Service intervals

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I know that the service intervals are every 6000 miles and a C service is every 36000 miles.

Is there a time limit on when a C sevice should be carried out.

Im thinking that belts may loose their flexibility over time and start to crack etc.

Any thoughts?

Regards

Pretty much - thats why it's 36000 or 3 years.

I do my belts and services based on time, not mileage - oil degrades, so does brake fluid and so on.

Mine usually get serviced twice a year, 1st around march, next oct/nov - even if they are 2 A services it doesn't cost a lot, considering its a supercar !

Always did my Esprit cambelt every two years regardless of miles.

I figure thats two winters, two summers, and some really high temp

time on the belt.

Mind you, i could not afford to skimp as i could not afford the rebuild.

Yeah - same as above and some too.

You have a car probably older than most on the road and capable of performing beyond...

A bit of oil and stuff never hurt and i hear it's relatively straightforward.

Thanks I thought as much.

Dont get me wrong I do get the car serviced regularly.

Its that I dont do the miles.

Its due a B but I'll get a C service done for peace of mind etc
