  1. I changed my engine oil with Mobil super 3000 formula 5W-40.I observed reduction in NVH level after change.
    Thanks gurjinder for your suggestion.

    You can skip any ECU reset. It is, at best , a placebo when it comes to supposedly increasing/restoring engine performance.

    Cheers.

    Yes you can use it. I used it in my 90hp Punto.

    But 370 is too much for that oil filter in open market. I bought it for 145:

    i'm using delvac 1 and i think i've done about 6500 on it already (actual odo reading is not with me right now).
    What would you guys recommend as a good time to change this oil?
    8000kms or 10k ?
    Mind you I'm running on a remapped ECU and do highway driving once every 2-3months.

    Although it is only guesswork, but 10k should be easy on the D1. No worries.

    Highway driving is actually better for the oil and engine. It is city driving which harms the car more.

    My TJet is nearing 3000 kms and I am thinking of getting the engine oil changed - reason: the oil is more than a year old and I read in this thread that oil should be changed in a year

    I might go in before the first service to get it changed. I am thinking of Mobil Selenia - SA has quoted Rs 3800 for the oil and some amount for the air filter

    Any suggestions on what I should take care of/note while TASS is going the oil replacement? Also, is it necessary to change the oil right now or I can wait for first service before replacing it

    When is your initial checkup @5000km/6months due? Also, when is the 15,000km/1 year service due.

    Cheers
