    Default Engine oil for break in period of cars

    Aoa I am planning to rebuild 1krfe of my 2nd gen vitz , I read somewhere that for break in period I should pour mineral oil such as 10-40 , is that correct
    Normally I use 5-40 fully synthetic shell imported oil in the same engine

    Is this grade fit for 1krfe or shall I switch to 5-30 ?
    @Xulfiqar , if u could please help me for choosing engine oil for break in period

    Ok for rebuild you need few of the things.
    If you are lucky enough to find liqui moli shop in peshawar. Than buy following products.

    1: 10W-40 MOS2.
    2: Ceratec 1can
    3: Motor Protect 1can.
    4: Motor Oil saver 1can.

    Pour the engine oil and add all 3 cans in it remember level up the engine oil 3.6 liters and add these treatments ober into the oil.

    Oil filter check after first 2000 kms.
    Inspect the oil filter after 2k s and replace it. Than you are good to go for 5 k more.
    Remember to break in the engine in cvt transmission you had to struggle more than a normal transmission vehicle.

    Will describe the procedure after wards. Good luck

    shell helix ultra 5w-40 would do the job quite appropriately. you can keep using it.

    or you can also shift to toyota taglon 5w-50.
