Mm!you arent using bio?then you must be a city driver !your ll need thinner oil .5w40 oil are great oil anytime but when cold.if you do a lot of start and stop city driving .might want to switch to a blend like a 10w30 for big truck .if money isnt an issue you could try shell rotella t6 0w40 or mobil delvac1 le5w30 (all the one i mentionned are all big truck oil).no it doesnt have to be exactly those,they re just a reference for comparision .

Try the OEM air filter, if you are using other brand, and shorten the OCI to see if the numbers go down a bit.

FWIW, I can confirm what was said about the directives being followed by the Portuguese branch of Renault, and I donīt take too serious what the auto magazines try to sell us, but thatīs another issue.

Hi Blasar.

The air filter is almost new, and it's clean.

Thanks.

If the air filter is OK and is the OEM recommended, and all the intake system is pristine, maybe shortening the OCI does do the trick, but is just a guess.

Hi Blasar

Can you please be more specific about:

"shortening the OCI"

Thanks.

Does yor car have DPF? If not i would use Selenia WR 5w40 in this Megane. It's one of the best common rail engine oil for cars without DPF. And shorten your OCI to 10 k km or 1 year if you are doing alot of short trips. And you really don't need 5w30 in your hot/ moderate climate.

Hi chrisri.

What is DPF?

My car uses Castrol Edge 5W40 not 5W30.

Thanks.

DPF= diesel particulate filter,an emission nonsense,but you probably don't have any in your Megane since you are using Edge 5w40. Some others recommended 5w30 oils and this is why i mention that grade.Stick with Castrol but keep your oil change interval under 10000 km.

yvon_la,
You Know now, In Portugal Renault recommends changing the big end bearing on 1.5dci (Renault, Nissan and Dacia) between 100 and 150k!

If you google it, chectk on foruns or contact Renault stands it's easy to find.

I aint saying the bearing isnt an issue ,but usually oil pressure is the culprit.side note stuff like twin cam and variable ....is fairly new on the diesel world wouldnt surprise me if pressure of oil need to be 5 or 10 psi higher then it used too

Thanks.
