Car talk tré: General Motorpods

Little nooby question. I know we got a few copart experienced guys on here.

On Copart, when you visit the part you want off a particular car on its site, is it possible to just to take a part out of that car like a head unit? or bidding is really the only option?

Re: Mitsubishi Mirage - The Ultimate Modern Day Shitbox

Here's the remainder of the story (I already told about any potential/proven signs regarding about oil): - I got my car towed to my ideal dealer that I trust more than the dealer I have gotten my car from. - Since I thought I was out of warranty (followed with the OJ extended warranty ending at 65k...

I’m also aware as far as say if it hadn’t been reached 10k in a year, it should be changed. But that may have to do with rapid temp changes throughout my last interval, and the car sat for over a month. Unless you have a terrible leak having it stand around doesn’t do much That’s a negative so no.

And how long ago did you add the quart, mile wise? Do you check your oil levels regularly ? :notsure: if VW has the electronic checker ala audi.
Literally nobody does this.
I used to check more regularly. Its more like every 2-3 months now.
