    Default Best engine oil for suzuki mehran?

    What is the best engine oil for suzuki mehran? Currently i am using ZIC A 10W-40 and i change it on 3000km. Previously i was using Caltex 20W-50 not satisfied with its performance so shifted to ZIC. Economy is good but noises from engine come.

    You are changing oil too early. If you are using original ZIC A, then you should use it for at least 5000km. I had good experience with Caltex's Havoline 20w50. Shell 10w40 is also good if you can find original one.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    Brother,
    Just choose the oil 20/50 till you will have this car.
    However, as you said Havoline 20/50 was not good. I totally agree.

    You can choose
    ZIC Hi-Flow 20/50
    Performa 20/50 => this is very good oil
    SIL Motor Oil 20/50 => this is company from UAE. Not widely available, but its also very good oil.
    Liqui Moly 20/50 (Check the exact name of their 20/50 oil for gasoline).
    Leepon's 20/50

    All the 20/50 oils need to be change after every 3 ~ 3.2K
    But you should choose different companies oil every time and then decide by yourself that which company's oil gave you good mileage & keep engine cool.


    Never use local companies like Castrol, Shell, Toyota, Guards, etc.
    Trust imported companies like Performa, ZIC, Liqui Moly, SIL.

    But do not change the viscosity and keep it 20/50.

    All the best

    It's really hard for the customer to check whether the oil is fake or original. You have to find credible oil shop with good repute. or you can check the company operated pumps in your city.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    I change oil from ZIC Service Centre, they say to change oil at 5k but i change it at 3-3.5k. I think slowly engine will get used to it so it will improve.

    Brother,
    Yes its true that company has recommended 10/40 oil. But dear, you cannot use this oil for all the life of engine.
    Similarly, company recommends thinner oils (0/30, 5/20, 5/30, 10/30 etc.) for new cars like GLI, XLI, CIVIC, CITY, etc. But nobody use these recommended oils for rest of engine's life. The oils slightly move to thicker & thinker with the life of Engine.

    brother,
    directly call to zic company and ask them the list and contact details of their main distributors in the city where you are living. Call to distributor and asjed them the shop in your area or near so where they are supplying oils. Go to that shop and have the job done.
    Moreover you can ask shop owner to add more details for your satisfaction.

    Cheers n happy eid.

    What oil should be used for a 1999 Mehran? Runs almost equally on CNG and petrol both. Engine is in good condition and is water dropping. Need to know what viscosity of oil should be used. I used PSO's Clariant but wish to know what oil would give me a better performance.

    technically there are very few oils for mehran becuase these engines are based on the old technology.
    10/40
    15/40
    20/50
    thats all.

    10/40 viscosity is for new mehrans only. And once they are driven 30~40k, its better to switch to 20/50 for rest for engines life.

    Now your mehran is 1999 model, so technically it should be API SG/SL grade min. But i will suggest to try
    LEEPON'S ENGINE OIL SIM4 20/50.
    Or
    LEEPON'S ENFINE OIL SIM3 20/50.
    Or
    PTT PERFORMA 20/50.

    these oils will suit it perfectly.

    guards oils are perhaps THE MOST WORST oils even for the older cars. So i never suggest to use guards any oil.

    Feed it with 10/40 visos oil but from good companies like PTT Performa, Leepon, kixx, etc.
    Never go even for zic hiflow.
    However can use zic A (10/40).
    And once you drive 40~50k, then shift to 20/50. But again from good companies only.
