List of issues raised by OPC

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

My 2002 C4S (50K) has just had a major service with OPC. They raised a list of issues, but some of these seem a little excessive to me.

* Leaks from Front and Top of engine - Reccomend clean off test drive and recheck

* Gearbox Sump Gasket leaking - replace.

* Cup holder sticking - replace.

* Front diff. Seals leaking - investigate.

* Handbrake button rattle. - replace.

* Coolant leak from nearside Rad. - replace.

* Slight leak from rear main and intermediatte seals.

* Front brake disks heavily lipped - replace.

When quizzed about the issues, I was told that only the rad leak need be attended to soon, the rest were all noticed as a result of the car on the ramp and leaks being spotted, and I got the impression that they weren't that critical!. I was told to keep an eye on the garage floor for leaks. I rarely use the car (once a week) and have done about 6k in the past year, when it is otherwise garaged. Would you suggest I investigate these further, or can they be safely taken with a pinch of salt, considering some of the points raised, such as cupholder sticking and handbrake button rattle! Or is that just me being cynical?

They should inform you of the leaks, etc on car, weather they're critical or not, especially since you were in for a major service. Part of the service is an inspection and they're simply reporting to you what they found. You would probably be upset if they had serviced the car but didn't report any leaks, and then you noticed one. You would think they didn't even look the car over and probably be ever more upset.

Of all that they mentioned, I would consider having the transmission pan leak and the coolant leak fixed and possibly your brakes. The coolant leak should be addressed as that has a possibility of leaving your stranded or causing engine damage if the leak suddenly gets worse. Your transmission probably hasn't been serviced anyways and replacing the gasket will mean draining and filling with fresh fluid. You could also ask them to replace the ATF filter while they're in there. You could probably put off doing your front diff seals for a while unless they're REALLY leaking.
