Hi everyone,
seriouly considering a Auto-rx cleaning in my Euro Honda K24Z3. I read in their website it sould be performed with a dino oils (I understand Group II)
I cannot find info about wich group different oils belong to when reading the specs. Am confused, is a semi-synthetic a dino?
My car will take anything from 0w20 to 10w30. Currently using Petro Canada Supreme Synthetic 10w30.
Any ideas?
Thanks

'Mineral' or 'Semi Synthetic' is dinosaur oil

Shell HX5 is available in your marketplace - or use Ebay/Amazon to search for '5w30 mineral oil' or 5w30 semi synthetic'


Cable ties should hold it

5w30 C3 is appropriate, it will be mostly group 3 with is semi synthetic - in Germany they would call it sythesetechnologie. It is not Vollsythetische

Fyi...Auto-Rx, an ester product, is a temporary fix for tired seals so leaks will reappear once you switch back to synthetic.

If a HM oil isn't working then just replace the seals.

How long would you leave the Auto-rx in?

Is this a 20 minute, "idling in a warm engine only" application or a 2,000 km driving cleanse?

I've said that close to a hundred times on this site because I believe the best way to fix a leak is to replace the comprimised gasket.

Every single time, without fail, I would see several replies saying it would be too hard to replace the gasket, or take too long, or that people would rather live with the drip than 'waste' time repairing an older vehicle that isn't worth a lot.

Its good to see another member on here who advocates replacing failed gaskets smile

not a single leak in my engine. only a a bit of oil consumption (1.5 liters per 10000 km). thinking it might be sticky rings. The first owner did long OCI's
I am following the procedure described on the website. add the additive during the oil change, run it for 3-4000km, change the oil againg and run it as a rinse for another 5000km.

Generally on BITOG,

Dino = "Mineral" or "Conventional"
Blend = " Semi-Synthetic" or "Syn Blend"
Full Synthetic, explains itself

Dino = Group I = "Mineraloel".

Visit the Liqui Moly Homepage.

Then Choose Engine oil , then "Oelart" (Type of oil), then choose "Mineral".

On the german Homepage, you then have the choice of 24 different Mineral - Group I - Dino oils.
