    Hi gang. I changed the oil over the weekend now that winter is over, I didn't wait too long, was still in the 3000-4000 mile range. However in my in ambition to refill it and I had some leftover new oil from the last change, I filled it to the point where it's at the F line or just a smidgen...

    My Soul will soon be turning 60,000 miles and we have a standard rule in our family that we change the timing belt at 60,000 ( my daughter's car was destroyed when her belt failed). Typically my husband changes the belt, however my car is the 2009 2.0 engine and I'm struggling to find...

    I have seen recommendations for every 2 years or 50K for just about every other vehicle. 10 years or 120K can't be right. Can I trust this?
