Seat Alhambra Engine Oil Finder

The Seat Alhambra is a mid-size MPV produced by the Spanish manufacturer Seat. The first generation was introduced in 1995 and produced for an unusually long time until 2010. It was a cooperation between Ford and the VW Group. The car was built in largely identical form as a VW Sharan and as a Ford Galaxy. When switching to the second generation, the cooperation with Ford was not continued. The sister model VW Sharan remained on offer. A new production plant was built in Palmela, Portugal, specifically for production. At the end of the 2010s, many manufacturers removed their MPVs from the range, leaving the Seat Alhambra as one of the last mid-size MPVs with almost no competition on the market.

Seat Alhambra Oil Change Interval

Oil change intervals for the Seat Alhambra range from 5,000 km/1 year to 50,000 km/2 years . As a rule, the interval that applies to a vehicle is already predetermined at the factory. This is then stored with a PR number in the vehicle data carrier. In Germany, the numbers QG1 and QI6 are common. When changing the oil, these stand for the flexible long-life interval, which can be recoded to the fixed interval.

The oil change is one of the most important maintenance jobs for the 2020 Seat Alhambra 2.0 TDi 4Drive Bj as well as for an Alhambra 1.8 T 20V Bj 1997. Because in a combustion engine, an oily lubricating film between the pistons and cylinders ensures that the engine runs as smoothly as possible. Residues and soot particles from the combustion get into the engine oil and thus into the oil circuit via this gap. This is normal and cannot be avoided. Over time, the engine oil in your Seat Alhambra becomes so dirty that it no longer fulfills its protective function and the engine can be damaged.

Seat Alhambra Engine Oil Capacity - How Much Engine Oil Does a Seat Alhambra Need?

In the Seat Alhambra, the various engines differ in their designs and therefore also differ in their specific filling quantities. For example, a Seat Alhambra 2.0 TDI with 103 kW needs 4.0 litres of oil to work reliably. In contrast, the Seat Alhambra 2.0 TSI with 162 kW requires 5.7 litres of engine oil. All engines of the Alhambra series are found within these values.

We have listed all the Seat Alhambra models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for your Seat Alhambra.

The History of the Seat Alhambra

SEAT Alhambra 7N (1st facelift)
For the 2016 model year, the SEAT Alhambra was technically extensively revised. The biggest change was the conversion of the diesel engines from the EA189 series to the new EA288 engine series.

Seat Alhambra 7N
The second generation of the SEAT Alhambra came onto the market in 2010 and was again identical to the VW Sharan. The petrol engines produced between 150 hp in the 1.4 TSI and 220 hp in the 2.0 TSI. The 2.0 TDI diesel engines achieved 115 to 184 hp.

SEAT Alhambra 7M (1st facelift)
During the facelift of the SEAT Alhambra in 2000, the main changes were the headlights and taillights, which gave the car a much more modern appearance.

Seat Alhambra 7M
The first generation of the SEAT Alhambra was largely identical to the VW Sharan I and the first Ford Galaxy. The car was manufactured from 1996 to 2010. In 2000, a more extensive facelift was introduced, which is mainly recognizable in the changed headlights and taillights. The petrol engines made 115 (2.0) to 204 hp (2.8 V6), the diesel engines came up to 90 to 150 hp.

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

Regularly checking and changing your Seat Alhambra 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.
