Hello Marc,

Billy :

I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.

Billy :

Billy :

which engine do you have (1,5????

Billy :

what mileage is on the vehicle till now?

Billy :

generally is the vehicle driven roughly (very high rpms and such) or normally?

Billy :

Get back to me on these, and i will give accurate service intervals.......

Billy :

Regards,

Billy :

Billy

Customer :

engine is the 1.5l. vehicle is driven normally. mileage is : 3000miles(5000 kms).

Billy :

a new vehicle........

Billy :

Very well then:

Billy :

To keep it new you need to do the following:

Billy :

- replace engine oil and filter every 6000 km

Billy :

- replace coolant every two years

Billy :

- replace air filter, spark plugs every 20000 km

Billy :

replace transmission fluid, differential fluid, brake fluid, and timing every 50,000 kms

Billy :

Now for the inspection:

Billy :

Inspect the coolant, engine oil, brake pads, and belts every month.

Billy :

Replace brake pads, and belts as necessary (visual inspection will confirm wear and tear)

Billy :

Apply spray on grease on hinges (doors etc....) every year.

Billy :

These are the main maintenance intervals..........

Billy :

For any more info, or specific interval, ask away.......................

Customer :

does spec for every vehicle or especially for DAIHATSU TERIOS?

Billy :

for terios 1.5 although maintenance intervals do not vary a lot............only sometimes you have cars with lifetime oil for transmission like BMWs......

Customer :

what about Tie Rod, Ball Joint and shock absorber???

Billy :

On regular roads, these will live forever..........however, you may check yearly when you lift vehicle and check the whole underside.....and you may check once you get any suspension noise (knocks and squeaks...)

Billy :

Basically, this vehicle is very low on maintenance, so enjoy it........

Customer :

thank you!

Billy :

You are welcome!!!

Billy :

Good luck!

Billy :

Regards,

Billy :

Customer :
