We got a saturn vue 2003 2 years ago it had 60x mi on it now it's got 84x we change oil every 3000 mi and last year we took it to the dealership for service, but i want to know what other services should i give it now, i'd really appreciate your help, thank u
Keep the serpintine belt, oil/oil filter, air filter, gas filter and transmission fluid/filter changed regularly. At 84k, check the brakes (front and back). I would look at changing the spark plugs as well. If it is running good, you want to keep i ... 2003 Saturn VUE
I have a vw golf mk 4, when the car is warm it doesnt want to start, When its cold it starts first time with no problems. If i manage to get the car started when its warm and put my foot on the accelerator it loses power and then stalls. I have had it in a garage and they seem to think the problem is due to engine wear even tho my car has only done 69,000 miles, i have had it serviced every year so surely this isnt the problem, is it?
I had a similar problem on my '93 Golf at approximately 95,000 miles. It got so bad, I could not stop at a gas station for gas. I had to fill up gas cans using my wife's 2000 Jetta and refuel the '93 at home, otherwise I'd be stuck at the pump for at ... 1995 Volkswagen Golf
My coolant keeps going down twice each time between 7500 kms services no leaks nor signs of leakage and temperature gauge don't indicate over heating my 2009, susuki 1300, autmatic swift is now pass a year. this began since i bought the car in august 2008 i believe a car should not have to be top up twice every three months SIMPSON'S MOTORS BARBADOS IS THE DEALER
If there is no sign of leakage, it's probably fine. sometimes there are air bubbles in the system and it takes a while to work them out. which causes the need to add more coolant. i would keep an eye on it just to make sure there are no leaks. after ... 2005 Suzuki Swift
My 2008 Smart is showing two wrenches indicating that maintenance is due. The car only has 16750 miles. I called the nearest dealer and was told that since I had not had it serviced in a year that the wrenches indicate service is due. I just had the oil changed at 15454 in Jan 2011. When I asked how to disable the icon I was told that only by bringing the car in for it's yearly check up and a $432 check. Is there any way to reset the yearly maintenance icon (i.e., 2 wrenches)?
Hi, there are two methods to reset that reminder:\015\012\015\012\015\012Method 1 Switch on ignition to position 1 Select maintenance indicator within 4 sec. by double tapping the instrument cluster button Switch off the ignition to posit ... 2008 Smart fortwo
Last year the house next to my house was sold. We share the same driveway. I have a vehicle i use every summer parked at the end of the shared driveway for the past 5 years now the new owner want to take me to court to move my vehicle so he can park at the back of his house. He can park at the side of my vehicle like the other owners but the main reason he want me to move my vehicle is because he want his tenants to get parking.

My 2004 GMC Envoy SLT has 7,500 miles and due to the fact that I've been working overseas for the past 5 years, it's been sitting in storage, with frequent start-ups and is driven every couple of weeks. Every year I go to the states for a week or two but because of the very low mileage, I change the oil, and rotate tires. I'm moving back to the states in Aug. What kind of service do you recommend? Do you recommend I drop all the fluids and replace, and to also replace all 4 tires? Thanks...
While it never hurts to change the fluids, that may be unnecessary in some instances. The oild should likely be changed, as well as a new filter. The coolant may not need to be changed since it is designed for about 100,000 to 150,000 miles. The t ... 2004 GMC Envoy
Transmission slipping Been driving a 79 Cordoba (v8 auto) around 80 miles daily several years and now it drives fine for maybe 2 miles before loosing all power from transmission (both forward and reverse). Transmission has been serviced regularly with last service less than a year ago. Fluid looks and smells clean and is not low (or high). One other note, I can turn the engine off and restart and go again for a short distance. Thanks for your help!

Problems? For the last 3 years it was like Newton's Law. Anything that could go wrong did. The computer in these vehicles are ****. Every little touch sends the sensors off. I've had the dealership look at my Service Engine Soon light 3 years ago and they couldn't "FIGURE OUT" how to fix it. I've gotten everything fixed that has needed to be, but it's been dinging for 3 years. 3 YEARS. No one can find the code to reset the computer. They drive great, but have a lot of problems. Now I have the Se

Hyundai Excel Year 2000 -(submitted incorrect year before) My Hyundai sometimes fail to restart after a short run. If left for 15-20 minutes it will restart. Vehicle will restart immediately with a push start. Engine turns over rapidly on starter motor. Service check indicates no ignition and they suggested it was a sensor but unsure which one. They suggested replacing one by one but it would be quite expensive.Thank you and I will be happy to pay the fee for an expert. Don Rumball

Hey Ghost; My 04, Santa Fe has 62,000 miles on it and needs transmission service, my dealer / service center wants to do a flush using MOC fluid with an additive. They tell me they can do only a drain and fill with OEM SP-lll. What do you think? My thoughts were do the drain & fill myself with the SPlll and drive for 500 miles, then do another drain & fill. Then do it every 15k miles with SP-lll. I don't know much about this MOC brand do you?
No i dont know much about this moc but i would go to autozone buy the oem spIII fluid do it myself but i would only do it recommended intervals no need do it all those extra times you just be wasting your time and money hope this helps ... Hyundai Santa Fe

Hello, i have a 2000 Ford excursion , 6.8l v10 Triton with 53000 miles. I washed my engine as i do every year, with a water hose, covered up all the major engine components. I also added a chevron fuel injector cleaner to about 17 gallons of gas. Issue, when i start it, it tends to shake a lil bit every time i give it gas (rev) it gets worse from 1000-2500 rpm. over that it acts normal. When i floor it WOT from 25mph you can hear the exhaust sound funny,, like a bumble roar that wants to fart. a

I have a 2003 Dodge Ram Hemi. An amber light in the upper left dash and a flashing red light in the lower right is displays periodically. When this happens the engine runs very rough and wants to cut out etc...Is this an emissions problem? The truck is still under warranty. Less than 70,000 miles and less than 7 years. I also have an oil leak coming from just inside the left front aprox. 12 to 18 inches over. The fluid is red in color. Is this the 4wd gearbox oil or power stirring?
Use the warranty, if you get someone to poke around it could void the warranty.\015\012 Red fluid is normally transmission fluid, sometimes power steering. Is the fluid oily or watery, some brands of antifreeze are red.\015\012 A flashin ... 2003 Dodge Ram Maxi
Transmission jerks between gears 1 and 2. The transmission has never been flushed. Car has 90k on it. Previous owner claims to have done regular servicing, but the brake fluid is low and transmission fluid is brown. Car had a major accident 4 years ago with major damage to the rear of the car. If anyone has suggestions to help fix the problem, that would be great. We want to make this car last a couple of more years. Thanks!
Hi.\015\012\015\012\015\012I assume that we are talking about an automatic transmission. If we are talking about manual transmission, the the gear box is probably faulty.\015\012\015\012\015\012To start, if car had never ... 2001 Acura 3.2CL
Oil problem I have a 2007 VW EOS and the car now has 30250 miles and it has been serviced regularly. The loss of oil started a couple of months ago. The PVC valve was replaced but the problem remaims. The oil has been removed and weighed by the service department three times now. One of the techs stated that it is acceptable to loose a certain amount of oil every 600 miles. I personally find this unacceptable and I want an answer. Now there is a white milky substance on the filler hole and the d

The red battery light on my 2001 Ford Expedition 4.6L (73,000 miles) just came on tonight. Is it the alternator, belt, tensioner, or just battery cables? Replaced battery less than 2 years ago with Optima Red Top battery. Where do I start troubleshooting? I live in Alaska and cold weather is already here, so I don't want to fool around with a failing alternator. Is the alternator hard to change on this year of Expedition?
The alternator change is not that difficult. I would take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them test the alternator output. Check the battery cables and make sure they are clear of corrosion and are tight. A parts store can also test the co ... 2001 Ford Expedition
