Service - Auxillary Belt and Oil question
I took my 02 registration 1.8 156 which has done 38,000 miles into a new Alfa service agent last Friday for a 60,000 mile service. I was advised that I should have the cam belt changed which I agreed to. It was arranged that I would collect the car around midday Saturday. On arriving at the garage the receptionist advised that the mechanic was running slightly late. She suggested I pay the bill while I waited so I could leave as soon as the car was ready. This I - did perhaps foolishly. At this time she went through the 'Technical Report' two of the items listed being:
Battery requires charging as indicator on dash: Firstly, I didn't know I had such an indicator. Secondly, I have never had any problem with the battery and did not see any such indicator.
Auxiliary belt starting to crack - When I asked what this was she said it was just advisory and nothing to worry about.
After 30/45 minutes the receptionist advised that they had ordered the wrong belt and would have to get another on Monday and that we should keep the courtesy car and they would deliver my car back to me. I have no problem with this although annoying these things happen.
Last night I was looking at the bill and noticed the oil used is stated on the invoice as Diesel Oil 5W-30. My car has a petrol engine, what effect will Diesel Oil have on it and as far as I am aware Alfa recommend 10W-40 oil. Should I insist the oil is changed to Alfa's recommended oil?
I then looked up Auxilliary Belt which seems to be inside the engine. If this is starting to crack should the garage not replace it while they are doing the cam belt (obviously at extra cost)?
Sorry this is a bit long winded but as the car is still at the garage I would appreciate your comments so I can discuss it with them Monday morning.
