Q – What is the difference between pulling computer codes and a diagnostics?
A – Extracting codes from the automobile’s computer tells you what system a fault is in. It will not, however, tell you what the fault is most of the time. A diagnostics provided by a certified technician will identify and find the actual fault.
Q – Why are oil changes recommended every 3 months or 3,000 miles?
A – Automotive manufacturers may recommend a longer oil-life interval, but they are not the oil manufacturer. The oil manufacturer states the 3/3000 oil change recommendation due to the fact that oil, after running in a combustion engine, will become acidic.
Q – Can I go longer between oil changes with synthetic oil?
A – Yes, the range is set again by the oil manufacturer. We recommend Valvoline.
