In my manual and service book it states 5w 30.

I am sure I read somewhere that they now recommend 0w 30.

What are peoples view on this?

I am in the UK.

Hi DaPa

I had my car serviced last month at my Local Robins and Day Vauxhall/Peugeot dealership and they used 5W 30.

Hi DaPa

That's the grade they put in my car in December 2020.

Since discovering that the wet timing belt was an issue I seriously considered getting rid of mine, then reading about there are a lot of small engine cars using the wet timing belt.

Is it such a big issue if serviced correctly?

Vauxhall sent a memo months ago instructing their garages to use 0W-30 oil. My car had the 5W-30 and the belt deteriorated.
