How dirty an oil filter? (n other chat).
Hi All, Yesterday I got daughter and her b/f to do an oil and filter change on the 1.2 Corsa we have just bought off his family (she also fitted the replacement rear wiper motor and that works fine again). ;-) I has (supposedly) been maintained by a couple of local garages up in Scotland and should have had (o... 27 Jul 2010 06:16
