    yo peeps.. what's the best engine oil for 4G93 engine.. currently using mobil super s 10w-40 and i noticed there are some leakage (minor).. im a little worried now.. can't be the gasket as the mileage is below 80k.. is 10w-40 too thin? or because the side effect of recent high temp weather few months ago? next service is due so really appreciate if u guys can help.
    tq

    Yes
    Get the Shell Helix Ultra 5w40 <RM100 for 4L... very good oil, unbeatable for the price.

    No problem, i use 5w40 for 4g93t.
    Problem is shell helix ultra hard to get in penang. Price also rm109 give or take. No rm89/99.
    So get any reputable brand u'll be safe.
