CRV Engine Oil

the recommended grade is 0W-30 for 5000 Km however it's for cold weather countries so if you like you may switch to 10W-40 (and you may use it for 5000 as Honda recommended) which available as synthetic and sim-synthetic and mineral which would reflect on price and driven distance to change oil, however engine condition may guide you to use sim-synthetic or mineral if you have some oil vaporizing as fully synthetic will not survive in that condition!

The only thing I can agree with you on in this post is that diferent brands of oil should not be mixed.

What is your reason for saying that synthetic oil will "not survive in that condition"? Fully synthetic oil is standard factory fill on many cars in some of the coldest countries on the planet.

Moreover, saying that the OP should change to mineral oil because synthetic oil "vaporises" in some conditions is bad advice, since oil cannot "vaporise". It can only be burned if the engine is worn.

Sorry boys who love adnoc or enoc motor oil, they are cheap substitute to OEM motor oil. Don't fill people cars with non branded and non recommended motor oil. It's misleading and dangerous.

If you support them, then ask them if any one car manufacturer recommended their formula is safe for their cars.....?

That is one of the reason why big brands like castrol, liqui moly, shell, mobil1 etc print on every bottle recommended by Porsche, BMW, VW, Etc, because their blend and formula is certified and recommended by known car manufacturers.

Is there any chance the wrong grade of oil has been used and is messing with the chain tensioner?

Just wanted to add that ADNOC pearl oil (discontinued and replaced by Voyger Silver) was Certified by Mercedes, BMW & VW but certification renewal cost money every year which reflect price...(believe it or not!!)

Just consider engine condition and note that Honda is well known with low compression ratio for longer engine life!!

Which is why fully synthetic oil is the oil to go with. Synthetic oil provides almost twice the lubrication of even the best mineral oil, so  using fully synthetic oil from the get-go is a sure- fire way to reduce engine wear.

Once an engine (Honda or otherwise) is worn no oil can save it, so the reasonable thing to do is to use an oil that reduces engine wear to the minimum- low compression ratio or not.

Needless to say anything more guys, see how multi-purpose motor oil Adnoc is selling as a Voyager Gold that serves petrol and diesel cars. Never seen such oil in my life to fit Petrol and Diesel need in one can.

Most oil can be used in both petrol and diesel engines as long as it's the correct grade, it's just marketing. Take Mobil1 and Mobil1 turbodiesel for example. It's the same stuff in different jars, the spec sheets are exactly the same.

Spec sheets mean nothing in themselves, since they don't list the additive packages added to the base oil. The lubrication requirements of diesel engines are so different from those of petrol engines that no multi-purpose oil can ever be as good for either type of engine as an oil that is designed for a specific application can be.

I will post more on this early next week, so watch this space.

Agree with treks, I have never seen multipurpose engine oil doing any good to any one type of engine: Petrol or Diesel.
