Default 2002 Voyager 2.5 CRD SE Major Service Checklist

My car is 10 years old this year, 100,000 KM / 62,000 Miles on the clock.

During it's times, I have done regular oil and filter changes once a year + occasional brake pad changes. I have only encountered three issues:

  1. Needed to change the rear discs and pads because the hand brake pads would not hold tight enough.
  2. Needed to add A/C refrigerant as a lot had evaporated after eight years. The following year... the same problem. So last year I added "Cliplight Total Super A/C Leak Seal" and so far so good... I'll know by the end of this summer season...!!!
  3. Battery changed.... the previous one lasted 5-6 years
I have started getting together the bits and pieces I need for a big service which I would like to do either this summer or next. For the big service I am planning on the following:

  1. Usual oil and filters changes
  2. Adjust rear hand brake - after only three years it's not holding tight enough again...weird .... any thoughts anyone??
  3. Coolant flush - this has never been changed in 10 years
  4. Coolant pump - new pump as a preventative measure
  5. Hoses - replace as necessary
  6. Timing belt and pulleys - replace all
  7. Accessory belts - replace both
  8. Glow plugs - replace .. last winter the car struggled to start at temperatures between -10C to -20C / 14F to -4F
  9. Fix the console background lights - yep ... they blew a few years ago..!!!
  10. See if I can make one of the power mirror's waterproof... when it rains, the motor runs but there's not enough friction to turn the mirror...!!
  11. Install the rear and front parking detectors - I have an after market kit
  12. Change exhaust - not sure, will check when I am under
My questions:


  1. is there anything else that I should reconsider ... suspension, ball joints... etc...?
  2. are any special tools specific to this car needed for the above? I think for the timing belt pulleys...I'll use wire or something to lock them.
  3. does any one have any experience using accessory and timing belts from ebay (as opposed to Mopar or genuine ones)
Thank you, kkc.

1. I wouldn't bother with suspension components....replace them as and when they fail......you don't mention the fuel filter...I assume you will be replacing that.

2. I'd recommend a cam locking tool. It'll make the job alot easier. I borrowed a set of universal cam locking tools to do mine.

3. I got my cam belt kit from ebay. It was a genuine item from a dealer who used ebay at the time. As for accessory belts, I used pattern parts.

Yes, The user id was:- chryslerjeepdodgeshop

But I bought my timing belt kit from them over 2 years ago. I just searched ebay and it seems that they have not been active since late 2010 and are no longer a registered user.

However at the time I also contacted these guys The VM Diesel Specialist | Automotive, Marine and Industrial Diesel Engine | Repairs & Spare parts

They have a wide range of parts for the 2.5 CRD engine including timing belt kits, and were very helpful.
