Hi all,

I'm after some advice about which engine oil to use in my 2007 Xtrail 2.2 DCI, milage is 104k. It is regularly serviced with the recommended oil etc but the engine is gradually becoming noiser and noiser and now sounds similar to a tractor when cold... There is no excessive smoking and power seems about right. No oil leaks etc.

Question - should I stick with the recommended oil or can I go for a slightly thicker viscosity just to quieten things down slightly?

Any advice gratefully recieved :)

Tim

I just assumed that the tractor noise was because it was a high milage diesel...could it be an early sign of cam chain issues?

Is anyone aware of how long the camchain and system should last?

Many thanks

Hello all, I am new to this site and new to Xtrails, have just bought 2 of them for the whole family, one is 05 and the other is 07, both done around 120k miles and the newer one particularly is very noisy but performs well.
Have decided to give her a birthday treat in the form of an oil change and was wondering if a thicker oil might quieten her down a bit. I see that Europarts are offering all sorts of filters, but the Crossland one is cheapest at a little over £1!
Any thoughts / advice would be very welcome.

Thanks, Chris
