Hello and welcome to FixYa!
You may want to pick a mitsubishi chariot gearbox in the junkyard. They are perfect fit for your grandis, the only difference is they are from japan.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I was given a set of 215 70 R14 brand new tires and need to know if they will fit on a 1999 Dodge Caravan, the tires originally on it say 205 75 R14


Hi , tires recommended on that vehicle are 195/75R14 and 205/75R14. The tires you have are taller and wider than recommended. The taller may or may not rub fender wells going around corners, etc. The wider would be ok, but may not mount to your rims. Call a good tire shop and ask a mechanic there if it is feasable to use those tires on your existing rims. Mike

WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST TIRE BRAND FOR A 1995 TOYOTA CAMRY?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

On my Camry, I have Nexxens fitted.

Personally, I feel that these are fantastic tires. Not much road noise, they hold the highway pretty good, and they wear nicely.

Choosing Nexxan tires is my recomendation.

Thanks for using FixYa for assistance.

What is the light for that has the ! mark in it and how does I fix it.


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please alllow us to assist you.

The light you have illuminated (the ( ! ) light) is the 'low tire pressure' light.
One or more of your tires is below the recommended inflation pressure.

What you need to do:
Check all of the tire pressures (including the spare) with an accurate tire pressure gauge. The gauges that look like a pen, and fit in your pocket, are not accurate. Get a good gauge; one with a needle display. Set the tire pressures in accordance with the tire pressures that are printed inside the driver's side door area, on a sticker. One the tire pressures are reset, the light should go out automatically on the next startup or two.

Important note: If the light came on after you just had new tires fitted, and the inflation pressure is correct, your tire shop may have damaged the sensor.

If you need further assistance, please feel free to get back to me.

What tires can fit a 1999 ford expedition xlt


I believe it will fit. If you go to DiscountTires.com you can use their site for alternate tire sizes. Especially handy is the feature which shows you the Speedometer error for different size tires. The site will also show you recommended and popular substitute tire and wheel sizes.

The 1999 model had a 265/65/17 as an alternative. You may want to ask the Tire store you intend to use if they can reconfigure your Speedo to be accurate. Some of the Fords can be done electrically without changing Speedo gears.

I did something similar by going from a "60" series to a "65" series in the same width. On my Grand Marquis, I gained 5% mileage improvement, but have to watch Speedo until I get it reconfigured. I hope this helps to answer your questions.

Looking how to lower spare tire on toyota sienna van


Hello. Welcome to FixYa! Please allow us to assist you.

The procedure is as follows, to remove the spare tire from a 2WD Sienna:

Move the passenger seat as far forward as possible.
Move the passenger side middle seat back as far as possible.
Obtain your tire tool (the one you would use to remove the lugnuts)
Observe the carpeting behind the front passenger seat; you will see a small piece of carpet, like a small 'flap', that can be raised.
Under this flap is a small silver 'bolt'. Fit the lug wrench onto this bolt, and rotate it. This will lower the cable that raises the spare tire up under the area between the passenger front and rear seats.

Note: 4WD Siennas do not have any spare tires, as they came with 'run-flat' tires. Toyota did not fit a spare on the 4WD units.

Change front tire


Hi,

Before you start make sure you have the following:
- jack or any other instrument to lift the car
- tool to open the tire bolts
- spare tire
- if you ar eon the side of the road a warning triangle or any other object to make sure the oncoming traffic can see you.

step 1 - Open the tire bolts, remove all of them but two. The bolts left on the tire should be left quite loose (you should be able to open then with your hands).

step 2 - Position jack underneath car & lift car. VERY IMPORTANT to make sure the jack if proparly positioned & that the car is stable (for a car that has one wheel in the air...), so it won't fall on you. Don't stop lifting once the flat tire is in the air, remmber you have to fit in a new tire. Lift it so the new tire can fit in.

step 3 - Remove the last to bolts with your hands, while loosening secure the tire with one hand so it won't fall on you.

step 4 - Remove flat tire, while doing make sure not to damage the bolt which the tire sits on.

step 5 - Fit new tire in, screw 2 bolts by hand to secure it place.

step 6 - Screw rest of bolt by hand so secure tire in place. Make sure to "push" the tire as firm as possible to the car.

step 7 - Lower car. Do this slowly incase the tire isn't sitting properly.

step 8 - Tighten all the bolts properly, don't over tighten them, cause the next time you have to change the tire, you won't be able to open them.

step 9 - After driving a bit with the car, retighten the bolts, just to make sure nothing is loose.

This only sounds a bit complicated it's much simpler in practice then on paper.
Good luck & congretulations,
Eitan.
