    Default 406 Coupe service intervals, what to look for?

    Just a few questions:

    1.At 150000km odd what is there to look for when looking at a 406 Coupe?
    2. At what interval should the timing belt have been done?
    3. Manual vs. Auto, things to look for?
    4. I believe the auto box is a sealed unit, yes? At what point do things start to go wrong and what sort of serving do they require.
    5.Multiplexed wiring, yay/nay?
    6. Finally... I guess, what sort of service costs on average are you looking at for one of these cars?

    Sorry for all the questions, my dad and I might be looking at one, I just want to get the heads up.

    Autobox usually lasts exactly 160K.

    Really.

    Budget for a manual swap. I'm itching to do one, as the "it's too hard brigade" need to STFU.

    Yeah, I've been poking around these forums and that would appear to be the case. The 406 coupe is still a lot of car for the money despite the dodgy box.

    Everything else is just '90s Pug. Heater core, blower fan, rear bushes, front bushes, motor mounts, rack boots, outer tie rod ends, ball joints, brake hoses, AC service, rear muffler, catalytic, dash cluster.

    Yeah, I was under the impression that was the case except the body panels, etc which are mostly Pinafarina.

    I was advised to look for leaky cam boxes...

    The cam covers and sump on my D8 coupé leaked - simple fix - remove, clean, new sealer and reassemble.

    My current coupé (D9) has not had any leaking problems at all.

    The belt have to be done @ 120000.
    Do the water pump as well because it is cheap to replace it when the timing belt is done.
    If it is a D8 make sure that they do the upgrade on the pulleys as well and replace all the bearings.
    The D9 models have a better auto gearbox than the D8 with few upgrades.
    It is an awesome car and at about $10000 is a bargain even if you have to replace the gearbox in the future.
    I believe that here in Hobart is a black manual with red interior coupé for sale for less than $8000. Do a search.
    Cheers

    Thanks Art406, I've done a search in most of the usual places unless you're talking about this forum? I would be willing to travel for the right car.
