    Default V6 Cdti Oil Change

    went to vauxhall today and picked up all the gear for an oil change and done it
    got everything through the trade club thank god

    £55 all in didn't think that was to bad considering people are quoting silly money for the oil filter alone.
    but had to go back for more oil

    Not entirely agreeing there.

    The very best thing you can do for your engine is to use it - alot. Get it warm and keep it warm, and second to that do oil changes when required.

    Not saying it wasn't needed. Diesel lube oil is always black. The new oil will be black within 1000 miles, as it holds carbon in a dispersed suspension - which it is supposed to do.
