Well, if you're anywhere local to Aylesbury, I would give Auto Torque a call for a quote? They email a proper written quote out before any work, useful for a comparison with the dealer?

Whereabouts are you Simon? The SST gearbox oil change is pricey, and I've travelled both times to have mine done.

From where you are I'd probably suggest APT in Lenwade, just your side of Norwich.

They did my second fluid change, and I drove up there on a Saturday morning and it was done while I waited. Drop Gary an e-mail on sales@ap-tuning.co.uk and he'll give you a quote.

Why not just buy the oils from Opie oils and then just go to your local dealer and get them to do the fluids change, that way you only pay for labour and you know they'll use the decent stuff you've provided...?

Im suprised most people dont do the oil change on the sst themselves, is it a warranty thing?

70k service schedule ??

Oddly there is no detailed service schedule of items to do/check etc in the handbook and google just gives the US schedules for maintenance.
I can't find one for UK cars so if anyone could direct me to what is required at 70K for the 2011 2.0L Ralliart Sportback GS it would be appreciated.
Many Thanks.
Brian.

I had a service done at 31k which was its 7th service and they classed it as "a 70k service" they changed gearbox oil and the regular checks.

Hi Brian

If you look back a page at my post 839, I detailed exactly what servicing our Ralliarts need, basically 2 services every year -

Full service inc SST (I paid Auto Torque £670) - full fluids service for engine, transfer box, rear diff and SST gearbox. Plus spark plugs, no air filter (have a HKS one), pollen filter and anti-freeze top up.

Full service exc SST (I paid Auto Torque £275) - full fluids service for engine, transfer box & rear diff. Plus pollen filter and anti-freeze top up.

All proper oils used, Titan Race Pro 5W/40 engine, Millers Gear transfer box, Shell Super 90 rear diff, Castrol DIA Queen SSTF BOT 341 SST.

I expect to pay for these 2 services every year with Auto Torque (10,000 miles or so); so £945 per year. They are local to you and me in Aylesbury.

For your car, if you haven't already checked, take off the rocker cover to check the cam chain both for wear and to see if it's the revised (recall) chain.

Have you also changed your fuel pump relay?

Any decent Evo/Ralliart specialist can advise you further - don't use a dealer!

Alistair

Cheers Alistair, very helpful.
Although its the 70k service ticket in the handbook the real mileage is just 40k, on from the 9k when I bought it. Servicing so far has followed the time interval but I am inclined to go mileage. Hence the question re the service items…I can then compare.
Fuel relay has been done.
Timing chain will be the original as it wouldn't have been done prior to my purchase. No warning lights ..yet ..!!
I use Carnetix in Melton Mowbray for all the servicing. Used them for years and years, still Becky and Glen. Lived just a couple of miles away until we move house last summer, now an hour's ride but wouldn't go anywhere else.
Regards
Brian.

Hi Brian

Okay, well I suggest -

Looking at the cam chain, not waiting for a warning light, which maybe too late for the engine (see posts 785 & 787).

A coolant change if it looks discoloured in the header tank.

A brake fluid if not done in last 3 years, good to upgrade to Motul, braided brake lines to replace the flexi ones (see post 828).

All the recall info - should be stamped and completed in your service book at the back (see post 783).
