hi, I'm due a service, I'm wanting to change the oil sump as its looking a little crusty. Apart from oil and air filter. What are the regular items to change on this engine? The cam belt was supposedly changed when we bought the van a year ago.
Hi westy77.The cam belt was supposedly changed when we bought the van a year ago.
Carelessly, or intentionally? I wonder.Annoyingly the motorhome dealer we bought from lost all the service and hand books so I have no past history either.
My apologies, that should have read..........."The teeth on the cambelt", and not "The "V"s on the multi groove belt" as above.The "V"s on the multi groove belt should be prominent, and not look flattened or worn, and, there should be no signs of cracking or perishing at all.
Carelessly, or intentionally? I wonder.
Most are kept either in a folder/wallet supplied by the converter for the habitation appliances, or in the Fiat handbook wallet. I can understand the dealer removing them before putting the MH on display, but not losing them...............unless they had reason to hide something.
Sorry Westy, but I'm a bit of a cynic.
What brand oil is best for the 2.8JTd and what rating, plus how much will it need including for the filter?
Been out and got fuel, air and oil filters plus 6ltr of 10w-40, going to get this lot done and book it in for belt and bits. Just hoping for a dry day next week. In the meantime I have my new sump and as Fiat is part of the Chrysler group and these sumps like to rust as soon as they see daylight I have painted it in Mopar blue engine paint
