New WK owner few questions.
I just bought a 2009 Wk Hemi on Monday with (now) 15,116 miles. It's not certified, but the dealer I bought it from was a Jeep dealer but is now Subaru only and they had left over so i was able to get a good price. Well now I have few questions.
1) They said they changed the oil when I picked it up but by Wednesday the scheduled oil change warning is showing when I turn the car on. Is it possible they just didn't reset the computer when they finished or do you think I got lied to?
1A) I'm planning to change the oil anyway. What 5w-20 oil and filter do you recommend and should i go synthetic?
2) I have the tick i've been reading about and from what I understand its fairly normal with the 5.7L Hemi. Could it maybe related to the oil as in they didn't put the correct weight in or not change at all? Edit: I also noticed the idle is sometimes erratic by 100-200 rpms, it usually hovers around 600-700. I was however turning the car on and off about 3-4 times during a short trip up the road which is when I really noticed it. Any thoughts?
3) The keyfob I got works but it usually takes a few hard clicks to unlock the doors. Is the battery going or something else? Also, the auto start works but the car shuts off when I open the door, am I just doing things in the wrong order?
Thanks to whoever helps and i'm happy to be part of the club.
