Vehicle I am using is Santro Club, Purchased Apr-2009, Manufactured 2009.
Traveled 23000 km (almost more than 80% of total millage on highways).
Only single handed used by my self. just a couple of times any one from home could even take for a ride.
currently it's ZIC A+ in the Vehicle since the first time I purchased the car. I am changing oil every 2500 km. only with ZIC A+
Suddenly it started decreasing oil in my Car since the end of last month. I noticed that it's probably because of the weather change. it's hot now a days. I hope there is no mechanical fault in the car. I also felt that it is taking load while driving since this oil decreased. however there is no visible (white or black) smoke from back and as well the color of oil gets also not bad only a little dark when changing.
Upon reading stuff online I found that it's the grade what we prefer while using oil. So I just checked the pack what I used last time in the car.
it's SAE 5W-20. and I believe I have been using the same grade since the first use because I always got its oil change on Sajjad Motors, from where I purchased the car.
Sajjad Motors, Jail road; they just recommended to use the ENOC that it will not be disturbed because of the the hot weather. I actually never switched from ZIC A+, but the fact about decreasing oil because of hot weather is also known.
On the same time, Sajjad Motors, has actually started some kind of partnership with Petrotec International, Pakistan (Distributors of ENOC Lubricants) and they are just recommending this oil to every one, no matter there is a need or not. but they are just promoting the oil for sure. So I was not willing to accept their claim for ENOC Synthetic Motor Oil being the best for my car.
I, however, didn't even see the products on ENOC's website which two Sajjad Motors is selling for the Diesel and Petrol Vehicles. Just curious about it what is this all.
So the Questions are..
1-Is it possible of being a mechanical fault?
I told you that it's all sudden, in the end of last month, when I also started using AC. I hope that it's only the hot weather issue. however every thing is is just fine, no heat problem. Only I started feeling that it is taking load while driving and on the same time it started decreasing oil.
2-Is the oil ZIC A+ (5W-20) good for current weather?
If not. then what Oil and what Grade should be better to use all-season because I don't want switching every season.
3-What about the ENOC Synthetic Motor Oil? is there any experiences with this oil?
Or any other things I need to get about?
Last but not the least... I don't want to switch from ZIC A+.
Thank you very much
