    Even regular, mineral oil changed every 5,000kms is fine.

    Our Grandia uses the Toyota full synth oil and Baldwin BT223 oil filter combo.

    After the brake-in period, my engine usually feels much more free after a nice, long drive.

    vinj, experienced ko at proven ko na ito na I see to it na mapatakbo ko ang sasakyan ko (any car) ng full speed (at about 5 mins.) evey month at least once......to removed carbon deposits....at titipid pa siya...tatahimik ang makina.... as you have said...'engine feels much more free...'. you are right! sa change oil.....fully synthetic 15W50 Amlie....evey 10Tklm ang change oil but at 5T change ang oil filter then add a bit oil engine....kasi magbabawas ng oil dala ng oil filter. so far so good. pag 10T klm....change oil...oil filter...at ang fuel filter change ng casa every 10Tklm. my research shows na ang d4d engine ay napaka sensitive na engine....lalo na sa diesel. ang advise....you fill-up diesel gas sa busy palagi na gasoline station para bago palagi ang stocks. ako gamit ko shell v-power nitro diesel.....ibang-iba ang performance.....suwabing-suwabi. nice power.

    tips ko accdg. to study:

    Why do turbochargers fail?
    These are some of the most common causes of turbo failure:
    1. Hard driving immediately on startup - The engine has not built up enough oil pressure to properly lubricate the turbocharger.
    2. Shutting of the engine immediately after driving - The turbo is extremely hot and still spinning with no oil to lubricate the bushings and dissipate the heat.
    3. Lack of oil or dirty oil - Without oil, the entire engine will fail. Dirty oil will carry debris (metal slivers, carbon pieces) into the turbo bushings.
    4. Shrapnel in the manifolds - Pieces of valves, rings, pistons and even coked oil will destroy the turbine and / or compressor wheels when contact is made at high RPM.
    5. Pressurizing the turbocharger - A dirty air filter, clogged catalytic convertor or damaged exhaust system can cause a failure. An internally damaged engine will pressurize, preventing the oil from draining out of the turbocharger.

    Correct turbocharger fitment involves more than following the turbocharger fitting guidelines that are specific and supplied with each turbocharger. When a turbocharger has failed the fault diagnosis does not stop there. Far more important is the reason for failure. Most turbochargers fail for a reason; the most popular cause of failure are oil related problems.

    Other causes such as over boosting, over speeding and foreign object impact damage are all common turbocharger failure causes. Any fault that will prejudice the operation of the turbocharger must be found and rectified before fitment of another turbocharged is carried out.

    A turbocharger is not an independent device unlike other ancillary components on a vehicle, such as a power steering pump for example. It is an intrinsic part of the vehicle's power system. It shares with the engine it's oil supply, water supply, air intake supply, exhaust gas flow, engine management control, various pneumatic devices, ignition and fuel injection devices. Any and all of these have a crucial effect on the operation of the turbocharger. The culmination of these variables can result in a relatively complicated task in accurate turbocharger fault diagnosis. It is for this reason that sufficient time and understanding must be applied to turbocharger fault investigations.

    1 - Before fitting the fitter should be absolutely 100% sure that there is no underlying fault that has caused the turbocharger to fail. If a turbocharger fails it may be the turbocharger - if the replacement fails there is likely to be another problem elsewhere.

    2 - Remove absolutely all traces of contaminated oil, even the smallest particles of debris from the failed unit may immediately destroy the new turbocharger - this is a very common failure reason. If the oil has began to solidify the entire engine may need to be completely degreased and steam cleaned.

    3 - Replace oil supply lines and fittings. These lines often become plugged with decomposed oil which restricts oil flow and drainage.

    4 - Prime oil feed lines and turbocharger bearing chamber - a turbocharger running for 1 second without oil is the equivalent of running an engine without oil for 1 minute. Turn the compressor wheel a few times to distribute the oil.

    5 - Make sure all openings to turbo are open and not plug or capped off - make sure that the air intake hose is fitted correctly, anything sucked into the impeller with destroy the blades. ENSURE THAT NO LOSE DEBRIS IS PRESENT INSIDE THE AIR HOSES! Remove old gasket material from the exhaust manifold, make sure there is no damage to the faces.

    6 - Shut off fuel or disable ignition and crank the engine for at least 15 seconds or until oil pressure is raised.

    7 - Allow engine to fast idle (1,000 RPM) for 3 - 5 minutes to seat turbo seals.

    8 - Always let engine idle for 3 - 5 minutes before shut down, otherwise the turbo will continue to spin without oil lubrication and pressure.

    9 - When changing oil, be sure to prime the newly replaced oil filter.

    10 - Do not used silicone or thread tape

    11 - If fitted with an intercooler, ensure that the unit is not contaminated with oil - this may enter the air intake causing damage to the impeller blades and internal bearings.

    12 - Check engine breather system if present - if blocked the engine may use the turbocharger as a vent and force oil past the internal seals.

    13 - After idling for 3-4 minutes stop the engine and check the oil level, if the oil level is such that the oil returns from the turbo back to the engine from the turbo then it is too high.

    ^ You may want to go with a Baldwin oil filter if you're out of warranty already. This can carry you for 10,000kms without needing to swap filters at 5K, coupled with a good oil.

    Just to add, when you drive often on the highways or hit the redline every now and then, there's really no need for those engine decarboning services which the CASA and some shops offer. I once bought a second hand Innova D4d and the first owner rarely used it; paikot-ikot lang sa city and short distances pa. After changing the oil we took it up north one evening and when i floored the pedal, grabe yung nilabas na usok and carbon. After several weeks I did another change oil and a couple of long trips, and after that even at full throttle and high rpms there wasnt any smoke anymore.

    I'm pretty sure our Grandia will have carbon buildup already as we recently converted it into a wheelchair van for my lolo so it'll be regulated to easy driving duties for the meantime.

    BT223. Used to be around 220 to 300 depending on the seller. Have not bought recently though.
