    You put HOW MUCH in? I didnt even know the Astra could take 5 litres. How much was in there before?

    You do know that too much oil is about as bad as too little? From what I gather it all sits in the sump and the pistons smash into it with every revolution, damaging them and frothing the oil up.

    well while ur droppin out the oil, take the plugs out and clean and regap them(or replace) clean up your coil pack so to illiminate it just being a bad connection making the car play up. check for no water loss and no oil in water(headgasket) and keep oil level correct!

    next time u put oil in, do it a little bit at a time and keep checking the dipstick!
