DO YOU KNOW YOUR STUFF ABOUT OIL?

Changing your engine oil is an essential maintenance operation for your Citroën. You should replace the oil regularly with the grade of lubricant that’s required for your vehicle.  This eliminates all the impurities caused by the running of your vehicle and guarantees the longevity of your engine.

 

Using the wrong oil, or not keeping your oil topped up can seriously damage your engine. You could even risk breaking down and invalidating your warranty.

 

This is always done as part of your vehicle’s next Service. You can even book an appointment online.

What does it mean for my Citroën?

By carrying out regular servicing and maintenance, and by choosing the correct grade of oil for your vehicle, you’re looking after its key components.
Oil helps to:


• Reduce friction and  wear of moving parts in the engine, for example rods and pistons
• Cool the engine efficiently
• Clean internal mechanisms
• Protect against corrosion

What does it mean for me?

As well as peace of mind that your engine is running as smoothly as possible, what you might not realise is the impact the right oil has on your fuel efficiency and emissions.
Using a Citroën approved engine oil can help to:


• Improve fuel efficiency
• Reduce CO2 emissions
• Make it easier to start your engine in cold weather

Does it matter what type of oil I use?

Absolutely.

 

The engineers at Citroën and Total have worked together for decades to create engine and oil combinations that work in perfect harmony. Our compact and efficient engines contain many small parts; very specific oil is needed for each of our cars and vans in order for the oil to do its job correctly.

 

You can always find the correct oil for your vehicle in your maintenance handbook. If you’re not sure, your local Citroën Dealer will be able to help. They only use the correct grade of oil when working on your vehicle.
