Re: engine oil spec punto 1.4 8v 2012 with stop start

First of all, Hello

You can find these informations in your handbook. If you don't have it (or like me, don't want to go to your car when you are behind your PC ) you can dowload it at :
http://aftersales.fiat.com/elum/

For your car (same engine as mine), engine oil is 5W40 ACEA C3

Newer (euro 5 rated) GP's use

SAE 5W-40 ACEA C3 synthetic oil to FIAT 9.55535-S2 certification. (PETROL)

SAE 5W-30 synthetic oil. to FIAT 9.55535-S1 certification (DIESEL)

For diesel engines, in the event of an emergency in which the original products are not available, lubricants with at least ACEA C2 performance are acceptable; however, in this case optimum engine performances are not guaranteed and the lubricants should be replaced with recommended products as soon as possible at a Fiat Dealership.

The use of products with specifications lower than ACEA C3 and ACEA C2 could cause engine damage not covered under warranty




Since its a bank holiday your probably stuck with halfords

Look for Castrol edge fst. It says diesel on the bottle but matches fiat spec

I have recently purchased Castrol edge from Amazon with next day delivery for 29 for 4 litres. Halfords are about 48. Have a look
