Re: How do i know they changed oil at service?

Fresh oil in diesel will dirty very quicly, by the time I have started the engine and checked the oil level it looks dirty as long as it has no particules in it I would say its been changed. look for tell tale signs round the sump plug, it may well be clean round it or a smear of oil suggesting it may well have been done.

Have you had any reason to doubt this carage before?
