I live in Bristol UK, do all my own work so can't recommend any one.

What is the problem?

I live in Bristol and have approached a garage that worked on our company vehicles. They have worked on the 3.l diesel engines and were happy to service mine. What work did you need to have done ?

about every 3000 miles is about right, use a good semi synthetic oil.i use millers but everyone has their own preferences.i took mine to a gearbox specialist and had em drain n fill it as a precaution,it smelt old but the guy said that the gearboxes in these are bullet proof.id be keen to do the timing belt first as if this goes it would be very costly to fix the aftermath.
