Renault Captur Engine Oil Finder

The Captur is a compact SUV from the French manufacturer Renault based on the Renault Clio platform. It is offered in four equipment lines and with four different engines, there are no other body variants. However, Renault also offers the SUV as a plug-in hybrid version.

At that time, the Renault Captur was one of the first in the compact SUV class, which is now well populated and continues to boom. With the BMW X1, VW T-Cross, Hyundai Kona & Co., this is now a highly competitive vehicle segment, which is why the new generation of the Renault Captur has to prove itself here in concrete terms. What they all have in common is the raised seating position in combination with compact exterior dimensions, which makes the compact SUV particularly attractive in inner-city areas, contrary to its original purpose of off-road activities.

The second edition of the Captur also has more to offer to the eye with a wider body, wider grill and C-shaped lights at the front and rear. Not from the drive. Unfortunately, what looks like all-wheel drive does not offer any. Nevertheless, the French SUV is a bestseller - around 1.5 million of its predecessors were sold - although this was only available with front-wheel drive. This will hardly bother most drivers who don’t go off-road with an SUV anyway, because for many the elevated seating position with compact exterior dimensions in combination with modern infotainment is much more important.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Renault Captur'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 Renault Captur 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 Renault Captur? Whether you are topping up your Renault Captur oil or doing a full change of your Renault Captur's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
