    Service

    Hiya my car has started to run pretty heavy on fuel now so thought it was time for a service, Its an astra 18 sxi on an 02 plate with 65,000 miles on they clock so im going to change they spark plugs, they air filter, they pollen filter and they oil. I still have some 15w-40 castrol gtx magnatec (synthetic) in they cupboard so would you recommend i use that or would you put 10-40 in instead and synthetic or semi synthetic, Also apart from the things mentioned above would any of you change anything else too. Thanks

    On a 65k mile car use 10w-40 Semi Synthetic from Vauxhall, it's cheap enough.

    They may as well change the fuel filter too.

    Was the timing belt/water pump changed at 40k?

    To be honest no the timing belt hasn't been done yet but it will be going in, in the next couple of weeks to be done but i thought on they astra it's every 60k that its meant to be done

    No, it's 40k miles.

    It says 60k in the service book, but Vauxhall brought the interval down to 40k.
