I got my ride taste Synthetic oil @ 38K mark and i can feel the difference. Got Mobil 1 5W50 and thanks to PatchyBoy for directing me to the right dealer near JC road and got a good price of Rs 723/litre. Also thanks to Viper, Akshay 1234 and Riju for answering my queries.
My Baleno has done 37K. Planning to switch to synthetic. I have been using Motul Mineral till now. Please recommend. I have a few queries like always
1> Flushing is needed I guess? Any risks of leak at this stage
2> What grade to use? 15W40 is what Maruti says. But do we have any synthetic with that grade?
3> Mobi1 is 5W50. Can I safely put that in?
4> How about Motul Synthetic? Heard its good. Any reviews.
5> Do I need to go for injector cleaning?
What are the current approx price of
Any other option
FYI my Baleno has a FFE and a head job. Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated
Hey VJ, am getting the car serviced this friday and want to move to Synthetic oil. Could you please provide me directions to the dealer u got it from ?
Its near JC Road and the dealer shop is "SPEEDAWAY" and here is the number 41496502 . You need to go into the lane that connects the JC Road and Urvashi Theater road (1st right @ signal stop after crossing Kamat Hotel and a petrol pump). Once you enter the road after going for about 200 meters you need to get into a small lane (forgot which bylane it was) .
I suggest you better call them up as i am not that familiar with that area and they can guide you better.
guys i am having a second hand santro which i purchased 6 months ago. it had done 64k n odo (now its 65.5k) and had and still having good condition. i am planning for a oil change. But i dont know which type of oil had been used in previous oil change (i meant synthetic or mineral oil )!
my usage is around 3.5k-4k/ year. and all my trips are short i.e. less than 20km. i m living n kerala,so no extreme temperature changes here!!
i wanna no,
which type of oil suits?
i am skeptical abut engine flushing, is it a must for changing from mineral oil to synthetic oil ?
is castrol magnatec a good buy for my conditions?
also can any1 recommend which transaxle fluid to buy?
