    Default 1.9 cdti oil?

    tried using the search function but it didnt come up with anything!

    what is the best oil to use on my 1.9 cdti ?

    also is there a better glowplug you can get as these also need replacing

    cheers

    Not sure on glowplugs, but I would always recomend using the ones as specified by the manufacturer.

    As for oil, i've got 5w30 fully synthetic in mine. It's the GM long life stuff, compatible with DPF's.

    Could you please update your profile, we can then see what MY your car is

    If your car is under warranty, then go for VX GM-LL spec oil
    If your car is out of warranty, then any synthetic oil but no lower than 10W40

    What makes think the glowplugs need replacing?
    You really need to remove the one nearest the relay and inspect it
    If that is white then all four need replacing
    Any new glowplug will do, given how little they are used

    Stick with the proper 5/30 oil, I know some will say that this is for the longer service intervals.

    My opninion, is that if thats what is put in when the car is built, then stick with it.
