Be careful of STP & other American oil.

Make sure the label state 100%/Fully Synthetic.

If the label state 'Synthetic' only, it's actually 'synthetic blend' = semi-syn.

I'm using a lubricant oil which it is a 100% imported lube oil form U.A.E called Sharlu.

If any one interested to know more, I will share more with you.

1) 100% imported product
2) Value of money
3) Eliminate any counterfeit product
4) Total protection capability

U can try 10W-40 or 5W-30/40.

But it's better to stick with what the manufacturer recommends.

Agreed. stick to manufacturer recommendation, cuz those Automotive Engineer design the engine first then only decide what SAE and which API of oil to use in the engine. They don't design the engine based on the oil properties.......... shocking.gif

Again, all the marketing jargon teach us to go for product that self acclaimed "meet manufacturer specification" and "exceed manufacturer requirement".

Do you think Proton, Perodua or some small company car/bike manufacturer do in-depth in liquid-friction engineering to recommend the engine oil for their product?

GReddy Trust F3 10W-40 (Rotary Synthetic for NA Rotary cars) going between RM 250 to RM 280. Depending on shops and importers. I guess Greddy Trust F2 (for turbo cars) is almost the same price. Never asked for it before.

HKS SJCF-4 10W-40 (Rotary Semi for Turbo Rotary cars) going around RM 180 in a workshop in Alam Damai, Cheras.

Nice oil for under RM100. Its 15/50 Really under rated. Running this oil in my old twin carb 1.6 for near 10k km and still the oil still not fully black.

I would worried if my oil not black after 10K km shakehead.gif
IMHO, if other brands become black after 8K km, it's like you using detergent to wash your laundry whereas the water/detergent still clean sad.gif , go figure where the dirt sticks to

My 2-cent theory, there are 2 ways oil become black: 1. the oil disintegrate after intense heat and stress after some time; 2. the oil suspend/carry dirty material in your engine

hi...
am driving a 10yr old satria...recently just changed the engine oil to Amoil semi synthetic 10w40 for 80bucks (simple google shows tat it's a msian company blink.gif )
my dad was like saying old car, dun nid to use semi synthetic or fully synthetic kinda oil
any comment?
do u guys usually buy the oil outside then request the mechanic to help u change?
thx smile.gif

Semi or full syn oil normally more expensive and offer more lubricating protection for engine

But the real reason is coz they are generally more thin (viscosity) for old engine if the engine/ part clearance are loose hence will cause oil burning (eating)/ blow-by.

So, as long as the car is not eating oil you can still use semi or fully synthetic. I am saying it in general, so guys, don't bomb me with 0w/40 compares to 10w/40 or 10w/50 icon_rolleyes.gif

So, it's not nice saying to your car " You are OLD don't waste money on expensive stuffs/ food or go discotheque! "

will be checking the oil level regularly to see how much it's actually leaking...
so do u tink it's still ok for me to use semi syn 10w40?
any recommendation?

If you don't see black/white smoke blowing out your car exhaust I don't see why you cannot use semi-syn or even full-syn

seems like got alot of choice...but i hope petronas hav cheaper engine oil rather than shell...(compare for syntium 3000 and shell helix ultra)


beside that,car engine oil can be use in motorcycles?

Only certain viscosity car engine oil can be used in motor
Another reason is, most motors are running using wet clutch thus some car engine might not be suitable

I have many years experience in engine oils and would like to share my knowledge and experience with all the lowyat.net forumer.
People often forget to read the description of the oil like API and ACEA specification in the labels to determine their suitability.

There are many commercial interest in the promotion of engine oils because oil companies with deep pocket are involved.
Sponsorship of F1 races is million or billion dollar expenses yearly so all the oil companies want to say their oils are good and so forth.
Of course as for all advertisement, there are a lot of myth(untrue claims) than the truth...


F1 formula racing as those that are advertised as champion oils are superior than others, synthetic oils are much better
especially multigrade 0W40, 0W60 are all over the advertising media.
However, Lubricants nowadays are very matured product with many standards. like American Petroleum Institute or API standard.
In the API classification and endorsement, (S for petrol engine, C for Diesel enginer) they have standard like SA, SB, SC,SD to
current SM and Diesel Engine Oil CA, CB, CD to currently CI.
The classifications are for the OEM engine maker who propose the specification for their new engine that needs a certain
properties and the additive maker like lubrizol and ethyl who formulate new additives to meet their new standards.
GF-4 and other european engine oils standards are also present for turbo charged and others special engines or for statutory
requirement like carbon and NOx emmission requirement.

Multigrade Viscosity and Viscosity index are usually in the specification but not in the spec so you need to search for it in google.
Lubrication is about the engine oil films between 2 surfaces. So the thickness(kelikatan) becomes the key point. In trobology
term, piston lubrication is hydrodynamic lubrication where the oil firm separate 2 moving surfaces completely in high speed
movement. But Oils will thin out when heated, just like if you overheat your oil pan when you goreng your pisang, sometimes
your oil pan also catch fire. Oil thin out at high temperature and oil evaporate and at the fire point can cause fire.
To define a suitable engine oil, 2 important characteristic called viscosity index and multigrade properties are describe like
VI-160, 0W40, API-SM. Which essentially means that this oil has a higher VI( normal mineral oil is 95) with a flow properties
of SAE "0" at 0 degree C and SAE 40. In cooler country with winter low temperature, the flowability is a problem so they need
a engine oil that can flow at low temperature but still can maintain sufficient oil film thickness at high temperature.
Higher VI means the viscosity would tend to change less at different temperature.

My Opinion 1
In tropical region like Malaysia, there is no significant differences to use multigrade engine oils in Malaysia even at cool start up
because the engine temperature would not be lower than 20C so the different in viscosity is minimum eventhough your car
manual stated you should use 15W40 oil.

But Castrol Magnetic claims that most piston wear occur during the start up and their oil contain ester which has polarity to stick to
the metal surfaces so at cool start without engine oil it protests.. Some exotic engine oil seller even claims that they drain out all
the engine oil, to go Genting highland and come back, but the engine still would not seize up.

My Opinion 2
I am doubtful about the Castrol Magnetic claims because oil will always stick to the surfaces(always polar),
oil pump is link to the engine so as fast as the engine turn the oil flow to the piston. Of course some car that give 3 to 5 years
guarantee on piston actually has their engine coated with solid lubricants like MoS2. Most exotic additives like FIR something are
too expensive that you may not want to buy just to expect one day your engine oil is gone and you are running with dry engine
with the additive.

Once you car goes into workshop, some enterprising mechanic will recommend you many things, among others are the so called
black oil concentrate. So what are black oil concentrate..The main component of black oil concentrate are X. Viscosity index improver
Y. EP additives Z. Friction modifier. Let goes back to the basic components of a engine oil. A gasoline or Diesel engine oils are
blend(mixture) of 2 or more types of base oils with a viscosity index improver and cocktails of lubrizol or ethyl additives.
Base oils are described as K.Mineral Oils H. Hydrocracked group 2 base oils I. Group 3 PAO and Ester.

My Opinion 3
Normal mineral oils for API-CF or API-SL engines (<RM70/4ltr) are the mainstream products today because we Malaysian uses
more old car. When your car manual recommend you to use this grade oil oil, it is sufficient to do it work. You do not need a
black oil concentrate any more. If you car is more than 10 years oil and has develop some engine problems black oil concentrate
probably cannot help because it is usually a mechanical problem. (P1. diesel engine black smoke are caused by block diesel fuel
nozzle P2. Gasoline engine need top up regularly is usually due to leakages or piston rings) It is silly to buy a RM50 low grade ABC oil
and add black oil concentrate for RM30 per bottle x 2 inside because the total cost would be like a semi-synthetic engione oil..(sorry
to all the black oil concentrate seller...)

SAE 0W20 and 0W60 viscosity grade are for professional use. Because the lighter the oil, the more fuel saving it is. So if you got
a new car and you don't mind a louder engine sound, you can use SAE30 or 0W30 because the thinner oil cause lesser friction than
a thicker SAE40 engine oil saving about 5% more fuel. Kancil type of ligh vehicle uses SAE30 as spec-in. 0W60 are for racing use
because if your engine are under great stress like in racing and when the protection of your piston is your primary objective than the fuel
efficiency then a thicker oil is good for you.

But if a car using a synthetic oil can it extend engine oil drain interval ?. This is a very common question but common sense will tell
you the answer. Let look at a engine oil composition again, it is 85% base oils** 8% viscosity index improver and 7% cocktails of
other additive. Commercial products plays with the 2 seemingly confusing term like "synthetic blends" and "fully synthetic".
The differences between the 2 are "synthetic blend" is actually the semi-synthetic ; usually 15% of PAO or ester or Hydrocracked
base oil with the rest of the component as mineral oils while fully synthetics are esters and PAO or a mixtures between the 2.

A mineral oil type of engine oil are usually blended for it recommended drain interval for 5000KM intervals only for petrol
and diesel passenger car. It is blended using mineral oils which is refined from crude oils and contain heat or chemical unstable
hydrocarbon structure when compared to synthetic man made PAO and ester. These lower priced products also may not have
stable viscosity improver that maintain its viscosity characteristics. If you are driving more continuously like outstation using a
synthetic PAO and esters will be more able to withstand higher engine temperature without accelerated oxidation, breakdown or evaporation.
Every 10C increase in temperature the mineral oils life will become half of its original life.

My Opinion 4
Most of us use 2~3 hours driving a day so normal mineral oils will be sufficient.
When considering oil drain intervals using different type of engine oil products, convenience, fuel efficiency and oil conditions
are the primary consideration. Any oil change between 5,000km to 10,000 km is reasonable, any addition of additive to extend
it further would be unnecessary and pose many risks. Contamination is the greatest risk like fuel dilution and soot or ash formation inside the
engine oil. If you check your engine oil level regularly and your fuel efficiency regularly, it would be a good time to change
the engine oil when your fuel efficiency drop or the engine oil level drop because of evaporation and burn off. Of course you have
to check your tyre pressure to ensure other factor does not effect the 2 factors. (a low pressure tyre will cause 15% drop in fuel
efficiency) In 3 months if you buy RM2000 in petrol or diesel but your engine oil will cost RM100 or below, you will understand that
lubricant is typically 5% of your cost. Buying of semi-synthetic or synthetic blends is confusing because you never know how many
% of sytnthetic PAO/ester is inside although the latest API-SM GF-4 will make obsolete the solvent refined mineral oil because engine
oil blended from it will not pass the test required.

Similarly any additives that cost more than RM100 but claims to only save 5% fuel is also not justificiable. Some technical research
data shows that soluble molybdenum disulphide can actually do that but their cost is usually more expensive.

In conclusion, engine oil use are in accordance to the year of production of your vehicle. My 9 year old diesel car is good using normal
API CF-4 15W40 while the latest 2010 model of most petrol engine car would use API-SM GF-4 for superior oxidation stability and fuel saving.
Any additive addition may not be required in a properly manufactured engine oil product as in accordance to the API and European standards
as their effect cannot be fully understandable or redundant and add to cost. For example the API-SM GF-4 has many tests that set maximum
% evaopration in engine testing rigs and lower friction test compared to previous API-SL. More oil changes to avoid contamination than
expensive engine oil in many confusing term is advisable. Proton and Japanese car manufacturers do not recommend extended oil drain (> 5,000km )
although 10,000km oil change is normal in American and European car for the simple reason of more service more income.

* RX-7 /8 is a rotary engine and the engine oils used are different from piston engine and they are not interchangeable.
** Mineral Base oils is about RM2.4/litre while POA is about RM30/litre

Any comment welcome.

Actually u could retighten the head cover gaskets a little more to solve the leaking problem. The gaskets have failed a little here. But if u have white smoke from worn pistons, then u should use heavier oils like 20/50. Last time i have white smoke problem and i used 20/50 and the smoke lessen to none at all. But then one day i saw some really cheap Idemitsu 10/30 and used them. No need to say the smoke came back and worse. By the time i changed back to 20/50 the piston cracked already from overheat. Surprisingly not the engine overheat, but piston. The oil cannot protect from firction because its too thin. End up spend RM1400 to overhaul. Erk!! rclxub.gif

QUOTE(fred131 @ Nov 26 2010, 03:42 AM)
I have  many years experience  in engine oils and would like to share my knowledge and experience with all the lowyat.net forumer.
People often forget to read the description of the oil like API and ACEA specification in the labels to determine their suitability.

There are many commercial interest in the promotion of engine oils because oil companies with deep pocket are involved.
Sponsorship of F1 races is million or billion dollar expenses yearly so all the oil companies want to say their oils are good and so forth.
Of course as for all advertisement, there are a lot of myth(untrue claims) than  the truth...
F1 formula racing as those that are advertised as champion oils are superior than others, synthetic oils are much better
especially multigrade  0W40, 0W60 are all over the advertising media.
However, Lubricants nowadays are very matured product with many standards. like American Petroleum Institute  or API standard.
In the API classification and endorsement, (S for petrol engine, C for Diesel enginer) they have standard like SA, SB, SC,SD to
current SM and Diesel Engine Oil CA, CB, CD to currently CI.
The classifications are for the OEM engine maker who propose the specification for their new engine that needs a certain
properties and the additive maker like lubrizol and ethyl who formulate new additives to meet their new standards.
GF-4 and other european engine oils standards are also present for turbo charged and others special engines or for statutory
requirement like carbon and NOx emmission requirement.

Multigrade Viscosity and Viscosity index are usually in the specification but not in the spec so you need to search for it in google.
Lubrication is about the engine oil films between 2 surfaces. So the thickness(kelikatan) becomes the key point. In trobology
term, piston lubrication is hydrodynamic lubrication where the oil firm separate 2 moving surfaces completely in high speed
movement. But Oils will thin out when heated, just like if you overheat your oil pan when you goreng your pisang, sometimes
your oil pan also catch fire. Oil thin out at high temperature and oil evaporate and at the fire point can cause fire.
To define a suitable engine oil, 2 important characteristic called viscosity index and multigrade properties are describe like
VI-160, 0W40, API-SM. Which essentially means that this oil has a higher VI( normal mineral oil is 95) with a flow properties
of SAE "0" at 0 degree C and SAE 40. In cooler country with winter low temperature, the flowability is a problem so they need
a engine oil that can flow at low temperature but still can maintain sufficient oil film thickness at high temperature.
Higher VI means the viscosity would tend to change less at different temperature.

My Opinion 1
In tropical region like Malaysia, there is no significant differences to use multigrade engine oils in Malaysia even at cool start up
because the engine temperature would not be lower than 20C so the different in viscosity is minimum eventhough your car
manual stated you should use 15W40 oil.

But Castrol Magnetic claims that most piston wear occur during the start up and their oil contain ester which has polarity to stick to
the metal surfaces so at cool start without engine oil it protests.. Some exotic engine oil seller even claims that they drain out all
the engine oil, to go Genting highland and come back, but the engine still would not seize up.

My Opinion 2
I am doubtful about the Castrol Magnetic claims because oil will always stick to the surfaces(always polar),
oil pump is link to the engine so as fast as the engine turn the oil flow to the piston. Of course some car that give 3 to 5 years
guarantee on piston actually has their engine coated with solid lubricants like MoS2. Most exotic additives like FIR something are
too expensive that you may not want to buy just to expect one day your engine oil is gone and you are running with dry engine
with  the additive.

Once you car goes into workshop, some enterprising mechanic will recommend you many things, among others are the so called
black oil concentrate. So what are black oil concentrate..The main component of black oil concentrate are X. Viscosity index improver
Y. EP additives Z. Friction modifier. Let goes back to the basic components of a engine oil. A gasoline or Diesel engine oils are
blend(mixture) of 2 or more types of base oils with a viscosity index improver and cocktails of lubrizol or ethyl additives.
Base oils are described as K.Mineral Oils H. Hydrocracked group 2 base oils I. Group 3 PAO and Ester.

My Opinion 3
Normal mineral oils for API-CF or API-SL engines (<RM70/4ltr) are the mainstream products today because we Malaysian uses
more old car. When your car manual recommend you to use this grade oil oil, it is sufficient to do it work. You do not need a
black oil concentrate any more. If you car is more than 10 years oil and has develop some engine problems black oil concentrate
probably cannot help because it is usually a mechanical problem. (P1. diesel engine black smoke are caused by block diesel fuel
nozzle P2. Gasoline engine need top up regularly is usually due to leakages or piston rings) It is silly to buy a RM50 low grade ABC oil
and add black oil concentrate for RM30 per bottle x 2 inside because the total cost would be like a semi-synthetic engione oil..(sorry
to all the black oil concentrate seller...)

SAE 0W20 and 0W60 viscosity grade are for professional use. Because the lighter the oil, the more fuel saving it is. So if you got
a new car and you don't mind a louder engine sound, you can use SAE30 or 0W30 because the thinner oil cause lesser friction than
a thicker SAE40 engine oil saving about 5% more fuel. Kancil type of ligh vehicle uses SAE30 as spec-in. 0W60 are for racing use
because if your  engine are under great stress like in racing and when the protection of your piston is your primary objective than the fuel
efficiency then a thicker oil is good for you.
 
But if a car using a synthetic oil can it extend engine oil drain interval ?. This is a very common question but common sense will tell
you the answer. Let look at a engine oil composition again, it is 85% base oils** 8% viscosity index improver and 7% cocktails of
other additive. Commercial products plays with the 2 seemingly confusing term like "synthetic blends" and "fully synthetic".
The differences between the 2 are "synthetic blend" is actually the semi-synthetic ; usually 15% of PAO or ester or Hydrocracked
base oil with the rest of the component as mineral oils while fully synthetics are esters and PAO or a mixtures between the 2.

A mineral oil type of engine oil are usually blended for it recommended drain interval for 5000KM intervals only for petrol
and diesel passenger car. It is blended using mineral oils which is refined from crude oils and contain heat or chemical unstable
hydrocarbon structure when compared to synthetic man made PAO and ester. These lower priced products also may not have
stable viscosity improver that maintain its viscosity characteristics. If you are driving more continuously like outstation using a
synthetic PAO and esters will be more able to withstand higher engine temperature without accelerated oxidation, breakdown or evaporation.
Every 10C increase in temperature the mineral oils life will become half of its original life.

My Opinion 4
Most of us use 2~3 hours driving a day so normal mineral oils will be sufficient.
When considering oil drain intervals using different type of engine oil products, convenience, fuel efficiency and oil conditions
are the primary consideration. Any oil change between 5,000km to 10,000 km is reasonable, any addition of additive to extend
it further would be unnecessary and pose many risks. Contamination is the greatest risk like fuel dilution and soot or ash formation inside the
engine oil. If you check your engine oil level regularly and your fuel efficiency regularly, it would be a good time to change
the engine oil when your fuel efficiency drop or the engine oil level drop because of evaporation and burn off. Of course you have
to check your tyre pressure to ensure other factor does not effect the 2 factors. (a low pressure tyre will cause 15% drop in fuel
efficiency) In 3 months if you buy RM2000 in petrol or diesel but your engine oil will cost RM100 or below, you will understand that
lubricant is typically 5% of your cost. Buying of semi-synthetic or synthetic blends is confusing because you never know how many
% of sytnthetic PAO/ester is inside although the latest API-SM GF-4 will make obsolete the solvent refined mineral oil because engine
oil blended from it will not pass the test required.

Similarly any additives that cost more than RM100 but claims to only save 5% fuel is also not justificiable. Some technical research
data shows that soluble molybdenum disulphide can actually do that but their cost is usually more expensive.

In conclusion, engine oil use are in accordance to the year of production of your vehicle. My 9 year old diesel car is good using normal
API CF-4 15W40 while the latest 2010 model of most petrol engine car would use API-SM GF-4 for superior oxidation stability and fuel saving.
Any additive addition may not be required in a properly manufactured engine oil product as in accordance to the API and European standards
as their effect cannot be fully understandable or redundant and add to cost. For example the API-SM GF-4 has many tests that set maximum
% evaopration in engine testing rigs and lower friction test compared to previous API-SL. More oil changes to avoid contamination than
expensive engine oil in many confusing term is advisable. Proton and Japanese car manufacturers do not recommend extended oil drain (> 5,000km )
although 10,000km oil change is normal in American and European car for the simple reason of more service more income.

* RX-7 /8 is a rotary engine and the engine oils used are different from piston engine and they are not interchangeable.
** Mineral Base oils is about RM2.4/litre while POA is about RM30/litre

Any comment welcome.

Great stuff!

Hi all,

Usually I buy Mobil Super S Plus 10W-40 at RM100 at Carrefour or AEON Big but they're gone for quite some time already so I have to look for something else for the prices.

They have Castrol 10W-40 for RM99.
But I've seen quite often on this forum where they say that Castrol has a lot of fake oil. Carrefour (AEON Big) wouldn't sell fake oil right?

Naturally I would prefer Shell. They have 10W-40 for RM120. Quite a big difference.

I would prefer Shell. But at RM120.Hmmm

Then I went to Tesco and they have an offer for Shell fully 5W-40 for
RM139.

Is it worth it for me to top up RM20-40 for fully?
I am driving a 2006 Waja Campro btw.

Thanks
