    Which oil

    Sorry to sound daft but I have checked my manual, but cannot find what spec oil I need.

    i have a 1.9tdi 130.

    For some reason I have 5w30 in my head?

    any one tell me the correct oil to use?

    Thanks

    Which oil

    I use 5W40 fully synthetic from Europarts or Car parts for less which is recommended for PD engines (mine's the PD 130 as well) and it's only about £30 for 5 litres.

    so 5w40 will be better then 5w30 ?

    I use 5w30. Didnt know you could use 5w40
    Surely the 5w40 is thicker and will take longer to react all the engine

    I use Castrol Edge and find this very good, need to search around for the best deal (google )

    Re: Which oil

    If you read the manual there is a different range of viscosity you can use

    Yeah I have seen them, lets hope the oil will state what viscosity it is!
