Maintence questions - Exhaust popping - low oil?
New owner and I have a few quick questions to any of the experienced members on this board.
First off, I noticed recently (maybe after my filter, blockoff plates, scoops and pulley) that the car has A LOT more popping in the exhaust. Almost like back fire. It happens even when driving normally, like between up shifts.
Which brings me to my next issue - I have maintenance required on the spark plugs. Do you think this could be causing the new backfiring / popping in the exhaust? Which plugs do you guys recommend, and is it something I can do (or have my mechanic do) or should this just be a dealer trip? I see that "vehicle check" is required. Do I need a special tool to reset these warnings on the DIC?
I also have a note that I am quart low of oil. Which oil should I use, can I get it at autozone? Does the level reset itself accordingly? I remember seeing some posts that something needed to be done to reset the oil level indicator.
Thanks in advance for any helpful responses!
