Re: Silly question on factory engine block heater.

The car won't start faster necessarily, if its extremely cold the battery is still going to be cold and it will make that slower cranking sound. The OEM oil pan heater (not a block heater) will...

Re: Traction control light

Re: Synthetic Oil?

I've been running with plain old Motomaster 5W-30 motor oil in both of my vehicles....only $15 (on sale) for 5L and I change the oil when the OLM recommends. Seems to work well for me.

Re: Astra No Start - NO power to fuse or starter

Re: Looking for Axel shaft

For fun I've attached a pic of the Outlook's last filter change at 160,000km. Comparing the two perhaps not as much of a difference except less larger items trapped...

Re: Spark Plug Change for Astra

Nearly 4 years and 40,000km later time for spark plug change #2.
