    Price for Oil & Filter Change

    Just been to local dealers for a price on an oil + filter change on my 1.9 CDTI, and they quoted £102. I'm thinkin this is a little expensive. How much has anyone else been charged?, or is it straight forward to do yourself?

    Follow jam On Twitter
    Oil £15
    Filter £12

    I always do my own filter changes. I don't think the 17 year old apprentices at Vauxhall would look after my car the way I do. Although a Vauxhall stamp in the service book always looks nice come sales time.

    DIY is the way top go for a oil change its dead easy to do

    warm the engine up, remove the oil filler cap remove the sump plug, wait till the oil is out then remove the drivers side front wheel, whip off the oil filter, prime the new filter and oil the ring and place on, new gasket on sump plug then put it back in, lower car with wheel on then fill up oil.
