Hi All,
Im about to do an oil change on my 159.
Just a couple of questions?
What oil dose everyone recommend? Im thinking of Shell Helix ultra.
Also dose it have hydraulic lifters? as it sound a bit tappy. Would anyone recommend using A valve lifter treatment like Wynns?
Bosch or Crosland filter?
Thanks for any help you can give.
Chris.

you doing the fuel filter too? if so make sure you get the proper one, they're a bit pricey. think i got my last lot of bits from carparts4less, yellow and green boxes. the filter i got from alfashop. they may well do a service kit, with everything you need.

I bought a kit from Alfashop recently and the oil they supplied was Petronas Syntium 5000 DM 5w/30. I had bought a kit from them for my Giulietta and the oil for that was Petronas Selenia WR 5w/30. Apparently you can use that in a 2.4 but it is more expensive than Syntium.
