I have been using Amsoil Signature 5-30W for sometime. Based on Amsoils recommandation, the oil change interveral is 15k miles/12 months for severe condition. Do you have any advice on that? I am planning to do so.

I'm using Mobil 1 and Syntium 3000 or 5000. I change the oil every 10,000km for turbo engine and 20,000km or 12month for n.a engines. I have no idea on other oils and refrain frm using them because there are many fake oils sold by direct sellers.

Need your expert advice. I have been using Amsoil Signature 5W-30 for some time. Base of the recommendation from Amsoil, the oil change interval is 15k mils/12 months under severe condition. I am planning to do so. Would you have any comment on that?

Sorry I think there must be a double posting on this topic. If you can check out the Amsoil page, it has quite a detail on that oil. Assuming the oil is genuine. So I am not sure if this apply to our turbo engine. Any concern?

David Cook said...

Thanks for the info. Completed the oil change and replaced the filter. Unfortunately I'm getting a leak from the filter housing. I think I have overtightened the o-ring as it was bulging out on one side. Hand tight doesn't seem tight enough. Got a good deal on the Peugeot recommended oil - Total Quartz 5w-30 on Amazon. £27.

Wan Ab.H.A.B said...

Hi David, did you replace the O-ring as well? New oil filter comes with an O-ring

David Cook said...

Yes, did replace the o-ring. Realised my mistake eventually. Not used a cartridge type before and treated the ring like a gasket and placed it on the plastic shoulder instead of the groove inboard. It was never going to seal where I had it. Cheers.

Hi uncle D.can i ask where to buy the oil filter & how much does it cost?thanks a bunch!

Wan Ab.H.A.B said...

I usually buy Peugeot spare parts from Euromotive Auto Parts near Bdr Tsk Selatan. The oil filter costs RM30+. Click HERE

I have done my oil plenty of times in my SAAB. I was shocked to see how easy mine was to do. Most European cars are more complicated than their American counterparts. It makes the oil change difficult at times because getting to the filter can be a tight squeeze. I was surprised to see that yours wasn't too hard at all. http://www.billsmithsauto.com/service.html
