Oil change 2.2 petrol engine.
« on: 26 February 2012, 22:43:14 »

Hi, thinking that I may change the oil myself on the estate, is the oil filter which looks very easy to get at a straight forward screw on type it looks like it to me, it is a 2003 model, also what is the recommended interval for plugs to be changed on the 2.2 & 2.6 engines.

Oil filter is the screw on type, which should be tightened finger tight.

Spark plugs, if I remember correctly, 60,000 miles, but they're cheap enough to replace anyway.
