[Filters & Oil] 2.0HDI - Confused About Oil - Semi or Fully Synth?
#1
Sorry if this has been covered before, I did a search but could only see results for the 1.6 Engine.

I've just bought a 2004 2.0 HDI Multispace and want to change the oil & filter so that I know when it's last been done. The problem is that I'm not sure whether to use Fully 5W 40 or Semi Synth 10W 40.  The handbook says Total Quartz 7000 or 9000. At 110k miles it's probably not going to make too much difference other than cold starts, but some engines prefer Semi Synth and others Fully Synth.

Does this engine have a DPF?

Advice much appreciated.
Thanks

IIRC 7000 is 10/40 fully synth and 9000 is 5/40 fully synth. If it were my car, and I was unsure, I'd go for the 10/40. Don't think your car will have a DPF, but can't say it 100% hasn't.

Not the owner, just the bloke who looks after it.

ALL the owner does is drive it and put fuel in. Rolleyes

No DPF on old 2.0hdi. Mine has full synthetic 10/40.
So where does this bit go then ?

Thanks for the replies, much appreciated. Still finding my way around the various documents, from what I've read since my original post, both semi & full oil types are ok. The Service Guide on P10 has a picture showing which oil types fit which climate conditions. For the UK, it looks like anything from 0w/40 - 15w/50 is acceptable.
In the end I bought 5w/40 fully synth from CP4L.

apparently the oils dont mix, so if your doing an oil change and you dont know what in there, you need to do a really good flush before re filling

I did a quick search about this & from what I read there's no longer a problem with mixing so it's ok these days to mix oils. Not much choice in my case as I have no idea what's in there atm. Smile

If it states 0w40 is an acceptable viscosity then I would use good old Mobil 1 0w40, £30 from Costco.

Either Mobil 1 New Life or Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel, the published specs are identical for both oils, have used it in several cars including our old 07 Clio DCi.

Register on the ECP website and they will send you an email almost every day with their latest special offer....Wait until they have their  "Buy one get one free"  on-line offer on and get 10 litres of their Tripple QX 5w40 fully synthetic oil for £25. (order on-line for pick up)

Or you can use the semi synthetic version of Tripple QX which is a bit cheaper.

Change the oil twice a year (regardless of low mileage) and you won't go wrong.

I've always maintained I would rather have clean oil in my engine than filthy long life oil !

Who told you that?

You can mix mineral and semi synth or synthetic which ever way you want.
