Dear customer my name is***** the expert who will attend you today, I am reviewing your query at the moment you are viewing this message, if you wish you can tell me your name, to know who I have the pleasure to talk to, also if possible I would like you to send me a photo or video in which your fault is better appreciated, it would help a lot to improve my final answer. If you have done a previous check or diagnosis in which you have obtained any error codes, that would also be helpful. Please note that the system will automatically offer you a service call, this has an additional cost to the initial cost of the consultation, and not in all cases it is necessary, so I recommend you to dispense with the call for now, we can continue through this chat without any problem. Thank you very much for trusting in the just answer.

Dear customer the call is not necessary, don't worry about it, the money will be refunded, but can you answer what I asked you before?

Dear customer, I think you are not seeing my questions, I have asked you to tell me if they replaced the valve cover gasket and if you have any coloured smoke in the exhaust, the call is not necessary, I hope this message reaches you, so that I can assist you correctly.

Dear customer something tells me that you have not been able to see my questions, so I will give you a general answer, while I wait for you to respond, I sincerely ***** ***** the oil must be passing through the cylinder head, you must change the head gasket and rectify the gaskets, I see that in some way you have been bothered by the service and I consider that the safest thing was the offer of the service call, I really apologise for this, it is an automatic message from the system, if you have any doubts let me know.
