The service that the dealers miss?

Hi all!

So my car is 4 years old now, between 55-60k on the clock.

I just wanted to see what maintenance you have all done for your cars of this age or mileage?

So should the EGR Valve be being cleaned? Should the MAF be being replaced? Should it be driven at 3k revs for 20 miles to clear the DPF?

Advice and input would be appreciated!

Coolant temp checked for possible thermostats replacement

If they need replacing get them to check the crankcase breather and after run a diagnostics test on the dpf back pressure

Don't know where you are based but go to a good indie, Darren wood Stockport or birds Buckinghamshire

Thanks, my coolant temp seems spot on.

Will they clean the EGR valve there?
