    engine oil flash point is around 200c-250c. its even ok to send oil samples by fedex because its not a hazmat.

    imagine if oil combusts while engine is running at operating temps(90-100c)...

    oil is for lubrication at temps. they are designed to withstand heat.

    cause of fire could have been overloaded electrical wires or fuel related... they must have been working on a fuel pump. .

    nice to know. as a benefit I think it is more likely you get an original product from a drum. as far as hearsay there is an increasing number of fake oil repackaged in reused original gallon/liter containers

    Also, is it safe na 10k kms or once a year yung OCI ko using Shell Helix Ultra Diesel (5w40)? Sa province po ako nakatira na walang trapik tulad ng sa Manila.


    Thanks po sa sasagot.
    Good day! 1st post here, been reading forums since I've purchased our vehicle. Would like to ask for your feedback regarding OCI for our vehicle...

    Vehicle: 2013 Hyundai Accent Hatchback CRDi
    Odo: 29k
    Last PMS: 20k
    Previous Oil Used: Total Gold 9000 Diesel 5W30

    Question po is:
    - Is it OK to extend the OCI to say 15TKMs? Budget's currently tight for OC and will probably be able to do OC on December before Christmas.
    - Car's only used on weekends with route of Bulacan-Laguna-Bulacan with several long-distance trips like La Union, Baler, Baguio.
    - Travel time is always early morning (4AM-6AM) and late night-early morning (11PM-4AM) where traffic is light.
    - Can I extend said PMS?
    - Vehicle is maintained in a Nissan dealership (which also services Hyundai vehicles since they own a Hyundai dealership in Manila) and OCI usually consists of Oil Change, Oil Filter change.

    Thank you!

    If I may, cause I own the same car, albeit with a higher mileage. I presume you do a 10k pms sched of pms. Even if you rarely use your car, 10k is 10ks worth of running time. Meaning, it is time for an o/c, filter change. Have you seen how dirty the oil is at 10k? Full of soot. At 10k, you will also have to change/clean the engine air filter, clean the brakes, rotate tires & others. Why not just buy the oil filter from hyundai (P600+-) & Zic oil FS (6 lits at P1,600 +-) from Lazada & just have it serviced outside?

    My old 2011 Fiesta is using Shell Helix in the casa since day 1 and I always notice a slight oil burn smell (sensitive nose) after around 4000 RPM. I thought it is the norm so I don't usually exceed that RPM unless I don't have a choice. Around a year ago, I DIY and bought Amsoil in Lazada with Bosch filter and just did the oil change in Motech since it is just hundreds of meters away from our house. I did not expect much but lo and behold, initially I thought 4000+ RPM without any burning smell is cool. The engine sound is better too, maybe due to its Yamaha roots it's trying to encourage you to rev up more and more so I ended up 5000 max then one day hit 6000 RPM red line (yeah you won't notice it). Still no oil burning smell and no ill effects so far, did not expect me enjoying the old car 7 years after. My FXT is fed with Motul and can't wait to switch to Amsoil after warranty expires. Tried to but it is a long story. Was also not surprised that Amsoil won the Project farm youtube channel oil championship mid this year. Now I wonder how Amsoil will perform in a K24 engine revving 7000 RPM. I bet it will be more fun than my two cars combined lol.

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your first post!

    You have a nice username. This reminds me of a certain guy whose handle is "Old Blue", while yours is "yellow blue".

    Motor oil smell in the cabin? Impossible.

    Apart from the combustion chamber, the engine is pretty much a closed system. The little oil it ejects as a by-product of blow-by is ingested back into the combustion chamber to burn off. If you have an issue with oil consumption, it'll be out your vehicle's tailpipe. There is no way it can enter the cabin. And if you have a problem of exhaust gas coming into the cabin, you'll be smelling exhaust fumes before you smell the burnt oil.

    The odor is likely from adhesives, upholstery or materials around the area where the cabin floor meets the firewall. That's usually where the hot exhaust pipe from the engine or even the cat passes through in close proximity. That area is also close to A/C intake and so it can easily be mistaken to be an issue with the A/C. You see, running at a sustained high RPM makes the exhaust pipe very hot... even glowing red in extreme situations.

    I noticed the same with my then 07 Civic FD. If I do some spirited or aggressive driving (4-6k RPM), I will immediately smell trace odor of something burnt coming out of the A/C vents. Scared me in the beginning. Eventually, as the adhesive or material cures, the odor becomes less and less prominent. By the time I sold the vehicle 7 years later, the odor was gone.
