The final cut of TMC Podcast #34 is available now with topics timestamped. We covered Tesla's rollercoaster prices, Toyota pushing junk science, Mike's new Model 3, Optimizing track mode for snow driving, FSD V11 apparently coming by the end of this week, and more. You can watch and check out the chat replay on YouTube.
Here's the run down. I was told that they fluid level was low, but no leaks were found. They replaced the oil and oil pump. They postulated that the oil may have not been filled to optimum levels or that the pump was not functioning properly, hence the replacement. Interesting.
It just finished service today, total service time 24 hours, I will pick it up tomorrow. I drove with the message on for 3+ weeks and over 1000 miles with the message on. Never noticed any fluid leaks.
No drips that I have noticed. and the service light does say "OK to Drive" and on top of that Tesla scheduled my service 3 weeks out.. so it makes me think its not super serious. Maybe I'll put cardboard under it this weekend to check it out.
Your theory seems to make sense. After the new...
