The General, Acura Kid,
I'm using the MID for oil changes. I just choose to change the oil with 20-25% life remaining. Not that it isn't OK to leave it longer but I'm still find it hard to leave oil in my car for double the miles I used to leave my Ford. Problem is they reset the MID when I have the oil changed and then I never know the requirements for other services such as coolant flush, valve adjustments etc....Unless I'm missing something the manual just shows you the breakdown of what the MID codes are. This doesn't help if you never let the oil life get to the point where the codes are displayed.
If you don't use the MID, how do you know when to do other service? I'm used to it being listed in the owner's manual. Like I said, I don't think it shows up in the TL manual by mileage. I'd just like a reference guide.
