    Default 10w40 oil in 1.9CDTi?

    I've had my car serviced from an independent garage using genuine Vauxhall parts but the Engine oil is 10w40, is this the wrong oil and will it affect the DPF?

    V.51NGH

    They should have really put in 5W-30, but the main thing that is crucial is that it is of the correct grade, specifically relating to the sulphur content. If it's over the Vx recommendations, and you have a DPF problem and they can tell it's due to the wrong oil, then they won't entertain any warranty claim.

    I'm probabily going to flush the engine and change it for GM 5w 30 there's a local Vauxhall spres shop near me who do it really cheap than the stealers!
