  1. My car with a milage of 150000kms used mobil 2000, 10w-40. Since in the past i used the car regularly and 5000km was reached before 6 months. But Nowadays I use the car rarely and my service guy adviced to use mobil 1000 which is not a semi synthetic and the cost would be lesser compared to mobil 2000. His point was that changing the oil at 6 months interval for a milage lesser than 5000km s is fine with mobil 1000(10w 40/ 10w 30) I would be pleased if any expert could comment on the point.

    Premio 2009 CVTF

    Hi Rumesh, I exactly don't know how the CVTF was changed and there is no way of contacting the owner. Oil change was done at GLxTZ PAxK Gampaha. OCV was untouched during the tune up. Engine seems to be bit sluggish only during low speeds.

    Premio 2009 CVTF

    Model- Premio 260 , 2009, My CVTF was changed by the previous owner at 41 000 km and the service tag says the next change is at 71 000 km. Is it needful to change the cvt oil at 30k interval or else to stick to the usual practice of oil change at 40k interval? Present ODO is 70 000km and recently gone through a engine tune up which included throttle body cleaning, spark plugs cleaning & ultrasonic injector cleaning due to a slight low performance experienced on hard acceleration. But the problem exists after the tune up. Could this be solved by a fuel filter replacement or CVTF change?

    Premio Coolant Level.

    Coolant level has decreased abt 1cm in the bottle for a period of around 1 year(10 000km). Hope this as normal. Wanted to add Seiken red coolant 1l cause Toyota genuine comes as 4l which is too expensive for such a small amount of adding.

    Premio Coolant Level.

    Coolant level in the Radiator Overflow tank seems to be remaining between High and Low level marks. IS this normal in 1nz fe engines? Has anyone tried using "Bear brand" Seiken coolant(made in Japan) instead of the oem 1 nz fe engines red coolant?? Since its Japanese cannot google the specifications of seiken for compitabilty.

    Hi As speed decreases cooling starts to increase as normal automatically. AC compressor have been repaired/replaced by previous owner. Anyway no details about it.

    Premio 2007 AC Not working above 80 kmh

    AC seems to be fine while the car is on idle and up to 80-85kmh. As the speed increases the cool starts decreasing and finally only the blower air remains. Is this related to speed or high rev ??

    Premio 2009 Maf Sensor

    No engine was running on idle and at that moment only the MAF value was 300% higher. After the tune up car has been running more than 1000 kms without any faults. Fuel consumption was slightly reduced. Only issue was rough idle haven't increased. What is the idle rpm with AC on for the premios?

    Premio 2009 Maf Sensor

    After observing the car for few days I have noticed the idle rpm remains steady between 600-650 with A/C on on all the gear postions(P,R,N& D). Is this normal to Allions/Premios& Axios ???
