Hi, I will getting my brother-in-law to service (full) my car within the next few weeks. Question is, what should I be looking at buying, oils/ filters etc?

My car is a Peugeot 2005/ 55 plate 307 2.0 HDi 136 BHP DW10BTED4.

Chassis No: 84318932

I have already sourced a filter kit is this one is correct...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/307-2-0-HDi-136-HP-Filter-Kit-Oil-Air-Fuel-Cab-Auto-A-C_W0QQitemZ250574662152QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item3a5769ea08#ht_541wt_939

What oils/ lubricants etc do you recommend me getting?

Under a budget, hence the reason why I'm sourcing all the items myself from around the internet. I can search (and have) the internet for oils etc but would like to know what you guys would recommend me buying to get my car into shape. Thanks in advance :)

Don't skimp on cheap parts - it's a seriously false economy.

You want a genuine Peugeot or a MAHLE oif Purflux oil filter, low ash FAP compatible 5w40 synthetic oil, a decent air filter, good quality long life (red) coolant, genuine fuel filter, any cabin/aircon filter will do as it's not terribly critical, and decent Dot 4 brake fluid, such as Lockheed.

Then you need the book stamping - I got my stamp made by an ebay seller for £6 ;-)

Just chuck 'rubber stamp' into ebay - loads'll come up and many will make them to your own text and design. Mine reads...

XXX Automotive
Mobile PSA specialists
Phone XXXXX XXXXXX
email [email protected]

...in nice flowery text.

Some ebay sellers also deal in new peugeot service books, with as many stamps as you like, so you can insert some imaginary dates and mileages, though this costs rather more.

Ok, I have sourced my filters & oils, my service book reads 1 x servic at 20,000 miles with a peugeot dealership & 1 x service at 61,000 so it's been missing some TLC quite badly. May I add that the 61,000 service was BS because it was done by the dealer I purchased the car from & without going into too much detail, he was a f****** cowboy.

The previous owner had work done on the car like new turbo, discs, pads etc leaving the receipts but no stamps on the book & it's been into peugeot for diagnostic tests and all the work that was required to be done as a result of that test was done at the back end of last year.

Taking all this into account do you think anything else might need doing, e.g. coolant change etc. Particulate was checked last September and was fine but I will have it topped up in a couple of months.

You're due a cambelt and bottom pulley this year by dint of the cars age, unless it's been done already.
According to the service manual for a 2.0 hdi 136 the cambelt isn't due until 140,000 or 10 years under nornal conditions or 110,000 or 10 years arduous conditions.

Is this right or am I reading it wrong, mines done 65,000?

Got all the filters - Air / Pollen / Fuel / oil from Peugeot for £55

Got a 5ltr tub of Total Quartz Anti Pollution 5W30 oil from Peugeot for £31

Just need to get some decent coolant & Dot 4 brake fluid and I'm all done.

In the next couple of months I'll then send it down to Sunwin for a diagnostic and vehicle health check (£46) as well as having the FAP filter fluid levels checked.

Chopper is going off the usual car maintenence guidelines of 5 years for a cambelt. Most of us DIYers ignore the fact that new cambelts CAN go fine for 5 years longer than previously, but its still not worth skimping on in my eyes as if it goes. You WILL know it.

70k or 5 years, whichever comes sooner. I will always stick to that.

Probably be looking at £150-£200 I would guesstimate.

Cheers, that doesn't seem too bad :thumb:
To be fair it was a complete guess so don't be surprised if I'm wrong. Haven't used a garage in years.

Basically parts should be around £50 and then the labour should be between 1-2 hours

You're more likely to wake up getting a head job from Lord Lucan that have the belt survive 10 years. Certainly the belt doesn't live that long on a 407 with the same motor, hence most owners learning from the experiences of the unfortunate few and replacing it at 5.

I dont mind getting the timing belt done before it's recommended date, but it seems a little extreme getting it done in half the required time or less than half the required mileage.

When I went to Peugeot last year with my 04 307 hdi 110 they told me to get that done at 90,000 which in fairness is the mileage I was planning to get my current one changed at which at around 10,000 miles a year will take me until the middle of next year probably.

Anyhow, thanks for the advice regarding the timing belt, all reality tells me that it will be most likely done beginning of next year (75,000 miles & just over 5 years old)
