Maintenance and Upkeep

Maintenance minder went off this month. Mentioned the drivetrain malfunction and they pulled the codes. Multiple items were replaced in addition to the due maintenance.

  • Cabin Air Filter
  • Engine Oil
  • Oil Filter
  • Tire Pressure
  • AT Diesel Particulate Filter
  • Diesel Exhaust Fluid
  • Oxygen Sensor

The particulate filter and oxygen sensor were replaced due to the code history. All other items were standard maintenance. I looked up the general cost of the particulate filter and it is not cheap. Hopefully this is not a sign to come, with less than 10,000 miles it feels like a bad sign.
