Service your diesel

Hi Tags - I suggest you give it a go - most diesels are easy to service but be prepared for the black oily stuff - diesel engine oil is realy black and stains your skin - buy a box of mechanics rubber gloves for around a fiver per 100.
What you'll need.
1. Fuel filter removal tool
2. Sump plug socket (square)
3. New sump plug washer (renaults are notorious for leaking at the sump plug)
4. 5 litres of good engine oil - I suggest you go for at least a semi-synthetic oil .
5. Oil Filter
6. Air filter.
7. Fuel filter
8 Pollen filter
Although you may have to buy a few tools you will still save money - if you have any doubts there are many people on here glad to help
I suggest you go to a good motor factors who will be able to supply all of the above as they are selling this stuff day-in and day-out
