Re: Anyone know how much an 80,000km Service Costs?
Yeah they will have to colour match so usually they will spray from quarter and rear quarter to make it look right. Service if all is running fine do it yourself. Check transmission fluid level and colour there is a nut you undo and stick your finger in is should be pretty level with the nut if its full. If its black change immediatly and i garantee you it will be black. That will cost aroun $200 for a complete 15 litre flush and a filter change. Better than $150 for 4 litres and filter change also peice of mind its been fully flushed.
Oil and filter i change every 5,000 km with a synthetic italian oil 10w - 40. Air filter is BMC so i wash it when it gets dirty and re oil. I check power steering fluid and around steering rack for leaks. Shocks jump up and down on ya car see if there stuffed, replace if neccesary. Check for noisey idle pully bearing's I hade mine go just after 80,000km. Tighten extractor bolts they get loose very quickly also check intake manifold bolts. Check exhaust for leaks you should hear it flutter if its leaking. I had mine leak not long after I got the new one put on. Tightened up the gasket been good as gold ever since.
May as well fill up window washer bottle why your there. Also carry a spare serpnetine belt you never know when they go. Check you current one for cracks and wear and replace if needed. Fuel filter can be replaced if you like too. Run your baby on optimax or synergy 8000 for a while if you dont all ready to clean those injectors.
If your feeling a miss you may aswell change all spark plugs with those out of the XR6 and run some good high quality leads.
Look thast what I would do. I dont think taking it to them would be good. I think you would be better off doing it yourself and then you know its all been done and not bullshit, also lets your get to know your car and a hell of a lot cheaper.
Have I forgot anything guys. Just look in your book under the 80,000 section it will tell you what to check. But yeah hope this helps
Just make sure you check your tranny im serious. I know so many who have had very very black fluid in there and sludge on the bottom of the pan, stupid sealed boxes thats all i have to say.
Talk soon mate
