    We have Chrysler Pacifica minivans ad company vehicles and they have this feature. Thankfully, it can be shut off at the push of a button.

    "I needed to understand that sometimes they just run hot."

    Sounds like the service writer needs a tune up... :smack:

    Service writers are complete dipshits in most cases. Most now could not tell you the difference in an oil filter and a spark plug.

    Nailed it!!! Always look to the easy shit first.

    You and me both

    Using a quart every 4-5K isn't horrible even if it's a newer vehicle. I use the blend so IDK what the usual for full synth is. As long as you don't have a mosquito killer don't sweat it. Oil is cheap enough..and I've owned a few old vehicles that used a quart a week.

    Up there if not the biggest, no argument here.

    It happens, especially where your example had a history of it being thus

    I'm old, I still work okay..

    All I’m saying is after my night shift, I hopped in my 3rd gen, using keyless entry, started it without touching the key in my pocket, flipped my auto high beams on, turned my heated seats onto setting 2 (just right for this fall-summer night), turned my auto climate control a touch up to 73 degrees, and cruised home with my radar cruise control.

    Just arrived at Legal Seafood in Lynnfield to meet up with @ABA180 and almost nailed a Bentley as I turned into the shopping center. The driver of the Bentley would have been at fault had an accident occurred, and I'm guessing the idiot was texting. The Bentley didn't have a front license plate so I don't know if they're from MA or not...

    A few additions to make me feel cool.
    The service writer was super nice after I told the owner “yeah, your service bitch told me that some just run hot”. I mean I have been a customer for a while and it’s not that I do not have the ability to do what I am paying you to do it’s that I can afford not to. Anyway, he changed his tune when I picked it back up. And it does not help that I loath service writer and parts people for the most part. I did both of those jobs when I was younger and prided myself on knowing my job. Back then most service writers were also mechanics, I was and service writer was a promotion and gave me the ability to go work in the shop and do diagnostics before I even wrote the service ticket. Times change I guess. I stopped by our local Chevy dealer to get a new center cap for my wife’s Tahoe a while back. After standing and waiting for 15 min while two senior parts guys bullshitted right in front of me and told me someone would be right with me a young guy came out of the back and said he needed the vin or he could not assist me. I was so floored I just left and ordered it online. When I was a parts guy I would go repair your car in the parking lot half the time. I love it now when they ask you if it’s a 4x4 when you try to get wiper blades. I am like, you know what dude. It does not fucking matter and you should know that!

    I was at our local NAPA a couple weeks ago and needed a replacement belt for a fan at work. After the kid behind the counter brought me two belts that were over an inch off I said “bud, just grab your belt measuring tool”. He said “we don’t have that” I said, “yeah, but I bet you do. Show me your belts” he took me in the back and hanging to the left on the wall of belts was a Dayco belt measuring device with about an inch of dust on it. I said, alright let’s grab that crazy looking yard stick up there and I’ll teach you a trick. He had no idea you could measure a belt and that they made a tool for it.
