I have a 2007 vauxhall astra club 1.4 which I purchased last week. Opon purchase I noticed the oil can light was flashing quite frequently.
I purchased some Semi-Synthetic Oil 10w40 5Ltr and a guy at work said it was practically running on fumes and he filled it up for me. From the 5ltr tub there is now about 2 ltrs left so he put quite a lot in. The acceleration on the car is really slow since this and I often have to change down on hills that otherwise shouldnt be a problem. Also the oil can light although not so frequent still keeps appearing.
Is the lack of acceleration anything to do with the oil?
