60,000 mile service

Does anyone know the details for this one? The dealer quoted me a $500 price to have it done. Could this really be worth $500???? Any help? thanks!

It is a measure to honor your warranty. It is kind of a necessary evil that you are not really warned about beforehand. They do a lot of things other than oil and service. They should be doing a check on your brakes, air bags, and safety equipment. It should have information in your warranty package.

    I know it is a lot and a 19 point inspection can be done cheap at any brake shop. I'm not defending the dealer or the warranty. I am only letting you know that there is not much that can be done if you want to honor the warranty. I think one option is to call around to the dealers and ask what private shops might do the inspections for them, and see if you can get it done for a cheaper price. I know it's not what you wanted to hear.

I recently bought a 2003 Santa Fe. It's burning a quart of oil every 1,000 miles.


Hi,
If you do some more research you'll see that 1 Qt per 1K miles is considered acceptable, as the dealer stated....not that I agree either!

You may try replacing the PCV valve and ensuring the valves are adjusted properly.

Also, try a different oil - maybe a different weight may help.

I WOULD replace the O2 sensor as it can affect the amount of fuel that is used and may actually dilute the oil if it's getting past the rings.

Just to ensure the engine is healthy you can get a Compression and Leakdown test down. This will tell you the 'health' of the engine.

Go look on the Hyundai/Kia forums for oil consumption, too. You might come across something specific to your model.

GL,
Td

When do you know that you need the timing belt change in a ford aspire 1995 model if you don't have the history of the car?


Honestly there is no way with out the maintence history. The timing belt is located under a cover bolted to the front of the motor. Typically the belt is replaced between 60,000 and 100,000 miles pending on what the OEM recomends. You could try to contact your local Ford dealer's service or parts dept. If you give them the VIN number for your vehicle (located on the dash or on the drivers door) they should be able to look up the maintence history for that vehicle done at the dealer. If the belt was replaced by the dealer they would have the record of it. Otherwise, your only other option is to take the timing belt cover off and inspect to see if it is worn out, but if your going to go thru that hastle, you might as well replace the belt anyway.

I have just over 60000 mile on my 02 Yukon Denali and my "engine service soon" just came on. Should I take it to the gmc dealer or my nearest Union 76 gas station who has mechanics that can work on cars...


service engine soon is a driver/owner reminder, check your engine oil or rest it after changing to 100%, if you have the owners guide book, read it and follow the maintenance procedure to avoid severe damage to your car

Hello, does anyone know how to change the timming belt in this car. I bought this car on Oklahoma and the manual says that cars sold at Florida and California the timiing belt should be change every 60,000...


it involves removing the accessories at the front of the engine, quite often a motormount, belts harmonic damper, inner fender cover, etc, you will need assorted tools, wrenches, long and short sockets,and patience, get a detailed manual, and good luck

Timing belt in a 2005 hyundai replacement


You should find another dealer. Hyundai recommends replacing the belt every 60,000 miles and this dealer knows this. No reason at all to replace it at 42,093 miles. Remember that this is an interference engine so if the belt breaks serious engine damage will occur. Do not neglect this service at 60,000 miles.

Have 62,000 miles and am being told i need 60,000 mile service $500 and timing belt replaced another $500. this seems a little excessive?


Timing belt can be done cheaper than that, shop around - the 60,000 mile service is a FULL service, all fluids are changed, everything is tested - it is very important, probably the most important service a car will have - but $1000 is extortion! - shop around, ask your friends where they got the best deal on servicing.
I'd say $50 for the belt, $100 for the fluids oil etc, $300 labor charge - servicing is a striaghtforward task - empty old fluid, throw away oil filter, swap cambelt, fit new filter, refill the fluids, run diagnostics, test drive, back to customer, shouldn't cost $1000 for $150 of parts/fluids and 3 hours work...

2000 VW 2.0 Beetle - Manual say not to replace timing belt?


General rule on most cars with a timing belt is change somewhere between 80K and 120K. On some cars, failure of timing belt will destory the engine.

If car is only worth $2500, and labor (parts are cheap on this usually) is $1000, if you can't do it yourself, need to decide if you risk it.

Are you willing to throw away the car when the timing belt breaks? Or spend the $1000, and have some other failure that renders the car useless 5000 miles later?

This is really a financial decision you have to make. If engine blows, you may be able to get $500 for it from junkyard, and you still have your $1000 saved from not changing the timing belt.

Dealer recommends 2 items, are they needed?


the transmission normally gets service every 75,000 miles and you don't need the fuel system service

Schedule Maintenance


the trans should be serviced every 60,000, this is a recommendation for all automatic transmissions, also the cooling system hoses should be changed as well as a cooling system flush, the rest of the checks are fluid level checks, the trune up is due at 100,000 miles, the timing belt is due at 105,000 miles
