I'm new to Astra ownership. I have an Astra K elite nav 1.4T 16V auto sports tourer and would love to know what oil you guys would recommend? Also I was wandering if the alarm & immobiliser were thatcham approved?
Thanks in advance.
The oil is manufacture year specific on the astra k 1.4T. You won't go wrong using vauxhalls own branded oil. They ploughed loads of money in to its research and helped set the bench mark in the fight against oil derived lspi.
MY16 and MY17 - dexos 1 generation 2, 5W30.
MY 18 onwards- 0w20 0V0401547
I am not sure about the thatchem bit but I doubt you getting the car started without the key, as so many modules are protected by the immobilizer system.
