    a couple of basic filter questions

    orrite chaps, don't want to appear stupid but could anyone tell me the number of the fuel filter and oil filter for a 2001 1.8 sri so i know what i'm looking for on ebay etc.

    I would also welcome any comments on what brand of of oil to use as i'm looking to do an oil change this weekend and not sure whether to go for halfords own brand (with free screwdrivers) or is it worth the extra few quid for magnatec or equivalent.

    cheers

    Often you will find on ebay that when people sell filters they will have which engines they suit somewhere in the listing. I have only ever used halfrauds 10w40 semi-synthetic and it seems fine.

    Oh and the free screwdrivers are total whack.

    the air filter is part No 93192885, the oil filter can be either insert or cartridge type. with your year i am guessing your engine is x18xe which iirc the last one i changed on these engines was an insert. vauxhalls own 1ow/40 semi synthetic is as good as this grade gets. as above the halfrauds screwdrivers are not good, the ends distort very easily.

    why not order the parts from http://www.autovaux.co.uk nice and cheap and often genuine OE parts
