Frequently asked questions about Citroen engine oil change & replacements

Read our answers to questions about engine oil change costs, symptoms and more.

What does an engine oil change on my Citroen involve?

  • The mechanic will raise the vehicle and ensure that the surrounding area is protected against any spillage
  • The mechanic will drain the oil and change the oil filter
  • Mechanic will then refill the engine with the correct grade and quantity of quality oil
  • Mechanic will run the engine and once cool, will re check the level
  • Any dashboard based oil service and quality warnings will be reset to indicate the oil service has been performed

What are the symptoms of bad Citroen engine oil?

Fundamentally, unless it has gone too far, the average motorist is unlikely to know there is something wrong physically with it.

There may be an oil pressure warning on the dashboard that could indicate the oil isn’t circulating as well as it should due to a blocking filter or even a failing oil pump or there may be an oil level warning, which would indicate there isn’t enough oil in the engine. However both of these warnings are not really an indicator of the actual oil quality but can alert you to potential issues.
Therefore typical symptoms are;

  • Engine oil level warning
  • Engine oil pressure warning
  • Service indicator lights
  • Oil quality warning light

How long will an engine oil change take on my Citroen?

An engine oil change usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace the engine oil in my Citroen ?

As oil heats up and cools down, carbonisation occurs, which is why oil turns a dark black colour. The more this occurs and the more its chemical structure is mashed during the friction process, the oil quality will fall away until it not longer provides the purpose it is used for,

This is why the manufacturers have recommended oil change frequencies, however, it is not the full story. There is also the time recommendation as well, but this is to try and ensure that regular changes are made. An engine that is used in a vehicle that sits in stationary traffic the majority of its time, but doesn’t accumulate high mileages, is still going to be running and that is of course what reduces the properties.

Should I change Citroen engine oil every 10,000 miles?

Most auto manufacturers recommend changing engine oil every 5000-7000 miles. However, keep in mind that older cars may need its engine oil changed more frequently. The best thing to do is check the owner's manual for manufacturer recommended oil change frequency.

How long will 15% Oil Life last on my Citroen?

If the manufacturer recommended oil change is recommended every 10,000 miles for example, then 15% would mean you have about 1500 miles to go before you need to change the oil. If it's 5000 miles, then 15% oil life indicator would mean 750 miles left. Remember this is a rough approximation so it's always good to check the engine oil regularly with the dipstick method and not let it do below the "low" mark.

What engine oil is better for my Citroen, synthetic or conventional?

Synthetic oil is generally considered to be more durable. high-performing and efficient than conventional oil, and it is often the recommended choice for newer vehicles.

Unlike conventional oil, fully synthentic oils are also designed to flow quickly in winter conditions and resist extreme heat, which allows the car engine to operate smoothly year-round.

Can I switch from using conventional oil to synthetic oil on my Citroen?

Yes, it is generally safe to switch back and forth from conventional to synthentic oil. However, it is important to remember that synthetic oil is far more superior then conventional oil so once you switch back to conventional oil it will not offer the efficiency the synthetic oil did for your engine.

If you're not sure about switching, you can always consult a mechanic to advise what's best for your vehicle.

Which engine oil is the best for myCitroen?

The best oil recommended for your car will be listed in the owner's manual.

Engine oil comes in different viscosities, and is generally signified by a grade number, such as 5w40. It is important to consult the owner's manual as using the wrong type of oil can cause stress to the mechanical components of the engine that need optimum lubrication.
