Short journeys - Oil Change 1.9JTDM ?

Hello All,
Due to job location change now my trip to work is only 5 miles each way. So most days that all mileage the car does. Does anyone know when oil should be \ recommended to be changed as I believe when only doing short trips the oil should be changed more frequently ! ? Thanks in advanced

Doesn't the car tell you when it needs an oil change?

Dirty Diesels have an oil degradation sensor. Just get the oil changed when the when the DPF clogs or the EGR valve gets blocked with soot

Standard service interval will be fine, but you are correct oils do not like short cold journeys so if you want to do an earlier, or interim change then it can only be a good thing.
