The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.
