    Default Suggestion regarding oil

    Hey,

    Guys i was using havoline motor oil previously in my ALTO 2008. Not much satisfied with it. Just switched from caltex to Shell HX5 yellow box, I think it's 10W-50 .. How is it???

    I feel very smooth drive with no jerkings in the car even in the morning. I need you input either this oil is good for this Suzuki ALTO or should i use some other brand???


    Thanks in advance for coming and posting into my thread !

    Regards,
    Waqar Khan

    no yellow shell is 15w 40.

    whats your car mileage,were you using synthetic or mineral oil,if you want to use good oils that dont burden your pocket,reputed names are

    Petromin ultra
    castrol GTX magnetic
    zic high flo

    Expensive ones are
    Mobil
    Liquimoli
    Fusch oil

    best synthtic brands include
    Mobil
    liquimoli
    zic

    the main thing while buying is you should not be dodged by counterfeit oils which are so common. You may ve bought mobil, the best brand availible but if its 2 no., then youe engine and pocket will suffer.

    @vicky
    HX5 is 15w-40 i believe.. well if you are satisfied with it than why you want to change it...
    In my opinion, if your engine has a low milage like 40k or lower, get a fully synthetic oil like Caltex havoline formula 5w-30 or ZIC XQ 5w-40; i'm not in favour of ZIC A+ 5w-20... If the milage is higher, you may use Petromin Ultra7... Actually ultra7 is a bit more viscous which means that it is better for engine but would result in a jerky start in morning if the engine is new or newly overhauled...

    Thanks for reply !

    So what you are suggesting to quit using that yellow box shell oil? I had previously caltex motor oil and it need really hard time for engine to come to it's optimal temp. By using shell i am experiencing smooth drive with in fact better fuel consumption.

    I am not sure either to use zic brand coz it's strongly opposed by my 2 mechanics which are in fact very experienced. Not sure why? I asked shopkeeper for mobil 1 but it's around for 2000RS for 3 liter can then i had same thing in my mind is it original or not. That's y i bought shell from shell pump and pour into my engine !
