Before you Shell out the Cash for a New or Used Tranny, Try Changing the Gears in the Rear End. Probably have got 3:73 Gears now. Let me Know. This will Help on your Mileage and Performance. You could also Purchase a Hypertech Chip for your Onboard Computer. Got one in my 95' Silverado and Boosted HP by 75! and I am STILL getting 21 MPG on the Hwy! Total HP on mine is now 366!

Your cheapest bet is to go with a different gear ratio in the rear diff(the lower the ratio the higher speed and less rpm) but if your truck has a 3 speed automatic you can put a 4 speed with overdrive (700r4 would be the best)
is your truck 2wd or 4wd?
hope this helps!

When I fuel up my oil pressure goes up i.e. 1/2 tank of fuel over 80 on the oil guage at same time fuel consumption goes up drasticaly


Adding fuel to the fuel tank is absolutely unrelated to to any change in engine oil pressure.
The oil pressure will be higher when the engine oil is cooler and lower when the engine oil has warmed up.

If you are experiencing abnormally high oil pressure on start up I suspect you are running the incorrect type and grade of oil in the engine. Only use the oil specification(type and grade) listed by the manufacturer for your engine and nothing else.. If you are unsure what that is then it is specified in your owners manual for the vehicle.

High fuel consumption has also nothing to do with your engine oil pressure. If you are experiencing high fuel consumption then please read and examine these factors..........................

Car is running very rough after it was run out of gas. Suspect it has to do with injectors after adding fuel. Help please.


Often times the lower octane fuels have some sedement that settles at the bottom of your tank. So when you run out the gas often times these sedenments work there way through the fuel system. Try and fill up with a high octane (91 or higher) and add a fuel conditioner and drive it. This will sometimes burn off the sedement and help to unclog injectors. If this doesn't work then you may need to replace your fuel filters because they may be clogged.

2009 chevy aveo ran out of gas now it wont crank


No crank to a mechanic means the starter motor doesn't spin the engine over, is this what you mean? Or do you mean the engine cranks over but will not fire up and run? If it is the latter have you added at least 3 gallons of gas to the tank to make sure the electric fuel pump inside the tank can properly prime? If not do that, also you can spray starting fluid into the engine engine air intake pipe after adding the 3 gallons and see if that gets it going. If it still will not start you have burned up the fuel pump and you will need to drop the fuel tank and replace the pump, remember the pump is cooled and lubricated by the gasoline it runs in, so when you run low on fuel or out you can very quickly severely damage the small electric fuel pump. Never let the gas gauge level go below 1/8 tank to prevent premature fuel pump failure.

I have a 1994 Chevy C1500 w/ 4.3 liter and my plugs are fouling out about every 500 miles or less and everything else maintanence wise I've replaced resently. Can someone give an idea on what need


Does the truck run right? Does it smell real gassy, fuel mileage go south? If it is fouling plugs that fast it either has to be burning a lot of fuel or oil. Is there a check engine light on? Engine wore out, burning a lot of oil. Fuel injector stuck, using a lot of gas. Air filter dirty, making it burn way rich. I would think this truck would really smell bad if it is fouling out the plugs that fast.

Amber warning light on (steering assist failure)


Check for error codes which can be the best indicator to the fault. You can start to suspect the fuel, the fuel filter , the fuel pump , a drop in fuel pressure at higher RPM. ALso check for problems in the electronic ignition section which can show faults at higher RPM.

Fuel type


Having a relatively low compression engine, you can run an 87 octane fuel in there. If ethanol is added in your area, up to 10% is fine. If you do have ethanol, don't bother adding dry gas because the ethanol is dry gas. (any alcohol is hygroscopic). Adding a higher octane fuel is a waste of $ because unless you are getting detonation, it does nothing for you.

What type of gas to use in 1998 ford expedition


Run the regular low octane (87) as the truck is computer controlled & the higher octane fuel burns slower & older cars with adjustable timing benefit with the slower burning fuel because the timing can be advanced further, but the computer controlled cars also control timing, so the more expensive gas is wasted & could cause emission problems down the road due to unburnt fuel running through the cat. & rest of pollution controls. If the vehicle detinates or pings when driven then run the higher octane fuel & run injector cleaner through to clean up the fuel system. Lucas is the best that I have used.
