Which oil do I need for 2002 diesel
Posted 18 May 2011 - 08:30
According to the Halfords page I need 5w30 if I have PD engine, 5w40 if I have not got PD engine but do have variable service and 5W40 if I do not have PD engine but have fixed service.
How do I find out if I have PD engine or not and if I don't how do I find out if I have variable service?
With Pd Eng (from 01\2001 to 12\2002) -5W40
W/o Pd Eng Variable Serv (from 01\2001 to 12\2004) - 5W30
W/o Pd Eng Fixed Service (from 01\2001 to 12\2004) - 5W40

To check to see if you are on fixed or variable, the easiest way is to see if the car has been serviced every 10,000 miles / 1 year, if it has then you are on fixed, if the intervals are up to 18,000 miles and 3 years you will be on variable, in the front of the service book it will also give you a QC1 etc code - BUT that will only tell you what the car was on when it left the factory!

So which VW50x xx is also suitable?
Castrol Magnatec diesel is VW505 00/VW505 01
Castrol edge turbo desiel 5w40 is VW 505 01 / 505 00 / 502 00
Castrol edge turbo desiel 5w30 VW 504 00 / 507 00
So do I have to use the 5w30 cause its 507 00 or are the others ok too?
According to wikipedia http://en.wikipedia....i/Škoda_Octavia
1.9 8v TDI Diesel 1,896 cc (1.896 L; 115.7 cu in) 4cyl SOHC PD 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp) @4000 rpm 240 NÂ·m (180 lbÂ·ft) @1800â€“2400 rpm ATD/AXR 2000â€“2010
Accoring to my manual I have 74kw and engine code ATD so why is it not PD
