Hey folks me again!!!
I have a prob and the story goes like this.
I got a little oil leak a few weeks back when I was onshore so I changed my oil, filter etc and done a full service while I was there including boost controllers. Anyway...
I went into one car store, read up the books etc and the only oil listed was 0W-10 fully synthetic(Mobil eco or something like that so bought that) Stuck it in and noticed smoke starting to come out the exhaust on idle and knew something wasnt right. Phoned Vauxhall and they said I should be using 10W-40 half synthetic. So whipped out that oil and stuck in the castrol magnex or whatever you call it, changed my filters again and noticed the same smoke when idling.
I thought to myself it was maybe just the other stuff burning off and it would sort itself out until today (300 miles later) when I noticed the check oil bit on the display coming on. Stopped to check my oil and nadda/zilch/nothing in there. Totally bricked myself!!!
I have heard that they are really picky cars when it comes to types of oil but in no way did I think they were that bad.
Am I using the wrong kind of oil or do I have a REAL BIG problem here!
Your advice and stuff would be greatly appreciated right now!!!
One worried astra owner!
