Advice needed please 1.6d hdi


I've searched the forums but not found anything that relevant so hope you can help.

Im going to be carrying out a full service on my wifes cooper r56 1.6hdi.

My question is, is there anything that i can do or need to do as a precautionary measure to further the life of this engine? Or anything i should replace?

I was thinking cleaning egr valve etc?

Its just coming up to 95k miles so want to look after it as best as we can!

Any help is much appreciated thanks.

Cleaning the EGR certainly wouldn't hurt. I would also change the fuel filter if you haven't already done so or were planning to.

Good luck.
