    Default Suggestions for Engine Oil for Mitsubishi 4G13 12 valve Lancer

    As Salam o Alaikum Pak Wheelers

    i have been visiting this website for quite a few years now and was in active but have always found the website/forum to be very useful.

    I have a Mitsubishi Lancer 1988 with its original 4G13 12- Valve engine, the engine was overhauled last year in Ramadan and after giving the engine a 1000km run i changed the Oil and then again did the same after 3000kms. it has almost been 6 months after the oil change and there is no problem with the car at all. but the engine oil now seems to a bit reduced and has turned very dark in colour, so i am deciding to change the oil and the filters and get the car service.

    I require your useful suggestions regarding which oil should i now use for my car, last time i used Castrol.

    you people are quite experienced with the cars and your suggestions will be highly obliged.

    will upload pics of the engine bay ASAP!

    Brother Castrol GTX is best for your car.

    engine oil for daily use vehicle is changed according to odometer reading not by Time line. I'd recommend Shell Helix HX 7 with filter change, oil change at 5000 km & filter change at 10,000 kms.

    its is about 5000kms since the last oil change!

    My mechanic also suggested me to buy Castrol GTX.

    there are many unknown products in the market claiming to be imported rather than Pakistani made such as Falcon, Advance etc etc. one of my friends suggested to try ZIC!

    it is a daily use car but driven with utmost care and not more than 30 to 40kms a day!

    GTX and Magnatec comes straight from UK by M&P. Same guys who import Samsung Galaxy S5.
