    I'm just about ready to scrap the car cause GM won't release the specs to the public. My car is accelerating very slow between 1000 & 2000 rpm. I have to literally rev my engine to 3000 rpm on take off's and shifting to gain any power. If I take the car to a mechanic all I hear is "This looks like a dealership problem"..."we haven't experienced anything like this yet!!!". Every time I need a part I have to go to the dealership cause GM hasn't released the parts to the auto parts stores yet. Timing Belt, Spark Plug Coil Packs, Valve Cover Gasket, Catalic Converter...All dealership purchases. Get rid of this car as soon as you can...if you plan on keeping it...Check the TSB reports (Technician Service Bulliten) and then think again. The TSB report is what GM sends to the dealership for "Problemary" new test market vehicles when a repeat malfunction occurs. So far I have read about the Control arm in the stearing being faulty from the manufacture and the timing belt may snap before 30,000 miles and destroy the engine.

SOURCE: Mazda E-BG5P tune up specs

At an auto parts store, if you tell them the car you have (year, make, and engine), they can look up the correct one for you. If you go with the Bosch Platinum +2 or Platinum +4, they'll come pre-gapped, so you don't have to gap them yourself. I was unable to find a listing for what the proper gap is, but at the store they can either tell you or sell you a pre-gapped plug that you won't have to worry about setting.

SOURCE: tune up

At 60,000 you should have all the major things done if you haven't already:
oil change(every 3000)
air filter change(every 15,000)
coolant flush(every 30,000)
spark plugs and wires(every 30,000)
transmission fluid & filter change(every 30,000)
brakes (as needed)
PCV valve (every 20,000)

You can wait until about 75000 miles to do your timing belt.

Hope this helps

no points on ur car (check from the center of distributor cap and follw that wire, it leads to the COIL) and gap is usually indicated under the hood on a sticker. Should be right near the front of the hood (on the underside) or just above the rad.

I have a knock sensor and a 1 -misfire code. I recently gave my car a tune up and within a month i had a check engine light on. Can you tell me what i should check? Thanks


If you could elaborate a bit more on what was done to the car we could pinpoint the problem right away. However, typically a tune up is plugs, wires, cap, and filter. Given those four changes, I would point my finger at the plugs. Many of times spark plugs do not come pre-gapped. Meaning the distance between the metal and the electrode, white looking ceramic are not measured per spec. If you did not gap the plugs, I would recommend taking them out and adjusting the gap to spec. You can call the dealer and ask them for the recommended spec. I have attached a pic of a spark plug with an arrow indicating how the gap is measured. You will need a feeler gauge to measure the gap and adjust.rltofixya_3.jpg


Without proper gap the engine can/will misfire.

How do you tune up a 2004 chevy colorado 5 cylinder?


A tune up would usually include replacing the plugs and fuel filter.The plugs are under the ignition coils which are located on top of the motor.just remove 1 coil at a time and replace the plug for that coil.You will need an extension to reach the plugs.Make sure and gap the plugs.The gap specs is 0.042 in.You can also use a piece of vacuum line to install the new plugs back into the hole.I believe a 7/32 hose will work.If you are having certain problems let me know and I can help you further.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Needs tune up what parts do i need


spark plugs, fuel filter pcv valve, spark plug wires higher quality, wd40 to lubricate all movable throttle parts, (cables) etc, on this car rotor or cap usually do not apply. make sure your spark plugs are gapped correctly and be careful not to drop them on the ground or get them dirty from oil debris around spark plug holes when installing new plugs. Your owners manual will give you maintainence information on suggested and required maintainence, if your miles are 40,000 or more since the last tuneup suggest you have the transmission oil and trans filter changed (new trans filter kit and silicone would be needed) Good Luck and I hope this was very helpful to you

Spark plug gap setting for a 98 range rover


what have you replaced with your tune up? should change plugs and plug wires, as well as the fuel filter, and air filter. the plugs should be set to factory spec.. be absolutely sure you've got the correct wires going to the correct plugs. the coil packs are a pain to get to but if all else fails, it may be time to replace them.

I have a 2005 Aveo need to know when we need to get a "tune up" is it for 100,000 miles??


1st tune up is 100,000 miles, but there are other things that need attention then as well such as the timing belt which is far more important, also the cooling system hoses and coolant should be replaced, spark plugs will not strand you, a timing belt and overheated engine will.
