I am convinced the 18K service intervals are the cause of turbo failure. Oil is the life blood of the engine and turbo .

My advice to any dCi owner is to change it at least every 10K or 12 months. Webcode, the RTE who often posts here, recommends 6K or 6 months. And use a good quality fully synthetic oil . Amsoil is well regarded.

Interestingly, the Euro4 dCi engines are back to 9K service intervals...
