I'd imagine 5w-40 and I'd always go with Castrol Edge.

There are a few variants on that engine but I think they all use the same oil.

that will be a PD engine, do not skimp on the ol, make sure its 505. rating is matched to your engine, use shite oil you'll have problems later in life. especially with the turbo

3.8 Litres of 5w/30 is what is needed, if it is a pumpe deuse (pd) engine it is recommended that pd spec oil is used
