Well, since the discussion last month about the surging problems
that V8's experience, the 90K service was performed on my car and
the surging is still present. Since the Ox sensor was not replaced,
I have ordered the sensor and expect it to be installed next week.
I will keep those who are interested informed as to the success of
this repair, for my car.
Now to the latest repair. The dealership noted that the front pads
are near the end of the line and estimated a $600 repair(pads and
turn rotors). Since my car has the converted rotors, this seems a
bit high. Are there any suggestions for getting reasonably priced
replacement pads? Also, one place that I have called said that
there were two types of replacement brakes fitted to the V8 and that
they would need the specific part number to price out the pads. I
don't know, but that sounds inefficient to do that unless they made
yet another improvment to the brakes!?
Also, found a place that can sell the oil filters for "only" $19.95.
That sounds pretty good compared to the $37 the dealer charges.
