Do you have to remove any skid plate to change the oil on a Trail rated Compass? I have had mine on a lift yet to see underneath. I'm going to change my oil tomorrowat 2500 miles and rotate tires.
The manufacturer cannot deny you warranty because you did not have mandatory service done at a dealer. You just need to do the oil and filter changes and it certainly in the owner best interest to do it. Other types of service EG Spark plugs are less sensitive or mandatory. I did mine late and did not notice any difference either way but 4 plugs are cheap enough anyway.Ah, good to know! I wasn't sure how picky they would be about denying the warranty if something minor happened.
I will keep an eye out for leaks and things that seem loose. I'm always crawling around under my vehicles.
Ok here you go research this and is documented in the oil table for you!! MS6395SWhich brand of oil do you use? And do you use synthetic? I've been trying to find oil that meets the MS-6395 standard. Since I don't have many options in my small town for oil shopping, I've had to revert to doing online research. I can never find pictures of the back of the bottles to read if they would work or not.
As far as the frequency, I think I'll be changing it every 6 months since the manual says every 8000 miles or 6 months. I don't put many miles on. I'm at about 5 months right now and I MAYBE have 2400 miles on.
Its likely and update on the earlier spec. You owners manual will likely say SAE SN oil or later or SAE SM which preceeded. You could email Quaker State there is usually a contact info link there somewhere.Oh, great! Thanks for the info!
No, I don't plan on using a Fram filter. I have never heard anything good about those filters.
Is MS-6395 the same as MS-6395S?
