Question about 2004 Hyundai XG350

2002 XG350 - Do I need new timing and drive belts?

Car only has 38,000 miles on it. Dealer says car is 7 years old and needs new timing and drive belts. Is this true?
I just put my 3rd new battery in after replacing original battery in 2004 while under warranty. Isn't that excessive for years and miles?

Timing belt and most drive belts are good for 70,000miles, i think the mechanic trying to take you for a ride, as for the drive belts inspect them if there is any cracking ware marks etc replace them but seriously if they look like new which they should with only that many miles would not need replacing.

Tire wear 2011 hyundai elantra


take the car to a suspension specialist shop and have the rear wheels aligned first
have the suspension checked for worn mounts or bad springs
it is very important that the rear end is aligned before the front end
suspect that the suspension rubbers need replacing as it is over 6 years old
the tyre rotation is a myth perpetrated on drivers to sell tyres
when the tyre construction was cross-ply and not radials yes rotation then on cross-ply tyres could get the wear to even out but with radials once the wear is started then the tyre continually wears in that pattern regardless of which wheel it is on
even if you take that tyre of the car and put it on a trailer , it will still continue to wear in that pattern
tyres are no longer rotated but simply put front to back on the same side other wise the belts flex in a new direction in the tread and fail earlier that expected
besides that fact that tyre rotation will not allow you to monitor for suspension problems or wheel alignment problems and cost you 4 tyres at a time instead of two

Do the miles transfer when changing cluster on 2004 mazda 3


A magician might be able to do that, but no mechanic can. Whatever miles is on the cluster from the previous car-that's what your "new" mileage is. Write it down when installed, then you can always figure the true miles on your car and engine by comparing the old cluster's odometer with the new one. See? The old odometer is the true mileage. Whatever miles you put on the new odometer should be added to the old odometer's miles to give a true mileage of the car and engine.

2005 Dodge Neon - Intermintently for 7 months the car won't start. The engine tries to turn over but will not start unless I give it gas. Has been into dealer 4 times and they first did a tune up, then...


I say dont accept vehicle back form the dealer, till its right. Sounds as though the throttle position sensor orMAS is bad. The dealer really should be able to fix it.

tire rotation, air filter, breather element,
Inspections:
Timing belt for wear and tear
other belts be it V-belts or Serpentine
radiator fluid (older than 3 years needs a flush and fill)
transmission fluid and filter change. if its a manual transmission then change the gear oil
Battery inspection
Ignition system--- Spark plug gaps,wires,cap and rotor and coil inspection.
Motor Mounts inspection
Other things good for a car of that high of mileage are flushing out the old brake fluid and filling with new....same for power steering.
mostly inspections
Last but not least... put a can of Seafoam* into your gas tank and drive it on the highway for at least 30-45 minutes. congrats on your high mileage honda :-]
