hi everybody, this is my first post but ive just bought a 2002 astra 1.4 16v, everything seemed fine, not a mark anywhere. good service history with car.

oil light flashed on last night on way home, which was ok, thought must just be low. so i topped up with 10w-40 anyways and light off great. but today the light came back on, so topped up. then on my way home, light came on again and stayed on this time.

i will top up in morning before driving. but why is it using this much oil??

is there any commons problems? any ideas, may be a leak, will get look at weekend, but thought id try here....

all help appreciated.

ps the cars mileage is 112k.

Sounds like rocket cover gasket leaking, clean the oil up and see were its coming from, only place i can think of is top gasket were the rocker cover meets the head, its a pretty common thing, they are about £15 from VX, aftermarket ones about £8
