Download the 'my vauxhall' app and download the Adam manual and you'll be able to store all the info you ever need to know on your phone :)

Best thing to do is pop into a vauxhall dealer and stick to the products they use as standard

Thanks people. Service isn't due till end of march and I can't wait that long. And I don't think it will make it to my nearest vauxhall dealer. Can I use any oil? Are there any certain types I can get?

Yeah I can take my Adam for a oil top up whenever it needs it. Part of the service plan. I wouldnt trust the computer on the Adam either for oil level mine says 60% but when I checked the dip stick it was still full.

I don't think the oil % indicator on the Adam isn't about how full the oil is, it's about how old it is and when in needs emptying and changing for a new lot. (I think?)

You have to use the oil specified for your car, Measured as a viscosity,
According to page 196 ofthe handbook :
A dexos 2 graded oil or In case dexos quality is unavailable you may use max. 1 litre engine oil quality for topping up once between each
oil change with SAE 5W-30 or SAE 5W-40


You could cause damage by using the wrong oil, and if Vauxhall know you have used the wrong oil then your warranty could be void.

though this could be argued with them, and you could try to put the onus on them to prove that the oil has caused any damage, but much easier to just put in what they recommend.

Pump up the jam springs to mind although while I sat there my daughter picked the style and my wife, who has now lost her car to my daughter since she passed her test, was happy with her new buggy. I love having a wee shot now and then, its a pleasure to drive and looks amazing and quite nippy 1.4 garage got paperwork wrong but honoured dearer car with leather etc :)

If your car is one year old it has to have a service and check for the lifetime warranty even if it has only done 3200 miles. Check with your dealer thoughEdited by: gillsid
