  2. Which grade engine oil for M800 1991 Type-I model?

    Thanks Anjan, Anyway, I replaced mineral oil with Castrol Magnatec 10w40 which costed 1000/- for 3L and also changed Oil filter(MGP). Now engine sound reduced and feeling more pickup. But engine is heating up more with castrol. When I did run engine idle for 20 mins the radiator fan is switching on more frequently as it was before oil change. Is normal? or should I change to Magnatec 20w50? plz help.
  3. Best mineral engine oil for Maruti?

    Is it safe using synthetic oil in Maruti 800 1991 model clocked 90KKm. I think the Maruti Oil spec. that time was SG/20w40 plz correct if wrong! As SG rating is obsolete now, which is the equivalent new rating? Synthetics like castrol Magnatec rating 10W40/20W50, any of these can replace 10W40 rating safely? One person told me that in old cars, M800 1991, the gap between cylinder and piston will be more than new generation cars so using synthetic or 10w40 oils will create engine problems and its better to go for original 20w40 or 20w/50 rating..is it true? plz help
  4. Which grade engine oil for M800 1991 Type-I model?

    The castrol website says Magnatec is a SAE 10W-40 grade oil. As far as I know maruti recommends SG/20w40 grade for M800 1991 model. But I found Castrol 'Motor Oil' conforms to API SG/CD, SAE 20W50. So please help me to decide...
  5. Please tell me which grade engine oil ie. SF, SG, SH is good for Maruti 800 1991 model which clocked over 90K.

    Thanks for the advise. Now, I finished patch & painting work in one gaurage in Cochin not MAS, and also replaced most of the body parts. The gaurage guy told me that he is using sandex paint with hardner so no need of clear coat. The total expense is as follows: Patch work - 5000 full body painting(white) - 7000 Dismantling & assembling- 2000 Engine, gearbox removing & fixing for bonnet painting - 2000/- Spare parts - 8000/- Total-24,000/- Plz tell me if he charged reasonable...I'll post pictures soon.. The dashboard not painted as the guy told me the paint will peel off later so better not to paint. Is it true? If I do it in MASS approx. what will be the difference in quality & cost? How much does it cost to replace full wiring kit at MASS for M800 Type-I (91) carb model? Plz help.
