    Default Oil choice

    I have just bought an 04 reg 2.2 direct Signum with just 25000 miles on it.

    My mate who has an 02 reg vectra 2.2 recons the earlier engines have a problem with oil starvation to the camchain and he was advised to fit fully synth oil in his.

    My Signum was due a service so i decided to give it an oil change
    I have just changed it for Silkolene 5w40 fully synthetic.
    Is this ok?

    Sorry if this info is on here somewhere but i have looked

    This is because VX fitted an nossle which was too small, and got easily blocked.

    And the 2.2 Direct was never effected by that chain oiler problem. Only the plain 2.2 in the late Vectra B and early Vectra C (and some Mk4 Astras).
