Service History Check

Is there a way to check what kind of dealership service a vehicle has had? Can I take my VIN into any Ferd dealer and have them bring it up?

Reason I ask, I was told my Exploder had a new, dealer replaced, engine. I never believe that stuff, but I came across a stock tag on the engine that has a later date than the vehicle...and there's a nut missing from the motor mount so it very well may have been a dealership job ()

dealers can run an OASIS report on a vehicle that shows all the repaired history. Some dealers do it without batting an eye, some won't do it at all.

I tried to get the service history for my truck when I bought it from Wenzel GMC in Grand Rapids and they wouldn't because they said it was for the privacy of the previous owner.

I didn't ask what they paid or for any of their info, just what has been done. They were the servicing dealer since the truck was new.

Doesn't OASIS only show warranty history?
