    Default Pertamina Engine Oil

    Hello all,

    I have recently taken delivery of a 2009 3.0 D4D Toyota Fortuner 4x2 with about 227 000 Kms. I have an oil change coming up very soon. I wanted to know if anyone on the forum has used Pertamina oils in the Fortuner and what your thoughts are?

    I do believe the most used oil the guys in this forum are using are Delo 400, Shell and Total.

    Also recommendations on brand of clutch to use eg. Luk, Valeo etc.

    Regards

    Netmaster

    Welcome.

    I have no experience with Pertamina, but looking at the specs on their website they only offer Diesel oil up to a CI4 rating. For your model diesel vehicle I would suggest a CJ4 or better.

    WTF is Petramina?

    Sounds like some dodgy South American brand.

    Hi there Jelo,

    It's, according to my cousin one of the best oils on the market. I think it stems from Malaysia if im correct. It is very aggressive in Australia and now starting in South Africa too.

    Cheers

    Then as Kobus said, check the rating of the oil against the Toyota spec.

    15W40 CF-4 is the minimum spec for the D4D for our climate according to the owners manual.
