My car was in Dave's shop from September 14th to September 24th. At no point was Dave able to guess as to what happened to cause the issue. He made a suggestion as to a solution, and I had him try it. $1,100 later, the issue was still not fixed. Dave made another suggestion, even saying "If this were my car, this is what I would do". Another $750 later, the issue was still not fixed. So at 1:30 pm on a Friday I asked Dave to remove the transmission again so I could send the parts to the manufacturer. He said he would have to wait until Monday to even start working on it, despite the fact that his shop is open all day Saturday and until 6:00 pm on Friday. He said he always has a lot of walk-in business and that he needed to get those people back to work on Monday. I thought, given the fact that my car had already been at his shop for 9 days, and considering my expenditures, that my car might be given priority over a walk-in.
Tips & Advices
You should change your oil filter whenever you change your oil, that is, approximately every 7,500 miles.
A oil filter is a device that helps remove contaminants from motor oil as it passes through the engine. A pump pushed the oil through the filter where it is strained and goes back to the engine.
High-mileage oil contains special conditioners that are said to help prevent gaskets from drying out and thus preventing leaks. This can be beneficial to engines with many miles on them.
Synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil, but the price is offset by the need for less frequent oil changes due to the oil’s durability.
Tools needed to change your own oil include jack stands or ramps, a wrench, an oil filter wrench, an oil drip pan, funnel, replacement oil filter, and replacement oil.
