I have my 2010 F150 S'crew 5.4L telling me it needs its regular 6 monthly service (Oil etc).
It was serviced 6 months ago at 40,000kms and has been used little over the winter (now at 42800KMs), does anyone know if the servicing sensors really work off of the oil life calculations, or does it somehow keep track of time as I service it every 6 months and the warning light comes on as my service reminder arrives in the post as it did yesterday!
Normally I cover approx 6000KMs between the services, so was surprised that the warning light came on this time, I know that lots of short journeys treat the engine & oil differently than less, longer journeys, but TBH it really has not been used much at all, with a mix of short and longer journeys.
Anyone with any insight on this?
