It's an easy job to do yourself if you have a set of vaccum gauges (plus 5mm adapters) and a free hour or so.. Important to get the engine good and warm before you start the process. It's much easier if you have 4 gauges as well but it can be done with fewer gauges but takes longer and is not as easy.
