, but someone who was using it said its cost was low was actually quite satisfied..
