2013 Kia Rio EX
First 600 miles on the engine now. Ready to perform first oil change. Which full synthetic oil would you guys recommend?
Normal engine temperature is at least 85°C and this is regulated by the thermostat and fan. This is much hotter than will be caused by standing in the direct sun; the engine will probably be cooler than the car interior after a few hours standing!Summer is coming here in my country and It can get really really really hot. My car stays under direct sunlight most of the day while I'm at work. I've read and heard synthetic can help the engine stay 10-15 degrees colder than dino oil giving the engine a longer life.
