Servicing the car - what parts do i need

Right lads & lassies.

As you know i bought a 1998 156 2.5V6.

Well the car did not have a full service history when i got it so i want to get a major service done including water pump & timing belt (For peace of mind)

What i want to know is -
Apart from timing belt & water pump, What other parts should i replace ?

To fill you in on the whole story, I have a contact off another car forum who is a parts manager with Fiat/Alfa and I asked him to recommend a list of parts.

He has given me the following list

Timing belt... 74.83
Tensioner pully... 151.90
Idler pully x2... 58.14
Waterpump... 173.62

Alternator/aux belt... 32.66
Tensioner pully... 136.32
Idler pully... 36.28
Idler pully... 54.97


I'll throw in oil, air filter and spark plugs.


What do we all think of that, Is there anything else that you would recommend getting done ?

Thanks in advance
Alan

Nothing really bud he has got you covered pretty well there to be honest. Maybe get the pollen filter done on the car if it has A/C but that be about it. Other than that seems to be ok.

Good starting point.

Get them to check all the CV boots
Check the suspension (the various arms) and especially the wear and tear on the bushes , both front and rear.

New Brake Pads maybe

Well i'm only buying the parts from him, will be going to tiAutos as there seems to be good feedback about them.

I've already checked the pads & theres plenty left in them.
I have however ordered new front & rear discs so i may be getting pads too.

Pic's to follow
