Customer Question

My 2013 vauxhall insignia (bought 4 days ago) was just serviced at 48800 miles. Service soon light now on at 49700 miles. No engine management warnings. Oil at 85%. Is this just an automatic 50k service warning prompt or do I have a problem? The engine blew in my last insignia due to an oil pump failure and it cost me 4k for a new one so I'm worried.

Hi Laura,

SVS light would mean there is something wrong, so a scan for codes by a Vauxhall or Opel tech would be wise.

Can you get this done please?

When this service was done 900 miles ago, they might have pull the wrong type of oil in it.

Hi Gary. The service history book shows the correct oil was used. I'll be tattooing it to a garage bit wanted a bit of advice as you what to expect. Is there an automatic 50k service warning despite having one only 900 miles ago? Nothing showing on engine warning lights. Thanks

Hi Laura,

Sorry I read your model year wrong.

Yes, there will be service reminder than can only be reset by an Opel Vauxhall dealer tech with his laptop.

It could have come up at 49000 miles, (just after the recent service), 1000 miles before the 50k is due, as a reminder.

They may charge you a small fee, or a kind smile.
