I can only suggest isn’t doing their job I mean, the (correct) oil MUST be at or preferably before the service

Another sure fire way of destruct on these cars is filling the oil. In the old days, the tube ended at the bottom of the so the stick was free to dip the level any real problem. Now, the tube goes well the sump.

The result is no blowback, but to dip the oil you pull the stick, wipe it, dip it and it again. If the level is even a few mm the mark the engines fate is

Another thing with hdi dti, etc in fact ANY turbo engine is the need to allow the to spool down after a run. If you live at the top of a hill, let the idle for, at the very 30 seconds, but rather a full The reason is the turbo runs very hot. So if you rev it then off, the turbo will be at high rpm (they can reach at full boost!!) and it needs oil to and cool it.

Once the engine is off, the oil is no flowing so the turbo is spinning on a bit of oil that is getting hotter This has the effect of creating build up. Once this the bearing of oil gets smaller the turbo cannot be lubricated any real efficiency. I am trying to it in simple terms.

It is a lot more complicated, but suffice to the turbo tends to go bang!

So, to sum up. oil services are bad. They engines. I see it all the time. Oil galleries got smaller as engines get more

The result is more heat is and the likely hood that as oil are skipped, the carbon build up is narrowing of arteries. Eventually gives.

I had a Picasso 2.0 HDi with + miles on it. It started well, well and never used The reason being I changed the oil 8000 miles always the turbo to spool down.

I had a 2002 Renault Laguna 1.9 178,000 miles on original Again, regular oil changes and the turbo to spool down.

Do you see a

I hope this is of some use to
