    Default 1.9 CDTI Servicing

    Hi, looking at a 3 year old 57k mile signum in the next few days.

    Can anyone tell the service schedule?

    Should I expect a big cambelt service at 60k?

    Thanks

    the big cambelt service is at 100,00 miles... if you're brave enough to wait that long..

    servive intervals are a moot point.. some wait for the indicator..some ( like me) change the oil more regularly..i do mine every 6,000 for instance..

    not when oil is 60p a litre to me......

    regular oil changes are the BEST form of maintainence you can give a car...it's the extended service intervals that allow the formation of sludge and carbon deposits..

    Anal??.. not me..just too experienced with cars to know whats good for them or not....

    I'd have to agree with Mark. My mate changes his oil 1/2 way between his serivce intervals and I've noticed the lack of silly problems he gets, so I'm gonna learn how to do it myself and start changing 6k. Mark would you recomend using the same oil that was used during the service or should I try and use the best I can get (i,e 5w)???


    Its quite funny when people think car's should be serviced at certain points say every 10,000 miles, cambelt changed every 60k etc. Its only a guide in my opinion. The most important things are weekly checks and a good mechanic you can trust.
    The Mrs' car a punto got a new cambelt, air filter and oil filter/oil change and the cost was £110

    i'd use VX's 5W30 synthetic to give maximum cold start protection...it's not cheap if you're not trade.. but it's a darn sight cheaper than a new engine
