Ok guys i bought and EBII lastnight and i found a bit of paper in the center console it looks to be from a roadworthy, it has Engine Mount Bolt Loose r.h, can anyone tell me what this means, and also what oil is ideal for running throught the engine as the oild needs a change. Before anyone start flaming me i have not changed an oil filter on a car nor droped the oil, althought i do know how to change oil.

Where about is the oil filter located and how hard is it to get to?

All advise given is greatly appriciated.

Oil filter is on the passenger side of the car towards the bottom of the sump, underneath all the intake manifold crap. It's easy to get to if you lie underneath the car and look straight up, can't miss it. Put in some decent 20/50w stuff, that'll probably do.



What's the difference between a Holden and a sheep? It's less embarrasing getting out of the back of a sheep..

engine mount bolt loose, the engine is not bolted straight to the chassis it has 'mounts' in between, they simply absorb vibrations. over time the bolts can come a little loose, would have been tightened if the paper is roadworthy.

oil use 15/50 or 20/50, some decent stuff, valvoline fuchs is like $20, changed every 5000k's.

filter passenger side next to sump you'll see it, need Z9 size and a wrench to remove the old one. filter wrenchs are around $10, again get a decent one valvoline, ryco, $5-8. change every 10,000k's or if you can with the oil.
