1. Jack up the front part of your vehicle. Make sure that its high enough for you to put a container where the use oil will be drained.
The engine has plenty of grunt and it generates more torque than the Forester, this is strange because both vehicles can tow up to 1800kg which makes them both great towing vehicles. On the road, the CX-5 has chunky steering that feels more solid yet less accurate than the Subaru Forester. On the road with the lower centre of gravity the handling is quite good, but off-road is where the CX-5 falls by the wayside.
Remember, you should know the viscosity recommended to be used for your vehicle. You can base it from the manual. But usually on tropical places, they recommended the use of 50-40 viscosity while on places that has winter or four-season climate, they recommend using 40-30 viscosity. It would be helpful for old engine to use thicker oil like 20w 50 because older engine are prone to oil leak for the seal would worn out. On the other hand modern engine would be fine using 15w 40.
Mineral based engine oil is good for everyday use and for budget change oil maintenance. Ideally, you should change your engine oil every 3 months or 5000km (whichever comes first). The advantage of using this kind of oil is that its affordable and you change your oil more frequently. Remember, using fresh oil will help protect your engine and preserves its condition. The disadvantage would be it is not recommended for high performance and racing engine, plus you should give more time to change your oil.
