Default Advice engine oil for campro engine

Hi all
want to ask for the engine oil of my wife's persona (or any other campro engine car perhaps). is it best with full@semi. as of today, I've only tried to use semi as per suggest by the workshop, but now thinking of using full synthetic for next 20k service. is it ok with it? since some of the service center claimed that proton car with campro engine not suitable for full, may resulted some problem in long term.

thanks.

ic. thanx bos.
hmm BTW, is it really true that full syn oil will bring long term effect to the engine later? or they just saying this to make us 'visit' them more frequent with the 5k oil change..

All type engine oil are good.
It's all depends on your requirement & car specification. Above all is budget.
For new car I second DanzEterna recommendation.

I've been using MOTUL Turbolight 10W-40 for my Waja 1.6 (standard) for almost 7 years.
Service interval depend on usage... but not more then 3 month.
I choose it because the price are in between the Fully - Semi (compare the some other product).

abu_busyra,

They not conned you... maybe they think for your budget.

It depends, I service my ride base on the usage.
Normally around 5-6K km. If the car "xbanyak jalan" then I change around 90 days.

Every morning check your engine oil before start.
Look at the colour & the smell...
If it super dark & smell like burning ash... then need to change la.
If you driving high-rev all the time (5-6K RPM)... the life span will be shorten.
Each engine oil have different characteristic.

This engine oil are Semi Sync... but good for my usage.

abu_busyra,

My Waja just 4G18 SOHC 1.6 using Semi-Synthetic oil (as per quoted above)
My friend, Waja Campro also using MOTUL Fully Synthetic 5W-40 (no problem for almost 2 years).
U may use the Fully Synthetic as well (other brand if you like).

Most type (Fully/Semi) of oil good for the engine (Campro) as long you used for daily drive &
not going to burst until 5K-6K RPM all the time.

new car should not having a problem to used fully syn, besides it's the best also compare semi syn......

u see this:

semi syn rm 90 = 5000km

fully syn rm200 = 10000km ...... plus , smooth driving, easy to start and more additive to protect ur engine

now i used fully syn, before this i used Q8 advanced rm180 and now torqo rm 240.... if i be u i just put Q8 advance enough, car smooth n performance also good.....
