    Default Ferrari F430 Coupe

    Hi all,

    I have to say thanks to the information/detailed on this forum I've utilised it before purchasing my first Ferrari F430.

    The spec is as follows:-

    2005 Coupe
    Grigio Titanio external
    Grey leather internally
    34k
    Full Ferrari Main dealer service history
    F1 transmission
    Carbon Sports seats
    rear camera / parking sensors.
    Screen with Sat Nav
    Upgraded Hi-Fi + Amp

    I'll be going through the parts/upgrades/maintenance to enhance my driving experience during ownership of this magnificent piece of engineering even though almost 15 years old.

    F1 Transmission problems

    During a drive I was stuck at traffic lights unable to select 1st gear. Oh dear, key off, restart - limped it back.
    I could hear the pump slowing down when the drivers door opened, thought the pump was at fault, not strong enough.
    It was the original one dated 2004 manufactured by Denso.

    Replaced with a new one and all sorted.
    The pump on time logged was 7273 minutes or 121h21m.

    Purchased and installed the Scud ing swiss Advanced version of the relay, to monitor the pump cycles and general health of the F1 system.

    If anyone is interested in rebuilding the original motor brushes dimensions are 8x5.7x(17mm or shorter)

    F1 Oil Change

    The oil hasnít been changed since 2012 when a pipe burst with a fluid leak.

    The oil system on the F430 shares both the gearbox actuator circuit and the e-diff, no real way to completely empty and refill.
    What I did was cycle the following:-

    Left it over night so the accumulator would drop all pressure allowing oil back into the oil tank.(lid open)

    Undo the feed pipe from the tank to the pump block, this drains oil from the tank, this is approx 300-350ml of fluid.
    Connect all hoses back up and fill up the system to the correct level.
    Go for a drive > to cycle fluid
    I repeated oil change 4 times.
    Granted it doesnít remove all fluid, but at least its refreshed.

    Once the Tank had new fresh fluid in the clutch system was bled via the screw, the clutch system was under pressure during this, you need a diagnostic computer for this.

    Oil I used was Petronas CS Selespeed.
