    If it`s a PD engine you must make sure it`s the right spec or you can very quickly wear/damage the cams.

    Thats the correct oil for PD130/150/160 engines that get the oil changed every 10,000 miles.

    Both engines use around 4.3l of Quantum Platinum 5w40 from the dealers. Well worth changing the oil and filter every 5-6k miles on a diesel
