Default A new worry

I just changed the oil in the PT 2001 Limited with Mobil 1 5/30 and filter. I just read the fine print on the oil. It is Mobil 1 5/30--ESP formula. Made I guess for Diesel filters, should it come out? I just paid 48.95 at $1.68 a pound, plus VAT tax. (Govt needs money) Now what, don't need a problem later. Andy

No worries. The ratings for oil were always tougher for diesel engines.

Andy, the PT is a good dependable car. Don't be looking for trouble with every little "glitch" or Hiccup" that you hear. As long as you take care of any preventative maintenance you should have NO problems.
