    Question What oil and how much

    It's time to change the motion lotion in my 1.6 8V mk4 astra but I don't think I got the book when I bought the car a year ago.

    Can someone tell me what oil is best and how much it needs from empty? It's done 50k so not a huge mielage on a 9 year old motor :-)

    Thanks

    Welcome to AOC.

    I use Semi synthetic 10w-40 from Vauxhall. Comes in 5litre containers. You won't need it all, so you'll have a bit for top ups.

    IIRC it's around £16.

    You'll need 3.5 litres when u change the filter too

    If you join AOC as a fully paid member u can then take advantage of trade club discount at vauxhall and get the same 5ltr bottles for approx £8 . . . Filter works out at about £1.50

    Hope this helps
