Those of you getting the oil consumption tests done, Are the dealers requiring an oil flush and fill first? I inquired about it last recall service and they said I need an oil flush and fill @ $99 before they can start the consumption test. I dont see why this is necessary. I have an appointment next week for more recalls and an airbag light. Clock spring it sounds like. B1361 DAB high resistance. I want to have all my ducks in a row when I ask for the oil consumption test.
They might be thinking that the piston rings are carboned up and a flush might help free them up and perhaps make your oil consumption more like normal. IDK.
