Love those fuel injected EA82 cars.
Stay on top of the timing belts (every 60 thousand miles), and if and when you replace them, I recommend leaving the covers off. Then a job that takes several hours turns into a 30 minute fix. But if you do happen to snap a t-belt, it's not too big a deal, the EA82's are non-interference so no permanent damage.
Other than that, the eventual oil leaks coming from old, dry seals and gaskets are the worst offenders.
Regarding a maintenance manual, here's the cover of the Haynes Manual for your Loyale. It's decent and helpful. You can find them all day long on ebay for $10 or so:
Good luck, and enjoy your Loyale.
