Hi

I recently purchased a 2007 Civic Type S with the 2.2 Diesel engine. It has done 150k and has a good service history. However, I want to do a complete service for my own piece of mind. I have only owned petrol cars before so am unsure if there is anything diesel specific that I should consider. Here is my list so far; is there anything anyone can think of to add, check or even remove?

Thanks in advance

Oil
Oil Filter
Air Filter
Fuel Filter
Pollen Filters
Coolant
Brake Fluid
Transmission Fluid
Inspect Drive Belt/Timing Chain

I reckon you've got most of it there.

It is a chain driven cam and I think you might regret trying to inspect it - it requires quite a bit of work to get to it.

If it isn't rattling and you continue to use the right oil (0W-30 fully synthetic) then I wouldn't worry about the chain.

Oh - have a look on here for a "how to" on the fuel filter - it's quite a tricky job because it's tucked away at the back of the engine bay.

Defo include the EGR valve, whilst you have access to the inlet manifold, take a peek and see how much gunk lines the walls. The gunk gets worst the closer its gets towards the head. I recently de-coked my inlet and it made a huge difference, like having a remap!
