Re: Maintainence question
I have had 100,000 trouble free miles out of my 156 engine by changing the oil every 5,000 miles, belts and pulleys every 36,000, plugs every 40,000 and coolant every 2 years. I did change the variator at 72,000 (because everyone says you should) but it didn't need doing!
Power steering fluid level has never changed, brake fluid was never topped up but was changed every 2 years (along with pads and discs).
My engine didn't use any oil between changes after about 20,000 miles in total, but when it was new I topped it up every couple of weeks.
The car is still running on its original battery, exhaust, alternator, starter etc, etc after 9 years.
My car has not been faultless (Selepeed and suspension) but the engine has been the best I have owned.
Hope you do as well!
