Servicing a 55 plate, Terios sport .... advise please

Forum: 

Hi everyone, I'm Gary from Kent, I joined this forum for advise and tips, hope you're all willing to share your vast knowledge with a newbie.

Anyway, the wife has a 55 plate Terios Sport (the 13i model, not the new shape - which I personally don't think are as good).

We brought it new and to date has only got 10000 miles on it, but I want to carry out this service myself, now i have serviced loads of cars when i was younger (cortina's, capri's, Rover's & landy's) but never serviced a jap engine ......

So my question is this...

What parts do i need and how do i find out part numbers etc, main dealers generally are not interested unless you are getting them to service it or buying the parts off them, and paying 4 x the price for the privalidge.

I'm not tight, i just don't like getting ripped off.

Any leads would be greatly appresheiated.

Thanks.
Gary.

Don't like the new shape much.

I agree with you Gary. I prefer the old shape as well.

You can get all the parts and oils you need for your Terios from any decent Car Spares Outlet.
You will need your Reg No and that is about it.
Some spares outlets are cheaper than others - You will have to shop around a little - but they should be much cheaper that Genuine Daihatsu Spares.
The one thing you must NOT try to save money on is the oil.

Fully Synthetic 5/40 is about right. But some on here will say 10/40.
I personally use 0/40 Fully Synthetic in my Sirion Rally 4, but this is a high revving high lift cam engine.(And believe me it is not cheap)

So now it is up to you.

Good Luck.
