My car says L2 in the odometer when start up. Thats a service thing right. Yeah..with my luck it is. Well i dont have my car back yet but i plan on having it serviced. A real good one. I dont know if it has ever been serviced in the 6 years of exictance. Seriously. When I took the "Original" filter out. It was old and I mean old, full of sand and brown. When i dropped it to tha floor it laid a 8 cm hiogh pile of sand. Thsi could not have been good. that is y I think the service has never been done. 97 000 Miles, No service, and running like a dream. What a car.
What should I have done. To keep it running like this.??

L2 is a "Time For a Scheduled Service" thing.

Has the timing belt ever been changed? If it breaks, or the tensioner lets the belt slip, you're really going to regret having the car. Thousands of dollars in damage will be done to the engine.
Complete timing belt service with tensioner, idler, water pump, thermostat, and serp belt, and coolant flush cost me about $550.
Also for your mileage a transmission service is due if not done at 90k, and spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, brake fluid flush, and... well, that's about $1,000 in service right there.
I'd put the timing belt and related items at the top of the list, since 97k is at least 20k too late for the belt and water pump. Fuel filter and spark plugs made a big difference when changed on my 100CS.
This, along with a normal oil change and a couple bottles of Techron would get you up to date I'd say.

you should do everything in those schedules (only once) set your "stake in the ground" and then follow the service schedules.
