The other thing is I told them I hear a tick in my engine and they said it is down oil and that it needs new oil injectors. Really? They asked me how often I change the oil and I said 7500 miles and they said that was too long to wait shld be done at 5,000. We went back and forth I said manual says 10,000 and they did not agree.
This is not my 1st mustang and I feel like I am getting the runaround again like when I had my 851/2 SVO. Thanks for the help
You didn't mention the year or engine in your car but this forum is for 2011-up 3.7L V6 cars.
For those cars the oil needs to be changed when the car tells you on your dash. 10,000 miles or 12 months is the maximum if the car hasn't already told you to change it based on the conditions under which it was driven.
As for pinions, things wear out. Maybe you drew a marginal part. Bad luck.
As for oil injectors, you may have misunderstood since these cars don't have any such part to the best of my knowledge.
