Default Peugeot XDP oil change interval

What is the interval for changing oil for Peugeot XDP engines ? I changed the engine oil recently and the engine has clocked 1.5K km since then. Oil seems to be saturated and even the amount of oil has decreased. I suspect rings, but bad rings, but need to check that. There is also oil leaking from the engine. I should get the crank case packing also checked. Anything else you guys suspect ?

Please tell about - Smoke, how much oil is being consumed, change in noise, vibration etc. That will help to diagnose / comment with a better understanding. Is the whole oil being lost into open (leaks) or it is disappearing within the engine?

I would also like to add / ask one question about this engine --

What is the normal oil consumption figure -per 1000 Km. for this engine ?


AFAIK -the 2112 cc Peugeot has a recommended ( Max ) figure of 1.5 lit / 1000 Km . does this fall near to this engine also ?

Kindly also mention if there is back pressure. Please check for all the above points as they are indicators of how unhealthy the engine is.

Smoke, noise and vibration seems to be normal. I got the oil changed when the engine had previously clocked around 3.5K km. After this oil change the engine has clocked only around 1.5K. There were leaks earlier and I got the crank case packing changed. There still seems to be some leaks.

There seems to be no back pressure. I removed the dip stick and started the engine. No oil was thrown out.

My new 2.5L Bolero engine hardly drinks any oil at all. And the older 2.1L never required 1.5L / 1000 kms for the first 100,000 kms of its life. Sure, consumption went up with age, yet I never remember it being to the tune of 1.5L / 1000 kms (that's rather high IMHO). I think it was more like 500 ml / 1000 kms.

We sold our bolero with 1.75L Kms on Odo,and it was the one with XD3P engine,and it never consumed any oil,and 1.75L was done without any kind of repairs to engine block\piston and all.
We used to change oil every 5-6K kms.
