Hi,

I have just bought a motorhome with a Ford 2.5 diesel engine. I was told that it had been serviced recently but on checking the oil I find it is nearly black, is this normal with a diesel engine or has it as I suspect not had an oil change.

Would appreciate any comments.

Hello Benbow,
Peoples idea of recently varies. If the oil is black change it as it's a cheap insurance.

I have responded to adverts that proclaim "New Engine" but when viewed it was covered in dirt. I queried this and was told "Oh yes it must have been about 20,000 miles ago.

Don't take anything as gospel.

Ray.
