The truck has been idling between 500 & 800 RPM for a while. It drives fine but at times the will drop to 0 then shut off. It will do this sometimes after coming to a stop or turning a corner. The truck will start up right away but has been doing this for the last 4-5 months. I was told it may have been that I was using only regular gas but have been using the Mid Grade for the last month.

Check gages light turns on and doesn't go off. Already had the oil changed, the oil pressure needle keeps marking 0. It had the same problem once but I changed the oil and kept working fine; then about 2 months after that oil change the oil pressure needle started to drop again, so I changed the oil once again, kept working ok, and since that oil change it only has been less than a month, and the oil pressure needle dropped to 0, and the check gages light is on

I just bought a 2005 expedition. It started chugging right from the start. I was told it had been sitting it would resolve. It only got worse. It's mostly when I take my foot off the gas a little. When I apply the peddle, it goes away. It's suppose to get 16 mpg, it was getting 12. I took it back, they replaced fuel filter and injecter and altenator. The problem went to almost nothing and mpg was up to 16. It's doing it more gradually and I'm down to 14 mpg. Any ideas???

Purchased a 2011 Lincoln Hybrid in February. It took almost a month to get the car to even get past 25 mpg. I have driven it for 1700 miles now and it won't go past 32.6 mpg. I would think that if the car advertised 36 Highway and 41 around town, that I would get something close to at least 36. I watch the gaugues and I'm seeing the gauge hit 60 mpg+ quite a bit. I asked the dealer and no one could answer me other than (It's the way you drive. and it's not 36/41, it's UP TO 36/41.) It's a h

Gas mileage When I purchased my '91 Civic Si in 2001 I would routinely get 38 - 39 mpg. Over the years that number has slowly dropped, but suddenly I went from 34 mpg to 29 mpg. I recently had an issue with the car quitting on the highway. I replaced the rotor, distributor cap, icm, master relay, and fuel pump. I actually installed 2 fuel pumps because the first one died after only a week of driving. Are there any easy solutions to get it back into the mid-30's range?
