    Default Engine Oil for Nissan Tiida Latio 1.5, 2007 MY SC11

    Hi, I currently own a Nissan Tiida Latio 1.5, 2007 MY SC11. The engine code is HR15DE. I am able to find about HR16DE though and the oil suitable for it is with the viscosity of 0W-30. I did a little bit research and was also able to find a link which does help understand that oil with the viscosity 0W-30 is best suitable for New Nissans. Here's the link

    Hi Tech Lubricants Ltd

    My car is a refurbished one. Just bought an year ago and i don't drive too much.

    At the very first engine tuning i had poured in Nissan's Own Engine Oil which gave me exceptional performance. At the second tuning the mechanic poured in Zic A+ after which i am not satisfied with the performance at all.

    I was not aware about all that viscosity and synthetic, semi-synthetic or mineral oil stuff before therefore i didn't bother checking the viscosity of the Nissan Engine Oil at the first tuning and never checked if it was fully synthetic or semi synthetic or mineral oil. I am trying to find which oil is suitable for a Nissan Tiida Latio with Engine Code HR15DE. Please provide me sufficient info about the viscosity level of oil i should be using and the kind of oil i should be using onwards for my car. Any help or suggestions would be highly appreciated.

    No bro, engine age say aur driving condition say farak parhta hai. Har oil ki viscosity different hoti hai 😜

    Buddy, Heat Gauge + Engine Heat when you open up the bonnet. Plus, You also observe your self the difference between before and after using a new Engine Oil. This is exactly the same difference which can be felt when using Regular Petrol vs High Octance. You notice difference is acceleration and smoother driving experience. Merely, The experience in driving if can be felt by changing just the petrol then change in Oil definitely has its own experience.

    Plus, On the suggestion of a friend, Who also posted here the number of the Dealer in Islamabad i did call him, And he said that its wise to use from 5W -40 or 10W-40 or 20W 40 in winters and 15W-50 or 20W-50 in summers.

    Exactly the question that I was gonna ask.

    @
    daniyal.jatoi

    20W-40 in winters? That's plain stupid.

    Please check the following:

    1. Do you define heat up as Temp gauge crossing the middle point or rising slightly from the C point? (Stupid question, but many do believe anything above C is heat up).

    2. Do you have thermostat valve installed? Fan is direct or auto?

    3. What's the definition of "Awazaar engine", running at higher RPM? or little vibrations?

    1. Buddy, I don't have a C type heat gauge. The car shows a heat sign.
    2. Yes, The car is new and like i said, Facing this issue on Zic only. Fan is Auto.
    3. Awazaar means, Lesser pickup and feeling of heaviness. Yes, You can call it running at higher RPM.

    This statement does not in any way means that the results are massively noticeable. Like i stated in my earlier post that you can feel the slight difference when you shift from Regular to High Octance. Similarly, You can feel the difference in performance when you shift from one oil to another.

    My question basically has been that what is the genuine recommended viscosity level for my Car. Different people offer different suggestions. Like the ones i have mentioned above that i called this guy and he told me these two viscosities, Whereas the mechanic whom tuned my car poured in ZicA+ which is 5W-20. I know for a fact that 5W-20 is not feasible for the kind of atmosphere here. It should have been somewhere like 10W-30 or above, But i am only asking for suggestions based on personal experiences of you friends because Google isn't able to provide me answers to my question in any ways.

    If it's showing a heat sign, you should get your radiator checked bro, it could be clogged. Other than that, since you are in multan, 10w40 or 10w50 is the best for you

    Bhai, I had it checked at the time of tuning and did get checked again 2 weeks ago. No issue with that. Like i said, Its only with this Oil. Perhaps the viscosity is less than the recommended one. And it shows heat sign only when i am on long routes. Anyhow, Do i still choose 10W-40 for winter and 10W-50 for summer?

    you could just use 10w50 throughout the year

    5W-20 is recommended for all newer cars. I have been using it in My Nissan with swapped engine for last 2 years, and no problems at all, even in hottest months of June-July on long routes.

    I was getting fuel economy of 12 kpl on long before installing thermostat and switching to 5W-20 from 10W-40. Now getting 16kpl.

    Don't know whether t-stat made this much difference or oil had some impact.

    But as per my study, all vehicle manufacturers are shifting to full synthetic 5W-20 or max 5W-30.

    as mentioned in this thread before. These things vary from place to place, the digit before w represents the possible low temperature of the area where the vehicle is driven and the one after w is the highest possible temperature. so 5w20 is definetly not suitable in Pakistan, 5w30 might work in the northern reign

    I agree about 5W-20 being not suitable in Pakistan. Our main concern is not the digit with the W. Our concern in the second one which is supposed to be 30 or 40 or 50. I am confused on that one. Using 5W-20 already in my Nissan and not satisfied at all.

    Bhai, There are two concepts running around naked. One is the higher viscosity 50 is for older engines whereas lower viscosities like 40 or 30 for newer engines. The second one is sardioun main 40 ya 30 aur garmioun main 40 ya 50. First, Tell me which one to follow. I can start a thread for this if wanted.
