What type of lights are you using, OEM or the fancy xeon/blue lights. If your using the super bright lights etc the wattage requirements may be higher than your car can handle. Also check the wiring for cuts and nicks looking for exposed cable. Is the headlight assembly cracked leaking moisture etc. Also your not touching the bulb are you? if you are then stop :)

Do you have dew or water settlement inside the headlight casing? SOunds like you my have a leaky assembly. if the assembly is not air tight it will cause the headlights to do this.

I notice that the engine is taking oil about a pint a month. There are no visible oil leaks


An engine will use oil as it becomes older. This is particularly the case if it is doing long journeys on a regular basis, such as motorway/highway journeys. They may use more oil than usual if they are driven at high speed on such journeys, just keep an eye on the level and keep it topped up, a once a week check should be sufficient.
If you are new to the vehicle it may be that you are noticing it more because your previous vehicles did not behave in such a manner. It may be that your driving patterns have changed and that is why the oil consumption has become noticeable. Assuming the vehicle is running correctly , and that you drive long distances I would say don't worry too much, just keep on top of it.
I have had diesel cars and if I do long journeys they have done exactly the same thing . If your engine is a high mileage unit seek advice about the oil to use, a manufacturer may have one that is designed specifically for high mileage engines.
I/We current run a Honda FRV with 183000 miles on the clock and have changed the recommended oil to one that offers more protection.
If the engine starts playing up, blowing out more smoke than usual, have the engine checked then.
It may be that you do have a leak, .... if there is no obvious leak around the rocker/valve cover gasket or the sump pan, or from the oil filter housing check the front / crank oil seal.
It may be there is nothing wrong at all.

My 2007 Toyota Camry just hit 45,000 miles and my check engine light came on. Would regular maintenace needed cause the light to come on? What should I / could I expect when I take it in?


I do believe there is a difference between a maintenance light and a check engine light. You can take your vehicle to most parts suppliers (auto zone, pep boys) and they will check your computer codes for free.

How often should i change my oil in my 2008 Lincoln Navigator?


The people that make replacement engines say 6000 to 7500 miles. I never let any vehicle go over 4500 and usually 4000. There is a time thing too, 4 months to 6 months.

If you drive 3000 miles in a 2 week vacation its different than 3000 in 4 months of stop and go driving. I have owned over 55 vehicles, mostly used and have never had any engine failure and regularly put 100,000 miles of my own miles on used vehicles.
I use Valvoline, GTW, and sometimes Havoline.

Coolant Problem?


The coolant used in your van is any that has the following words on bottle:
LONG/EXTENDED LIFE COOLANT, almost all coolants out there are in this class of coolants now, use a name brand like Preston, use the premixed type (50/50), easier.. Good luck and make sure your tire pressure are at the correct inflation, be safe friend.

What motor oil is best for my 2007 beetle


I'm sure that if you ask 10 different people, you will get many different answers. No different from any product with multiple brands. People have favorites based on past good history, referrals from friends or "experts" or whatever. The main thing is that you maintain your vehicle on a regular basis based on your driving habits - changing your oil every 3,000 to 7,500 miles depending your environment (dusty, dirty etc), do you drive in the city frequently, does the engine work hard/ frequently high rpms? bulk oil to synthetic, stay consistent with your oil change intervals.

My 95 jeep grand cherokee with 133,000 miles allways serviced on a regular basis feels slugish while accelerating. Once the car gets moving it is fine could it be a bad coolant temp sensor?


well thats possible if it acts different at different temps you might want to check catalatic convertor and possibly your fuel pressure

My honda accord ex 91 is running exellent since i changed the ignition wires and spurk plugs. it has 107,000 miles, manual transmision. for more power and gas saving, what kind oil motor and gas should i...


With that many miles there is no point in putting synthetic oil in the engine because it will probably be too thin and cause the seals to start leaking. Keep the oil changed regularly (every 3000 miles) and use a brand name 5W-30 grade oil like Mobil1 or castrol. As far as gas goes I would put a tank of high octane gas in about once a month. You can try using high octane all the time but check your mileage per tank on the regular grade and then after you've filled you car about 4-5 times with high grade so you can see if it really is making a difference. Also check your owners manual to see if it recommends higher grade gasoline.
