    Question General engine maintenance - 1.9CDTi

    Just have a question about general engine maintenance & what can be done when servicing the 1.9CDTi engines.

    My Vectra is just over 150,000 miles now, engine feels very strong still - just want to make sure I can service it the best I can really.

    The engine had a new cambelt & waterpump just before I got it, 9,000 miles ago, I serviced it just after I got it (used fully synthetic oil.etc) and after a long trip around europe, I feel its time to give it another service.

    Since I purchased the car I have;

    Stripped and cleaned the EGR valve (fitted the modified gaskets)
    Replaced the gearbox oil (Redline MTL)
    Engine flushed and replaced oil & filter (Motul 8100 5-40 fully synthetic)
    Replaced coolant
    Cleaned boost sensor
    Have used Millers diesel additive for the past 6 tanks.

    Just wondering what else I can do / clean? - thinking about cleaning out the intercooler.
