    The dealer syempre uses plain over the counter oil for periodic oil changes.

    The manufacturer uses the special oil (yung initial oil na nakalagay sa machine).

    Medyo nga, kaya siguro wala akong mahanap na ganyan.

    Yung ginagamit ko na lang is 5W30 na Caltex energy saving oil, helps a bit sa fuel economy ko specially now that gas prices are over the top.

    you are right. i talked with Van Anesato of Ford Philippines (cavite plant) and he said that they use s special blend oil which thet have shell make which removes the deposits during the break-in period. He advises to change oil on the 5000km checkup instead of the 1000km as he said that 1000kms still isnt enough to remove all the quirks. FYI.

    If you want to talk to him, their tel# is 049-5415000

    medyo malabo ata yan ah...

    any deposits, grime or what not should be trapped in the oil filter, the oil should be clean regardless of mileage if the filter is doing its job.

    sa manual parin ako maniniwala..

    karamihan sa mga dealers kasi harang na sumingil, walang malasakit mga service staff sa kanilang clients..

    malaking investment din magkaroon ng sasakyan..kaya dapat lang ingatan sa maintenance.
