So with Carrie now at 90k and hurtling towards 100k I’m thinking about strategies to extend her life or, more accurately, save me money in the long term. All of the following have been suggested to me, any one think they are all worth doing at this time?
- transmission fluid flush – no brainer this one, can a lube place do it, or is there special equipment needed?
- fuel injector cleaning – people tell me this is a con and these days they are self cleaning, so not sure about this one
- supercharger oil top up – this seems like a good idea if it will give me another ~50k before it dries up
Oil change is in 3000 miles so maybe I’ll take it to an independent MINI dealer and have the oil and supercharger oil done at the same time?? Anything else you can suggest for the almost 100k MCS?
