gusto ko ksi i-try ung havoline energy.

granted ung 5w is good for cold starts. eh ung 30? is it to thin to handle tropical climates jas lyk ours? or kaya ng havo energy?

my ride nga pala is an 02 altis.

recomended sa manual namin yung 5w30 eh kaya ask muna ako feedbak sa inyo.

ok lang din ba 2 shift to different viscosity ? i used ksi toyota synthetics 5w40 sa last pms ko.

IMHO, if you start to use synthetic di na advisable mag shift back sa mineral,  tumitigas kasi ang mga oil seal sa synthetic...

normand

sa pinas recommended that you use 15w30 coz of our climate lower values are recommended for cool places

conrad

ok din naman 5w30 sa mga new cars,


kaso nga lanbg naka sysnthetic kana... down grading to a semi sysnthetic.


check this link sa toyota club, nagtanong narin kasi ako niyan.

d ba synthtetic na ung bagong labas na energy. nakalagay dun sa packaging nya eh, tapos api-sL na rin sya.

conrad,
15w30??? d ba ang mga recomended na viscosities eh 5w30, 10w30, 15w40, 20w50?

do we have  to follow the recomended viscosities? bkit ako nilagyan ng casa ng toyota synthetics na 5w40 ang sae rating?

can i use kaya a 10w40 or a 15w50 oil kahit wala sya sa recomended dun sa manual? either castrol synthec or turbo xp choices ko

eto mga oils rcomende for altis:
5w30= energy, citgo
10w30= castol gtx na us made, citgo
15w40= putcha, pang diesel to ha pero pasok ang delo500gold ksi it has an api-sj rating
20w50= eto marami, as in nakakalat

i did not recomend 15w30, kung meron man nun.

i said 5w30 is ok. also you have to be specific kung anong oil yung sina sabi mo, merong fully synthetic, semi systhetic na havoline.

kung fully synthetic naman gagamitin mo, no problem then.

0W-30, 10W-30 or even 5w-30 is okay for Philippine climate as long as the manufacturer recommends it.   This is even the recommendation for Arizona climate where summers are 110-118 F (over 45 deg C).  A lot of foreign and domestic manufacturers have proving grounds in AZ.

On some late-model Fords, the recommendation is even 5W-20.  Some Ford engines are designed with tolerances to run on this low viscosity multi-grade.

The lower value on a 10W-30 is its winter grade.  It is the oil's ability to flow and hold its properties at a specific cold temperature.  It does not affect the "hot weather" grade or weight.  A 0W-30 oil will work just as good as a 10W-30 oil in the Philippines.

Older engines need higher viscosity oil because they were designed with greater tolerances.  Using a 20W-50 on a Ford that requires 5W-20 or any other engine that calls for 5W-30 is just plain dumb.  Cold start wear just increases and so does hp pumping losses.  

Use 20W-50 on your old 70s-80s Lancer with 150,000km or when it's only called for but follow what the manufacturer says on your new engine.

Synthetics are the latest and greatest and Mobil-1 syn is used by on AMGs, Corvettes, Vipers, Aston Martins, the U.S. Evo and the Cadillac XLR.  Use it if you can afford it... However, check your manual cause some engines aren't designed for synthetics.

I think a big part of this has something to do with CAFE to reduce Ford's total emissions from their vehicles. Not exactly good for the engines but a political decision...

Philippines doesnt really need a multigrade oil. how about a synthetic 30w oil if it exists at all??

True... I kinda agree that 5W-20 may be pushing it but Ford recommends it on some.  However, I would never use 20W-50 on a brand-new engine unless the manual specifically calls for it.  It may cause more harm than good.

As for using single-grade.... I dunno... I'll stick with the protection of multi-grade (or even multi-grade syn).  During the Christmas season, cold-start temps in areas like Baguio and the Cordilleras can drop-- especially on many off-roading destination.  Multi-grade is just peace of mind. :)
