    Default Service help please

    The car is a 1.8 VVTi has done 30k nearly, just wanted to know what sort of service it needs, what parts to get? The last service was at 20K and had the following done:

    Oil Change
    Oil Filter
    Fuel Filter
    Pollen Filter
    Panel Filter
    Had the cambelt done as well I know it was very early but had a leak on the camshaft so did that at the same time.
    Rear Brake pads as well (silly VX Dealer) Had the rest done at a local garage.

    So guessing its a minor service?

    The only thing you missed was the MY, so assume it is stil lthe 2006 in your profile

    Simply repeat the previous service, less the cambelt change
    Include a brake fluid change, due in 2009 then every second year
    Also at four years / 40K miles are the spark plugs, so these are also now due

    It was a whole kit so should be good until 70/80k, its an 06 with 30k so are the spark plugs good for another year or as the 4 years have come around get them done? Also how many litres do I need for an oil change, guessing the panel filter and fuel filter are fine?

    If its done 10 k since the last service, then just oil , and filter. I only do 10k a year if that, and I always change the oil, filter, pollen filter,air and plugs, but thats just me...

    oil change is 4.25 ltrs, it would not hurt to do the plugs,, when I bought my none vvt 1.8 it was due a servive, so new GM plugs whent in only 10,000 mile later I thought I Would have a lookie see what the plugs were like as my mpg had droped quite a bit, I am glad I did, although the plugs were a perfect colour, all the plug gaps were all over the place some were massive while others were a tiny gap, the gaps had been checked when fitted, I fitted bosch super, then checked them 10,000 miles later all gaps still perfect
