Smile Scenic 1.5dci

Hello, I am buying a used Scenic 1.5dci 2004. Could someone please tell me what potential problems to look for and do these cars have any weaknesses apart from poor dash board electrics. I would also like to know which engine oil to use.
Many thanks

Re: Scenic 1.5dci

The 1.5 Dci engines are notorious for sticking piston rings and failing turbos.

Make sure you insist on watching the exhaust tail pipe for signs of blue smoke during both a cold and warm start-up. Also give it a good thrashing with someone folowing you - get them to look for signs of blue or black smoke.
