That oil is fine.

@Maddogpro - I think it's 6 litres, and it's a cartridge filter which you need a 36mm 'special socket' for (one with the corners cut out to prevent rounding) - it's a Laser 3491 or equivalent.

Simple job, no need to touch anything other than the filler cap, dipstick, sump plug and filter.

whatever you do,DONT try and remove the end without the 36mm socket. you'll end up buggering the plastic nut.I nearly ruined mines,& that was just with one slip. 5.8ltrs mine took

Plus, it isn't actually a nut, per se, it's a nut-shaped bit of plastic that's part of the filter casing. If you wreck the nut, you need to replace the whole casing.

Thankyou i have 36mm sockets so will give it a gentle go

If they aren't the ones with corner cut-outs, then for the love of sanity - don't!

The casing will be on there !Removed! tight (I needed an 18" breaker on mine - could not budge it with a standard ratchet), and in all seriousness you stand more than a fair chance of wrecking it without the correct tools.
