Hey all,

Hope you are well.

Might be something really stupid, but is the Fuel Filter not a serviceable part for the Astra J 2014 1.4 Turbo? I cannot seem to find it anywhere on the web.

Many thanks in advance.

Regards,
Stefan

That's because it doesn't have a replaceable fine filter,there's just a coarse filter in the tank pick up that's non-serviceable

Thanks for your reply. I guess I will have to compensate with a higher octane fuel and high quality additives every now and then.

Using a higher octane fuel or additives won't make any difference to small particles in the fuel lines,
Vx dropped using filters on the petrol engine models around 2004 when the Astra H came out and with fuel tanks now being plastic, rust particles getting in the fuel lines is much less of a problem.

Any suggestions for a gearbox oil? Would something like this work for my M32 Gearbox?
