    Long trip coming up, servicing and things to check question

    Hi

    My first post with a question. I couldn't find a list of things to check on the forum, so I will ask and then compile a good list :-)

    I am driving from Brisbane to the Great Ocean Road in two weeks, and have been going over the car. ( Bought it recently off my dad, and I know he serviced it regularly and didn't treat it hard).

    Its a 1994 300tdi Auto, uses no oil and has been serviced regularly.

    What I have done so far:
    Oil/Filter Change
    New Injector Pump
    New Rubber Donut on tail shaft
    greased all places
    Brake fluid flush
    New timing belt
    new fan belts

    the transmission was rebuild about 8 years ago and my mum has been driving it, so it should still be pretty healthy

    What else should I check?

    Thanks

    Few things come to mind.


    • Cooling system, radiator, hoses in good condition? Does it have a low water alarm?
    • Check all wheel bearings, re grease them if needed
    • Diff and auto oil levels
    • Uni joints
    • Tyres and spare


    I love my 300Tdi really good cruiser on the highway, enjoy your trip. If you have any dramas down Melbourne way yell out.

    thanks for the ideas. i will let you know if I need help.

    We are going to phillip island and then across to the great ocean road. I was thinking of camping at Devils Kitchen, but I can figure out if you can take your 4WD there anymore
