Oil change every 5k, help please.
Hi guys, I have a Dec 08 TDI 170.
it Is almost on 97k and is booked in for a service next weekend.
I intend to run this car until it's time for the scrap yard or uneconomical to maintain.
It has full history on the long life service plan.
After hearing horror stories about the potential DPF issues, I have decided that for the sake of the cost of oil and genuine filter, I am going to change them every 5k myself after the next service. potentially prolonging the life of the engine etc.
I am still going to service it when it flags up too.
My question is....... What is the best oil to use on the 170, as people say it uses different oil to the 140 to prevent DPF issues.
your help is appreciated peeps.
