    Default Very bad choice of oil for Pirius

    A month ago, a gentleman came to us for oil change in his almost new Pirius 2012 Model (he purchased ~2.3 million).
    We recommended him fully synthetic 5/40, but he said its expensive. After half an hour discussion we ended up to pour 5/30 oil for PTT (because he was not willing spend single more penny for engine oil). anyway.

    After 2 weeks he came and said the oil (PTT 5/30) is "just Ok". But not very excellent. And he advised that he will buy the oil by himself and will come here for change. We said OK.

    After 1 month he came to us and asked to drain the oil. We did. Then he opened the trunk and give us new "bottle" of oil and said he has bought it from Hyperstar (or Makro) because his mechanic friend has strongly advised this oil. And when we saw at the bottle, our jaws were dropped to knees. It was Havoline Motor Oil 20/50 of SG grade. We slightly insist him that its not good oil, but he start staring at very strange eyes and started getting mad. So eventually we poured Havoline 20/50 SG grade oil in his almost brand new Pirius.

    Guess what, when he start the car, the "engine check light didn't turned off". It?s a week now and his engine light is not turned off but he (GOD Shower His Blessings on him) still running car. But now he slightly admitted that he will change the oil as per our advise but still next time (after running Havoline for 5K min.). We asked him again to change it immediately and considered it as your loss. But he will run at-least 3K on it. Uff.. what a mentality.

    btw you should have a handy scanner at your oil change shop - in this case I think the car owner was a simpleton, if it were someone else you might have a giant problem - because the car rolled in with no error and now after your work it has an error. If I owned that car you would be fixing it right now.
    sir.jee when.first time the engine light lamp turned on, immediately we bring back the car to the ramp and sent one mechanic down there who fixed it and then an other one who will double check every thing. So it was rest assure that there was no fixing loose end.

    Today we spoke to the gentleman again he said he will come soon at our shop again to change the oil of our choice. And we have planned to pour 5/40 to his car. Oil company will depend upon the money he will be willing to spend.

    The code set was BS420, which is a local non-standard code that is widely used.

    sir, well the price seems good. But change interval is eye opening. Is this interval is for all cars in pak? How about changing the filters?
