The last time the car was in was for my last oil change. I asked them to put on my receipt what was needed to fix the engine problem. Here is what they put on the receipt:

"Needs injector service and needs emission service and needs top engine cleaner. Repairs run $269.95 plus tax."

They stated to me this would not be covered under warranty.

Thank you for the additional information. What was the time frame that you had the vehicle in for your last oil change? Did you seek to talk with the Service Manager or Warranty Specialist to get more information as to why this would not be covered?

That's a very specific price for such a non-specific repair.

I wasn't aware that was an avenue I could have sought or else I would have. The man I spoke with could have been a manager (he wasn't the technician who worked on my car. He was the one putting information into the computer).

As far as the time frame goes, it was the last time I got an oil change there, which was probably 3 months ago.

It could have been the service manager, but more than likely it was a service advisor. It can hurt to call and speak with the manager if that wasn't him.

Never go by the oil life percentage givin on the dash! I work at a dealership and i see it all the time. Almost always end up replacing timing chains and/or engines.

Well "almost always" is a pretty big statement.

So, if we buy into your analysis, how about you telling us what change interval you think will NOT result in major engine problems.

Ok so on my Malibu I know I never let the oil change percentage get below 50. That seems to be around the time I hit 3000 miles I do run synthetic and I know most syns are rated at 5k but I do drive alot so I like to change it often. And always keep your oil change records because that's the first thing that a dealership will ask for when or if something happens. The certified techs at my work even tell me not to go by the percentage, we were just talking today about how some vehicles have not said to do an oil change until close to 10k miles. It's really personnal preference but I choose to change around 50 to 60 percent.

The '09 algorithm, if not updated to the new version, would take about 8-10,000 miles before reaching 0%. My '09 got to about 65% with 3500 miles.

My '11 gets to 5000 or less when it reaches 0%. I change my synthetic oil based on miles since the last change. As I grow in confidence in the OLM I'll be able to use it as a guide, but ultimately it's up to each owner to decide on the service intervals that make them feel good. After all, that what it all boils down to, isn't it?
