Nahh, most engine have a splash guard so oil won't hit the cap when its running
Just make sure to straighten out the dip stick so the reading is still accurate

Hi guys,

Recently I acquired my father's Waja 2004 (Mitsubishi) to be my secondary car.

This Waja mileage is now 301,000 KM and due for engine oil.

Can anyone suggest a suitable engine oil for this car with this kind of mileage?

Thank You smile.gif

If your dad keep using fully synthetic all this while, then just continue. If it does not have any oil eating problem, fully synthetic oil should be ok

Yes, my dad has been using fully synthetic all this while. How about the rating? 5W-40? 10W-40?

If you stay nearby Sg Apong, look for AMT Engineering.
They sell Petro-Canada premium diesel engine oil.
