Hi all,

I have a 1.9 JDTM 16v Diesel with 100,000K on the clock. What preventative maintenance should I look to be carrying out on these cars?

I've already had trouble with the aircon, strange humming noise & an intermittent starting problem (key or key reader related). Only had the car 1 month so it hasn't been a great start...

EGR and MAP clean, EGR blank/ restriction. Fuel cleaner (long thread on diesel rhino), long drive/ additives to clean the DPF. Check the steering wheel fluid colour. Change the oil every 10,000miles (no the 20 as per the official countdown timer.
Waxoyl the front subframe, avoid booting it below 1,500rpm (less stress on the M32 gearbox).

Thanks guys, some good info there...had to google what the MAP sensor is though!

I've ran/running some BK44 (I think that's what it was called) through the system & cambelt, waterpump & tensioners were changed 2 weeks ago.
