Need to get it up on car ramps first.Then under car is a full width dirt shield,find the access panel held on with about six large captive snap fasteners. Remove this and sump plug should be revealed.It's usually a large torx head plug,about t45 I think.Replaceable "o"ring on plug too.Then procede as normal. Always change the filter at the same time,use a good semi-synthetic oil.I use Millers 10w-40.

5w-30 fully synthetic. Just phone a Vauxhall dealer, and ask them.

Depends on what engine is in this car. Use the 5W-40W grade fully synthetic engine oil. For gasoline engine check that the oil is A3 spec. For diesel engine, it should be B3 spec.

What oil does the 1.8 Sri take year 06

diesel 20 ltr, oil filter is situated at the front of the engine underneath the Black plastic engine cover. remove cover and look down the front of the engine were you will see the top of the oil filter housing, ( you will need a 36mm socket to undo this cap) once removed lift out the oil filter and replace with new. genuine Vauxhall filter comes compleate with new o ring seals. easy job with minimal oil spilage.

The service booklet for my Zafira 1600 petrol (2009)(25k) as been stamped twice, on each service they have used an SAE of 5w30 but could also used 0w30. or 0w40 and 5w40 only.Now!hmmm it doesnt say if its mineral semi synth or fullsynth , its due an oil change so im going to contact the vauxhall garage and try and find out what they used.

The Zafira is fitted with an eco (paper element filter) located at the front of the engine. you are looking for a black dome with approx 30mm hexagon on it when you replace the eco filter tighten only to the recommended torque shown on the filter housing Semi synthetic oil should be fine.

If the oil change light on your Vauxhall Antara 2.0CDTI doesn't reset after changing the oil, you can reset it manually. Make sure all doors on the vehicle are closed, fully press the accelerator to the floor, and switch on the engine. Press the accelerator down three times in five seconds, and turn off the engine.

not an uncommon problem on these vehicles, the answer you need to find is how much oil is your engine burning. opel/vauxhall do actually state in handbooks that 1 litre of oil burned per 1000 miles is acceptable usuage (ie 20 litres of oil between services!) robb

it takes 3.5 litres with an oil filter change at the same on an 8 valve 1.6 litre petrol engine

Remove the oil cap and the eco plate underneath it. Disconnect the wires and remove the coil pack, and the spark plugs will be under that.

Its at the back of the engine underneath the oil filter

Hi there is a 24mm bolt on the gearbox on the under side. And then put the new oil in by the dip stick.

There is no oil to change in a two stroke engine. The lubricant is the oil that is mixed with the gas.

It's below the oil filter. Just loosen the screw, pull out, and replace.

It is either time for a oil and filter change or the engine is low on oil.

go to halfords web site tap in your reg and all engine oil options for your car will be listed

hi , if you do not know how to change the oil filter on your zafira you would be best to employ the use of a garage or a mobile mechanic, should take no more than 30 mins if you have warmed up the car beforehand so as the oil flows freely, and it will be cheaper if you supply the parts which are easily purchased from any good motor factors.

how do I fill the gearbox oil on a vauxhall vectra

The service engine soon is the same as a check engine light. It has nothing to do with an oil change.
