Use the best oil you can afford and change regularly. I had the cams sieze up on my 95 primera 2.0. The oil feeds to the top end through pin holes.

Anything from a 0W-30 to a 5W-40 should be fine (probably best with the former at this time of year). Use an SL-spec. fully synthetic - personally I like the GM stuff that Vauxhall dealers sell; I get it at a very good price.
Change the oil and filter regularly on these engines (say every six months) and they last for ever.

If you want detailed technical info (manfrs. oil specs, oil change proceedure etc) on this vehicle then mail me at:
