amazing, just amazing!
My 2nd service is due at the end of the month, anyone got an idea of the price and what's checked/done? I'm not sure I want Arnold Clark to do mine, I'd prefer a local garage I know to do it.
Can't change the plugs on a diesel though!...not that much to "service" reallySecond one is a major service' it usually follows as intermediate (first service) which is basically just a oil change followed by a full of major service where they change the air filter plugs etc' a decent independent garage will charge between £150- £200..
Make sure they record the rust inspection, should be every 2 years at least in the Dusters case every year..My 2nd service is due at the end of the month, anyone got an idea of the price and what's checked/done? I'm not sure I want Arnold Clark to do mine, I'd prefer a local garage I know to do it.
On all the diesels I have had, after the first service they all had the Glow plugs changed at every service (always asked). My Fiat Tipo i had in the 1990's had to be serviced every 4500 miles (all fall me, that was the only question I never asked) and the glow plugs were changed after every service and never failed to start.Glow plugs are a serviceable item' like everything else if you use them they will wear out. A decent diesel grease monkey will at least inspect/clean them for optimum starting.
Ah! They were the days.....when diesels needed oil changes every few months!My Fiat Tipo i had in the 1990's had to be serviced every 4500 miles .
Relatives of mine had one on an M-plate. I never had the opportunity to drive it, but they spoke highly of it.Tipo diesel was an amazing car for the time, handling was incredible for a hatchback.
1.6, 1.8i or 2.0i? Can't remember if the 'DGT' designation had been dropped by the time the 2.0 was added.Tempra DGT SX, digital dash in Blue Lord. Loved that car. Only car I ever wished lasted a bit longer. So comfortable.
Aye. Just a shame the bodies had a propensity to fall apart around them... Even the galvanising experiment wasn't totally successful. Tipos tended to fare better than Tempras in that regard.1.6, the best engine of the lot. Can't beat a FIAT twincam, unless its the Strada 130TC Abarth which was a firebreathing monster GTi killer.
