Hi there..a little confused as to what is the best engine oil to use for my 54 plate 2.2DCi X trail ,I have read people saying 5w 30 and 10w 40 ..could anyone please inform me as to what the best grade for my X trail will be
Have a read of this post in full.xtruck said:I have the same question and the previous post does not really answer it - it just suggests that 5w-40 is okay to use.
From memory, in the owners manual Nissan remommend 5w30.
Neilsen oils have 5 litres of 5w-30 Catrol Edge for £37.99 & the same quantity of 5w-40 TD Catrol Egde for £29.99
I am aware that you need 5.2 litres for an oil change, but I have spare 5w-40 TD Edge as I use it in my S2000.
