    Default oil& filter change 1.9 cdti (120) vectra est '05

    Good evening all, I run a '05 vectra estate 1.9 cdti (120) and have it serviced annually at my local garage at a cost of £170... I have since covered 12k and thought I would have an intermediate oil change as I'm a little uneasy at the thought of going 20k between oil changes, I called my local vx dealer in Worksop,Notts, and they had to ring me back with a price to simply change the engine oil and filter....£87.60! Is this unreasonable, and what should I expect my local garage to charge?
    Also, where is the oil filter on this model...........do I have to undo the covers underneath to access it? help please.

    Hi,
    The oil filter, which is a paper cartridge, is located at the centre/rear of the engine and is only accessible from underneath.
    You will need to remove the undertray to gain access to the filter and sump plug. The sump plug requires a Torx drive. The oil filter housing is plastic and requires a large socket to undo, 36mm if I remember. Ensure you also get the seals. Also a good idea to get a new seal for the sump plug. Torque settings :Sump plug 20Nm Oil filter housing 15Nm. You will need 4.3 litres of 5W30 ACEA A3 / B3 for a standard change or GM-LL-A-025, GM-LL-B-025 for the longer service interval.

    Like what lesJ said. Also might be worth getting a new sump plug; they can round very easiliy. Sods law says if you dont get a new plug, you'll need one!

    You can get cheap (genuine vauxhall) oil form Autovaux - £20ish as opposed to the £40+ the dealer will charege you. A big saving. Bonus

    DO NOT USE ANYTHING OTHER THAT FULLY SYNTHIC FOR ENGINES WITH A DIESEL PARTICULAR FILTER ! no matter how long between service intervals, vx only recomend lower grade oil for non particular models.(smll print in your service booklet).

    You should be able to save money on an oil change by providing your own oil, look up your car here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-861-car-engine-oils.aspx

    You should find a suitable oil and filter service pack.

    Cheers

    You'll need a 32mm socket/spanner for the oil filter cap.
