10W40 Mobil1 is not on the approved list for petrol engines.
the shell helix ultra 5w30 and 5w40 both are approved.
btw which benz has started smoking? (abhi batate hain iss ko, cigrate peenay lagee hai haraamkhor)
yoy finally replied to my thread bhai.Its a w210, black e220 cdi.
As a person who owns both Civic (2013 Vti oriel prosmatic and 8th gen..) and Prius (S 10th Anniversary).. i can safely say go for prius ( Japanese version, Don't know about UK version) eyes closed as it is much better than Civic Reborn :)
it is fun indeed
black smoke can also be caused due to cool operating temperatures... which is happening in your car, right @xulfiqar?
yeah that might be it, but I just noticed yesterday it is leaking oil from the manifold inlet hose pipe.
thank you so much fr you suggestion bro..
manifold inlet hose pipe? can you post a pic for reference
just go for option 1. (prius)very nice, much comfortable, fuel efficient. Nearly maintainess free, etc. Etc. Etc.Having civic and especially merceides will be equivellent to buying elephant as pet.
here is the pic:
the pipe with the red ring is the culprit..
so a tie between civic and prius..If a UK model prius is available and that too a clean car only then it will be considered. thanks a lot for ur input.
Being an old car how do you compare Mercedes w203 to Honda Civic 2010 regarding maintenance, repair and visiting the workshop ?I want to buy a Mercedes or Honda Civic but I'm confused ..... Need your advice from your experience.
