Re: DOBLO Help (CHANGE OIL WARNING )

If it has a DPF you change the oil when the degredation counter reaches a pre-determined level.

Hi to the FF by the way

Re: DOBLO Help (CHANGE OIL WARNING )

If your car has a diesel particulate filter on the exhaust then you change the oil when it says but car is serviced (minus oil change) as normal.

Re: DOBLO Help (CHANGE OIL WARNING )

The actual interval for changing the oil and replacing the engine oil filter depends on the vehicle usage conditions and is signalled by the warning light or message, if present, in the instrument panel or 12K miles.

Depending on cluster fitted it might need reset.

Does it mention it in the manual?

Thats right Dave,all depends on engine/DPF.

Re: DOBLO Help (CHANGE OIL WARNING )

Drop it in at dealers,let them see it.(let us know how you get on so can clarify it for other doblo owners here)

Cromas are like this...going to confuse owners at service time.Done a 1.3MJ doblo oil change recently at 5 months/6K odd because cluster said so...she mentioned she does lots of stop/start work so oil degraded quicker.

Re: DOBLO Help (CHANGE OIL WARNING )

apparently because my local garage do not have the electronic computer to hook onto the in car computer it cannot reset the service warning and also the oil warning so it assumes the car is in need of an oil change and service so it is a reset issue

Thanks again

Re: DOBLO Help (CHANGE OIL WARNING )

no

Didnt think Fiat offered value for money to be honest
£380 for a full 36 point service

I paid £200 less with genuine FIat Parts

Re: DOBLO Help (CHANGE OIL WARNING )

Hi I am new here and I have this same problem. I bought a new Doblo 1.9 multijet 120 I had several problems mainly concerned with the appalling service from the main dealer I bought it from (now gone) so on it second service took it to a Fiat garage. Not long after, the change oil warning came on. I took it back but he could not remove it I took it to another main dealer they said he put the wrong oil in and showed me the correct one, I took it back to the Fiat garage he said they were wrong and rang Fiat parts who supplied the oil in my car they said the main dealer was wrong because my car has a DPF it must have the very expensive low ash oil that they supplied. So my car was serviced correctly runs fine but noone can remove the change oil warning that comes on about a minute after starting.
This will be my first and last ever Fiat.
Thanks John.

Re: DOBLO Help (CHANGE OIL WARNING )

Difficult to understand exactly what you are saying. So the oil is not the problem, merely a software glitch with the warning light. Why is this such an enormous problem - just get the dealer to sort it when you have the time - it must be fixable? You can read many examples of rogue warning lights for various cars here, and on othe forums too: they are a modern day car reality unfortunatley.

Try buying a VW or Merc!
My friends have a Merc E Class and it now has to have four new dampers and some steering thing fixed - at £1500 - plus various warning lights haven't worked for years (they want a fortune for a new dash panel), and it has to go in for the second time to have rusting dealt with. It is a 2002 and has done 60,000 miles. I can't tell you how much has gone wrong with it, and it has broken down twice. So perhaps Fiats aren't so bad after all
