    1.7 CDTI How many miles per oil changes..

    1.7 CDTI 55 plate How many miles between oil changes..

    had it changed at 40,000 miles with semi-synthetic 10w 40

    its now on 45,000 miles. is it due for a change or will it last up till 50,000 miles (every 10,000 miles) i will be keeping it for about 3 1/2 more years, up to (100,000 miles)

    how many miles can the 1.7 cdti do ???

    in my old ford escort van i changed the oil every 5,000 miles

    ran it up to 120,000 miles trouble free..

    so this 1.7cdti should do a lot more

    You will be safe at 5000 and the engine will like it.

    Are these engines not a 20,000m/2yr interval or is that just the NA petrol engines with this?

    2 year or 20,000 for fuel filters, oil is a different matter all together.

    It's not an EJ20 mate, it'll do more than 5000 miles between oil changes, I think the CDTi's are 20000 mile intervals, changing the oil regularly say every 5000 is great for engine longevity.

    Modern Diesels should last well into 200,000 miles as long as their well maintained, my old Transit connect had 214,000 miles and was still going strong when I got rid of it, A guy a work has just bought a new SRi CDTi Vectra B on the strength that his old '98 DTi Vectra had 320,000 miles all on the original engine and gearbox.

    Its personal preference but for me its 5000 and its out regardles of the engine, why worry over a 20 min job and a couple of quid.

    i think it is 20,000 intervals.

    so every 10,000 miles should be fine :-)

    is semi-synthetic 10w 40 ok?

    I totally agree I'd love to do 5000 mile changes, But for me it would mean changing it every 5-6 weeks, I cannot justify spending that much time and money changing oil.

    You should be using 5/30 fully synthetic in a 55 plate car & every 10,000 miles should be fine.

    I change mine every 5k too. It's not expensive to do and it takes very little time. It has a certain pain-in-the-arse value but the old saying goes - 'take care of your car and it'll take care of you'
