You forgot part of my answer when I asked you that having 111,000 miles on this car is not bad. What is the best thing to do to keep this car going for awhile?
Auto Mechanic: cartech, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
sorry misunder stood you should change the oil every 3 months or 3000 miles also the coolant should be flushed and changed yearly 111 is not bad we see them with allot more
