I just purchased a very nice Y plate Astra SRI 2.2 with 80k from new and only 2 owners.
Its time for a service and I don't know whether to take it to Vauxhall......but as the car was fairly cheap I don't want to pay a fortune on service when I could get mechanic friend to do it.....but i guess I should keep up the FVSH (7 stamps). Like £150-£200 quid max on a service....
Also what is the best engine oil to use....Vauxhall recommend 5w30 but I hear using better oil like 0w40 is essential to ensure my timing chain doesn't snap in the future.
Any advise is most welcome.....silly me thought timing chain that's good news....but now I think maybe I should have gone with the 2.0.
Finally is the only way to turn off the service indictaor on dash to go to a vauxhall dealer.
