How much oil ?
I wonder if anyone can tell me how much oil I will need to do an oil change on my 09 Berlingo XTR 1.6 D, please.
I am thinking of servicing my own car and know I will need to change the oil, oil filter, air filter and cabin filter. Is there anything else I need to change? The car is showing service + 5000 miles and there is now 57k miles on the clock.
Or should I just take it to the garage? It was MOT'd in Nov.
A 'gallon' can is enough but it should be the exact oil for the engine -theres even a specific variant of the grade for Citroen hdi motors.
Its your choice but I wouldnt take a chance after reading horror stories about these engines.

Ive just had the first 2 year service done on mine
It was done at a main dealer.
They did the oil,brake fluid and all the filters and charged £330.
If it wasnt for getting the service record stamped by a recognised name I would definately have done it myself.
You should make sure that the oil you use meets the PSA B71 2290 spec. Read the fine print on the container. Seems most major oil manufacturers make an oil with this spec. It takes 3.85 liters if memory serves. When you change the filter be sure to change the rubber o-ring in the filter cap as well. Make sure too that the nipple on the end of the filter is set into the recess on the engine block before torquing it down to 25 nm.

Also a specific oil drain procedure for these engines to ensure all old oil drains from sump. Otherwise sludging is possible & eventual blocking of turbo oil feed.
Thank you everyone, I think I'll take it to the garage. It may be the cheaper option in the end. I definitely can't afford a new engine.
What I do is drain the hot engine & remove the oil filter.Leave overnight to drain completely & refill in morning.Neilson do the Total 5/30 INEO at a competitive price.:thumbsup:

id love to know what this special procedure is as no one at the main dealers has heard of it?? get oil hot, remove drain plug and use a decent flush along with 5w30 low ash oil changed every 10k is a good way of not killing a turbo, but theres no secret method of emptying a sump.... Wink

Will second that, just got mine from neilson, cheapest price I could find


It is necessary to follow a specific oil change procedure on all DV6 and DV6U engines so as to ensure that no used oil remains to mix with the new oil.

The following method must be used:

• The engine oil temperature must be at least 50°C :
- the engine oil temperature is considered to be at 50°C when the water temperature indicator is between 80°C and 90°C or the cooling fan has cut in
• ensure that the vehicle is level (side to side and fore and aft)
• remove the oil filter to allow the circuit to drain completely
• remove the oil filler cap and the dipstick
• remove the drain plug
• allow the oil to drain by gravity for at least 10 minutes (DO NOT USE SUCTION METHODS)
• fit a new oil filter
• refit the drain plug with a new sealing washer
• fill the engine with quantity of oil recommended for the engine
• refit the oil filler cap and the dipstick
• run the engine at idle until the oil pressure warning lamp goes out (about 1 minute)
• wait 5 minutes
• check the oil level using the dipstick: the level should be as close as possible to, but not exceeding the maximum mark (1) so as to be between (1) and (3)

For information, the lower mark (2) = Min (0%) the upper mark (1) = Max (100%) the intermediate mark (3) = ¾ litre.


If the customer does not have the oil changed at the recommended intervals, the oil will become excessively polluted and will no longer ensure the correct lubrication of the engine. One of the first consequences is inadequate lubrication of the turbocharger bearings causing a failure which is repeated after the turbocharger is replaced. Subsequent symptoms resulting from the reduced level of lubrication will be a noisy engine and then destruction of the engine.

We remind you that if the customer does not keep to the servicing intervals recommended in the Maintenance and Guarantee Guide, the customer will be responsible for the durability of the mechanical parts of the engine.
In this case, the any related repairs needed are not covered by the new vehicle warranty.


If the oil changes are not done as described above, all deposits of old oil will not be removed and will very quickly pollute the new oil, accelerating the ageing of the oil in the engine lubrication circuit (even causing the oil to congeal).

The consequences for the engine are the same as if the oil change intervals are not observed. As a result, any related repairs needed are not covered under the new vehicle warranty.
So nothing special, just how you change the oil in any car, and that doesn't get all the oil from the sump, the sump bung is raised and will always leave 3-5mm of old oil in the sump no matter how hot or long you leave it to drain Wink it's nigh on impossible to remove all the old oil from an engine short of a pressure wash with the head and sump off
With regular changes using good oil,a little drop doesn't matter.It's when you have sludge in the sump it becomes a problem.Confusedalut:
