Hi,

I'm buying a new car this week.
Corsa Life 16v 1.2 05 plate.

can anyone tell me a couple of things as it wont have the manual with it:

What tyre pressure should the tyres be pumped to?
What engine oil should i use? (i think it'll be 5w30 but not sure)

thanks :)

Tyres/Oil

Hi, for a 1.2 it's 32 psi front and 26 psi for the rear tyres.your local supermarket air pressure machine will do the job..the oil recommended is 5w/30 or 5w/40 acea a3..acea a3/b3..acea a3/b3/b4 but you can use 10w/40..i use 5w/30 and change every 4 months including filter, car now done over 81k and no timing chain rattles..Eurocarparts website sell Triple QX 5w/30 for GM applications (or vauxhall), and it works fine in my 55 plate..:)
