Oil Change Problem
So I had my car in for a rear end replacement about 3 weeks ago, and during this time they also did my oil change. But as some of you may have read my "Did I rob My Goat of Power" I did not feel any difference in my goat after my oil change was done. I thought it was because of my newly installed exhaust.
But the weirdest thing happened to me when driving home yesterday. A "Check Oil" alert came up on my display. I was completely confused by it because I had just had the oil changed. At first thought was "am I leaking oil?" So as soon as I parked my car, I let it sit for about an hour and checked the oil level. It was fine, and I didn't notice any leak. But in feeling the oil, I noticed that it was a little thin.
So now I am wondering if they put Mobil 1 in my car. I really hope they didn't put just conventional oil and this caused the alert. If so, what kind of damage am I looking at? Do you guys think from what I described that it is possible they put in the wrong oil? Or could it be that they just forgot to reset the computer when the oil was changed? But doesn't it say something else when that comes up? Doesn't it say Check Engine, and not "Check Oil"?
I may just be exaggerating but now every little thing that I notice wrong I fear the worst.
