    How do i service my car ?!?!?

    Hi,

    I bought an 52 plate 2.2 SRI 80k for £2k which i think is a gd deal but anyway about 3 weeks ago and only the other day realised that the S**t head that sold it to me hadn't realised there was no coolant in it and i only realised wen the temp gauge was above 85ish where it shud b but now i'm worried and want to service it for peace of mind but have no skills in the mechanical department !

    So.... if any1 cud tell me how to do an oil change and anything else they think i shud do that wud b great.

    cheers

    best bet seeing as ur just starting out is to get a Haynes manual

    some good quality tools - Halfords Professional range is very good. some basic tools, ie trolley jack axle stands etc then take it from there

    Have a read through then see if u fancy tackling them yourself

    if not, where abouts are u based - maybe a local member could give u a walkthrough of whats involved

    Also, check the How-To section as this has most of the servicing jobs in there like spark plug & oil change etc.
