car update

Its been 3 or 4 weeks since I picked up my car and almost 500 miles which meant time for an oil change. With a baby engine I have to take very good care of my car, and most importantly ensure that I can maintain the warranty.

What I had noticed the past few weeks was that my engine was running hot. Sometimes while driving I've had to blast the heat to cool down my engine, which makes for a warm spring drive rather uncomfortable. Not only that, my check engine light decided to say hello for a day and a half and my coolant light joined in on the fun.

Luckily, no problems! The mechanic said there was an air pocket in my coolant and they flushed that out, changed my oil and ran a diagnostic on my engine and discovered a sensor they didn't replace was bad. All for zero charge! I like free. The engine is happy and so is my car :)
