Hello friends,

I again went to KBSC last week, 3 things to talk about related to this discussion:


    I had read the owner's manual, OD should be used only going up hill and down hill; Senior technician of KBSC told me the same thing. But, after getting some advise from Marky last month, using OD off during < 80/90 KM/H save more petrol. So there is some controversion here.



    I had did a oil change from Castrol Magnetic to Elf Monocarbon (both semi-synthetic) last week. Elf outperform the smoothness and car heat of Accent. I felt the gear shifting is better (AT), engine running smoother, low heat of the engine. I recommend you guys should try it.



    Is about the grounding issue, please refer to grounding topic

whether u shall on/off the OD or not is up to ur preference since our car's auto tanimission can change the gear automatically...
no lah,...
Code:
using OD off during < 80/90 KM/H save more petrol
...shall be on the OD at anytimes....hahaha......what is the theory behind this statement ?
Marky, Pls do not misleading ppl here

For the time being, I still prefer the Castrol Magnetic

Hi david,
Glad that you enjoy the engine oil. Do call me if you have any feedback. I always suggest the best for my friends.

As for the OD issue, as I have mention, it was just my 2 cents when I share with you. Best you observe it yourself in the long term. Suggest to you to use OD off for 1 month to and fro from office and the other OD on for the other month so that you can compare it yourself.

Yeah, I think Sibeh has interpret me wrongly or I misleaded through conversation. I apologize on that.

For the OD issue, from my observation, I felt like using OD off during town driving / below 80-90 KM/H give me more power and better fuel consumption. Although this is a very subjective topic, but nevertheless I am very interested to find out what is the theory behind what the manual and service technician talked about versus what Marky has recommended and what I experienced.

What I can conclude is, using OD during jam, below 80-90 KM/h driving really good, powerful and fuel savings, its just that my journey to office includes mixture of fast and slow driving, so what I tried to do is to use OD like a kind of M/T where when the car moves below 70/80 KM/H, i will turn off the OD to lower the gear and gain power, where later when the traffic allow to go up till 80/90 KM/h then I switch OD on again to gain for speed driving. It is quite ok with that.

There was this time I was testing the same methodology but with the lower range of 40/60 Mph (~60-70 Km/h), but felt like not that smooth.

My only worry now is really whether this will have any bad impact on OD or not.

Admin: Pls post the issue of the OD to the topic of the OverdriveTQ

will the way u do affect the auto tranmission later?
it maybe right and is something like always using the 3rd/4th gear for the manual car most of the time when the speed is around 70/80 km/h
but it may not be the case for the auto car, I wonder Shocked Confused

Hi David, And as I have suggested the other day, you can either drive with OD off from hse to office (to and fro) or with it OD on. I don't advice to on and off it in between driving unless you're sure that you are caught in a jam as bad as KL where start and stop is very frequent. Best to use OD on during highway driving when the RPM is lower compared to KM/H.

Hi Marky,

There is no accusation of such, what I really tended to find out is the logic behind advise of yours (OD on and OFF each one day to test) as well as from KBSC senior technician. I took the "risk" or otherwise to test drive (as what I described OD on and OFF by speed variation). This has nothing to do with what you had said.

I guess Slbeh has bring up some heat from the start isn't it?

Well, anyhow I am really glad to getting known to use the Elf oil, it is really fantastic, lower fuel consumption, better shifting, smooth driving, lower engine noise and heat.

I do recommend those that are still using Castrol Magnetic, give it a try on Elf Monocarbon oil. You don't have to do the test that I did... hahaha... Laughing

Have you change your ATF fluid before every 20-30k km? It must use SPIII, not Dexron III unless you add in friction modifier. Also, change the ATF filter every 30-40k km or so.

well, i usually put my gear at N at every traffic light... better i think its safer, when you stop at the traffic light, you will be quite close to the car in front, and by just accidently lifting you feet of the brake a bit, you might hit the car in front. so better put it in N everytime you stop...EXCEPT for jammed road, changing gear will be tiring beside wearing off the gears, hehehehe.
