If its been two years and you love your car a trans service would'nt hurt. Number one reason transmissins fail is due to failure to service fluid. Other than that recommend a cabin air filter if it has'nt been changed in a year.

SOURCE: I have a Toyota corolla

I have seen this problem countless times, and no computer can give you the answer, The problem is your ECT. The Engine Coolant Temp sensor. It tells the computer what temp the engine is at and it uses this input to regulate the fuel. When the engine is cold, the fuel is increased to act as the choke for easier starting. As the engine warms up, the fuel is cut back. When the sensor locks cold, the computer runs the engine in choke mode all the time, sending the fuel ecom\nomy down the toilet.

SOURCE: just bought 07' accord with 31, 000 miles and oil

Guess the guys at the dealership forgot to reset your oil chage light. Check your oil to make sure its not black. If its at a good brownish color then get to your oil life screen on your car and i belive you hold down the check mark button till the oil light resets (30sec) or so.

What is the purpose of oil cap on valve cover


That is where you put the oil when you are low on oil or when you an oil change. When you open the hood you should see a oil dipstick. Make sure the car has been off for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Have a clean paper towel and remove the dipstick. make sure its the dipstick if you have an automatic transmission. trans fluid is red in color oil will be golden to dark black depending on how often you change the oil. wipe the dipstick off and at the end you will see a full mark near the end. Replace the dipstick back into the tube you removed it from and pull it out again, check the end where it says full. If there is oil up to the full mark your good, if not add oil through the oil cap hole in valve cover top. re-wipe the dip stick and check to see if full. Add oil as needed. If you keep up with your oil changes as required depending on the oil requirements. 10w30 regular oil is every 3,000 miles. Castrol synthetic oil is every 21,000 miles. Use a good oil filter. Consult your auto parts dealer.

I want to know when to do the serving of my Toyota Camry 1998. When to change the oil


Most import vehicle manufactures recommend changing oil at 5-7 thousand miles.When you have a wide range of temp as in the Northern United States, you need to have the oil changed 3-5 thousand miles. The reason is that the oil collects condensation after it has been up to operating temps, and shut off. There is some test that are being checked as to if the hot and humid temps have the same effect as in the winter months. I believe, it should be changed every 3 months and 3 thousand miles, which ever occurs first. I have used Synthetic oil in all of my vehicles, both cars and SUV's and change them at 5,000 miles. One of my Explorer's has passed 500,000 miles and the other one has 268,000. My cars also have Syn oil, is over 232,000 and no Mechanical problems in any of them. I hope this helps you with your question. Craig

Please advise me proper maintenance for 2007 jeep liberty sport 36000 mile. last service (34000) it was a list of supposed required stuff to do. just want to know what is needed and not. thanks


I don't know how much maintenace you have done in the past. Besides the normal inspections of the brakes, fluid levels and oil changes they do recomend changing the spark plugs and the axle fluid at 30,000 miles and adjusting your parking brake cable. hope this helps....

The oil light is blinking on a 98 honda accord and the oil is black when i check it....what does this mean?


Black oil needs to be changed immediately. It's possible that even if the oil level is full, it's so thin and worn that it's tripping your Oil Light due to lack of oil pressure.

There is no problem with the car at all i just want to keep the car in great condition so i was just wondering what regular maintenance is the most important and needs to be done regularly besides the oil...


New timing belt and serpentine belt every 50,000 miles. New filter with every oil change. Replace the air filter when it gets so that you can't see diffuse light through it. Watch fluid levels. Have the CV joints and rubber boots checked every 20,000 miles or so. Check with your transmission servicer for fluid and filter changes. Replace platinum spark plugs every 100,000 miles along with new spark plug wiring. Check the codes if the check engine light comes on. Replace the fuel filter ever 20,000 miles--more often if poor fuel quality.
