It could be one of three idle control valve,leaking intake gasket,or out of timing or even possibly you need to clean out your throttle body.

SOURCE: poor gas mileage on my jeep liberty

Did this happen overnight or was it a gradual loss? Did you do any kind of repair before you lost the gas mialage? Is there a check engine light on or did it come on and go off? Did anything weird happen before the jeep got bad gas mileage? It's hard to diagnose a problem like this without actually touching the car.
Any other info might help me steer you in the right direction.

when was the last time you put in fuel injector cleaner? I put in Lucas Oil Injector cleaner every other or every oil change.

There are alot of factors affecting your gas mileage. Tire wear, tire pressure, wheel alignment, air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, oxygen sensors, just to name a few. So to say what you need is just shooting in the dark without more information. I would probably start with your oxygen sensors, and then perform a tuneup. If your vehicle pulls to one side or the other when driving on the highway you need to stop into the shop for a wheel alignment.

Do you have a gas smell in vehicle if you do there check and make sure that you are NOT loosing gas by a leak in the fuel line that was replaced or anyother part of the fuel sytem for that fact. If there is NO leak then the pressure from the pump may be too high and therefore dumping too mucj fuel into chambers but if this is true the vehicle may have a hesitation on take off or may run a little roughand a rich burning smell from exhaust, Check these things out make sure that the fuel pressure at the injector rail is correct refer to your repair manal for exact specs,because I NOT sure what it its, good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: Recommended Engine Oil

You can keep using that oil with no problems. Most people don't really understand what the numbers on the bottle actually mean. There is a really long definition but here is the short version: The first number represents the pour point of the oil at freezing (@32 degrees F).
The second number represents the protection offered, compared to a "straight weight" oil eg: 30, 40, 50, at 212F degrees. Therefore, at freezing, your oil will pour (or flow) like a 20 weight oil, and give wear protection of a 50 weight oil at 212 degrees.
The quality of any oil is based upon the chemical makeup of the base oil, some have a high parafin content and are prone fo sludge formation, while better ones do not and tend to last longer. The ability to "change weights" with temperature is controlled by an additive "package" which is part of the product formula, as are other features such as anti foaming and the ability to keep particles in suspension.
If you stay with better oils such as Castrol, Quaker State, Valvoline etc. You will have no problems. (especially because in your area you don't go from sub zero to 100's).
Don't forget to add a quality filter to your oil changes. This is as important as your oil!!!
Good luck with your car!!!

Idels up and down 95 jeep grand cherokee

Go to Walmart or local part store and buy a can of sea foam and pour it in you gas tank with a quarter tank of gas. You can also pour a little bit in your vacuum line that connects to brake manifold. Rev the engine to about 3 to 4 thousand rpms. Keep doing this till white smoke stops or alot of black junk is coming out of the exhaust. This is a tune up in a can and will clean carburetors and injectors. You can also put in oil before a oil change and do the same thing to help clean engine.

Did a tune up on my 91 dakota, but still burning lots of gas. change wires, sparkplugs, cap, rotor, and oxygensensor but still burning gas out the tail pipe

Try running fuel injector cleaner through the gas tank. A fuel injector might be stuck open, letting lots of fuel into the engine. Also try replacing your fuel pressure regulator, and inspect the fuel tank return lines.
Good luck

I have a 95 blazer 4.3 engine comes up with a random mutltiple missfire.It idels rough and runs rough going slower speeds 25-35 mph,but at the speed limit or faster it runs alot better,what could be the...

Sounds like needs a tune up, New spark plugs-wires, could be running on 5 cil. put a new fuel filter on, this helps sometimes. Buy gas treatment at Autozone, you may have water in your gas, run all the gas out and buy gas at a different place than before. Try and get 91 oct. better fuel may help.

95 Carmaro doesn't start and backfires

My first thought is battery replacement. Cold weather will sink a marginal battery. After jumping it, does it turn over faster, adequitly. If a battery is weak, on a cold morning, spark plugs will not get enough energy to fire. Backfire through the exhaulst can also be caused by too much gas. Make sure the choke is not stuck closed. Hope that helps l

Rough ideling

I would recommend, at this point, to take the vehicle to someone who could do what we call an "Induction Cleaning". Dodge engines are noted for deposits forming on the sealing faces of the valves, resulting in poor cumbustion. A compression test might also reveal this. Also, some real good fuel injection cleaner in the fuel tank would also be advised.
