    Astra questions

    my car seems to be using lots of oil, i got the car in the middle of jan and i have almost put 5 litres of oil in since then, which seems alot

    i do about 800-1000miles a month (one month i drove to wales and back in a day + my normal miles so i did about 1500miles then)

    ive got a 1999 astra mk4 sri 2.0 litre

    also i was going to get my car serviced, anyone know a rough price?, what will they actually do in a service, ive got air-condo they play with that ?, will they attemp to sort my oil problem ?, think i have a nail in my rear tyre as well ?

    cheers

    Hey mate

    I asked a simliar question the other day. Here's the link:
    http://www.m1gst.com/vb/showthread.php?t=60512

    I bought my 1.6 16v SXI in january and since then i seemed to have used up a full load of oil. i think i've probably done around 1000-2000 miles in that time.

    Not sure about the service either sorry mate i should have mine in for one soon too!

    If you do 800-1000 per month (3 months) + 1500 to Wales and back.
    That's 4500 miles. Unfortunately Vx say that 1litre per 1000 is 'normal'. We all know it isn't, but all Astra's are the same!!

    My 1.6 16 'G' never used much oil - so not all astras are the same.
    Seems to be luck of the draw.

    Price for a servie, they vary, as does the content of the service....
    You have not mention which service it is
    Best to phone around...even different Vxl dealers can have different prices.
    Also if you're concerned about money side..you can always get it serviced at another garage, you can specify vxl parts if it's still in warranty, and the vehicle should still be covered.

    They won't change your tyre at the service, they would only advise you about it (if they're good enough to spot it ! )

    Yeah sorry COO, a lot of people on here have had this problem.

    I am one of the lucky few - don't get condensation in lights, and have gone 8,000 miles since last oil change and not had to add a drop.

    £50 says I something really bad happens to me tomorrow.
