    Default Oil Change 2.0 Turbo

    I have just done an oil and filter change on my 2.0 Vec C Turbo using 10W X 40 Semi Synthetic from Vauxhall today. My girlfriend went down with my vin numbers and they gave her this oil, they also gave her the rubber ring for the sump plug, but that was the wrong kind. Is this the correct oil for my car? It's in now and so is the new filter. I just left the old sump washer on. Cheers

    Would've used 5w-30 TBH mate, but what's in will do, but it'll need changed sooner. Sure someone will advise

    I thought it was strange as I asked my girlfriend to get some oil for her car also and she came back with both tubs the same. I thought Turbo oil might be a bit different, then again Vauxhall should have known whats best for the car? Cheers

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    As 10W-40 oil is semi-synthetic, it will degrade more quickly than the recommended fully synthetic 5W-30 and will have a shorter useful life. 10W-40 would do for the time being, but perhaps you should consider changing it sooner than you otherwise would, for example if you were planning to change it in one year or 10,000 miles then perhaps do so in say 6 months or 5000 miles. Does anyone else have a view on this?

    I will change it again in about a few weeks. I had a look through the service history from Vauxhall and they also used 10W-40 when doing the oil change on my car. Cheers

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    my local dealership told me to use 5w-30 fully synthetic so did another place i had checked before hand. I had also read on here that 5w-30 was the correct oil... I normally change my oil every 6 - 7k anyway, to some this would be to soon but its a habit now and it does the engine no harm...
