The twinspark is a great engine, can reach 150,000 miles if serviced properly.
Belts and tensioners every 36,000. Oil and filter every six months (5 or 10w/ 40 not tesco)
Water and coolant every 2 years. and not thrashing it at every oppotunity it should be reliable and have a long life.
I've added about 28,000 miles to my 2.0ltrs twinspark (54,000 miles total on clock) and it still drives perfectly and use hardly any oil between services, not even half a cupful.
A superb engine that deserves to be looked after and not skimped on, ie Original parts only esp oil filters.
