  • 2013 Ford F150: My truck’s oil light keeps coming on intermittently – usually at stops. Is this just an issue with the sensor?

  • 2016 Nissan Rogue: At less than 30k miles, should I still have this vehicle inspected before making a purchase?

  • 1993 Chevrolet Silverado: After checking fuses and a number of other components, my truck’s battery is still drawing overnight. How can I best diagnose the problem with this?
