Service Intervals

#1 Postby jdbosshogg » Tue Jan 20, 2009 5:17 am

Hi All ,

I lost my user manaul, and also the service manual for a 2.0 CRDi 4WD - in fact, the whole damm pack. Must have dropped out of the car somewhere. Anyway, my next service is past due, and with the economic situation at present, i can't afford the 420 euros that i paid last time at my garage (just oil and filters - couldn't beleive the price, so won;t be going back there angain!)

Can anyone tell me how often i have to replace the filters? My last service (66k km) replaced oil/air/cabin/diesel filters, plus changed coolant and gerabox oil as well as the engine oil. The car has now dobe 82k kms , so that's about 10k miles (16k kms).

BTW, i've never got my hands dirty on a car before, so wouldn;t knoe wher eor how to start doing this myself...

cheers !

Hi Boss
Well my Tucsons 2nd (The Big Service) was serviced by my local garage and he did a fine job and apologised profusely for not cleaning it but as it was below freezing this was understandable and also the reason it wasn't done.
I had used this garage in the past when responsible for a fleet of vehicles and all their servicing arrangements so he was good to me re my end price.
I supplied the wrong pollen filter (how unusual for me to get it wrong !) so I gotta do that but my oil, oil filter and air filter were ok- he supplied the fuel filter (Essential to change), the antifreeze and the brake fluid as my 2nd service required that the brake fluid and antifreeze be changed. Tucs need service every 10k miles or each year whichever is first. all items below are a must to change especially the pollen filters (but they can wait till I found a cheaper place to buy them see a mailing I placed yesterday. :) )

Labour was £ 54.00 But this was special price to me.Should be £135.00 2.5 hours work
Parts ex him £ 45.98
Vat @15% £ 15.00
Parts by Me
Oil £ 25.00 (Must be synthetic 0-30 or 5-40 )
Pollen Filt £ 5.97 (still to do I bought wrong one)
Oil Filter £ 8.36 (K & N fitted by me)
K&N Filter £ 28.98 But I will never have to buy another one ever guaranteed 100,000 miles

Total £183.29

So I am pleased cos I saved around £200 on my dealer and £230 against the predicted cost by the other garage.

So essentially thats it but to keep warranty you need a dealer stamp in the service manual here is where you can download the manuals for the diesel Tucson (european one)

Hope it all helps now France is fairly big where in France are you ? interest only Boss

Mine is CRDi 2.0 2WD.See attached Preventive Maintenance Schedule of our Tuc here in our country. I guess PMS varies depending on where you are located geographically (weather conditions).

CRDi:
Engine Oil Filter - every 5k km
Fuel Filter - every 20k km
Air Filter (for evaporator and blower unit) - every 20k km
Air Cleaner - every 10k km
Engine Coolant every 20k km

Not sure why they tell you to change the oil every 5000 km. Here in Europe it is every 15000 km, but as Itza says it should be synthetic.
Itza mentions in his post that you can use 0W30, but I think that you will find that is only for the petrols, my book says 5W40.
