Re: How far over in kms should we exceed before service


I can't see why it wouldn't be any less relevant 6yrs on ...

So had my 30,000km (@ 28,650) service done 19/4. Then did my own oil (Castrol Magnatech Proffessional 15W40) at about 34,000km at end of June.

Now driven about 40,300km 1/8 and I'm thinking a 40,000km service should be almost due now. Or, do you think I could hold off a lil while longer seeing as though I've done 6,000km Isa to Sydney return in 3wks?

Any comments on the 40,000km service I should know about too? Noticed it listed changing differential oil plus a few extra inspections. How will I know if the dealer completes all the checks and changes it should?

Cheers,
Ben

Re:


To answer the original question, I very rarely go over very far at all, plus I get oil & filter changed mid service interval, so that there's no way a manufacturer can allege the vehicle hasn't been maintained properly.

Eg. Exy has 10k service intervals. I get oil & filter 5,000km after book service
      Ute has 15k service intervals. I get oil & filter 7,500km after book service

Ben,

Regardless of the oil used, stick to the intervals listed in the book as a MINIMUM and get it serviced on time wherever possible.

Would you buy a used vehicle with a haphazard service history or missed services? I sure wouldn't! A well looked after used vehicle with a comprehensive service history is always going to sell quicker & command a price premium, not to mention increase the likelihood of trouble free motoring.

You will also find in the service manual, that every manufacturer has recommendations relating to additional/supplementary servicing for special use/arduous conditions such as;

- Constant high speed driving
- Operation in constant high temperature environment
- Operation in constant cold temp environment (snow)
- Constant stop/start & short distance driving

The first two certainly apply to my Exy, so I have my oil & filter replaced mid service as recommended by the manufacturer.

Regular oil changes are far cheaper than a new engine!
