My engine was changed by the PO because of sludge leading to oil
starvation and seizure.  They changed everything that had contact with
oil: engine, turbo, oil lines, cooler (altogether about three pages of
parts).  The car was 100% serviced by the dealer and had all its oil
changes (every 10000 km) with Castrol Syntec.....

I am now using 0W40 Mobil 1 and the diesel filter....but am still nervous.

Good luck with yours.
