I have a 2010 exolorer. The throttle sensor has been replaced 3 times in 9 months. Wrench and engine light always come on. It has been replaced at Ford dealerships. Am I just unlucky???

Usually the wrench light is a light stating that you need your oil changed or your tires rotated, basic maintenance work on your car. To clear that light turn your car to the on position but not running. Push the gas and brake pedal at the same time and hold them. Wait until the wrench light goes away and then you can release the pedals. As for the throttle sensor the only advice I can give you is that to find out if it is a recall and if it is then take is to a certified Ford dealer and they will take care of your problem. I Hope this helps

I took my 2007 Hyundai Accent to the local dealer for an oil change and to also rotate & balance tires...well, I do have the need for new tires, one is in really bad shape but they wanted to charge me...

Because they want you to spend the money there.
There is plenty of tires that will fit one type of wheel, that has nothing to do with your engine light whatsoever.
Now, you might need to do some maintenance to your suspension in order to get it aligned so that your new tires dont get worn out prematturely.
Take it to a respectable tire shop in your town, forget the dealership.

Normal 20,000 mile service, what is done?

T Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} he 20,000 mile service is a minor service. This service generally involves an oil and filter change , tire rotation
and a safety inspection. While changing the oil, the mechanic will be performing visual inspections of the brakes, belts and hoses inspecting for any fluid leaks,, listening for any abnormal noises, and paying attention to any irregularities in the operation of the vehicle.
If you have your service at the dealership, have them check and perform any recalls on the vehicle.
Possible Repairs Needed at the 20,000 Mile Service It's not uncommon for your vehicle to need a brake pad replacement at this mileage, and on some vehicles the tires may need replacement.

  • We recommend considering replacement of the air filter every year or 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
Why this happens
  • If oil has contaminated the air filter, it should be replaced. Oil contamination may indicate a problem with the PCV system.
  • Air filters will need replacement more often in vehicles driven in dusty and sandy areas.

Dealer wants to charge 495.00 for a transmission fluid change

No this cant be right..
If it is as simple as a oil change and rotating your tyres it should not cost you more than AU$200 MAX! look at it this way.
An oil filter would cost around the AU$20 mark, and thats a pretty good oil filter.
Now you can buy 5-6 litres of oil for AU$30 and thats reasonable oil.
A sump plug washer [if they charge you] AU$2 dollars.
and labour AU$40 all up thats AU$92, and the currancy in the states is stronger than Australia's dollar.
Now to rotate a few tyres.. any monkey could do that... That should add another AU$100 MAXIMUM.
all up AUD$192 and thats not even being generous.
I dont know were they got that figure from, but believe me. you could get that done in under $200 easy!
Hope this helps.

Fuel system recall

a carfax will show excatly what the dealer saystem says that it has been done.. if you see the reinforcements on the rail then it has been completed.. the other one is the floor shifter interlock rod.... have any dealer run the vin number again they can tell you the date and dealer that did the repairs.... if he ever took it in for any type of service at the dealer even a oil change they have to repair it at no charge maybe he just dont remember it getting done.. the wife or family member may have used the car... but once you have the date and dealer that did it work it may help jog some memory..if the rail is leaking and the repairs are shown to have ben done you can purchase the repair parts on your own from a dealer CADJ7902 is the rail package..

2004 Mazda3 - 135k - engine seized up with no oil but changed reg

I would think whoever replaced the engine oil also did not tighten the oil drain plug,,and you can bet the dealership or garage that done this,,will squirm their way out of this one if they can.
Good luck buddy!!

Check lug nut torque - they may not have tightened them properly (it could be too little or too much torque).
