My EF didn't come with its service booklet. Does anyone have a copy of what should be done at each service?

I'm not concerned about the minor stuff, oil, plugs, brake pads etc its mainly major stuff that would need to be done.

My falcon has done 170,000.. I'm after info for the 150,000 to 200,000 range, its a 1994 EF.

Cheers
Andrew

What else is there to do on a service apart from changing plugs,oil and filters.Anything else would be considered a repair.
Its personal preference anyhow, change the oil every 5000 instead of 10000 and the motor will last longer.
Shorter service intervals means a longer working life, and definitley give the trans a service at least every 10000 km which then saves trying to flush burnt oil out(keep it clean)

That's insane.
basically you change oil and filter every 10-15k do all the minor checks brakes etc.
5k oil changes are a waste. If you want to look after the engine use Mobil1 or similar synthetic oil.
I think from memory the 30k includes repack front hubs and change plugs.
The 50k services are the Transmission. plus minors.
The 100k service is the major one. new belt, diff oil, new hoses etc.
