Interesting, then the oil would be at fault if it was mfg spec'd and too thin assuming it was changed as per the OM.
Question if that was in fact the case [what I mentioned above] what would happen?
If a motorist is using basic mineral oil//5w-20,like above....I will say.....change it every 3k,at the dealer with a coupon,and save the receipts.........because you might just need them using cheap bulk oil.
The above repair was 10k,of which Kathy paid as far as we know....2k.
