16v service advice

Post by Meadlo » Thu Feb 07, 2019 6:00 pm

Hi Guys. I’ve got a 16v no service history. It’s not long turned 60000. I’ve been saving up my pennies. I’m planning timing belt & Kit gates, air & fuel filter, plugs & ht leads, fuel & water pump, oil & filter. Is there anything thing else that I should be looking to get done at the same time.

Hi ya, if it’s only done 60000 I should hold off on the fuel and water pump unless you’ve been having problems. Definitely do the cam belt and all the filters, also the auxiliary belts. And HT leads, plugs, oil and filter of course 👍

Ok, the engine might be covered by the above,

But what about the rest of the car :)

Gearbox oil, when was that last changed :?: 3lts needed for a full change, but you should at the very least check the oil level & top up if required,

Brake Fluid, what colour is it :?: Black :!: that also could do with changing

Anti freeze :?: flush out the cooling system inc the heater matrix, by taking off one of the heater hoses., remember to remove the thermostat, so the engine block can be flushed.
Then refill with new antifreeze

Brakes- when where they last stripped down to ensure they work properly, check pad&disc wear ;)
Exhaust system, for leaks, corrosion, hangers&rubbers

While the wheels are off, check the tyres & rims, especially the inside ;)

Lights, wipers, Windscreen washers& horn all in working order

Steering fluid, not the easiest to change, but it’s worth thinking about, if the steering is a bit hard, again check the level& for an leaks

CV boots for splits, drop links&wish none ball joints for wear&movement

Have I missed anything :?: :?:

The above are also applicable to 24v cars 🚙 :lol: :x

Please remember, on the 16v the car Belt need to come off to change the water pump,

List not that bad, I plan to do most of that tomorrow to my 16v Teal, as long as the weather holds
