Proton Satria Neo R3 Review

New addition to the R3 family. The specification of this car is almost the same with Proton Satria Neo Lotus Racing but minus some of the expensive parts such as titanium header, ohlins adjustable and AP racing brake system. Does it handles well like the special edition Neo Lotus Racing? Curious? then ..lets see how this Proton Satria Neo R3 performs :)

Engine : Routine Maintenances.

Hi guys.
I've received so much questions on what engine oil that i use, what type of coolant , transmission oil etc. Mostly about engine routine maintenance. So, for today post, i would like to write about it.

Usually, i'll change my car engine oil every 5000 km (maybe less sometimes). The brand that i always go for is Castrol Magnatec. I choose semi-synthetic blend 10w40.

The price is affordable and from my experiences, this engine oil make my engine feel smoother. Well, any other good brand (within the price of the magnatec) that you guys wanna suggest? maybe i can compare which one is better :)

And for the oil filter, i always go for proton original oil filter.The price is damn cheap and it is also reliable since it is produced by the car manufacturer. Btw, we gotta take extra precaution since there are a lot of fake ones in the market now. We need to replace the oil filter everytime we change the engine oil.

For the transmission oil, i use Castrol MTF EP. The transmission oil change is necessary every 20,000-30,000 km. It can prevents from damaging the gearbox.

For radiator coolant, i always go for Toyota 'long life' coolant. Most of radiator shop that i go recommend this coolant since the coolant are good and affordable.

So, that's all for now. I hope you guys can suggest me some good stuffs that you use in your routine car maintenance so that i can have more choices for next routine maintenance.
