Oil colour after oil change - what can I expect?


Recommended Posts

Aimed at Focus 4 diesel owners, hopefully this is not as daft a question as it sounds.

Now on all my petrol cars, after an oil change the oil looked clean for several thousand miles (so clean in one case its difficult to see it on the dipstick!)

On my previous diesel (A skoda) the oil looked dirty very quickly, even just a few miles after being changed - I discovered this aas because on the engine there's always a litre of oil left in after draining, by whatever method.

So - the Focus having gone in for a service this morning, what can I expect to see when I check the dipstick? Gold, brown, or black oil?
