Servicing my 156 jtd


Right I'm being a bit of a dipstick

I've just realised that I'm a little overdue for an oil change, and decided I'll do it myself like I have on previous cars i've owned... Anywho I thought I'd do the Air Filter as well but for the life of me can't work out which bit is the air filter. Is it the big black box at the bottom front right of the engine. It seems to make sense, but seems pretty difficult to access... Am I being thick???Is there anywhere I could get an engine layout map thing? with nice big labels so Special needs people like me can work it out???

secondly how frequently should the fuel filter be changed, thought I'd do that as well (and yes I do know where that is...)

Air filter access is a bit of a pig.. Needs to be done every 10k really especially on the diesel as they suck a lot of air. Try and do intermediary oil & filter changes as well, they really benefit from it. Every 6 months or 6k miles I used to do on my old 2.4, and that engine is well over 150k now with a different owner, still going strong and its had tuning boxes or remaps on it since about 80k.

The big rubber hose to the top of the airbox has quick release jubilee clips on, just pop them open, and there's plenty of space to get the top off the box, they go back on with a squeeze from some long nose plyers...
