My dealership wants to change oil at 3,000 miles & my idiot light agreed
I changed to Mobile 1 synthetic & a Wix oil filter & now my idiot light doesn't come on until over 5,000 miles

my dealership kept hounding me to change transmission & differential fluids at 20,000 miles
i got around to it at 42,000 miles & i went with the proper Royal Purple fluids. I even had a complete flush done cooler, torque converter, lines. It is now at least 97% RP ATF
I replaced the rear differential cover with a larger capacity cover that has both fill & drain threaded plugs, the drain plug is magnetized. It is a MAG-Hytech cover
