theres a lot of counterfeit engine oil being sold in the market
they immitate the leading brands such as shell. castrol etc
and they make their own oil
i've saw one article in one journalist blog which reveal these "kilang haram" producing fake engine oile
and the best past is they have their own new bottle and new stickers so its very hard to tell which one is the original oil and which one is the counterfeit

here's the link
http://ondscene.blogspot.com/2010/02...ir-minyak.html

so better becareful with that as the fake one might ruin the reputation of the original one by causing damage to the engine

just sharing though

Thanks for the link azameel The reason why i bring up this topic was, I've come across atleast 5 of my friends' car has actually damaged their con rod bearing after using Castrol Magnatec oil (1 evo, 2 subaru, 2 proton) 2 of the vehicles in the list are even belong to workshop workers, which is a Castrol dealer. They got the oil from Castrol Malaysia directly.

the oil grade not suitable izzit

since its form castrol malaysia, it must be genuine

wat i worry is thw wrong oil grade, too thin of oil grade cant withstands high oil temp...especially on turbocharged engine...

what i experienced from using castrol magnatec is the car engine teppet noise and it became more obvious as i kept on using it. used it in 2 service schedules in probly 6months interval. now swapped to original honda engine oil plus revo oil. teppet noise reduced to almost gone now. fiuhhh...

now that u mention tappet noise...i do have some of that...but from what my foreman says, is due to the oil being too thin and he told me to put some oil addons. i think i'll try to use some idemitsu oild next time..a new day...a new thing learnt heheheh
