Hi guys, hope i get an answer to this one...<p>What is the best engine oil to use in the 2.0D /D4204T/ engine, i know the recommended oil is the 5W30 ACEA A1/B1 Ford WSS-M2C913-B, but those are all semisynthetic oils, i'm searching for a fullysynthetic oil that can be used in this common rail engine. <p>Any suggestions? pleeeeeease!

My local Volvo shop used Mobil 1 0w30 in my V50 2.0D.<p><A HREF="http://www.mobiloil.com/USA-English/MotorOil/Oils/Mobil_1_0W-30.aspx" TARGET="_blank">http://www.mobiloil.com/USA-En....aspx</A>

Re: 2.0D engine oil (dali)

Thanks, but it's not that cold here where i live so a 0W30 for me would be an overkill, i would prefer 5W30 but can't seem to find a fullysynthetic one.<p>Castrol has a A1/A5 B1/B5 5W30 oil named SLX professional C1 but it's not sold here, or is but hard to find, so i was interested in finding out what others are using... <p>But thanks again for answering, Tack så mycket!<p><br>

What's the Compression of Your Diesel Eng. ? <p>Diesel Trucks are 18:1 or 20:1 - Isn't the Diesel Volvo like 15:1 ------ ?<p>Check what they put into a Modern Diesel Caterpillar. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 2.0D engine oil (EngTech)

Hi, <p>Compression ratio is 18.5:1 <p>The catch is that it's a common rail Ford/PSA engine "code DW10" that requires a low HTHS "High Temperature High Shear" value of 2.9-3.5, that's why ACEA A3/B3/B4 oils can't be used becuase they all have HTHS >3.5<p>
