What is the normal fuel comsumption for a nissan navara

when you say it seems to be using too much, that is just a feeling
what you have to do is fill it right up and press the trip meter on the speedo
then you drive/use the vehicle normally until you are around 1/4 tank on the gauge
fill it right up again and record the reading on the trip meter
reset the trip meter and use normally again
repeat the process say for 4 tank fills recording each trip distance
then you will see what the fuel consumption is for example 40 liters for 400 klms is 10 liters per 100 klms or 20 galls for 200 miles is 10 gallons per 100 miles
the requirement to record distance and fuel put in will give you an accurate consumption over traffic, driving and atmospheric conditions from there you can ask --is this consumption figure around right for the car?

I have replacing a lot of parts on the coolant system. Today I drove approx 8 miles round trip and when I stopped the reservoir was boiling.

Hi Brenda,first check the thermostat,could be not opening all the way,or your water pump is bad and not circulating to keep engine cool.You can do more looking,go to wear water pump is and see if you see coolant any where or leaks on pavement below while parked.

Transmission oil change, how often?

I recommend every 50,000 miles under normal conditions.
If you do a lot of short trips, 'stop & go', pull a trailer, or live in a hot or dusty location, change every 30,000 miles.

I have a 2007 Jetta with 40,500 miles and just noticed that the cooling fans remained on for over 6 minutes after a short trip to Walmart(6 miles roundtrip) . I have not noticed it before.

that is normal after shutting the car off. Do you change your thermostat and coolant every two years? If not its time to do so. Then the fans will not run so long next time

Jiffy lupe said i need engine flush for my 2002 Jeep Liberty

No, this is not normal. if you have coolant or water leaking into the engine piston chambers, you will need a head gasket not an engine flush. if you open the oil cap to add oil to the engine and you see a lot of gunk under the cap, then its time for that flush. I would be concern about the more serious issue and that is that there is coolant or water leaking into the combustion chambers. this is a sign of a bad head gasket.

please rate and god bless..

Maintenance Light - water loss?

Whenever the AC is on, moisture (humidity) is removed from the interior of the car, and this moisture becomes liquid, and is drained out via a tube that comes from the AC box under the dash., This is a normal occurance.

The MAINT light flashes at 4,500 miles, to remind you an Oil Change is due, and the light will stay on at 5,000 miles, since the last reset of the Maint lamp. The lamp must be reset after every oil change, it does not reset itself.

Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa to get help on you problem.
