    Z18XE Engine oil

    Good evening,

    So, I have half a day free tommorow and plan on giving my car a little service, and was wondering what engine oil everyone recommends to be run with this engine, any opinions welcome!

    Also, whilst I'm under the bonnet, is there anything anyone recommends to check over, or maybe strip and clean/adjust?

    Cheers for any help!

    Regards,

    Sam.

    Go for vauxhall's own stuff, either the 10-40 semi synth as said above or the 5-30 fully synth which is the one i use, depends how fussy you are

    Either 10/40 semi (£8 from Vx) or 5/30 (£18 from Vx) Trade prices if u get em.

    Personally I just use 10/40 but entirely upto u.

    Vx used to recommend 10/40 but recently changed their service recommendations to the fully synth 5w/30 instead.

    I'd also be checking/changing all the usual fluids/filters and plugs if they aint been serviced already
