    Default Any Vauxhall techs here

    Recently got an 07 vauxhall combo, has been a good little van, but the other bay the oil light came on. I pulled over and checked under the bonnet to see the expansion bottle full of engine oil.
    A number of people have suggested that the oil cooler has gone but looking at it, it looks new
    Any suggestions

    Ps its a 1.3 cdti if it makes any difference

    Thanks

    Nope, no mayo in cap, no overheating, just an expansion bottle full of black engine oil

    Not sure on the Z13DT,s, but on the Z19DT,s & DTH,s on the early one,s the "silicone lip seal" within the oil cooler would fail. This would cause cross contamination of engine coolant and engine lubricant, we would change under warranty the complete oil cooler....
