All is well.....
Greetings, To recap, I asked, on the phone (pickup and delivery), after a 12k service, how the valves were. Was told no, that's now 16k.
I emailed the service manager and got a nice reply that the rep I talked to was new, mistaken, 12k is where the valves are checked and indeed they were. In spec, but did not have specifics. Everything on the check sheets and in the service booklet are as they always have been.
Thanks all for the comments and recommendations! The brakes and clutch was serviced there and I'll do the rear drive tomorrow. I spent the nice warmer day cleaning the big girl and doing the shift linkage, which really needed it.
Thanks again. I've learned a lot here over the years.
