While my car is off the road waiting for the new crash panels I thought I would carry out a few service jobs on the engine.
For example I have had for some time new Thermal Ignition, and Cold enrichment valves so I will finally get those in - not sure the old one's are still working properly especially as the Thermal Ignition valve is loose and moves easily where the plastic joins the metal.
I thought I would also clean the K&N filter as I have a cleaning kit. I believe the cleaning interval is something ridiculous like 50K but mine looked dirty and an unbelievable amount of dirt came out of it after only 15k so my conclusion is that the cleaning interval suggested by the manufacturer is Horse s--t.!
Belts, Plugs, Filters, Fuels, Oils, additives etc..... Told you this might morph into servicing and service items.

agreed, the dirt doesnt magically hide somewhere so I cleaned mine every service and I used petrol and light machine oil.... I'll get my tin hat out again !
