    Default diesel oil change

    hi all - i had my car MOT's yesterday (1.9cdti sri 150hp) with no problem so i thought id ask for a quick oil change whilst there, the dealer who is an independant quoted me £85 !! he said there was a special filter to also change? im dubious is this a dpf clean?

    ive rang a few other "quick fit" type places and they are quoting £45

    is there anything special i have to watch for when making oil and filter change?

    ta

    About £45 seems right. Have a go at doing it yourself? It's a walk in the park to do. Don't know what special filter he's referring to! Only one to change when doing oil is the oil filter, only a few quid.

    Depends what oil they are using too....a cheap place could just be pouring 10/40 semi in, where as in the CDTi you need fully synthetic 5/30 ideally or 0/30, 0/40 or 5/40.

    I've seen threads saying oil filter can be a tw@t to get off, socket slot rounded off etc? Otherwise I'dve had a go at mine.
