Motor Oil Used at Trio Mantap Empty Motor Oil Used at Trio Mantap

Post by ishirolee 2012-01-16, 12:02 pm

Hi All,

I need to clarify some doubt on the Motor Oil used. On 14/01/12, I sent my car for 20K service at Trio Mantap. I notice they used Shell Helix HX7-E (5W-30). As I know later the oil used is not Fully Synthetic. From my previous service Castrol Magnatec A1- 5w30 was used which is Fully Synthetic Oil.

Has anyone been using Shell Helix HX7-E? Any degrade of the engine performance?


Thx.

Mind linking your source stating HX7-E isnt fully syn? AFAIK any motor oil with that grade (5w-XX) is fully syn.

One of the festa fb guy confirmed it. He even complaint to SDAC. I notice the motor oil packing only stated "Synthetic Technology". Shell Motor Oil which is Fully Synthetic comes with the word "Ultra".

If you read your Fiesta Owner's handbook, page 111, you'll notice that SDAC is in fact following Ford's Technical Specifications. The technical specifications say SAE 5W-30 / WSS-M2C913-B type oil with some alternatives.
You mentioned seeing 5W-30 on the type of oil they use. So, there may not be violation...
The specific Shell oil made to Ford's specification should be Helix HX7 AF (semi synthetic oil)

It is pricy, even I sell Mobil 1 5w/50 at RM215 for 4 Litre. What's more, AFAIK most 1.6 engines dont really use all 4 litres, so you'll lose some more there (give and take about 200ml ++)

That's pricy... but I think most so called "authorized SC" of various car makes mark up the engine oil price quite a bit. By the way, isn't Ford SC supposed to provide free engine oil for the Fiesta for 3 years?

Sure, you live in KL/Klang valley? Can COD or postal delivery. This is Mobil-1 "Silver" 5w-50.

@Artoo, our free maintenance is either 3 years OR 60,000km which ever comes first.

haremeow, any reason why you're servicing your car at 4k km? I'm at dilemma whether to service my car b4 10k... However, that's still consider sooner than the Thai Fiesta. I heard Thai's FoFi first service is 15k km/ 9 months...

ArToo, no specific reason. only i was thinking when i received my car. i just don't know how long they have put the engine oil.
in fact i did random check for 1st 1K km. they didnt charge me for that.
