    Question Service Question - Oil

    My 1.9 Cdti (150) is on the varible service interval and wasn't due another service for another year (Vx carried out full service last year), but as the car was going to have its 1st MOT done I decided I would have a mini service done incld oil/filter. The garage I use is excellent, but I have a question. When I picked the car up they kindly give me a spare litre of oil for top ups of the oil they had put in.

    They have used VW PD engine oil (10-40w) fully synthitic, but it does say on the back of the bottle can also be used for Vauxhall/Ford/Etc (High performace engines). I think based on that the oil will be fine for the engine, what you guys think??????? I will replace it on a yearly basis from now on in

    Cheers all for any comments

    Your handbook should say the exact specification required for your car. i can't remember what the codes are, but you should be able to cross reference to the bottle.

    what they should have used to get the full 20,000 mile service intervals is VX's own 5W30 fully synthetic oil, or one that meets the extended service interval specs..
