Just need to share plus getting many opinion for the Perodua new hottest model: Axia, a EEV car in the market that the 1st service is using the picture shown 0w-20 engine oil during of their 1st 10k periodical service maintenance.

Is 0w-20 is rather too thin & will create much noise from the engine? Or alternatively, go for the range of maybe 0w-30 or 5w-30 for such Axia 1.0cc?

Please share of your opinion all here...

honestly, since Axia is new in Malaysia and its under warranty..its best just to follow Perodua guide on engine oil rating..and 0w-20 is really very thin actually as its fully not semi but under warranty then no choice

just stick to the perodua service centre only

True however, Perodua also has those gold color semi-synthetic oil of 5w-30 usually used for their other cars range, will that be better than this watery thin 20?

Perodua gold semi 5w-30 is usually for Kenari, Kelisa, Viva 3L and if not wrong the Myvi uses 10w-30 4L..i'm sure they have their reason using 0w-20 for Axia. Anyway since its fully, better use fully than semi..hahaha

Ok ok but on the other hand, the question is isn't 20 is way too thin? Or all 1.0cc 3cylinders engine are design to use 20 also?

newer engines are designed to use lower viscosity oil (such as 0w20) to improve economy and efficiency. Not all 3 cylinders were designed to be the same.

The new engine in the Axia was designed to use 0w20 from the beginning so it isn't way too thin.

If that's the case then there're many 20 choices in the market besides Perodua if the warranty issue is not a concern & soon or later all the 20 prices will be sky rocketing high because of this EEV - see the pictures!

I think its a good engine oil.. while as old perodua engine like kancil cant use semi or fully coz it will leak coz too thin..
but newer engine has no problem with thin engine oil which is good..

Mitsubishi 4B1x engines has been around since 2005-2006 ish, and that was specified to use 0w20 engine oil.
why are you surprised?

if you want further information, feel free to read the first page of the pinned engine oil thread.

I don't see the point of creating a new thread for this...

It should be posted inside the Axia thread in Car Clubs..

Just my opinion smile.gif

Perodua recommends low viscosity oils for their cars so you don't get that "heavy" feeling. As long as you're not keeping the engine at high revs you won't run into any problems.

Can I just let this subject be here for there're constructive comments from good members about this new car using a new oil from the same car manufacturer for the 1st time? I believed many here are amazed by Perodua starts using a new full synthetic oil for their EEV too...

Can I?

Since the car is still under warranty, just stick n follow Perodua's maintenance schedule..

After warranty over, can do whatever u want with it.. change to 17" rims, semi synthetic oil etc..

This oil is not thin for this engine. Its correct based on design. You can imagine the crank rotating inside this oil. If its very thin, then the crank can rotate easily not taking the oil mass with it. If its too thick the crank will be like swimming in jelly and you get waste of energy not to mention the oil crating more mass by sticking on to the crank.

In the case of using thicker oils. It is only true for engine after 3 years or more if you suffer from heavy oil loss. The thicker oil is used to seal the piston wear gaps. The max i could see this engine go for is like 10-30. Anything more needs and overhaul.
