    Default 4th service requirements for 3.0 cdti....

    i want to give the vectra a service this week but am not sure what is required above the normal items i.e. oil, oil filter, air filter, pollen filter etc. will the glow plugs be in need of replacing, the car has got 56k on the clock?

    i'll have to get the tensioner belt done soon aswell, but i think that can wait for a month or so.

    I'd just be adding a fuel filter change, brake fluid swap and the batteries in the remote keys to that list Harry.....anything else amiss you'll spot on your way round....Leave the glowplugs.. if it starts fine at the mo, then don't bother.. they are a swine to get down to..

    cheers mark, i do recall you saying previously that the plugs are a paint to get to. the car starts fine everytime, so i think i'll leave them.

    can you delete the duplicate post please.

    one last question, what grade oil should i be filling it with 0W-30. the owners manual says either 0w-30or 0w-40 i think

    Mines got 0w40 in it now and its still the longlife stuff, but i don't do enough milage to make it last to 20k anyway. But I think its supposed to be 5w-30 I think.

    Just had my 60k service done - 5 years - and had all the filters done, oil and brake fluid. All for £230 so not too bad I am also looking to get my cam belt done in the next 10k when I can someone brave enough to do it that isn't a main dealer. MTC just had his done so meybe drop him a PM?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
