Can you program your lights to turn off sooner?

If not, then you may investigate running a switch in-line with your larking lights so that you can control them manually.

In the morning when 1st starting the car, the climate control does not work


If the climate control is on "auto" there is a delay before starting. For 15 minutes it is either freezing cold outside or needs repair. Depending where you live. Well anyway a way around the delay is to go to a manual setting and the system should start blowing right away.

Of course if it hasn't warmed up yet the air will be cold!!

Track the temperature gauge on the dash. As the temperature lift's off and approaches normal range heat should be coming from the vents,

New cars that are super efficient are very slow to heat up. The old gas gushers had plenty of heat to spare

So if you think it is cold where you live heck out the videos,

My Nissan leaf charges to only 70 miles now.


I have a leaf, what are your outter lights telling you? Has it dropped a bar of capacity? Remember too, the leaf remembers how you last drove, so that affects it\'s guess at range. Try parking it up for 5 minutes, then drive it very nicely for 1 minutes creeping up and down the driveway THEN put it on charge, may help its guess be a little higher.

Oil light on


The light usually indicates that your engine oil is LOW. You should add engine oil (immediately) so that your engine doesn't seize up and your vehicle stops working (until you replace the engine). If you live/drive in cold climate, you can add 5W30 oil ... in the winter. Or use 10W30 .

How do i reset climate control


There are a couple of options. Disconnect the battery, then drive the vehicle around without using the AC for 10 min, if the AC is defaulted to come on after a battery interuption, then shut the car down then turn it on again. You are trying to get the electronic actuator to reset and resume proper function. Another option is to try this: Start the car, adjust the pax side full hot, drivers full cold, wait 30 sec then shut car down, then start car back up and reverse the settings, pax full cold, drivers full hot. In both solutions, the vent actuators are stuck at either the full open or full closed, so you are trying to get it to 'self check' and allow them to resume proper function. After two years, I simply removed them altogether since I live where it is hot an only need cold.works just fine....

Should I use 10w30 or 10w40 oil


If you live in cold climate I would recommend 10w30 for winter use, it's a bit thinner and will start better. However if the truck is used hard, such as for towing loads I would use the 10w40. If you live in a warm climate I would use 10w40 all the time.

Wats the best motor oil for a 94 toyota camry with 100,000 miles... 15W-40,20W-40, 20W-50


Climate has as much to do with your choice of motor oil as the amount of miles on the engine. If you live in a cold climate and your winter temps are often below freezing, you'll want to go with a lighter oil that will circulate better in the cold temperatures. Conversely, in a hot climate, a heavier oil that won't break down in viscosity would be a good choice. As far as the mileage goes, most oils are about the same and as long as you change your oil often, whatever oil you choose based on climate should suit you and the car well. I hope this clarifies your question. Best of luck!

Vitara JX 1.6 soft-top. Made in Spain 1998. Engine runs at 2000rpm when cold and only returns to idle after 10 mins or 6 miles in warm conditions. Can i adjust anything ? ps. I live in England


maybe slow,cold start,air control valve or,possibly normal for temp in morning,I live in Australia and cars can take ages to slow down in winter eg1 to 3 deg cel...and very quickly warm up in summer..eg....idle slows down in 1/4 time,have a look at the car if you can park it in warmer conds... to see if its quicker as Toyotas do this normally for fast warm up,lastly has it been well serviced...looked after??

No air conditioning, flashing climate light


You should make sure you have proper charge for sure.has your battery gone dead lately? I know on some of them digital climate controls will act exactly like this and have to be reset or go through a setup sequence.

What oil type


Go with the shop manual's recommendation - it's put out by the manufacturer. If they list different viscosities for cold vs warm weather, you may benefit by following that if you live in a climate with cold winters (ie, 5W30 in winter, and 10W30 in summer).
