Done a Turbo? 3.0 CRD

Hey there

Well after a recent return to the dealer with what i thought was belt squeal i have been informed that my 2013 3.0 turbo bearing are failing and a replacement turbo has been ordered.

I'm at a loss how this would have happened as i am most cautious with the turbo i.e: few minutes of idle at warm up and very gentle on the throttle until at operating temp and a few minutes of idle before turning off.

So has anyone else had turbo problems on their CRD Grands?

First one I've heard of. Who services the vehicle and what oil do they use?

I looked up the specifications on this oil and it is non synthetic.

My dealer uses the same oil (i supply my own) and i wonder if this is the problem of the DPF problems.

My my14 is June manufacture and i havn't had any dpf problems.

Re: Done a Turbo? 3.0 CRD

This is a "workshop special oil designed to enhance workshop profits"in my opinion and is unavailable to the public i believe.
I had a 9 year stint running my own workshops and we used to pay $200 a 200ltr drum for our oil.Better oil was available if you paid more.

Re: Done a Turbo? 3.0 CRD

Caltex OEX professional 5W30 is fine. Doubt that it is an oil issue.

Horse, how many KM's have you done ?
Not good to hear of this problem, but it is the first I have read about.

Hi Swampy

I am sure that Castrol 5.30 oex is a premium grade oil but where on there specifications do they state that it is a synthetic oil and would you knowingly put a non synthetic oil in your $35+ Jeep motor?These type of oils may be all right for smoke bellowing Rice Burner type motors but the Jeep is Euro 5+(or at least the MY14 is)

If someone can point out to me that Castrol have made a misprint in there specifications i would appreciate that.
Castrol Australia - EDGE Professional Range

As a footnote i would like to mention that when i bought my Jeep in July i went down the oil path and one of my phone calls was to the state rep for Castrol.This was before anyone had DPF problems.
Nice guy and we talked a long time about oils and i expressed my concern at getting the right oil regardless of cost for my MY14 which i mentioned was Euro 5+ and CRD turbo with DPF.

The recommended oil was Castrol Edge Titanium.

I went down to the local auto shop and grabbed a container.
Guess what was on the label in big bold letters?

THIS OIL IS NOT SUITABLE FOR ENGINES WITH DPF.

"oils ain't oils' You tred your own path with oils.Do your research.
