    Smile Service Intervals

    I have an '07 CDTi SRi 120 - today I had it in for a service - the mileage is coming up to 48k.

    I took it to a good vauxhall specialist - the invoice says the motor is filled with long life oil - fully syn 5/30W.

    Normally I am not a fan of these long life oils, I would sooner use a cheaper oil and change it more regularly.

    What are the service intervals? How long does this oil last?
    My idea being to have the car serviced annually with me changing the oil in between.

    As the car is only just five years old and has a stamped book I felt compelled to have the work done at a garage - normally I try to do everything myself - it was painful having to hand over the wedge!

    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Default

    The service interval is every year, but there is nothing to stop you changing the oil yourself half way through the year.

    5w /30 fully synt is the correct oil, but dosnt mean its in there for 3 years.
