Age oold question --- Which Oil 1.9JTDm????
Ive been scouring the internet trying to ascertain the correct oil for my 1.9JTDm. The handbook advises synthetic-based SAE 5W-30 meeting FIAT 9.55535-S1 specs.
I checked the Selenia website and it recommends WR Pure Energy oil 5W-30 meeting FIAT 9.55535-S1 and ACEA C2 (DPF friendly) specs.
When checking a couple of well know oil suppliers they seem to be recommending sub spec oils not meeting the required specs.
What do others put in? I hear a lot of people telling me how temperamental Alfas can be so want to get it right.
Shell Helix 5W-40 is recommended on both sites but this doesnt meet the recommendations!!!! Helix Ultra 5W-30 is the correct stuff meeting both FIAT 9.55535-S1 and ACEA C2. Im now starting to think that the recommendations from these sites are way off the mark. What do others think? Are they to be trusted?
Anyway back to the case in point.... which oil is suitable?
If im going to follow Selenia recommendations then its a choice between Mobil 1 ESP 5W-30 Fully synthetic or Shell Helix Ultra Extra 5W-30 Premium Fully Synthetic Engine Oils
