    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 140 Ecoflex S/S

    Year : 2013

    Default 2002 3.2 service intervals?

    Just got my 2002 GSi 3.2 and every time I start it I get the message "INSP" appearing above the mileometer.

    According to the service book, the car was serviced at 49836 miles and it's now done 56000 miles so I don't think it's anywhere near another service (every 20k?).

    So what does "INSP" mean?

    Alos according to the owners manual, if you push the trip button with the ignition off, you get the miles to your next service displayed in the rev counter (where my auto box gear selector display is). Now this doesn't seem to work on mine.

    Any ideas people?

    Many thanks.

    Its every year or 20k whatever is soonest. If yours comes up INSP then you dont get the display in your gear selector display.
    To clear the INSP:-
    Press and hold brake pedal
    press and hold trip reset button
    switch on ignition (Second position engine not running)
    after 10-12 seconds the insp should flash and go out.
    release brake pedal and trip reset button and ign off.
    All done

    Cheers Sundance - did what you suggested and all's now OK.

    Oh, and car was only serviced on 17.10.07.. So the last owner racked up 6000 miles since then, in two months, god knows where he went.

    Oil does look dark for just 6000 miles so I'll probably change it anyway.

    As for the "insp", maybe I didn't notice it as I only got the motor on Saturday 15th December and perhaps the garage forgot to clear it at the last service?

    more than likely they did forget to reset it....

    for the longest service life out of your V6, service it every 10-12,000 miles with the best 5W30 longlife oil you can buy..
