Re: 1.9Multijet Oil Filter Removal

An oil and filter change at a local garage costs around 20 these days, is it worth getting filthy and paying for oil??

Failing that, as said, screwdriver and a hammer has always worked in the past for me.

That what I was thinking. Its at least £12 for the oil filter IIRC. Would be lucky to get 5L or Mineral oil for that price!. Would have to be a Ricambi part also unless you don't mind Fiat d***ing you over when it comes to claiming on warranty.

Why buy Selinia @ 9/litre? An oil filter from any reputable Motor Factor will be about 6.00. 4 litres of quality oil (Mobil 1 etc) will be 38.00 or less. No garage or franchise can do an oil change this year for 20.00, including the filter, oil & 30 minutes labour without giving you 5.99 worth of the worst quality oil from "QD".

What you see for 20.00 is what you pay for. You then eventually end up with a wrecked motor. - 35 years of high performance experience......

Because my car is under warranty and FIAT will play up if I develop a fault in the engine which they can even remotely blame on incorrect oil. This has been done to death on here, maybe I will go for Mobil 1 or similar when the Warranty has expired but until then Selenia it is for me.
