    Thumbs up 1.9 filter change

    I am going to be servicing the car soon but don't no how long the life of the 1.9 kit filter is? Any ideas? Also I went back to vx spark plugs as the other ones caused problems, they have been in about 5k should I change them as well?

    Thanks in advanced

    I have a brand new 1.9cdti vauxhall filter sat in my garage if you want one, think its every 2 years its changed.

    Vauxhall say 4 years or 40,000 miles but as beefy says worth doing it early.

    Is it hard to change spark plugs? Or is it just 1 out 1 in?

    Yeah easy enough, but you need the correct tools, and make sure engine is cool.

    And careful not to cross thread them. The spark plug should be softer than the female thread so if you do balls it up the plug thread dies and not your engine's but better to be extra careful
