    Hello guys,
    I have a Punto Emotion Pack 1.3, 2011 model.
    I bought it from my cousin quite a while ago, got the engine block changed, with few extra repairs.
    The first servicing according to the Service center is about 10k km which i am nearing.
    Last time during the repairs, the oil used was Petronas Selenia 5w-40 accordingly.
    The engine was up running and fine, with no issues found for the entire run since past 4 months, but the sound emitting from engine is no more less than a Train.
    I need suggestion about how to improve, and ways to enhance the current engine condition to much more smoother and increase the engine life span.
    Now i need suggestions as i wanted to know whether synthetic or mineral oil would be a good go.
    I also searched for options and found some of these:
    Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40
    Castrol Edge
    Mitasu 5w-40 Synthetic
    Eurol Turbo DI 5w-40

    Should i continue the first oil (Petronas) or go for a change.
    If there are any others please suggest me.
    Thanks in advance.
    regards

    Thank you for your reply,
    The car is used and after the engine block change it is first service at 10k kms.
    I wanted to go to shell helix actually.
    Is it better to change to shell or continue using the Selenia which was used along with engine block change.
    Thanks in advance.
    regards

    Thank you ,
    would check it out too.

    Another question : Does motul and shell helix provide extra time for oil change, i mean selenia is changed every 10k kms, and what mileage count does it require to change shell helix.
    Thanks in advance.
    Also need opinion on the Eurol Oils.
    Regards

    Oh no...be prepared for damages..30k in our climate will certainly damage quite a lot inside your engine

    There are already quite a few threads where we discussed àbout oils..you can go through those threads. Go by the viscosity, api/acea ratings and choose as established brand of oil.

    Just relax and go for selenia and adhere to 1 year or 10000 kms change schedule.... more than enough.
