Not really a problem, more of a pain in the ***.. Ive had my MR2 for about 3 yrs now.... got 275k+ miles rebuilt eng once at 15k.... still running strong, now heres the thing, theres no repair manuals for this car anywhere. not at auto parts stores not on chiltons website, hell even ebay doesnt have any.. the only place to get it is through dealer which costs more than i think its worth... (99$-150$$) now my question is, is there a site that i can either A) download a PDF of the whole manual, or B) buy the manual? my toyota is 88 MR2 with 5 Speed Stick. thnx for the help.

The only thing I know to tell you is to try www.alldatadiy.com. I just looked up your particular vehicle and it acted like it was going to let me pay for it, which would make me think that it has the info you are looking for. Obviously I didn't want to pay for it so you will have to give it a go yourself to find out. I hope it's there for you! Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

Try actually asking the autoparts store if they can order it for you. I just purchased a Hanes Manual from Napa. They had to order it for me. $16.

Believe it or not you just said the solution to your own problem manufacturers specs requires for any adjustments to engine idle or other carburator adjustments to be preformed while the engine is idling and at normal operating temp in plain english let the car warm up then make your idle and mixture adjustments if this doesnt solve it i would check the auto choke and make sure it is opening at normal operating temp hope this helps good luck

Motor has 200000 miles and smokes pretty bad ive tried all kinds of no smoke products but nothing helps what do you think it is blue smoke


Doesn't really matter with 200,000 miles and blue oil smoke.
Pull the motor out,then decide what to do.
You can break it down, if you really want to find the cause.
It still has to be rebuilt or replaced

You wasted your money on any auto part store product,
for any application.
You only go to the parts store for parts,no chemicals,no injector cleaner,
all unnecessary and nearly useless and sometime harmfull products.

2006 BMW 325i - low oil level 5 different times. 12,500 miles, 21,290 miles 27,216 miles (dealer replaced head), 33,500 miles & 42,100 miles. Dealer claims nothing wrong with occasional low oil!! only...


There is a lot wrong with "low oil" and low oil is not normal in a low mileage healthy engine.

The dealer is fobbing you off in the hope you will go away.

If the oil is being changed at least every 5000 miles or so there should be minimum oil depletion between changes with only very minor top up needed. Some oil consumption is normal but it should be minimal.

If the oil level is dropping to a very low level in about 4000 - 5000 miles of normal motoring you have a significant problem. The oil is either leaking out or the engine is burning excessive oil or a combination. If there is no leak through faulty seals or by other means such as oil escaping into the cooling passages of the engine, then there is excessive burning.

These engines are known for excessive oil consumption because the problem is a common one in the 06, 05, 04 and previous year builds back to about 98/99. The dealers know all about this problem - as does BMW - and they will try to fob you off until the car is out of warranty because the fix is expensive.

From what you say the problem has not been fixed on your car. Document the oil loss and insist on your warranty rights because your engine is using excessive oil and this is NOT normal in a properly functioning motor with as few miles as yours has. Make it clear to the dealer that you are well aware that excessive oil consumption is a common problem in many of the 325 petrol engines and you want it fixed under warranty.

Then sell the car as these vehicles will cost you quite a bit in repairs once out of warranty and once you clock up around 60000 miles or more. If you have an auto you can expect major problems at about 65000 miles (later if you are lucky) and replacement of the transmission will be necessary. Once you notice any significant problem with the auto transmission it is on it's way out.

My 2007 Honda Crv is growling when backing up Honda replaced the rear differential oil at 8000miles and once again at 15k the problem has returned. Has Honda come up with a better solution than replacing...


No. Contaminated rear diff fluid causes this noise while making sharp turns. By changing your service interval to every 15k miles will keep the noise under control.

How often do you change a fuel filter on a 2005 chevy impala


I usually change the fuel filters every two years like coolant system and transmition flushes , but may have to more often if driving above average mileage, running contaminated/dirty fuel, or if the fuel tank is rusty or has a contaminant such as varnish, water, alcohol, debris, etc... in the tank.

1998 Jaguar XJ8L Gear Box (transmission) Fault Light On


If you check, the replacement the dealer installed in your car was likely a "certa" unit which is another word for a factory rebuild. Therefore a rebuilt transmission will not be anything "new"
If you press the issue, you will likely get Jag to replace yours with another certa unit. You may need to make a bit more "noise" though.
In choosing a private shop to do this work, ask around and see who has a really good reputation."Branded" shops are franchises and as different as dogs and cats when it comes to quality. If you have friends with a similar car, see who they have used. If you use a private repair shop ask who they "job" their trans work out to.
It may take a bit of shopping but you likely will find someone who can do the right job for you!
