Tip & How-To about Hyundai Veracruz

The Best Book

I know that alot of you out there in cyberspace don't work on your own vehicles some say there too complicated. Their correct to a degree.But in all my years of working on vehicles of all kinds all designs. The best advice I can give to you the place where you can go to find out everything about your particular vehicle your currently driving, Here it comes, your wealth of knowledge, Your study guide.... Your Owners Manual.... Yes that book in the glove box, it tells you everything you need to know about your vehicle. READ IT.... It has a wealth of information in it. If you just give it a chance. But sadly to say it's the last thing owners look at. It get's buried on the bottom under the fast food napkins. After you read it you'll find out that there are somethings that as the vehicle driver you can replace yourself, HMMM do it myself, save some money, take pride that I did it myself. HMMM save some money.No the manual won't tell you how to replace your engine, but it will tell you how to replace a tail light bulb, or your air filter, what type and weight of oil it needs. Yout tire pressure, how to jack up the vehicle, where the jacks at. All kinds of great information but you have to read it. The time to read it is just after you drive it home and park it for the night. Don't read it when your on the side of the road waiting for the tow truck to haul you away to the repair shop and then find out, HEY I could have prevented this by just reading the darn manual. I hope that reading this opens someones eyes and you go out to the vehicle now and start reading your old friend, It's saying where have you been I've been here all the time, just waiting for you....

1994 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE 5.2L OIL DIPSTICK ONLY GOES DOWN HALF WAY THEN STICKS. I pulled it to check the engine oil level and I know this sound crazy but it jambs in the tube halfway down. Anyone have

Push it in till it sticks, remove half way (so 1/4) of travel turn dipstick 180 degrees then push in if jambs again try 1/4 way out & turn 90 degrees. Sounds stupid but this normally works with vehicles haveing trouble getting dip stick in. Just don't force to much.

a/c blows cold on one side an hot on the other

To figure out anything at all on a Lincoln LS,because it is
one of Fords most complicated and all electronic vehicles,
(I own One) you need a professional scan tool and the factory
diagnostic manuals or a similiar data base, to do anything at all,
when something doesn't work correctly.

I would NEVER recommend a dealer for any vehicle ever

If you have thousands to spend,your call

That leaves the local repair shops & they don't all care
for Ford Products.
I don't know about the LS & newer Lincolns,but it won't
be a quick fix,as it will be extremely time consumming
just to find the issues at the repair shop you choose

Then your going to get told it is okey or they couldn't find
anything or did do something, that won't last

I could have painted a very positive picture,but I want you
to know todays vehicles are very difficult to diagnose &
mainly there isn't too many mechanics or shops that are
going to do the difficult job of training & self study

You may get a better more technical answer in a couple
days by a tech who know more about the HVAC System
and your issue

hi i have mitsubishi pinin 4x4 2.0 GDI engine, when starting on a warm engine it often has a 5 sec missfire then goes ,cold start no probs , its had full service mits main dealer only recently had new plugs platinum , oh i use premium fuel only 97oct & once a week give it 4 to 5 rpm to clear it out but am baffled why the odd missfire when warm?

Some vehicles don't run well with the platinum plugs. It will cause the engine to misfire and skip. I would go back with the OEM or a step above unless your car came with platinum plugs which is doubtful. The plugs may be firing off correct when cold but as the engine warms and more friction is there the plugs may be doing more bad because it's not firing correct from the plug being warm. It sounds strange but I work for BOSCH and there are alot of things that don't seem normal to someone that's not involved in making these parts and seeing the everyday test and use. Good Luck. Let me know what you find out and what works.
