Been searching for a clear answer on this one for a while with various answers being found all conflicking as always lol...
My 2004 1.8 is nearing the 90k line. She had her timing belt changed 2 years ago at 63k. The oil and filter was changed last year as part of a service in June ahead of the MOT. I paid a garage to do the work as I was not confident enough to do it myself.
I have since put myself through a basic course and am feeling confident about servicing the car for the most part. I was planning on doing some work on it to get her running great (although that said, she is running great anyway at present).
Oil and filter change is fine, pollen folter and air filter is also dead easy to do... I can all the checks on breaks etc (check a few months ago and all were great onthe car with loads of life left in them)...
So what else should I be considering / checking / replacing as part of a service?
I am thining spark plugs but am not sure when these need to be done (never been changed while I have had the car) and should i pre-empt a coil pack failure and change this also now? What about the battery (original unit still on the car)... should I consider swapping it out given it's 8+ years old?
the fuel filter was somethign else I had wondered about but I don't know if this is a basic task or if it takes quite allot of skill. The Haynes manaul on it looks rather complicated...!
Anything else you guys can recomend changing?
