    1.7 DTI Servicing

    Hi i brought a 2003 Vauxhall Envoy 1.7 DTI isuzu engine van on sunday.

    This coming weekend i would like to service the engine, fuel filter, oil filter, oil, plugs.

    Can anyone give me some pointers as to what oil to use and is the makes of the filters important, also what glow plugs are best ? i get good discount at halfords or would it be better to go vauxhall.

    One other question, i want to do a cambelt change, someone told be about a pulley that also need changing at the same time, is this correct?

    sorry for the basic questions, iv come from a v6 astra mk3, im new to vans and diesels lol.

    10w40 diesel oil matey, fuel filter, oil filter, air filter easily and cheaply obtained from vaux id say. Make sure you get a new gasket for the oil sump plug, copper ring.

    Glow plugs only need changing if youve got trouble starting else leave em.

    If doing cam belt just check the pulley is tight on the oil pump as they are prone to failing is all.

    Euro car parts are pretty cheap, the fuel filter is a doddle to change as it's a cartridge type as is the oil filter, i use normal 10/40 semi that's compatible with petrol and diesel engines, also the air filter to go for is the petrol versions, same size just cost less, a 1.4 16v version will fit perfectly and be half the price.

    I don't go for brand name filters, they all do pretty much the same job, i do however avoid fram oil filters if i can, from what i've read about them in the past.

    Thanks peeps.

    only reason i want to change glow plugs, my EML is on when i start the car for 5 to 10 mins, about when the heaters warm up then the light goes off.

    Do a pedal test as you might find it could be something else. (search on here for the guide)
