    @salmanrasheedpsh
    RC/EC - as per API (American Petroleum Institute) is stated as "Resource Conserving and Energy Conserving These designations apply to oils intended for gasoline-engine cars, vans, and light trucks.Widespread use of Resource Conserving or Energy Conserving oils may result in an overall savings of fuel in the vehicle fleet as a whole."

    The service category for the oil you got is a modern SN.

    Yes you should opt for fully synthetic and 5w30 is great in winters (and summers too if you dont drive for hours in high noon with AC) If your running is a lot in rush hour traffic at peak temperatures then w40 should be considered.

    smaller number (5) means the viscosity when engine is cold (thin)
    larger number (30/40) means the viscosity when engine is hot (thicker)

    My civic 05 is running on 5w30 since day one (islamabad/pindi) but usage is not very high in extreme temperatures

    There is not a huge difference in viscosity at high temperature for both of the oil, on low temperature both are same i.e. 5w, winter is approaching so you can go safely with 5w30, what is company recommend oil grade for 1kr-fe ? you should get close to what written in car manual.

    @.
    Dr Sb ! 5W40 oil has more ability to work on high ambient temperatures. As you are using 5w30 in winter, so there is nothing to worry about.

    Both are good oils, if you think that your running during the winter would be around 10k then it's OK to go with 5w30 otherwise I would suggest 5w40 it would produce better results in summer

Drive was great, contrary to popular belief not underpowered at all. Went right upto 140 km motorway with esse. Mileage varied between 15-18 depending how I drove.
    All in all, recommended from my side. It is great utility vehicle as even six people can adjust.

He open the battery cover the check the battery and circuit but couldn't find any thing after that he said its seems ur front battery is weak so try to change and check.i just want to ask u have u have experience such problem if yes then what was the solution?waiting for your valuable quick response

    I will try to explain it as simple as possible. The correct way to write 5w30 is 5w-30 or 5w-40. Multi-grades oil falls into 2 viscosity grades (10W-30 has 2 grade 10w and 30, 10w-40 has 2 grade 10w and 40 etc). They are called multi-grade because they were developed to avoid the old routine of using a thinner oil in winter and a thicker oil in summer. Single grade oils are often graded as SAE30, SAE40 etc.

    In a 10w-40 for example the 10w bit (W = winter, not weight or watt or anything else for that matter) simply means that the oil have a certain maximum viscosity/flow at low temperature. The lower the "W" number the better the oil's cold temperature/cold start performance(from drivertechnology.com).

    The 40 in a 10w-40 simply means that the oil fall within certain viscosity limits at 100?C (it is the same temprature which is used to grade SAE oils, so this oil is equivalent to SAE30 oils at 100?C). Once again the lower the number, the thinner the oil: a 30 oil is thinner than a 40 oil at 100?C etc. A cars manual will specify whether a 30, 40 or 50 etc is required.

    All engine oils are made of base oils and additives. Fully synthetic engine oils contain 100% non-conventional, high-performance fluids. Semi-synthetic engine oils (also called "blends") contain a smaller percentage of these high-performance fluids in combination with conventional mineral oil
