I have a Honda Accord 2001 it burnt the engine oil when ever i travel on a distance of 400miles but if its local running within town even if its covers 2000miles the engine oil will be as gage as it is....

can you specify what type of oil you use and the type of weather you drive in? the reason i ask is because normally for hondas the recommended viscocity is either 5w30 or in hot conditions 10w30 which is reasonable, but thicker is better in hot conditions. what happens, is that the oil gets to a certain temperature that it cannot hold it self together and begins to break down, which is why at longer distances it has a higher chance of breaking down. and the oil it self might not actually be getting burned. have you checked the oil physically? if im not mistaken, the gage on the car is not an oil level gauge, but rather an oil pressure gage. like i said earlier, after a certain temperature the oil begins to break down, meaning that it cannot hold the same amount of pressure which your car has to maintain in order to prevent a blown head gasket. pretty much, unless you have your oil light come on, which means the oil pressure in your engine has dropped too much, then dont worry about it too much. the best thing i could recommend is increasing your viscocity to 5w40 of you live in colder climates, or 10w40 if you live in a warmer climate. hope this helps, and if you need any questions, let me know

How do you take the cover off the break lights to change bulb

with the trunk open, there will be 2 or 3 screws holding the light assembly onto the car.. remove the screws and the assembly will pop out... then twist the socket in the back of the assembly and the light bulb will pop out

Break lights are not working on my 2001 ford expedition

You need to replace your brake light switch which is located on your brake pedal. The reason that the right and left are out and the middle isn't is because there are two sides to the switch for vehicles with three brakes lights. It is a very easy part to replace and is relatively inexpensive. Change that switch out and you will be good to go. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

ABS Light is ON?

Anti-Lock Break System is could be somthing as simple as a sensor out of adjustment or rust build up or a tooth missing on the exciter rings, now and then i have seen a broken wire right off the sensor. without actually looking at your car with either a scanner or at least a meter or your wheel sensors it can be hard to say any more. increase your following distance and make an appointment to get your car looked at.
