Depends on your driving pattern and the oil you use.i was thinking of changing the oil and filter on my 2.0hdi twice a year.
what are the service intervals for the oil and filter
i have just replaced my gfs oil and filter on her ford ka after a year and it was still clean
I did some research on the 1.6 110 engine that's in the 307, 407 and Ford Focus. All three have different recommended service intervals. The one with the longest interval is the 407, and that one seems to suffer most from turbo failures. Co-incidence?I wouldn't go by your handbook as the oil recomendations change - as indeed they have for the 1.6HDi lumps.
good advice thereBest way to flush is to put cheap oil in, run the engine for half an hr then drop it back out, refill with the good stuff. I only do this after major work or when i buy a car, no need to do it often.
Diesel oil (ex. Amsoil HDD) can clean an engine without risk of blocking the oil galleries or the oil pickup mesh.good advice there
my car seems to have been looked after and the oil changed often enough
i only asked as my gf does alot more stop start then me and her oils clean after a year. the service history on her car was a little hazzy as well
my car doesnt have a dpf. does anyone know what the service interval actually is
i have done just over 4000 miles in 6 months since the last change
I've never heared of that! I think I will use the 10/40 magnatec as that's always been good in the cars I've had in the past, even made a smart car run good :lol:you could buy high mileage engine oil for high mileage cars i had some myself a couple of years back when i owned a 306 with 110,000 miles on the clock, kept it ticking over beautifully but not sure if you can still get it now as ive never seen it in any autoshops.
gonna do a oil and filter change on mine when the weather picks up abit.
