Peugeot 308 I had to put some oil in a 308 150 THP today.

Resolved Question:

I had to put some oil in a 308 150 THP today. I topped up with a mineral oil as the recommended oil was not in the handbook... but the service manual. Is this going to cause problems or can I just ensure that future top ups are synthetics

Mike :

Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

Mike :

What grade of oil did you use - and how much did you add ?

Customer:

You have my question Any thoughts?

Mike :

hi - yes.. do you see my question above?

Customer:

Used a Total mineral oil (5000 was on the label); added one litre

Mike :

ok - do you know the grade.. ie, 10/40 15 /40 etc etc..?

Customer:

Sorry I can't remember. We were in a rush to make an appointment.

Mike :

Ok.. I have checked that - its a 15/40 grade -- How is the car running?

Customer:

It seems fine

Mike :

ok... in that case.. keep an eye on things - If it starts to misfire - run rough / badly at all - then it will be clogging the valves - that oil grade is too thick basically.... but , if its ok - then do as you said - top up with the proper fully synthetic in future - thats the botXXXXX XXXXXne with this one.

Customer:

Cheers XXXXX XXXXX your help. I won't forget in future. I assume if it runs rough then an oil change will be needed straightaway.

Mike :

Yes thats correct.

Customer:

OK over and out

Mike :
