Thread: Major service as no service history

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Major service as no service history

    Hi, we have just got a 51 plate 1.4 SE petrol with 140K and no service history.

    I am looking at doing a major service as listed below and wondered if there is anything I have missed, brands of replacements or anything else I should be doing at the same time?

    Cambelt and change incl pulleys - not purchased yet
    Water pump - not purchased yet
    Thermostat - not purchased yet
    Oil Change - purchased
    Oil filter - purchased
    Air filter - purchased
    Cabin filter - purchased

    Gearbox oil change ?????????????
    Spark plugs ???????????????

    How long would the above take to complete (I haven't got a workshop manual so will also have to trawl the forums for guidance on the cambelt, water pump and thermostat changes)?

    Thanks in anticipation

    Neil

    I have a brand new set of timing belts and a water pump - bought in error from GSF a few months ago, I wanted the TDI AMF parts, but ordered the 1.4 petrol parts in error, I can do you these delivered at £20 under what I paid for them. PM me if interested
    As already suggested a fuel filter is a must change item

    Being fair to all I will leave the offer open until 9pm today to the original member. If I have not heard anything back by they are your. I think that is fair enough to everyone

    Thanks for the offer Paul. Unfortunately, due to my haste, I purchased a timing belt kit and water pump online last night before I saw your message.

    I will also change the fuel filter, just got to look underneath to see exactly which filter is currently fitted so that I can get the correct one.

    Is there any recommendation for the brand and code for the spark plugs?

    I would at least check the gearbox oil level. I recall it's supposed to be for life but mine was low at 60k so I had it changed. Others have also found low levels.

    Just saw this in a post
    Audi don't specify a gearbox oil change in their service schedules. The benefits are marginal but the oil will oxidise and absorb moisture over the years and loose some of its properties. It more of a preventative measure but certainly worth considering if you plan to keep the car a long time.

    Fuel Consumption for 1.4 TDi 75 SE: <sorry deleted - will try to reinstate>
    Mostly A(T), A or B roads.
    Was 62.5 mpg with Pilot Primacy Michelins 185/50/16 18V
    Then 58 mpg with Pirrelli P6000 Powergy but they are much quieter.
    Next 62 mpg after 5th gear change to 0.65 (Skipton) & remap of +20 bhp (Stealth) on a 4,000 mile European trip.
    Now Toyo Proxes T1R - also quiet.
    Changed matt black slatted grill for the glossy black smooth grill.

    Thanks Alan. I had seen the post with the many how to's etc. I will give the gearbox oil a thought, especially with the relatively high mileage it has done.

    Does anyone have a part number for the cam locking tool, or could I use a generic one? I have watched a couple of videos for the VW Lupo and I believe it is the AUA engine.

    Is there a locking tool for the bottom cogs as I have seen something on one video but not others.

    Also, has anyone had to remove the rocker cover to re-seal the gasket and if so is there a write up (I have tried the search function but couldn't see one). I know it states to do it at the same time as a cambelt change as the belts have to come off be able to remove the rocker cover, and replece the rocker cover bolts once removed.
