    Question Change of oil necessary at higher mileage 2.2 direct? Petrol

    Hi all, wondering if it's worth changing the oil grade at next service as my vectra is now on about 93k? I'm sure at the last service it was 0-30 used might be wrong though. I'm getting it changed every 10k also

    Depends does it burn any oil?

    If not id leave it alone and carry on if it is burning take it up a step thicker.

    You don't want to go too thick or you end up with the problem i inherited (only found out AFTER i bought the damn thing)
    Use too thick an oil and it blocks the oil feeder for the timing chains, dont get properly lubricated and stretch or worse snap
    Cost me nearly £900 to get replaced

    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Default

    Ive been using vx 10/40 semi in mine for 6 yrs. Changed every 5k now on
    102k.

    Not caused any problems. And when vx did service mine in the 1st 3 years they too used 10/40 semi.

    Cant see a problem with using it over 5w/ 30

    As above, GM-LL specification
    If you want to downgrade to 10W40 synthetic oil, then reduce the oil change intervals to 10K miles / 1 year

    My car is on 125K miles and still following the original GM-LL specification
