    Default 1.8sri Oil Change

    Hi guys, I'm planning on doing an oil change on my 57 plate 1.8 sri with the vvti engine but have a couple of questions as there isn't a how2 I can find on here. Is the oil filter housing on the front passenger side of the engine? With the big nut lol, also what size socket do I need if that is it? I'm asking this cos I'm on my way to halfords to get the oil (Castrol Magnatex 5w30) Also just to confirm its 4.25 litres of oil.
    Sorry for complete noob questions, I will grab the Haynes manual when I'm there which will give me any other answers I need but I dont wanna make 2 trips
    Many thanks, Martyn

    yes your right about the oil filter position its easy the new filter should come with a new seal and i think its 5 litres of oil mate , the socket size is around 24mm you will have one in your socket set , and the sump plug is a T45 torx socket and it has a small rubber 0 ring in it , if its cracked or perished there cheap to buy , i got my oil of ebay proper vauxhall Dexos 2 , i got 2 tubs and it worked out at £23 a tub delivered , that stuff your going to get from halfords is expensive .

    Thanks for your replies guys, I didn't get a chance to grab the socket yesterday but will today. And after reading the manual found out its 4.25 litres for the Z18XE and 4.5 for the Z18XER, the only engine that takes 5 litres is the Z22YH. I'm gonna try to put a link on for the Vauxhall owners manual incase anyone wants it
