The 1.9DCi problems are on the whole due to the extended oil changes and incorrect oil type.. ie 10w40 (semi synthetic) being used instead of 5w40 (fully sythetic).... Especially on the Laguna II..
WebCode What are 2 "OTS"'s and where can they be found?
Also is there anyway I can find out if mine is likely to have any issues?
