Vauxhall Adam Engine Oil Finder

The Vauxhall Adam was produced from 2012 to 2019 as a three-door compact car on the shortened basis of the Vauxhall Corsa. At 3.70 meters, the Vauxhall Adam is 13cm longer than a Fiat 500. Thanks to two-tone paintwork and numerous interior design options, Vauxhall (Opel) was able to offer an unbelievable 30,000 equipment options. The Adam was positioned as a stylish small car for the urban lifestyle. The engines were available as three and four-cylinder aggregates which vary in power output from 70 to 150 hp.

The Importance Of Oil In Vauxhall Adam

Vauxhall (Known as Opel in Europe) launched the 'Adam' in 2012 and it rolled off the production line for 7 years before being discontinued in 2019. - with seven different engines and a convincing selection of equipment variants it was a popular small family car. But it doesn't matter whether your vehicle is a Vauxhall Adam 1.4 Glam or the Adam Rocks with an off-road look. All engines that are used in the Vauxhall Adam always have at least one thing in common: they need fresh engine oil at regular intervals so that they work well and last a long time. For the pistons to run as smoothly as possible in the cylinders, they need an oily lubricating film on the running surface. This oil film also represents the dividing line between the combustion chambers and the oil circuit. Because residues are produced during combustion, dirt particles also get into the engine oil.

Vauxhall Adam Oil Change Interval

In the Vauxhall Adam, the engine oil is usually changed either once a year or every 30,000 km - whichever comes first. Under certain conditions, however, the oil change may be due earlier. For Example:

• With frequent cold starts
• Frequently used to tow a trailer or caravan
• Predominant use in the mountains
• Often used on bad, muddy or dusty roads
• Regularly driven in extremely cold or hot weather

Frequent short trips also put a strain on the engine oil. Condensation forms in the oil circuit, which is normal. This usually evaporates again when the engine reaches its operating temperature. However, the engine of your Opel Adam does not get really warm over short distances. Then it accumulates in the engine oil and changes its protective properties.

With the Vauxhall Adam, the filling quantity is simple and clear: Each of the petrol engines needs 4.0 litres of engine oil for an oil change. Also, when topping up, make sure that the level on the dipstick is always between min. and max. Because too much engine oil can damage your car just as much as too little.

Regularly checking and changing your Vauxhall Adam engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.
