Question about 2006 Suzuki Swift

1 Answer

I am about to do an oil change on a Suziki Swift (2006) and was sold 5W-30 full synthetic oil. I have noticed in the manual that it is suitable for temp, -30C to +30C. As I live on the Sunshine Coast QLD and the temp can get higher than that, should I still use it or should I buy 10W-40.

I would go for a 10/40 semi synthetic and change every 10k.

What oil does a kia sportage 2.0l use


  • Hi, i can help.

  • Looks like your vehicle gets the absolute performance out of a 0W30 Full Synthetic Oil. It also says it gets good performance out or 5W30 Full Synthetic oil. So as long as it is a high quality Full Synthetic of 0W30 or 5W30 you will be fine.

  • As for oil types,, Mobile1, Castrol, AMSOIL all make outstanding Full Synthetic Oils.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

WHAT OIL FOR 2005 KIA SORRENTO..PLEASE!


In the Owners manual is stated:
For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil of
a viscosity grade SAE 5W-20 (API SM / ILSAC GF-4). However, if the engine oil is not available in your country, select the the proper engine oil engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart.
What brand of oil to use is up to you. Castrol 5W-20 GTX, Pennzoil, Valvoline, or you can go up to Mobile 1, which is more expensive. If you change oil every 3000miles or 3 months, then you may not use synthetic oil, but it is up to you. My personal opinion is:
It is better to change 5W-20 Castrol GTX every 3 months or 3000miles than fully synthetic Mobil1 5W-20 every 6months or 6000miles.

You can use 5W-20 all year around, but when you Kia Sorento will accumulate miles, and engine start to wear up, thicker 10W-30 is a suitable substitute. If the temperature will be 20F and expected to fall you must not use 10W-30, and will have 5W-20 in your Kia Sorento Oil PAN. The reason is that, when you start the engine the oil is in the Oil Pan, and 10w-30 is very thick in low temperatures. Till the oil warms up the engine wears up extensively.

Oil specifications


The motor oil from the factory is motocraft synthetic blend 5w-30 for normal conditions and motocraft synthetic blend 5w-20 for cold environments. But any synthetic blend or full synthetic of equal weight will do just fine and you will require 5 quarts of oil. DO NOT USE A THICKER WEIGHT OIL, OIL ADDITIVES OR NON SYNTHETIC. Thicker oil like 10w-30, 10w-40, 20w-50 will not be thin enough to lubericate the tighter clearences of the motor and coventional oil breaks down faster than a synthetic blend or synthetic. And be sure to change the oil every 5,000 miles

Oil


Why not? Of course it can! What could happen to (any) engine because of that? A little bit worse (1 to 3%) fuel efficiency since 5W-30 is thicker than 5W-20! But, I'd ask you right now: Why you even consider synthetic blend? If you think that synthetic part (max 30%) in blended oil is going to improve mineral part you voluntarily admit that synthetic is better. USE (FULL) SYNTHETIC and have all the benefits - better mileage, extended drains, cleaner engine, better winter start, smoother operation... Want more? Why to waste natural resources if you can have simpler and better maintenance with synthetics? Do not forget good air and oil filters! They keep engine's longevity! If you want recommendation(s) - use Amsoil (XL oil for 7500 mi) or Mobil (extended). All others are (poorer) copies of them! For the filters - again Amsoil! Absolutely better than K&N! Same air flow and 50 times (!!!!!) better filtration. (If you need more info call 519-739-3765)
