Re: Service and Tune EA SII
Depends what you're doing really.
A basic service (oil/filter change, fluid check/top up, brake/tyre check) can be done at home easy as.
Brakes can be changed at home without much effort, spark plugs are easy, coolant flushes aren't TOO tricky at home (though you need more pressure than the garden hose to do it properly)
Power steering flush can be done. Personally, I'd just jack the car up, disconnect the lines from the rack, drain the lot and refill.
What exactly do you plan to do?
The fuel filter on the EA is on the firewall I believe. Shouldn't be too hard to remove, but before you do bleed the pressure from the fuel system. Under the boot carpet is a cover with 6 screws on it. Take the cover off, unplug the fuel plug and crank the car for 10 seconds after it stalls.
