Don't forget a new washer

I have recently got an electric pump where you stick the tube down the dip stick hole and suck everything out which is what a lot of garages do now

I do have 1 washer left from my previous D40 but I don't think this one needs it.

2. I won't use the method you say the garages uses because all the "rubbish" or how do you say? all the remaining "****"? stays in the sump, atleast by draining you remove some if not most.

I might be young but I like to take care of my vehicles so any advice on how to do it properly rather than quickly are welcome

Thanks nonetheless

"I do have 1 washer left from my previous D40 but I don't think this one needs it."

I think you'll find it's good practice to replace the drain plug washer and for a couple of cents, not a great saving. Whether the 2.5's is the right size of not is another matter. But each to their own.

I have been doing some research on this recently, and you need 5W30 C4 fully synthetic oil. The C4 is for the SAP content of the oil itself.

C4 is specified for a lot of Renault engines including the 3.0 DCI V9X. It specifies this so the SAP does not block/damage the DPF filter apparently!

Shock horror C4 oil is a tad more expensive than the other C oils, but best use the correct one right!

I have no idea actually

But my uncle used it on his Toyota Yaris D4d (which has a dpf) and I did last year on my 2.5dci D40 (without Dpf) both still running fine. But i'm going to check again to make sure, thanks anyway

You really do need a C4 grade if you want your DPF to last.
C4 has the lowest SAPS impurities as 'fosterboy' says.
I suspect early failures of DPFs on many engines may well be related to use of incorrect oils.
As with many things with modern engines, it is way more complicated than many folk realize...

The plural of anecdotes is not data. Anecdotes however, are better than hearsay.... And keep your NOx and particulate emissions LOW - it's better than killing your kids.

Well I checked and it says this:
Api: SM/CF
ACEA: A3/B4/C3
BMW: LL-04

No "C4"

If it really isn't any good then I will buy another one. My local shop sells this

https://www.auto5.be/fr/produit/huil...goryName=48601

It's 5w30
Full synthetic
C4
For DPF

Would that be any good?
