    Fiesta Self-Service?

    Thanks ever so much guys :D You see with the spark plugs. I changed them myself just in the summer because at the service they never did. Turns out they were in the car since the beginning! I stumbled upon it because I had a missfire in the 4th cylinder. They were so old and brittle that the insulation broke and dropped over the cathode. :/ Thanks for all your help :) I think with you guys my fiesta will run for a long time :)

    Fiesta Self-Service?

    Hi, Since I'm not happy with how dealerships and shops deal with repair work here in Austria (bunch of frauds and scams going on) I'm considering servicing my Fiesta myself. It's a 2010 1.25L 60 HP straight 4 with around 42000ks on it (was an old ladies car wich I got around 3 years ago with 6000ks on it, she never really drove it), I'm sure you all know it :D. Now, I know how to do most of the mechanical work and am comfortable with reading my cars errors via the OBDII port, the only thing that bothers me is: I don't know what they do at each service rather than checking the oil, maybe the head gasket and scan it. Now here is my question: Does anyone know what has to be done at a yearly service of a fiesta? Thanks a lot. :D
