Hello  welcome5

The book says 60.000 but when your buying secondhand would advise changing anyway using a kit (belt and idler/tensioner pulleys) unless you have a proper garage receipt with date and mileage not word of mouth.

Hard starting when hot maybe faulty coolant temperature sensor, scanning for fault codes will confirm.

2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspächer booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.

Hi Greg

This is my interpretation from FordEtis site.

MK1 TDI

11-1994 to 03-2000 = 60.000 or 5 years

MK2 TDI (pd engine)

04-2000 to 05-2003 = 40.000 or 5 years Belt & Tensioner/Idlers

06-2003 to 03-2006 = 60.000 or 5 years Belt Only
 
     "             "            = 120.000 or 10 years Belt & Tensioner/Idlers
