    Which engine oil?

    I have a 2001 1.4 16v Astra in need of an oil change.

    Its on about 73,000 miles. It has always sounded quite tappy when running.. so im wondering what would be the best oil to use?

    without doubt, if you can afford it then go for silkolene pro-sport 5w/40 ester oil. it is full synthetic ester oil and will quieten down those tappets.
