ok, were to start, i have a list of questions that i would love answer...
could any body confirm the below for me.
i know i am asking A LOT !!! but all help is apreciated
I am going to be doing i FULL service and cam belt change myself in about 2-3 weeks from now, i have done many of services before, and cam belts, but never on an alfa...soo i am guessing i should be prepared..
i really need to know the following for this car (my car)
2003 1.8 sportsback 13500km (about 80,000miles) on the clock.
engine oil - what is the EXACT oil i should use, 10-40 0r 60, semi or fully sinth?
gearbox oil - what is recommended (by the way, do i need to change this?) or not?
spark plugs - what are the type and number i should have?
air filter - na - i have that
oil filter - i have
apart from the above, what else MUST be changed at a full service, i know i will reblead all brakes with fresh fluid, check and change all fluids, brakes are new so they are good, new dampers and springs so they are good,i got 4x new tyres to, so they are good
do i need to do any resets, or adjustments anywhere?
ok, Part 2
how, or should i say where is the drain for the gearbox, i would like to completely change this oil, not just top it up if needed. pictures would be great
also, what socket sized will i need for oil drain and gearbox oil drain (see, i am being prepared
ok part 3
Now here is the biggy!!!
CAM BELT CHANGE !!!
now i have seen and read lots, and lots , and lots of comments on this site about changing it, but i need to know the best link "HOW TOO GUIDE" that people have used to change themseves, i will print it out and follow it stop by step.
do i only change the cam belt, or the aux belt too?
What tools and sizes of tools will i need?
i know i need 2x cam locks, i will get these
OK, lastly !!!!!!!!!!!
where would you peeps recommend i can order online the below items (must be a company that can send to Norway)
cam belt (kit?)
the above items are TOO EXPENSIVE HERE so i need to order from uk.
incase you wonder why i dont get a garage to do it i will explain.
cam belt change only 740 pounds in your money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
service 550 pounds in your money !!!!!!!!!!!!
now you can see why i need to do it myself
Any and all help over the next few weeks to get me a portfolio printed , and all tools ready for the big day will be more than apreciated, and if i have missed something obvious of the list PLEASE TELL ME, however silly you might think it is
thank you all, love you all, Hurra to ALFA ROMEO
