    I would get her serviced, just done mine today, the 1.9 are a right pain in the neck to change, I am sure the 2.2 is a bit easier mate.
    If I can do it, anyone can.

    It does seem a bit low but stop start driving & the low temperatures kill mpg but if your getting warning lights on get it into Duerdens

    every time the fault light comes on the ecu throws diesel into the oil to ensure it can limp to the garage. Really does mess your mpg up!!!

    The diesels are such big heavy lumps that in cold weather they can take 20+ minutes to reach full operating temperature & consume extra diesel in the process

    In winter it's hard enough keeping the front wheels of a slightly tweeked BSRi 1.9 spinning at the right speed never mind a 2.8 Turbo, so I think I'll pass
