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.
    Hinde mo dapat binayaran

    bakit hindi nalang sa honda kasi? i still do oil changes at my dealership for my 15yo honda same cost. no BS you know you'll be getting idemitsu oil which is probably pretty good oil. 15 years on idemitsu, zero engine problems, it's probably OK oil



    tldr 1 step up higher viscosity is "OK" but not recommended

    Probably because a 30 minute oil change elsewhere takes more than half a day at the casa.

    I was looking for a cheaper and quicker alternative. Like what the poster above said, half a day sa casa. My previous 2006 Civic was casa maintained for years even after warranty, dami ko bad experience. Ever since, naghahanap na ako iba pag after warranty na. Akala ko sa ValuePlus mas mura lang konti pero akala ko okay un pala hindi. Lesson learned. Saka mas prefer ko na nakikita ko habang ginagawa.

    Yep, official figures based on Subaru manuals. The Subaru high torque CVT is rated up to 400Nm. One of the key things to note that the FA20 engine mated to its high torque CVT tranny is limited to around 300hp/400Nm when tuned. Any higher torque and it will wreak the CVT tranny.

    However, thatís more than enough torque when most NA gas cars with displacements 2.0L or less could only do 200Nm or even less. I think the Honda CVT tranny on the Civic RS 1.5T, CRV 1.5T, and Accord 1.5T is only rated up to 260Nm.

    True. Sa Honda dati hindi ko alam kung talaga ba napalitan nila yung oil ko. Ayaw magpasilip eh. Next time better bring your own oil and oil filter.

    Can anybody confirm this also, that the CVT might be affected if you suddenly go high RPM after your first start of the day? How about the ordinary Automatic Transmissions, is this also a no-no? Sorry, sugod na lang kasi ako ng sugod kapag nagdidrive e hehe

    that's BS CVT isn't directly-coupled to the engine. meron pa yan torque converter or cluctch packs

    Well, gee. I guess the manufacturer just put that in the manual for kicks. 🙂

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