Since my wife only drives 6,000 miles per year, I've only changed the oil yearly. Now it has serious sludge build-up. Have I caused the problem?


Partially. I assume she mostly makes very short trips. This is part of the problem. I suggest you don't clean it. This will lead to other internal problems. Just keep doing what your doing until it dies one day. As long as it runs decent and you have oil pressure. And it doesn't knock(rod bearings) or tap(lifters). Just drive it. Again, just assuming, You are fixing an oil leak. You can clean the part you took off, just don't clean the engine. Your asking for problems if you do.

Transmission over temp light comes on. transmission works fine but once went into limp mode


have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal faults. Any high pressure leaks will cause heat. check the filter and while the pan is off adjust the bands and clutch packs . Check the radiator cores are not blocked as engine temperature will affect the transmission oil temperature . check oil level as extra oil will cause frothing and over heating.

2011 v6 camaro engine suddenly missing.


I think you got hold of a batch of stale gasoline, have seen it many times. This happens this time of year because they are using up all the winter blend gas so they can switch to the summer blend..

2011 Camaro engine miss-firing


Very hard to diagnose without trouble codes, but sounds like a fuel problem - bad gas, fuel filter plugging, fuel pressure regulator acting up, etc. I would certainly check fuel pressure at the engine with key on but not started, and then while trying to start.

In general how many miles (total) a 2002 Santa fe can run? When might it start giving problems with engine, transmission etc? Thanks


Difficult question with all the variables involved. I'll start by saying the Santa Fe is a decent vehicle, and has the potential to last a long time (many miles). However, as with any vehicle, how has it been driven and maintained? If you purchased it new, drove it 'gently' (no racing, wild off road driving, starting it on a 0 degree day and revving the engine to high rpm, etc) maintained it well (fluid and filter changes on a regular basis, topping off fluids (not letting the oil go down a quart before adding- top it off when its only down 1/2 qt at most), fixing anything that starts to go (before a small problem becomes a big one), you could probably get 200k miles or more out the vehicle. What kind of driving do you do? Highway mostly? The # of miles over the life of the vehicle would be highest, if you do short drives around the city, that is tougher on a car, total miles of the life of the vehicle would be less. If you bought the car used, there is the big unknown factor--how did the previous owner(s) take care of the car? Was it owned by a little old lady that only drove it to church on Sunday, resulting in 1k miles driven a year? Sounds great, but letting a car sit w/out driving is actually bad for the car. Has the car been kept clean? If it's driven in an area w/ snow, is the vehicle washed often to remove road salt? Some cars sheet metal fails before the engine and tranny do because of corrosive road salt. So, to answer your question, 'it depends..." Good luck.

When car is cold oil pressuer is at 75 lbs when car is warmed uped it drops to 40 lbs (v6 3800) when warmed uped and give it gas it goes up to 60 lbs but when i stop it dropes to 45 lbs why is this please...


When the oil is cold it is thinner or watery and the pump moves more oil as it turns making the pressure go up. As the oil warms up it thickens and the pump moves less oil letting the pressure go down. Increasing the engine speed makes the pump turn faster, therefore it moves more oil and the pressure goes up. Changing oil grades will change the numbers somewhat, for example 10W40 will give you different readings than 5W30. I don't see any problem with the readings you put in your posting. I wouldn't be concerned until the warm idle pressure gets down to about 30 or a little lower. Hope this helps.

Low oil when engine warms up gmc sierra 1995


30-40 psi of oil pressure is fine for many vehicles including your GMC. I am assuming that the truck has more than 100,000 miles on it and still has the original engine in it. By rule of thumb you only need 10 psi per 1000 rpms in a typical street driven engine to give adequate oil pressure to keep the bearings from oil starvation. The oil pressure is typically higher when initial start up occurs because it is more viscous due to the temperature of the oil as the engines oil warms up the visconsity thins out and the oil flows more smoothly. The drop in oil pressure is a normal occurance. Above 45 is more than required for a daily driven street engine. I believe that the specs on that engine only list 30- 45 psi.
