    My 1.8tqs has just turned 94k so she'll be needing a service soon, whats the best grade of oil for this engine as all the books at work list 10w40 semi, and what else should i do to keep her in good condition. (water pump tensioners and belt replaced 1k ago)

    pas fluid, brake fluid, coolant

    tbh... just do what needs to be done. 94k isnt a lot of mileage anyway, just carry out the servicing thats necessary if you care enough and if you really want it to be bullet proof, do the non service schedule items too
