  • How to an oil change

    I want to change the oil in my astra before i leave for the next ten months and was wondering how i go about doing this? Usually i just take it to the stealers but i've got no tax/insurance on it which makes it pretty hard. Is it a fairly simple job? I managed to figure out how to change the brake pads and hoping its on the same scale of easiness,

    just jack the car, find the sump plug, take it out (make sure you have a tray to catch the oil,(take the oil filler cap off too) find the oil filter (not sure where it is on the astra as i havent done an oil change on one yet), take that off, put the plug back in the sump, half fill your oil filter with fresh oil, fit it, then drop the car and fill with oil to correct level. oil change..... done

          If you are not going to use it for 10 months, I would change it when you come back.
