On this show, Dave Riccio of Tri-City Transmission in Tempe, AZ and Matt Allen of Virginia Auto Service in Phoenix talk about oil change services and intervals that may differ depending on your vehicle’s age, make and model.

  • How does the age of your vehicle affect what it needs from oil related services?
  • 3k miles or 5k miles between oil changes?
  • Information about motor oil acidity.
  • What common repairs or services may be offered to you even if you’re solely taking your car to a shop for an oil change?
  • 1993 Jeep Cherokee: My vehicle is struggling to shift out of 1st gear. I’ve had issues with low transmission fluid – where should I go from here?
  • 1990 Toyota Camry: My auto repair shop is insisting that I have an oil leak, however I’ve yet to see any oil on my driveway. Is it possible that the temperature is affecting the leak?
  • 2008 Honda Odyssey: What symptoms would I experience if my real alignment is out?
  • 2008 GMC Sierra: My vehicle is telling me that the 4 wheel drive is engaged – however it is not. Is there a switch issue here?
