    Vehicle : Vectra C Sri V6 CDTi

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 3.0 V6 CDTi Z30DT

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 121000

    Default V6 CDTi Engine Oil

    How much would Vauxhall charge for Engine Oil and Oil Filter for my facelift V6 diesel or would I be better going to my local motor factors?

    As a 2005 you can use any synthetic oil

    If you are still following the ECO Flex servicing, 30K miles / 2 years then use GM-LL specification oil
    Costs about £30 for the 8 litres you will require (full retail)

    If you are reducing the oil change intervals / ignoring ECO Flex, then use any synthetic oil

    The filter costs about £20 (full retail)
    However, also change the diesel fuel filter
    As above, the service interval is 30K miles / 2 years, but this is the weak point and really needs to be replaced after 15K miles / 1 year

    Given the costs above, try National Tyres
    Make sure they are using the oil you specify and renew the oil filter

    I was quoted £80 for an oil and filter change by the dealership I use

    Vehicle : Mk1 renault scenic... I know I know but it drives

    Trim : Basic

    Engine : 1.6 16v

    Year : 2003

    Default

    5w30 fully synth oil is expensive, and the 6 needinh 7 and half litres doesnt make it any better.
    vauxhall retail that oil at £54 for 5litres trade club price it drops to about £24

    the trade club price on oil filter from vauxhall is £34 and fule filter is 16.

    a lot of people have swapped to 10w40 and reduced the milage between oil chnages.
    and oil filter cna be had from eurocarparts for saab for about 13 quid.

    so thats cheapest option. unless you can find a dealer doing a good deal.

    i no m8internet seems to get a good deal from his dealership.

    use mobil 1 0w-40 better oil and cheaper (costco or internet).

    Try euro car parts for the filter. Do it yourself, easy and satisfying job.
