18k service on 1.4

now completed this - myself!

no difficulties at all

changed oil/filter - Fiat Filter and Shell Helix 5w/40 synthetic 40
spark plugs - oe Fiat/NGK €41
checked all round on a ramp at Pit Start 22

lambda sensor failed in europe (contaminated fuel?) and got it diagnosed at Autohaus Kirsten in Germany who fully inspected the car, reset the service reminder and reflashed the ecu with updated map for €35

replaced lambda 35 at the weekend - all good now

Re: 18k service on 1.4

What about the Fiat Warranty? Doesn't doing the service yourself not comply!

car is LHD import and over 2 years old so warranty has now expired

however I used genuine parts and followed the service schedule, and car was inspected by Autohaus Kirsten

Just a few things I noticed.

You can get Selenia KPE + Filter for less @ Shop4parts and ditto for spark plugs
