Hi all, I am after some advice.

I am about to service the car, out of interest how much would you expect to pay for the following goodies?:

Oil filter
Air filter
Spark Plugs
Set of leads

Would you also replace distributor cap / points / condenser? Anything else I have missed that you would look at replacing on a Panda? Don't worry about brakes as these are ok.

The car runs ok. The car warms up and idles fine but every minute or so the engine kind of struggles a bit but then goes back to normal idle. Is this normal? The car has also stalled when slowing down (just) a couple of times in the extreme cold. But hey, it was cold.

Would appreciate your input.

VAcuum advance unit on the distributor - there is a thread about it somewhere! causes a lot of bother for something so stupidly easy to replace. . . . .

Martin change the geabox fluid, oil/grease all the locks & underseal the floor of the car inc all the brake fuel pipes to prevent corrosion.
