This is a great idea. Can you clean up the thread though so it only contains actual DIY's or useful information and not "subscribed" threads?

Thanks for taking the time to put this together.

Frank,

Thanks for putting this together!


Not sure how useful mileage information is,to be honest...


The key words are pretty good for search!

Let me ask a different way then:
Should any of the existing items in post #2 here be removed for any reason?

Thanks.

I would have thought the items in post #2 might be good for new owners to get an idea of timescales in the cars life for these jobs. I'm sure it's intended to be an approximation, and not a schedule as such.

Happy to be corrected though

If anyone, who wrote a "subscribed" post here, would like me to delete their post, please drop a Thanks or Like to this post.

FYI, an alternative to posting simply to subscribe, is to use the "Thread Tools" link atop each page in the thread.

I never made one, it's basically the same as you would perform to get to the cam position sensors, all three are back there for each bank. Not a whole lot to write up, except that it's a pain in the ***. I think theres a thread about it.. lemme search and see.
