Hey,

I'm trying to work out what oil is required in my car.

It's a Citroen C3 1.4 16v 2009 exclusive. I checked Halfords online but it never comes up with any options for this particular car.

Thanks for the help - oh and if you know anything about any of the other fluids as well that would be awesome haha!

Hello

The oil used in the petrol engines of 2009 is this Total 7000

If you need to top up, you may find an oil change is due and you will also need a filter. For that you need to supply a lot more information about the car.

Coolant change would need this OAT pink coolant don't mix colours, so a full drain down may be required.

You should only need screenwash as a fluid to add, this sonax concentrate on Amazon is very good, a little goes a very long way.

Hi

Which engine you have.

Possibly from Registration plate, by VIN number or a photo of your car's engine with the bonnet open.

A photo of the car showing the front would also help because I am still not 100% that it is an A51 model :)

You can find out how to attach photos to the forum in the link.
