I have owned 6 cars since passing my driving test in 1996. All of them were petrol engines. This is my first diesel.The one thing i always knew about diesels was to not turn engine over till the glow plug warning light went out.I have recently read on these boards that with this 1.6tdci 06 model i have now you can turn engine over straight away unless of course its below a certain temp outside(minus 1c i believe).
Can anyone shed light on what else would be useful to know about diesels. These particulate filter thingy's sound scary to me and expensive.
My uncle owned diesels all his life and told me his engines never burnt oil. That sounds great to me as with the petrol engines i was forever topping up the oil.
Advice and views welcome from anyone Ta.
