The gas mileage has dropped to a horrendous figure so I suspect my turbo is blown? I dont have binding brakes or anything else that may cause this. Any ideas?

You probably just need a tune up spark plugs, wires, fuel filter. is the check engine light on if so maybe your 02 sensor is faulty and making the car run rich

Bad gas mileage

Are you carrying anything on the roof? Have you checked for fuel leaks? If it's not running smoothly it could be that the ignition or carbuartor/injection system needs tuning.

My dashboard lights dont work

Have someone check fuse under dashboard. Some dashboards have lights wired in series. If one light goes out, they all go out.

Getting realy low gas mileage what could be wrong

You should check tire pressure. Make sure there are no brakes holding by jacking up the vehicle and spinning each wheel. If those aren't the problem have a look for engine light( suspect oxygen sensor)

My 2000 oldsmoble intrigue is getting about 15 to 19 miles a gallon from the 25 to 27. he engine was replace in march of 2009 for cooling issues for over heating. now the gas mileage is dropping for what...

Start by scanning the engine for any codes it might have. Look at air mixture and fuel trim values. These should point you in a direction to look deeper. Thinks like O2 sensors, Air Flow sensors, etc can all have a effect on mileage.
Also look to see that there is no physical issue. Are the brake calipers binding/sticking? Is the emergency brake working properly and fully disengaging? Are all of the wheel bearings good and moving freely. Almost any of these issues (friction) would result in heat and I think you would have noticed by now.

Has trouble taking off.low exhaust pressure, low fuel mileage

Suspects will include air supply, compression, and exhaust.

After ruling out the obvious basics (fresh air filter, unobstructed air intake) pull the wire clip to the auto-choke and idle for a few seconds before dropping it in gear to check for a change in power.

if you have abs the electic noise you hear is most likely coming from the abs modulator. as for the rear brakes intermittently locking up, the most common problem is overadjusted rear brake shoes, under adjusted rear brake shoes, or excessive brake dust inside the drums.

Front driver brake locking up

Either the caliper piston is rusted and binding or the brake hose for that wheel is collapsing internally and preventing the caliper from retracting. Check both.

Poor gas mileage on my jeep liberty

Did this happen overnight or was it a gradual loss? Did you do any kind of repair before you lost the gas mialage? Is there a check engine light on or did it come on and go off? Did anything weird happen before the jeep got bad gas mileage? It's hard to diagnose a problem like this without actually touching the car.
Any other info might help me steer you in the right direction.
