MG ZS Engine Oil Finder

Who would have thought that MG would even appear on the European car market again after selling the trademark rights to China? It happened anyway and the traditional British brand is back! Founded in 1923 as "Morris Garages" from Oxford, England, the company disappeared from the market after 2005 because it had to file for bankruptcy due to poor sales figures. The trademark rights were transferred to the Chinese Nanjing Automobile Group, which in turn was bought by the SAIC Motor Group. What a complex company history!

What Engine Oil For MG ZS?

Motor oil is a vital part of your MG ZS's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key jobs is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts which helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

The About The MG brand
To a lot of people, the MG brand was believed to be dead for many years, is now reappearing and is primarily concentrating on modern drive technologies in order to meet the ravages of time and the future. Also on board are plug-in hybrid models and pure electric cars.

When it comes to technology, MG has limited itself to safety-related assistance systems. The latest version of the MG ZS is equipped with adaptive cruise control, various sensors, traffic sign recognition and, as a luxury, also with a 360-degree camera. Savings are noticeable as soon as the comfort functions of these assistants are concerned.

Regularly checking and changing your MG ZS engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.
