Hello Scotty, hello to the team and the world wide community. My doctor has a GTR Skyline 2008. It’s not Australian delivery vehicle for to us here down under. He s not the best at maintaining the vehicle. He sister I s driving at the moment, and it has gone into limp mode. I know recently they had the brakes overhauled. I know the vehicle doesn’t get driven far, because work is close to home . Could you advise me on some basic checks to do before he takes to a mechanic. Secondly, dad has a 2013 Mazda 3, with 250002 kilometres on the clock. Against my wishes he has the vehicle serviced a a Mazda dealership: I told the service adviser that it was time the automatic transmission got serviced:. He went on to tell me their state of the art transmission doesn’t require a service. When I started debating the issue with him his reply was that the fluid was very expensive to replace and that if we did want to service the transmission it would cost an additional $500, considering the major service just had cost $450, with fifty items they claimed they checked, with the only parts changed was oil and filter and wiper robbers all around.. Thank you to Scotty, the team and the community with the greatest admiration and gratitude. Will Pliatts Merry Christmas thank everyone and a happy healthy New year in 2020

Scotty, A couple of my close mechanics friends are telling me their scan tools don’t cover Nissan GT-R skyline, the problem vehicle in this conversation. Not sure if their claims are true or they aren’t bothered with complicated not common straight forward everyday vehicle. What do I do next ? You recently mentioned in a video that we should invest in a scan tool , especially when looking to buy a used vehicle. Can you recommend such a tool that may also cover this gtr? Am I being more of a cheap scat than the king of cheap scats ?

limp home can be tons of things, get that scanned first, put codes here. You got robbed with that mazda, for sure.Heck, learn how to change it yourself, just be sure to buy the mazda fluid. It's not that hard
