Default What A Dumba$$

It is required by my warrenty company that I have proof of oil changes every 3K. If I go over I void the warrenty. Anyways, I bring it to this Valvoline instant oil place and they pull the plug and I here noises from the bay of an insane person. Yelling and screaming and talking like donald duck. This is the person draining my oil. Then a guy pops my hood and yells "supercharged", and i'm thinking WOW you can read an engine covor, good job! Then a guy starts telling me all the things I have serviced and at what milles. Then I test him, " About how many miles should I flush my supercharger oil", I ask.

The answer:
Uhhhh... superchargers have fluid in them? I was like
So, yea I immidiatly drove to the nearest parking lot and inspected the WHOLE car.

Lemme guess......Valvoline at 50 and 35????They should know the */C one buy now...I've done that to them like 3 times. Go to Jiffy lube in Apple Valley off of cedar....They give you an envelope with all your info written on it plus recipts....Be WAY easier then cataloging Valvoline'* receipts that you can't read anyways because they have so many claims against them they can't afford a new ribbon for their printer.

I work at a wal-mart tire lube express. I'm sure the way we act sometimes would make you question our sanity. But hey, as long as I'm in the shop, you got nothing to worry about! Can't say as much for some of my co-workers though.

My local JiffyLube did an oil change on an F350 and never put oil back in it.

It'* not really the establishment but the people that work there. Gotta have a lot of trust in a guy for him to be touching stuff under my hood, Especially if I can't stand right next to him ready to smack his hand.
