Super Charger Oil Changing and the Dealership Mechanic
as you you may have read i had the beast in for a broken winow motor replacement. While there i figured i would pick up some supercharger oil, as i don't know when the last time it was changed, and i have 66k + on my car. While there in the parts department i asked my service attendant the usual questons this one being key "i ony need two (which i have read on this forum is the amount i need, but i wanted to verify) bottles to change the oil in my supercharger right?" of course she did not know and she proceeded to ask a group of mechanics in the parts department the question. There answer was interesting. "We only top it off, we never change it. Changing it would be difficult." To which i said, "A turkey baster and a small hose would do it." he just chuckled and said again "all we ever do is top it off."
This brings me to a question - why would the dealershp, which NEVER passes up an opportunity to make money, pass on setting a standard for when to fully change the supercharger oil? i already have the oil and we all know oil will break down over time, but why is it that the dealership takes this stance?
