Choosing the best engine oil for turbo cars, diesel pickup truck or common rail turbo diesel SUV needs a really careful decision making. These heavy duty engines require best engine oil specification that can withstand heat at the same time protect engine and turbo kit by better lubrication.
For turbo diesel vehicle, we recommend the best fully synthetic engine oil (minyak enjin) specification with 5W40 or 5W30 API CI or API CF to make sure the oil can withstand high pressure compression on turbo engine and ensure free recirculation of the engine oil to the turbocharger system.
Using mineral or semi synthetic engine oil is a waste of money due to its frequency of servicing of every 5000km and mineral oil with high viscosity will probably tends to block the turbo lube system.
The cost of having fully synthetic engine oil is from RM160 for 4 liter, RM200 for 5 liter and Rm250 for 6 liter engine oil. Depends on what brand and quality. The engine oil filter will costs below RM50.
