Im driving a 2002 peugeot 307 1.4 hdi style. Just bought it a few weeks ago. Oil is fine at the minute as it was just out of the mot 2 months ago.

Going to buy some oil anyway, whats the best oil for my engine, and changing it every 10k miles or so is about right isnt it?...

Hi all
Sorry to bring this old thread up but after doing a search I am slightly confused.
I run a 1.4 hdi 206 2003 and have just done an oil change. Asked at the motor factors which engine oil I should be using and after looking up the make /model of car etc. through the reg N0. the geezer came up with fully synthetic 5w-30. Now I have put this in the engine and now when starting the engine from cold I am getting tappet rattle, once she's up to temp the engine quietens down. It didn't do this before and I am now worried about engine damage. Should I have used semi synthetic? I have been told by a mate that once an engine has been used on mineral or semi synthetic then fully synthetic should not be used. Is this true? is 10w40 synthetic the way to go? Any advise appreciated.

Cheers
Dave
