I had my oil changed today at Jiffy Lube, and they recommend that my sterring wheel fluid needed to be changed on my 2009 honda accord. Is this something I should do, and if so can I do it?They also showed me an air filter that they said needed to be changed as it was affecting my fuel performance. I thought it looked like the inside air filter?? Long and wide, had some bugs in it?? What do you think?
If the p/steering fluid is discolored or dirty.Yes replace it.After 50 000 miles or two years it should be done anyway.The air filter if clogged will affect economy.The bugs are often found on the face of filters.It should not be a big cost to have ... 2000 Honda Accord
I have a 2006 Mazda Tribute. Can you tell me what the recommended time is between lube and oil changes. Is it 3000 miles or 5000. Thanks
It used to be every 3 months or 3,000 miles but some manufacturers are suggesting that 5,000 miles is ok. My view is that it does not hurt the motor having more oil changes. I continue to have them done every 3,000 miles myself even if my oil life in ... 2006 Mazda Tribute
I have 97 4runner sr5 (not 4wd) it has 244K miles on it - i took it in for an oil change and i was told that it is recommended that i get an "enging flush" and also a "radiator flush". I just checked out the toyot scheduled maintenance and i don't see anything in there about "flushes" - are "flushes" considered the same as "replace engine coolant?" also, if you can think of any other preventative maintenance that i should have completed at this time, i would appreciate your input - i am need t
The only engines I have ever seen that needed to be "flushed" were engines that had used Quaker State oil for a long time. Usually about the only good way to tell is your engine is gummed up is to remove the oil pan of the intake manifold and see how ... 1998 Toyota 4Runner

My car will start but I shuts off after 2 or 3 seconds. As I was driving home on Friday the check eng. light came on then the RPG speedometer starting moving up and down but the eng was slowing down. I pulled over and the car shut off. The first thing I thought was that I ran out of oil (I have a MPV that eats oil like crazy) so I thought ok no my 6 must be doing the same thing because I could not think of anything else. I called my husband and asked him to bring some oil. I checked the dipstick

On the Oil cap of the 6 cyl. engine, it says 5-40 SH II. What does the SH II stand for and what would be the recommended oil weight for an engine of that age with 124,500 miles on it. Is any particular type, or brand of oil recommended and what would be the modern day spec.'s for it?
Normally this would be a grade of oil but I don't recall them using anything that thin in Camry's in the US. That maybe an Asian type of oil. In most cases in the US they used a 5W20 grade of oil. If you picked this vehicle up in Asia somewhere I ... 1997 Toyota Camry
My 2004 Buick Park Avenue has 52000 miles on it. I have been using 10W 30 motor oil per spec since the beginning, It has started using about one quart of oil every 2000 miles. Manual does not recommend a higher viscosity. Would 10W 40 weight hurt the engine? If so, is there a brand of 10W 30 that you could recommend that might reduce oil consumption?
10w40 will not hurt the engine but you may still burn a quart of oil every 2000 miles ... 2004 Buick Park Avenue
After taking my car to Jiffy Lube, it started to leak a lot of oil. I took it back to Jiffy Lube thinking they didn't put the filter or oil cap back on correctly. They told me there was a plug by the oil filter that was now gone and that was where the leaking was. Is that correct? If so, any idea how much it will cost me to fix this?
If there is a plug missing , did they show you? Is your oil pressure light or guage working? The only thing that I can think of that would be there is the oil pressure sending unit. Quit taking your car to these cheap places, I've heard to many horro ... 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis

2004 Ford Taurus: Just before leaving for vacation I had an oil change at a local lube stop. A few weeks ago after going for another oil change it was discovered that the wrong oil filter had been on the car the entire time. My car was running rough, shifting hard the entire 1200 mile trip and now it is slow to crank and indicates low oil pressure, but there is plenty of oil. If I add oil it does help, but I know I can't keep adding oil. What could be causing this? ( The battery is brand n

Also, air filters, cabin filters etc. I am due for an oil change and the last time I was at the dealership they stated I would be needing my front stabilizer links repaired, my rear shocks are beginning to leak, I need a carbon induction cleaning and what is bothering me the most is the recommended transmission fluid flush which I have looked into on the computer it can do more harm than good.

My vehicle would not start this morning. After turning the key in the ignition, the engine turns over and all the lights work, but then the car shuts off. No check engine light is on. I am thinking that it is the fuel pump. It started some time later and seemed to be leaking oil out of the oil filter. Oil had been changed a week ago. Tightened oil filter (it about 1/4 turn) no longer seems to be leaking oil. Still worried about the shutting off. Recommendations?

Already tried switching to synthetic oil did nothing. please help
The Aurora is a low pressure oil system. The only solution available at this time is to increase the oil weight. I went o straight 30W to solve the idle alarm issue. Some use 20W oil and that works too.With 20W you will be at 80 to 90psi cold ... Oldsmobile Aurora
