When I drive my dodge intrepid 2003 at a speed of 70 miles per hour the engine overheats. What type of maintenance or repair is needed?

try flushing the radiator and engine block, make sure the radiator is free from dirt etc.check oil and water levels after flushing, check engine oil see if its clean( ie not a thick dirty black color)if it is dirty you could also clean that as well with flushing oil then refill with new ,when filling radiator add the recomended amount of antifreeze as this also helps to run cooler.
Hope this helps the problem.

Mechanic wants to change my power steering fluid because it is burned. 45k miles on my altima hybrid. also wants to clean my fuel injectors with an i v system?

Power steering flush can't hurt. In fact flushing the power steering systems on some vehicles has solved power steering issues. Power steering fluid is one of the few fluids that is not filtered. Yet it is subject to contamination, heat cycles, shearing, and compression just like many of the other fluids in your car.

Unless there is a problem with the fuel injection system a service is not needed.

2004 Pontiac Vibe has 77,000 miles. Transmission fluid appears brownish. Do you recommend a flush? Should pan be dropped and filter be replaced? Can a flush cause damage to the transmission?

I recomend servicing the transmision every 50,000 miles. ie: drop pan replace filter and gasket, clean the sump. A flush also gets more of the fluid changed but I would do that in conjunction with a normal service.

Nissan Altima 02. heater problems

Have you tried asking them to just flush the system, as well as reverse flush? Sometimes that will clean it out enough to get you where it needs to be for now. If not, I'd try that, at another shop, obviously, if for no other reason, a second opinion. Try one that specializes in radiators if there is one in your area. If no luck, and your handy at all, I can tell you what I did to clean core out a few times that worked pretty well for me, and only cost me about $20-$30, and a little time. Let me know if your up to it, but I'd gamble the cost of a flush, and my method, before I'd pay $100's of dollars for new core.

When should i change trans oil

One sure way to tell, is if your transmission fluid is not cherry red. Its supposed to be a bright red color. If its not, then you should have it flushed out and replaced. Good luck.
