Citroen DS3 Engine Oil Finder

The DS 3 is a rare sight on UK roads. On the one hand, this is made clear by the fact that he is simply rarely represented and, on the other hand, by how much he stands out from the crowd if you should see one.

The DS 3 Crossback is just as young as the brand history of DS, which has been detached from the parent company Citroen since 2014 as an independent car company. Actually even a bit younger, because the crossover SUV has only existed since 2018.

Previously, DS only existed as a premium product line within Citroen. But the abbreviation is well known. After all, it harks back to the famous 1955 Citroen DS model – a luxurious and innovative sedan at the time.

Today, that luxury mainly comes in SUV form like the DS 3 Crossback or the larger DS 7 Crossback. They are already characterized on the outside by an extroverted look with futuristic shapes and continue this in the interior. Whether in the form of the unusual window line on the outside or the diamond-shaped control elements on the inside, there are small details everywhere that inevitably draw the attention of passers-by.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Citroen DS3's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Citroen DS3 engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Citroen DS3? Whether you are topping up your Citroen DS3 oil or doing a full change of your Citroen DS3's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
