Right so looking at servicing the GT JTDm. Got a few questions, some I know are obvious, others I just want to make sure.
Oil: when I had this engine in the astra I would put in 5w30 oil, I know Alfa recommend their own type but what do you all recommend? I've been using 5w30 to keep her topped up for now.
Oil filter: where is it? I've only looked from the top currently, I'm sure it will become obvious if I jack it up was just hoping to make my life easy with a sump pump but looks like I've got to jack it up anyway. Also is it a canister or external type, if it is canister what is the size of the top nut?
Air filter: it looks like a pig, is it? Or is it easy to access from below?
Fuel filter: Looks easy, probably think it's too easy, will be a pain, recommended replacement schedule?
Pollen filter: usual ********
Extra items to do:
Gearbox oil: think it's about time, car has done 111k miles, don't think it's ever been done, is there separate drain and fill plugs?
Brake fluid: any recommendations?
Coolant: shall I bother, it looks clean? Where would you drain from? Does it need to be bled manually?
Anything I've missed?
Also will be treating the girl to potentially upper and lower front arms and associated bits and bobs.
Rear suspension... Have jagged wear on inside of tyres, usual suspect?
Sorry for the essay
thanks for any contributions!
