Default Oil question

I changed the oil in my 2006 307hdi yesterday, after giving the shop my registration they sold me 5w30 oil.

After changing the oil and filter I am now getting low oil pressure warning light as it warmed up, i stopped the engine immediately. I can see oil through the cap so oil is getting round the engine so I think 5w30 is too thin.

The old oil was quite thick so I suspect a different oil was used previously (only bought the car 6 months ago).

Having looked at various sites they say I could use 5w40 or 10w40 instead of the 5w30.

So my question is can I use either of the latter I am not sure if my car has the FAP but suspect it has, if I use something like MOBIL SUPER 2000 X1 DIESEL 10W40 would this be ok.

5w30 should be OK.

Yes 5w30 is one of the oils that is recommended but after putting it in, I am now getting low oil pressure warning light on. I want to check if I can put a 10w40 in instead as this is also indicated as an alternative.

Silly question but have you put enough oil in the engine? Mine took over 5 litres in my 407 hdi before the low oil light went out which surprised me as with previous cars I never filled to max but with the 407 I had to and I also used 5w30.

Oil was registering at Max on the dipstick so I think I put enough in.

I read on this forum somewhere that some non oe filters can cause this problem - did you put on a purflux or peugeot filter - or a halfords special?

Is that after the filter has filled and the engine has run for a few min to circulate the oil then checked after engine has stopped for a bit etc etc

I just put in a universal halfords special filter so maybe that might be the reason. I'm just about to change it back to the old oil filter and see if that does anything. Cheers for the info
