Service runs every 3,750 miles
If you look in the owners manual there should be a separate service maintenance booklet explaining all the things that get done in each of the services.
If I recall, only the 15K intervals are any REAL services other than just an oil change and a few inspections.

You should change the oil AT A MINIMUM of 2X per year (ie: every 6 months)

My PERSONAL opinion is that synthetic oil can be run and changed at 5 to 6K intervals. This is what I have done in my former BMW, my current LEXUS IS 250, and my NEW Z.

Once the Z is broken in (approx 1,200 to 1,500) you can consider changing the oil and start running synthetic.

Hope this helps and enjoy the Z

My 06 cobalt has 55000 miles. ive had regular oil changes but im not sure what is done during a tune up. what parts are changed during a tuneup


please explain what you mean by tune up?? now to this old grease monkey that means fancy exhaust ,webber carb ,high lift cam and grind valves in ,polished ports ect ,so i assume you mean a service .Now this depends on the service as a service means different things to different mechanics ,now a dealer fitter will only change oil /plugs and filters as this is the most profitable for the dealer and the mechanic whos good with a pen for his bonus.But to an old fleet fitter like myself then a service is a lot more ,with a grease gun/oil can ,inspection and manual adjustment of rear brakes .Clean and grease the light bulbs ,in fact best part of a days work for one truck ,so please be more specific

Changing engine oil every 5000 KM or every 2500?


The service duration is affected by many things.. If you are driving in a dusty atmosphere or doing a lot of high RPM but low gear driving, change the oil every 2500kms. if you do mainly highway driving with low rpm but top gear, change the oil every 5000 kms. As a rule, I always replace the oil filter at every oil change even though toyota says you dont have to.

Warranty question. This is probably a stupid question but here it is. I know in order to get warranty work done you must have kept up with scheduled maitenence. Is there a certain window you have to get...


No that should not be a problem. The dealer should still warranty its product. Plus, for the most part, they will assume that you are getting serviced somewhere else, example oil changes. this should not keep the warranty from being good. Now if there is a severe problem you might have a problem.

I just bougt a BMW 630 teher is no manual book in


my '06 325i, has been serviced (oil changed) by the dealer every 17,000 miles, it runs a full synthetic oil. look at your tun signal switch there should be a small knob in it that rotates, rotate it up and look at the center dash, keep rotating until it says oil then push the switch in the end of the turn signal switch it should then show you how many miles till next oil change, all service info can be found in this manner, when some kind of service is due you will see a small triangle with and exclamation point (!) in it on the center display, if you have a navi system the bottom of the screen will say "Service Due!"

2004 Chrysler Sebring problems


That dealer is ripping you off. Ask around to find a good repair shop.
Just for the heck of it, I called an auto parts store, and the cost of the timing belt is around $36.00 and the sensor is about $100.00.
Different shops charge different labor rates. But it shouldn't cost anywhere near that dealer. Good luck.

Oil usage in 2006 passat 2.0 turbo


I had the same problem with my wife's 2006 passat turbo. We lost 2.5 quarts in 3000 miles and the warning light came on. They put us on a 1000 mile oil test and I lost 1.8 more quarts of oil. They finally agreed to replace the rings. Service tech told me that the factory rings are defective, they begin to lead after about 25,000.

Repair or item list for 50k mile service for my 06 530i


Probably the pollen filters as well, brake fluid and anti freeze. If this is your last free service with the dealer it pays to ask them if you can check the service schedule list for your car.
