Hi all,

Got the 147 Collezione Limited Edition 1.9JTD - looking to do an oil change, however reading a lot of conflicting info when I've done a search on the forum.

Some people say get 5w-40, some say 10w-40.

Just to make sure - what is the best engine oil type I need? Car is a 08 plate on 54k miles.

Thanks in advance!

5W40

It's what Autolusso use, it's what Opie oils recommend, it's what I use.
+1 :thumbs: Change it regularly, every 4-5k, and your turbo will thank you too.

Manual for 156 states either oil is fine. I use 10w40.
Probably depends on the year of the manual, but both 147 & 156 manuals I've just checked have just 5W40

If the OP opened the manual and looked, I'm sure his would say 5W40 too.

Cheers guys, much appreciated!

David C - Car didn't come with the manual otherwise that would have been the first place I'd look.

My manual gives the choice next to a temperature scale with a fading arrow. 10w40 is recommended for temperatures down to approximately -5 degrees C.
Anyway just remember not to mix grades when topping up.
