    Default What oil and where's the filter?

    Think it's about time I did the oil and filter on my Veccy, although the 'insp' light isn't on the oil has been in there for about 13k and I don't think that's good for any engine!

    Soo, first question is where is the oil filter, 2nd what do you guys reccomend oil wise, I do alot of miles and don't wanna put Asda's smart price stuff in there!

    When removing the filter you'll notice a bit of metal that pokes out the block just under the filter

    put a bit hose on that then unscrew the lid of the filter housing a small bit

    the oil should run down the hose instead of all over the exhaust

    Modern synthetic oils can cope with higher milages between services. In fact the oil change interval on your 1.9 oil burner is 20,000 miles / 12 months.

    Vauxhall recommend 5w/30 fully synth long life for all the Vectra-C & Signum range of engines.
