    Hi,

    going to book my q7'in for a major service(on long life)

    (just passed its MOT with no advisories)

    I had a look at the service book, as far as I can see the following is needed.

    DUST and POLLEN filter

    OIL/ OIL FILTER change using long life oil

    FUEL FILTER changed .

    Inspection

    Have I missed anything that needs to be changed ?



    thanks in advance

    I really wouldn't carry on with long life servicing ...

    Especially as you have:-

    Your engine is timing chains, 4 in total, they are located at the back of the engine. Do a google for SSP327_Audi engines - Chain drives there are two parts to file (first 2 hits in google).

    With long interval oil changes the chains can stretch and tensioners wear quicker and chain rattle can occur (do a google for V6 TDI chain rattle). It's then engine and gearbox out to to change all and bill is not cheap!

    There are other reasons as well to avoid LL servicing perhaps have a google ...

    As Gup says, ditch the longlife, more than likely your oil has been in there since 59k-ish.

    My A6 is on fixed which is 10k/1 year. Hopefully the bits I've had done between 59k and 79k will give you an insight to whats needed.

    No problem - not sure if they helped or not!

    Read the ssp docs Gup posted, they're a good read to the insight of the depths of your car if you have a few mins to browse.
