159 3.2 JTS Q4 ownership begins
I've just bought my first Alfa Romeo. It's a 2007 159 3.2 JTS Q4 with the Q-Tronic transmission. It has 109,xxx kilometres on the odometer, but I didn't get any service books with the car.
However, I contacted the dealer listed on the service sticker. The mechanic at revealed to me that the car had been serviced from new with after a short life as a demonstrator. They're asking for A$90 to buy a replacement log book and to stamp it up for me.
Whenever I buy a car, I usually refresh all the fluids and some of the easier to access consumables. Can I have some additions or corrections to the list here. I don't have an Owners Manual, so some of the data may be missing or wrong for the 2007 model.
Can the lubricant in the front/centre and the rear differential be changed? Also, I'm unsure what sort of differential is at the rear.
Coolant: 7.5l of 50% water 50% coolant
Engine oil: 5.4l of ???
Brake fluid: ???l of ???
Power steering fluid: ???l of ???
Transmission fluid (for the AWTF-80SC): 6.0l of ???
New air filter
New fuel filter
New oil filter
New pollen filter
I'd really appreciate some input on this as well as any other suggestions for service at this stage.
