Vauxhall (Opel) Zafira Engine Oil Finder

Launched in 1999, the Opel Zafira was offered over three generations with a wide range of engines. The Zafira A offered four-cylinder petrol engines ranging from 1.6 to 2.0 litres, producing 101 to 200 hp, as well as a 2.2-liter engine with 147 hp. Diesel engines were sold from 2 litres with 82 hp up to 2.2 litres with 125 hp. From 2002, the first model with a natural gas engine (CNG) went on sale. The 1.6 CNG ecoFLEX delivers 97 hp.

Opel started developing alternative drive systems very early on. This is how the GM HydroGen3 was made from 2001 to 2006. Its drive is based on an electric motor that is powered by a fuel cell. With the launch of the second generation ( Zafira B ), the engine range was revised. The 1.6 to 2.2 litre petrol engines now make 105 to 240 hp. There was a choice of two diesel engines with displacements of 1.7 and 1.9 litres.

In 2011, the Zafira C went on sale with an extensive range of engines. After the exhaust gas scandal in 2015, the diesel engines were revised and since 2016 they have also scored points with the use of the SCR system with very clean exhaust gases. Almost all engines were delivered with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. Only the 1.8-liter has a 5-speed manual transmission. A 6-speed automatic transmission could be ordered as an option for some variants.

With the sale of the Opel brand to the PSA concern, the Zafira was discontinued in 2019. A minibus in VW T6 format is now being offered under the same name, which is structurally identical to the Peugeot Traveller, Toyota ProAce Verso and Citroën Spacetourer.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Vauxhall Zafira's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Vauxhall Zafira 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.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Vauxhall Zafira? Whether you are topping up your Vauxhall Zafira oil or doing a full change of your Vauxhall Zafira's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.

We have listed all the Vauxhall Zafira models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for your Vauxhall Zafira.
