20w-50 is an excellent choice. Every 2,500 to 3,000 miles is recommended for oil change intervals.

What kind of oil should i put in 97 rodeo v6?


You can basically use any oil you want. If you do regular oil changes Go with the less expensive. If you skip oil changes . Go with a better grade/ name/ high mileage. I change mine 4 times a year and go with the cheapest I can find. I use 10w30 in the winter time and switch to 10w40 in the summer. I have 175,000 miles on my truck and haven't had a problem. I also use an oil ttreament in each oil change since I hit 100,000 miles. I put in one pint of treatment untill I hit 200,000, then I will go to one quart. I have done this with a couple of cars and when I sold them they still had at least 40 pounds of pressure. Also I only change my oil filter every other time.

No problems i have 76000 miles when does it require a tuneup


Most newer vehicles are on a 100,000 mile tune up mark now, I'm under the same concern with my 2006 Charger since my maintenance book never calls for a tune up. It's good through 105,000. Supposedly. As long as it continues to run fine I would wait until the 90,000 to 100,000 mark.

My jeep wrangler just passed 100,000 miles, what service does it need?


Here is the basic maintenance list for your Jeep:

~ Inspect lights and check tire pressure at least monthly or before & after each trail ride

~ Oil & filter change, chassis lubrication, differential and transfer-case fluids every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or 3 to 4 months - if you have recently crossed through water deep enough to submerge the centre of your hubs, replace the differential fluids as a precaution

~ Underhood belt and hose inspection every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or 3 to 4 months (every oil change)

~ Tire rotation and wheel balancing every 6,000 miles or every other oil change - driving offroad can knock wheel weights off a wheel, so you may need to have this done more frequently

~ Brake inspection every 6,000 miles or every other oil change - if you have rum brakes in the rear, ensure they are cleaned after each trail ride where you encountered deep mud/snow

~ Replace air filter every 12,000 to 24,000 miles or as indicated by inspection - dusty trails can shorten these intervals dramatically

~ Replace fuel filter every 24,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Automatic transmission service every 24,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Wheel alignment check every 12,000 to 24,000 miles or as indicated by tire wear - offroad driving can knock wheels out of alignment, so budget for an alignment every 3 months, then watch tread wear to see if it's needed

~ Cooling system flush and refill every 40,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Belt and hose replacement every 60,000 to 100,000 miles or 5 to 8 years

~ Engine timing belt replacement every 60,000 to 100,000 miles (when equipped) or 5 to 8 years

~ Air conditioning performance check annually, usually in the spring - be sure to run your A/C during the winter for brief period to ensure all hoses and valves stay lubricated and operable

What oil weight is best for my car with 100,000 miles


Okay, you should have synthetic oil running in your vehicle. And, if you still do, sticking with a 5W-30 Synthetic Brand is just fine. It is one of the advantages of running a synthetic oil over the old school 10W-30 petrolium oil.

You don't need anything special for having over 100,000 miles. Just keep up with your oil changes.

How do you know when youneed a tune up on a 2001ford taurus


Owner's manula will specify what needs to be done and when under the maintence chart. Newer cars generally go 60,000 to 100,000 miles before needing to replace the spark plugs. On most cars that is about all you do besides changing the oil (generally every 3,000 mile). Read the owner's manual and don't let a shop or a dealer sell you on the idea of speeding up the maintenance schedule (replacing things at 60,000 when the manual says to wait until 100,000).

Spark Plug Life


Hi.

30,000 miles is about right for changing standard spark plugs. You can install upgraded (and more expensive) Iridium tipped plugs which are claimed to last up to 100,000 miles but on a standard vehicle 30,000 is the correct replacement mileage interval.

Stick to the vehicles recommended service schedule and never mind what your friend says! Afterall these service intervals are already designed for a vehicle running on unleaded!

Carbon build up on plugs has a lot more to do with correct oil and oil filter changes than unleaded fuel.

Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer

Transmission sometimes shifts hard into next gear.


I would check the transmission and engine mounts but also it may be time for a transmission fluid change. It has a service interval just like oil. 50000 miles
