2011 Chevy traverse... 10,000 miles. Piston blew and they say we need a brand new engine? How does this happen? It's brand new! Only had it 8 months. Do we have rights....lemon law something?


Hi Amy! I have the same problem! My engine failed, because the oil filter gasket came loose, and fell into the piston. Needless to say, the whole engine became clogged. They replaced my 2011 Traverse's engine with a new one, but now it has a hard time starting. I'm picking it up tomorrow, hopefully for the last time. If it's the same problem, I will contact a Lemon Law type Attorney. Any feedback? thanks!

Service lights


Well, let me just say that if you have gone 10,000 miles without servicing your brand-new Lexus, you are a LOT braver than I would ever be. I certainly do not have the gold available to pay for the possible consequeces of pulling that one off. When was the last time you even checked your engine oil level? I have seen MANY vehicles run completely out of oil between 3000 mile services and completely DESTROY the engines! 10,000 miles is REALLY taking HUGE chances!

You may have 2 separate problems...One for the oil needing service and one for a problem with your AWD system. However, Toyota and Lexus are known for disabling things like AWD, ABS, Traction Control, etc. when the engine computer detects things like low oil pressure or low oil levels. This can cause several warning lamps to all come on at the same time.

GET YOUR VEHICLE SERVICED!!! Hopefully, you will be one of the lucky ones and have not done any serious damage by not getting it serviced when you should have.

Your oil should be changed every 3000 miles (Or every 5000 miles if you are using full-synthetic oil). You should also check the oil level between services AT LEAST every 1000 miles (or more often, if you are having to add oil at 1000 miles). For a properly maintained vehicle, checking the oil level between oil changes SHOULD seem a total waste of time. However, it is the single, MOST IMPORTANT thing you can spend your time on when it comes to getting a lot of miles from your investment. If your engine starts using (burning) oil or if it starts leaking oil, you will not know about it in time to save your engine if you are not in the habit of checking it on a regular basis.

Engine light on with flashing cruise control


This happened to me when I forgot to change my engine oil when it was due for an oil change. After I changed my engine oil, it took about 200 miles for the Engine light and flashing cruise control to turn off.

We just had a clutch replaced in our 2003 10,000 mile Ford Foucs 1.6 by a Ford main dealer, when it was returned second gear syncro had gone. When asked they said it was quite common? Do Focus suffer from...


I am just a bit suspicious of the coincidence between clutch change and synchro, especially on an vehicle so little used (10,000 yes?). Can you be sure that the gear box you have is the one you came in with. If you have the VIN number it should be possible to obtain a print out containing a list of the serial numbers of all major components (engine and gear box). Maybe I am just paranoid but it maybe worth checking just to rule out the possibility that rather than change the clutch they swapped out the gearbox for one that was just lying around. Stranger things have happened..

Sitting still at a light, clutch half way in in neutral, pushed the clutch all the way in to go into first and I heard a popping noise, then it was like the clutch is sticky but with no pressure, its like...


UNfortunately it sounds like your clutch has failed...and is slipping.....it sounds like the pressure plate may have fractured......and considering it is a wrx, this would definetly be the weakest point as the gearboxes are almost indestructible......

My 2008 WRX has 22K. The clutch peddle started


Subaru makes/sells a good product. Too bad you've had issues with the clutch in/of your WRX. Since you have 25 years of experience driving manual transmission car(s) you should understand that the problem can not be pinpointed without taking the component apart. Your vehicle is under the manufacturer warranty so Subaru should repair/replace the defective clutch. After the WRX is fixored sell it and buy another VW......Peace

02 impreza wrx problem with turbo PLEASE HELP


This is not the turbo it is the over-powering the clutch, it happens in 5th because that is when most worn clutches slip, it is the biggest load, replace your clutch.
