Re: Service interval

Interestingly, after a run of just over 100 miles, the next oil service due only fell by 50 miles. The distance to Adblue fill actually increased.
Full service is due in June this year.
Are these mileages actually set by the dealer?
My mpg seems to have dropped noticeably.

Re: Service interval

Apologies if this appears twice as I submitted similar message but it has not appeared. My oil service was done last Monday and at the same time balancer shafts replaced. The Service warning appeared just before the shafts squealed. After this work I checked and the screen told me I would need anoth...

Re: Oil dilution - advice please

When I got mine back from new brakes, new balance shafts etc the vehicle information says 4500 to next service, 4900 to Adblue fill. Is this a bit like "Distance to empty" and can get longer as you drive I wonder? This technology is amazing. My 1972 88" series 3 truck just soldiers on with services ...

Are there any good ones?

It is a fact that most people join forums when they have an axe to grind. I was just wondering if there are any owners on here who have not had any of the very major problems? It would be interesting if there was a survey and owners could list faults and especially if they have been repeated. I have...

Re: Diesel Exhaust Fluid Dosing Malfunction

Do you think you will do another 19200 miles before you need oil service? I don't think anyone on here as achieved anything like.

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

Checked it out and the shaft is supplied as a set of shaft and two bearings, and the separate parts are not itemised as they must never be fitted without the other relevant components. The outer race is changed, and the inner race is the ground section on the shaft. The rollers are in a split cage l...

Re: Engine replacing Balance Shaft

Got car back yesterday and all problems fixed. New rear discs and pads, new balance shafts. I think that Stratstone Aylesbury did this quickly. The car want in on Wednesday and the balance shafts were ordered for Thursday, meanwhile the brakes were done. It was out for a short road test on Saturday ...
