bought satria 2002, fuel injected, from 2nd hand car owner. I plan to go outstation to cameron from KL soon, so i need a fulls service to the car. I dunno much about car as this is my first car. What i did was i filled up the battery with battery water. I check the radiator water level it seems to contain some greenish stuff which i believe is coolant, it is attaching to the yellow metal cap which says do not open while its hot.

i do not plan to go to Authorised Servis Center mainly because i have heard a lot of bad comments about them already.

I am wondering at 28,500, the car steering is shaky when idle/free gear, a bit of squeeking sound when break hard.

I was thinking of doing the follow maintenance on my car, any sifus can correct me ? which are the things i left out and the things i have overdone

  • oil,fuel,air filter change
  • brake pads change and brake disc check
  • adjust idle timing(does this exists?)
  • change oil to semi synthetic and add tufoil.
  • clean the fuel injectors

please advise. :) :D
p/s: my car is satria 1.3 Fuel injected.

ahh... 30k only minor service should be done (assuming the car is accident free)

just change oil, oil filter & air filter (if necessary)
no need to put tufoil if u are planning to use semi-syn.. save $$$
check spark plugs
change brake pads and brake fluid
check coolant level.. oso check if there's any rust and sludge..
use v-power to clean injectors (save $$$) u can service the injectors later, car only 28k!
adjust idle timing (should be around 800rpm)
check balancing and alignment (want to go uphill/downhill tis is important)

not much to be done just wait till 40k for major service :D
