Hi all,

New Kia owner - I have a Venga 1 Air 1.4 CRDi, UK model, 64 plate, first registered January 2015.

Looking up what engine oil it takes, I get four options from Halfords:
* Crdi W/o Dpf (from 01\2015 onwards)
* Crdi With Dpf (from 01\2010 to 12\2014)
* Crdi W/o Dpf (from 01\2010 to 12\2014)
* Crdi With Dpf (from 01\2015 onwards)


I'm guessing that as it's registered Jan 2015, it's actually a 01\2010 to 12\2014 model? It's certainly pre-makeover which happened in 2015. Is that right?

How can I tell if it has a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)? When I switch the ignition on there's no warning light I can see which might relate to it.

Many thanks for any ideas.

I don't think mine had a DPF warning light. The instantaneous mpg used to drop by about 50% when the re-gen was happening about every 200 miles.


Look in the handbook for the oil.

The Kia DPF does not use oil. It is a dry filter, it burns off the carbon by injecting extra fuel during re-gen.
. Unlike the Peugeot ones)

Okay my brain hurts, just bought a 60 plate venga does it have a dpf? Was going to bulk buy her some oil for a few years of servicing as I've saved so much money not bulk buying bog rolls because I already own a shower.
It's a 1.4 crdi and was thinking castrol magnatec 5w30 wins my favour...
