    Default Which oil for 03 2.2 DTi service,

    Hi all,

    Pick up our Signum on Saturday, so am taking a few days off to service, clean it and tinker with it properly. Which oil do you diesel owners prefer to use in your engines ??

    I always change my car oils every 4500 miles (max) and have access to a trade card.

    Anything else I should be thinking of changing whilst tinkering, I'm planning on a Courtenay Air filter, or are K & N the most popular brand ?

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Hi. I have a 2.2dti too and also change the oil at about every 5000 miles. I use Vaux own 10/40 semi its not too dear and always available. I also change the air filter every year and the pollen filter yearly too.

    I`ve owned mine for 20 months now and very pleased with this car in economy and performance. I have fitted a tow bar to pull my 1100kg caravan and it does this with great ease.

    Hope you have many happy years with yours as im having.

    at 4.5K, i'd fill with the 10W40 VX semi synth as well, as the 5W30 fully synth longlife will have little benefit for you, but costs a whole heck of a lot more..
