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

Nissan use Mann parts in their service dept too.
Also the diesel fuel filters are made by MAHLE for Nissan

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.
