Stay on top of your recommended preventative maintenance. A vehicle is one of the worst investments you can make, they are very cheap to maintain for the first 50k miles then it starts adding up very quickly. Which is why many people will lease new cars for only a couple years.

How to save fuel and make your vehicle last longer, too


Improving fuel economy is easy - just take it easy. It willmake your vehicle last longer, too. Here are some specific tips on how to savemoney on both fuel and repairs.
  • Keep your tires inflated at the correct pressure. Under-inflation causes tire wear and wastes fuel.
  • Do not carry unneeded weight in your vehicle. Excess weight puts a heavier load on the engine, causing greater fuel consumption.
  • Avoid lengthy warm-up idling. Once the engine is running smoothly, begin driving - but gently. Remember, however, that on cold winder days this may take a little longer.
  • Keep automatic transmission selector lever into "D" when engine breaking is not required. Driver with the selector lever in "4" will reduce the fuel economy. (This is referring to vehicles with Automatic drive)
  • Accelerate slowly and smoothly. Avoid jackrabbit starts. Get into the high gear as quickly as possible.
  • Avoid long engine idling. If your have a long wait and you are not in traffic, it is better to turn off the engine and start again later.
  • Avoid engine lugging or over-reversing. Use a gear position suitable for the road on which you are traveling.
  • Avoid continuous speeding up and slowing down. Stop-and-go driving wastes fuel.
  • Avoid unnecessary stopping and braking. Maintain a steady pace. Try to time the traffic signals so you only need to stop as little as possible or take advantage of through streets to avoid traffic lights. Keep a proper distance from other vehicle to avoid sudden breaking. This will also reduce wear on your breaks.
  • Avoid heaving traffic or traffic jams whenever possible.
  • Do not rest your foot on the clutch or break pedal. This causes premature wear, overheating and poor fuel economy.
  • Maintain a moderate speed on high ways. The faster you drive, the greater the fuel consumption. By reducing your speed, you will cut down on fuel consumption.
  • Keep the front wheels in proper alignment. Avoid hitting the curb and slow on rough roads. Improper alignment not only causes faster tire wear, but also puts an extra load on the engine, which, in turn, wastes fuel.
  • Keep the bottom of your vehicle free from mud, etc. This not only lessens weight but also helps prevent corrosion.
  • Keep your vehicle tuned-up and in top shape. A dirty air cleaner, carburetor out of adjustment, improper valve clearance, dirty plugs, dirty oil and grease, breaks not adjusted, etc. all lower engine performance and contribute to poor fuel economy. For longer life of all parts and lower operating costs, keep all maintenance work on schedule, and if you often drive under severe conditions, see that your vehicle receives more frequent maintenance.
Good luck.

The alternator is good. Why is there low charging in the system?


How low ? Do you have a battery symbol or charge light lit on the dash ? Most newer vehicles the charging system is controlled by the PCM or ECM An sometimes the charge out put may not show a lot of voltage . 12.9 Are You Smarter than Smart Charging System Diagnostic News An sometimes they set DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes !

How can i maintain my truck?


Maintaining your truck means you need to check up on the oil and transmission fluids are these are used up twice as much by towing vehicles. you must also remember to rotate the tires and check on the tire pressure regularly. Also using the appropriate towing parts helps the tow vehicle last longer.

MAINTENANCE LIGHT IS ON AT 60000 MILES. WHAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM<


The light is telling you that it is time to perform regular maintainance on the vehicle. If it is not reset even after an oil change, after 10,000 miles it will stay on after the vehicle is started and remain on until it is reset. I would suggest getting any required maintainence done on the vehicle but you can reset the light yourself if you want. The way to do it is turn the ignition switch to the off position, engine not running. Push and hold the select/reset button to the right of the speedo in the instrument cluster (see arrow in picture below) and hold. While keeping pressed in, turn the key to the "on" position (not starting the car). Remain holding the button down for about ten seconds or until the light goes off. That should reset the maintanence required light for you and gives you 10,000 mile more until it does it again. I hope this helps and good luck.

My 2000 T 4Runner has 200,000 miles on it. Should I start looking for a newer one? It still runs very well, although it's had a few problems. Is $16,000 a good price for 2004 4Runner V8 with 90,000 miles...


It is really your choice but your 4Runner is capable of allot more miles with good maintenance. If your looking to save money the V8 4Runner in not a good option.

Have 2005 Grand Cherokee, had oil changed as usual every 3000 miles they recommended a fuel induction service, rear differential service and power steering flush are these needed or what vehicle has 51000...


Most of that is not scheduled maintenance items. I would have your fuel filter replaced, if not done yet, it should be done every 20,000 miles. Alot of these places get a small commission for selling added services. I would go by the maintenance schedule in your owners manual.

Double wrench sign on with a daily countdown


What you've described is the service indicator for your vehicle. It's telling you that if you want to maintain the reliability and manufacturer warranty on your car then you you should arrange to have your vehicle serviced.

There are ways to reset this without having the car serviced, but the Smart ForTwo is very intolerant of skimped servicing and you'll find that ignoring it = huge repair bills. Servicing the Smart is cheap and does not have to be done by a Smart dealer, but to maintain the warranty any non-franchised outlet must provide documentation to confirm that their servicing has been exactly according to the manufacturer's schedule. The work can easily be done by any competent DIY mechanic, but the warranty is invalidated unless the DIYer is a professionally qualified car mechanic.

My car will not start


Has it started before? Does it have fuel and a battery? Is there a spark at the plugs?
Did anything unusual happen the last time the car was driven e.g. oil warning lamp on, grinding noises louder than the radio?
Is the outdoor temperature below -18 deg C and if so, does it have anti-freeze and a plugged-in block heater?
I don't know the vehicle model. It may have smart electronics ie smarter than you or me and is protecting itself from something nasty...recall the movie 2001???
If all else fails, read the operator guide book and call the nearest dealer.
Good luck, Jenni.
