If your bearings get to where they're looking like the ones in the picture, you'll see a LOT more copper and lead in your oil analysis.

New bearings cost $500 usd for this engine? Does that include installation labor? That seems really high for parts alone.

The bearings are not hard to change so long as the oil pan can be removed easily, i.e., there are not major subassemblies in the way such as driveshafts or such. (I had an Acura/Honda Legend once and the driveshafts went through the oil pan!)

Brons2.

Yes the price is hight, but real and includes installation labor.

Which materials are composed the shells?

Many thanks.

The soft material on the inside of the bearing shell is lead and copper, if it's a tri-metal bearing, which yours appear to be.

Some engines, especially in Fords, now use bi-metal bearings with aluminum being the main ingredient in the bearing surface.

I owned Renault Megane Coupe 1.5 DCI back in Europe for 4 years. It's also 105 hp version (non-dpf) probably the same engine and they're reliable. I wouldn't worry about the lead and silicon.

As far as i know, the recommended viscosity for 1.5 dci engines are ACEA C3 xw-40 with RN07XX approval. You can also try 0w40 or 5w40 next time.

I used Mobil 1 0w40 for more than 80000 kms and my OCI was 10000 kms. I'd recommend you to stick with 10k km OCI.

I thing you need to change the air filter much often, high silicon levels

Hi there.

I've requested a third engine oil anaisys and I need some help to interpretate it based in the topic domain.

I've changed the oil brand.



Many thanks.

Jorge, all is well in your latest report. The new oil seems to be a good match for your engine. The iron level continues to come down and now compares favorably to the universal averages. The number of kilometers you ran is similar to the kilometers used in the universal averages so it's a fair comparison.

The silicon level is much better in the latest report, that is gpod news. The viscosity is very healthy (even with a trace of fuel mixed in) and the insolubles (soot) are low.

I know that in the past, you have expressed concern for the bearings. At this time, they seem to be fine as they are showing consistent wear rates on par with the averages. Other than removing the bearings for inspection, that is the best you have to go with.

It appears that your engine is doing fine and the oil was in great condition.

You went with a full saps oil now (A3/B4 rated?) vs a C3 or C2 oil before?
