Default Correct engine oil

Trying to find the recommended oil for my car is like going through a maze. Car is a 308 1.6 hdi 90, 2009. Was told by local supplier it was Castrol magnatec 5/30 synthetic. Since putting it in the engine has developed a rattle when cold from cam area. Could it be the wrong oil or just coincidence? What oil does Peugeot recommend? If I need to change the oil is it worth while putting a decent engine flush through first? Should take the old oil back and make him drink it?

your car doesn't have a particulate filter so a low ash oil is not needed.
im not sure on the spec needed.

it is 5w30 fully synthetic though

I use Carlube C2 Carlube Motor Oil - 5w30 Carlube Triple R Fully Synthetic C2 and have had 40k of trouble free motoring. The engine purrs , even with 145k on the clock.

I always flush before every oil change using STP oil flush and change the oil every 12k without fail !

Cool Oil change

Thanks for that Pugpete, 5/30 is the right viscosity so I've been told but what does C2 mean?

It denotes that its a low saps oil:

These lubricants contain low levels of sulphated ash, phosphorus and sulphur. This technology optimizes the operation of the depolluting systems fitted to the most recent engines.

The SAPS contained in traditional lubricants can have a harmful effect on the post treatment systems that eliminate pollutant emissions. Particulate filters (DPF) are particulary sensitive to SAPS.

It's pretty much their brand name. The petrol variant is 'R1.

Thanks again Pugpete, learning all the time. I used to work in a garage 40 years ago. In those days we used to stick Duckhams 20/50 in every engine. How technology changes over the years. Bring back the Ford Anglia De-luxe and if you fancy something sporty the Triumph Vitesse.
