    Default Oil Change on CDTI

    Did an oil change on my SRI 150 CDTi yesterday...what an absolute pain in the ar$e.

    Getting to the oil filter was a nightmare, getting a grip on the thing was impossible, getting the undertray to stay back in place was a joke......it was the most difficult thing I have ever done on a car.

    Never again.....

    hat off to you though for doing it yourself..serious respect, when others would have just cried 'foul' and took it to the garage.. trust me, they get easier to do...

    glad u think so mate, I'm not looking forward to doing the CDTi again lol. now the 2.2Dti is a different kettle of fish mind you.. Although that sucker does need a 36mm socket for the oil filter housing..

    because if it's a cdti with a particle filter you have to use a specific type of oil, the 'kwik fit special' just won't do....

    they're getting wise to this now, so watch them back out of it..

    Nah, get down to National Tyres, but you'll have to be "Kwik"!
    £20 but get a quote first
    You might want to ask for "Fully Synthetic" oil

    I asked about them doing my 3.0 V6 CDTI and was quoted £65 using BP / Castrol Visco 7000

    National Tyres is up for sale, and is likely to be bought by Kwik-Fit
    It could see more branch closures and some price changes...

    Try an oil change on a 2.0DTi. When it's crammed into the front of a Mk4 Astra.

    You actually have to remove the electrical cable off the EGR to get the oil filter out, and getting the sump plug out means fighting with the nice warm exhaust downpipe and the front ARB.
