    Ang diesel hindi tinataasan ng ECU ang RPM pag cold start. Kahit taasan ang RPM pag tinapakan mo yung pedal at neutral hindi rin masyado tataas temperature kasi walang load.

    Idle lang for maybe 15-20 seconds tapos drive away slowly for the first km or so. Pag mainit na makina after a few minutes pwede na bilisan takbo/taasan RPM.

    Pag start ninyo ng engine then magsuot ng seatbelt turn on A/C pwede na kayo umalis huwag na painit ng makina.

    Hinde kayo mga lumang tao para gawin yan. Baka pati yun pa tapat ng gas bago off engine ginagawa din?

    Kung short drive lang, puwede naman. However, a half minute of idle before turning it off wouldn’t be a big hassle.

    Pero kung galing long drive, give it 2 minutes to let the engine idle before turning off.

    Better be safe than sorry. It will be a head ache if you break your turbocharger.

    Yun nga. Malaking issue sakin un kasi di nila inuupdate customer nila. Walang transparency. Be aware na lang siguro. THis is ValuePlus E. Rod. btw. I should have done my research, I've actually been reading reviews na ibang parts na gamit nila questionable quality. They are not that cheaper than the casa too.

    If you want to be sure of the oil that you intend to use, I suggest you buy them on your own. Monitor the engine response with the thicker oil and if you observe that it is not as it was, you can change the oil.

    I actually asked them if I could bring my own oil to which they vehemently refused kasi daw "policy". This is from ValuePlus E. Rod. Kaya nagka leche leche. I guess I should have been more vigilant and they should ahve been more transparent.

    i am wondering, what type oil has it been using before?
    does casa have the requisite 0W-20 oil?
    is it possible, the car has already been on a more viscous grade of oil even before?
    I've been using 0W-20 the whole duration of the warranty. Honda has their own 0W-20 oil.

    Is the 350Nm figure an official figure? Or more of a general concensus? I'm actually planning to have my car tuned but am hesitant because of possible effects to different parts because of increased torque.

Engine oil concerns. Do I need to change my oil immediately?
