    Default Servicing the vec...

    Hey guys, got a week or so off coming up soon, fancy servicing the car myself... But need to know what to buy!

    then its straight forward to service a 1.8 fella you need air/oil/pollen/fuel/filters oil,spark plugs/ then just check all the brakes / lights/ top up/check brake fluid/steering fluid/washers

    Whats the mileage? When was the timing belt last replaced? Coolant has a 5 year life span and needs to be able to protect down to -28(for lubrication purposes as opposed to temp apparently) .

    I am off work next week too , got mine booked in for its 3rd service and 1st MOT. I did'nt really want Vauxhall to carry out the MOT but for £35 its not to bad ( as long as it passes that is ) its also out of warranty in april so last chance for them to find if anything does need fixing . £152 service, £35 MOT.

    You can get a VX kit from ebay for around £55 delivered, or from the dealers for around £100. 60k or 6 years are the recommended intervals for the Z18XE mate. about an hours work for a mechanic, a dealer will no doubt charge for 2 hours.
