With a stick shift, the red arrow indicates it is (long over-due) time to shift to the next higher gear. I shift at about 1300-1400 (when the engine just starts to "pull") and get 39 to 42 mpg during the summer months, and 36-39 during winter. This is all - round driving.. not just highway. Just pretend your most sensitive body part is between your foot and the gas pedal, and you will be amazed the mileage these cars can get. You should be in 5th gear by 30 mph.. By the way, my car has the original clutch with 195000 miles on the clock. No brag, just fact.

Hello, I noticed you have a red arrow on you dash showing up. Your car is a manual shift transmission and the arrow is indicating a preset shift interval to help you save gas and performance quality. When the light comes on its telling you simply select another gear. Please rate my answer. Thank You

On the dashboard circle that shows the numbers that tell how the engine is revving (?), etc...a red light has been coming on and then going off a few minutes later...symbol: small black arrow pointing down...


Red lights are always a warning of some kind. In this case you don't mention the make or model of car but I'm willing to bet it means the water level is low. Check the coolant level or the washer bottle level.

A lighted arrow (pointed upward) appears in the lower right corner just below dash display while driving. It goes on and off. I do not have a owners manual. What does this mean?


Is your vehicle a standard (manual) transmission. If it is, this is an indicator light to let you know you should be shifting to the next higher gear.
