An engine oil service is only as good as the quality of the engine oil.......and filter

I've read some bad things about Fram and Bosch

Iv'e read good things about Mann

I've also read best to use genuine Nissan filter albeit these are made by champion?

Has anyone got any particular recommedations on engine oil filters through experience :?:

Apologies if this has been covered before

What is the best engine oil to use in a 2003 2.2Di? I would always have used Castrol in any of my previous cars but am i looking for 5W30 or something else??

I think most people are now running 5W40. I certainly am. It makes the diesels much more refined. I'm a big fan of Fuchs Titan, but I think any good quality fully-synthetic oil would be OK.

I use 5W/40, Castrol Edge Diesel Turbo Oil.
If your changing the fuel filter I would recommend a genuine Nissan one as there have been a few problems with after market ones where the Di engine is concerned.

Hi,

I use Total as I can get at a good price from Micksgarage, especially when they do it on offer. Millers Oil Ireland is also very good, with next day delivery. The oil is a little more expensive, but exceeds manufacturer specs.

Kind Regards,

Eoin

I just check the price on paid on special, 5 Litres + 1 Litre Top up of Total Quartz €33.64.

I'd love try other brands, just for comparison sake, but it's hard to find them at a better price, or from places that will ship here.

Kind Regards,

Eoin

For Castrol Oils look at a Asda of all places! I found their oils up to £15 cheaper of the Edge compared to Opie or Halfords!

edit
Edge £8 more than I paid back in January and £7 more for the Magnatec! Must've been lucky - glad I stocked up! :whistle:

Is 5w40 the recommended oil for a 2.5 petrol as well? as looking on here i only really see references to the diesel
i have also been trying to find this information. was hoping this sticky-ed thread was what i was looking alas not.
every where i look someone recommends different oils
eurocarparts list 6/7 different ones
5/40,5/30,10/40,10/30,15/40 etc :[email protected]
found this site https://www.nielsencdg.co.uk/oil-finder.php
but this gives me a choice also depending on brand
0/30 or 0/40 personally i would have thought these types where for more high performance cars :?:
please help :bow:
