Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a collector's item car, 1990 ... the engine needs to be cleaned. What is the best way to do this myself? OR WOULD IT BE BEST TO TAKE IT IN AND HAVE A PRO DO IT? From what I'm reading this sort of thing can be "if-y".
Theres a good product called gunk .. you can pour it on or brush it on . instructions are on the tin and then you wash it back off again. works very well

Now start spraying that stuff over everything you want cleaned. Spray on heavily and NOT sparingly! You may need a second can if really grimy.
Wait at least 20 minutes to allow penetra tion.
Then turn on the garden hose and start washing.

You should not have any problem if you don't concentrate on the electrical components. What i mean is stay away from them as much as possible, and don't use alot of pressure wear you can blow things off. Myself i do it at home with a can of degreaser and a garden hose, If you do it at a car wash take a can of WD40 with you incase it stalls or wont start after you do it,WD40 displaces moisture, you would be better off doing it in your own driveway if your aloud too. You can wash any part you want. watch your paint on car, some of that degreaser can take off paint.

if its black smoke I would suspect a fuel issue. several things will cause this... need diagnosing. If its white smoke you could havea severe issue and it needs to be diagnosed. If its grey smoke you may have oil entering the cylinders and need it to be looked at. If the car is not in your name yet and you need a smog test its the previous owners responsibliity by law to fix this. You cant change ownership till it passes smog.

Ford Expeditions are known for getting low gas mileage. It is important to be aware of this before you buy one of these. If you
have already bought one, though, don't lose heart. There are some
things you can do to help your Ford Expedition get better gas mileage.
It won't get as good gas mileage as some other vehicles, but you can
improve on what you already have.
* Keep your Ford Expedition as empty as possible. The more items you store in your Expedition, the heavier the vehicle becomes. This causes you to use more gas.
* Go the speed limit. If possible, use the cruise control button.
* Increasing and decreasing the speed often causes you to use more gas.
* Use Techron fuel additive. This fuel additive will clean the fuel line, which will help your Ford Expedition run more smoothly and efficiently. Make sure the pressure in your tires is correct. You want your tires to have an equal amount of air in them at all times. Most gas attendants can check the air pressure for you at no charge.
* Use premium gas when at the pump. This will keep your engine clean and improve your overall gas mileage.
* Get a tune-up. Make sure they check all of your fuels and replace your oil every 3,000 miles. Not performing proper maintenance on your Ford Expedition will cause it not to perform up to its capability. If you want the best gas mileage, you have to get the vehicle up to its top performance.

Hope helps with this. Good luck.

ask the car dealer. I think any car service dealer can tell you which oil to use. They usually have a book with most cars and trucks listed (Autozone) and which type of oil you use depends on your type of driving and where you live. Such as mostly cold, hot, dusty etc.

take a volt meter and test at the gage to see if the voltage fluctuate when fuel level changes if it does you need to replace the float in the petrol tank.
