Greetings! Welcome to Tezzaworld website, unfortunately you are a few years late to the show as nearly everyone has been and gone, there is still lots of useful archived material to read through, not many active users unfortunately, but that’s the way it goes, hopefully you are not too disappointed...
So its that time again to change the oil. I'm my manual it say 5.1 L when changing filter and oil is this correct. That 5w30 oil ain't cheap at 61 Euro for 4 litres, a liter bottle costs 20 euro. Its expensive stuff to run the car on!
Also when checking the oil level after changing it, when is the best time to check. Bring it for a drive test it when its warm or when cold?
Take it for a drive and let it cool down for about an hour after. This gives the oil time to settle back down into the sump.
On the price of oil, ya its crazy but its the life blood of the engine and prob the most important part to have right.
Tis a funny world alright. The price of oil is gone mental. Here at work our oil is gone nearly twice the price in the last two years. Been thinking of drilling a big hole in the back yard for a while and see if I get lucky and find oil. Happy days then
