Default What engine oil is recomended for sedona

Hi I have recently noticed that my Kia Sedona 2.9crdi 06 plate (old model) is quite noisy especially in the morning. Im going to give it an oil change but cant understand the correct oil I should use. I dont mind paying the price so long as it gets the protection it needs. Im a normal driver normal conditions etc, clock up around 60 miles per day around 250 a week. Any sugestions would be appreciated thanks

Craig, most diesels are 'noisey in the morning' , its just the fuel timing while the engine is warming up. If its got more noisey than you are accustomed to then its not likely to be oil, its more likely a fuel system fault.

If you describe the noise better you might get some better feedback on potential problems.

PS I use MILLERS XFD full synthetic oil every 10K. Its less about the engine and more about circulating oil to/fro the turbo.

It mostly has to do with the temperatures in your area. When it never reaches freezing, I would go with a 10W-40 Shell Rotella oil, that oil is made specifically for diesels. When the temperatures in your area are freezing, I'd go with a 10W-30 weight, not sure if theres a diesel oil in that weight but I'm sure theres a racing oil in that weight, which is quite similar in terms of composition and additives.

Hi guys thanks for the help, I think you are right about the noisey engine in the morning it is perfectly normal. I last did an oil change 5 k ago and am planning on changing it before the weather turns a bot clolder, UK that is. Last oil I put in was Millers fully synthetic 5w40. API SL, CF, ACEA A3, B8. No idea what that bit means but thats the oil I used. Also Im having trouble qwith engaging 1st and 3rd and when I let out the clutch its almost inpossible to do so without the car juddering like a kangaroo any ideas about that. Thanks for the speedy responce

Default Engine oil.

Hello There,
The Handbook with the car recomends 10w-30 B4 and it is either very hard to find or costly fully synthetic stuff.
The last time i changed mine i bought some texaco havoline 10w-40 semi synthetic, it is a B4 rated oil ( suitable for diesels , long service between changes) Texaco oils are available at Morrisons Petrol stations.
I had the same issues as yourself with two different Kia dealers recommending two different grades and types; Comma and castrol cannot agree on what grade is their first choice application for the car. As for the best oil maybe Mobil 1 but fully synthetic 10w-30 Mobil 1 will cost you a packet.

There is a lot of info on the net about ACEA specs. Personally if the Kia Dealer in Inverness says 10w-40 semi synthetic is fine i would just stick it in.

The Millers oil you mention will be superior to the semi synthetic i am sure; but is it worth the extra money. How much does six or seven litres cost?

If you were to change your oil on a regular basis with a quality filter and a quality semi synthetic oil would it make any difference to the car in the long term in comparison to running it from new with an expensive oil??????

Maybe after 200,000 Miles the engine run on fully synthetic oil would be less worn but by that time the rest of the car will be knackered.

I have read this thread and am still a bit confused. My 2001 diesel 2.9 Sedonna manual says use 10w30 oil but it seems hard to find. I am at the stage where I am doing my own servicing every other one now due to the age of the car and cost and wonder what oil to use this time. I do less than 10K miles per year at present and don't drive the car hard. It has done nearly 90K miles now. Could I just go for your bog standard Tesco/Asda 10w40 or what should I go for?

The first thing to do is make sure the oil is suitable for diesels and ensure you are within grades.
When selecting oil ensure that it is suitable by checking the codes on the bottle, look for ACEA B3 or B4 or it may be written as A3/B3 etc. The B is the important bit its for diesel applications.
For common rail CRDi engines the code is B4 and 10w30 grade is recomended.
(10w30 for some strange unknown reason is a rare and expensive oil to get easily around here )
Do you have a CRDi engine?? I dont know the code B3, B4 etc for a 2001 engine. ACEA have changed codes several times since 2001 . What does your manual say??

By all means check out tesco, Asda, Morrisons and their petrol stations for oils, coolant, brake fluid etc. etc. 10k miles ago i bought all my service liquids from morrisons because my local motor factors was much more expensive.

Personally 10w40 B? semi synthetic is fine. I recomend texaco havoline 10w40 part synthetic to B3 and B4 spec. It is also suitable for petrol engines too so handy if you own a petrol as your other car.
My own service is due soon and i am looking around for parts once again. I dont find the service parts expensive for the kia, oh! the benefits of internet shopping.
