[Filters & Oil] Service
#1
Hey folks

This is not so much a problem more a request(plead) for some advise. My van is in bad need of a service, it's a straight 1.9 diesel without AC or anything remotely aimed at driver comfort.

I've decided I want to do a major service so other than these below what else needs doing/changing?

Oil
Oil filter
Fuel filter
Air filter

I don't need to check/replace the brakes as I replaced discs, pads, drums, shoes and cylinders (Yes they all needed replacing) about 3 months ago. Oh yes and the brake fluid was changed as most of it ended up on the drive.

The heater plugs and cables were also changed, along with the backbox which fell off and the windscreen. This bloody van has cost me a fortune recently... At least my magic tree still smells fresh!!

Anyways..

It's not had a service for about 18 months/15k miles (don't judge me please, other things keep falling off the van) would it be advisable to put some cheapo oil in and run it for a while and then change it for some decent stuff and replace the oil filter again? Are these engine flush things worth it?

Also would I need to change the gearbox oil, coolant, PAS fluid?

Are there any pitfalls I should avoid while doing this? Any advise is greatly appreciated!!!
2005 Enterprise 600 1.9D - It did 85 once but started to smell funny.
