Battery hold down first,rear brakes 2nd, brake fluid flush 3rd, cap rotor and wires 4th, drive belts 5th, trans fluid flush 6th, rear shocks 7th. fuel system flush? put a bottle of injector cleaner in your tank, run 2 tanks of high test thru your car and the fuel system will be fine. are you sure you NEED all these things?

Sounds like you have been talking to a very aggressive sales person!! Assuming the car is running halfway ok, & without seeing the condition of anything the most critical in terms of breakdown are:

  • belts
  • brakes
  • battery hold down
  • cap, rotor, wires, spark plug
  • trans, brake & fuel flush(by the way..no where in your maintenance manual does your car call for flushes of any kind!!) Go by what it says in your book

How do you change the rear brakes pads and a caliper on a 2004 XJ8?


you will need to 1st get a caliber turning set from harbor freight, it very cheap maybe 35-40 bucks...you need to raise both rear tires,crank the car put it in neutral so that the electric module releases the brakes from park position,then you disconnect the neg battery term.remove the tires, open the hood,remove the fluid reservoir cap,remove the calibers by the two bolts facing the inside,then remove the pads,then take the caliber tooland lock the two male nipples ends inside the female piston plates(u will see how the fit)now make sure the brace plate of the of the caliber tool is snug and begin turning the tool threaded side clockwise,and the bolt near the plate should be turned counter clockwise and each turn will turn the piston inside the caliber until its all the way flush with the inside of the caliber wall itself...then place the pads inside the caliber rotors are the same as removing from any other car,they may need a good tap with a hammer,some may have one alen head screw.But replace the rotors and pads.Once they are replaced,lower the car,reconnect the neg terminal,put the fluid cap back on,crank the car,pump the brakes and hold the center console lever upuntil the brake light goes off and u will hear the rear brake module engage.Hope this helps!

I just bought a 2006 Dodge Charger R/T, with a HEMI. I'm wondering if someone can tell me which maintenance things I should have taken care of (without trying to sell me unneccesary or un-needed costs. I'm...


I would recommend spark plugs every 30K, Trans. fluid and filter change every 60K, Brake fluid flush every 100K. I usually only flush the power steering fluid if yhere has been a component failure causing fluid contamination. Coolant should be flushed every 5 years or 100K, and rear differential fluid changed every 30K. I have several of these cars come in my shop with 200-300K miles. They can be very reliable if maintained properly.

No fluid to the front calipers


Hi Friend:

#1) Check to see if the Master Cylinder Rubber on the Cap is Not Calapesed.And fits Even in the Metel Cap.

#2) Fill master up to MAX Level, Bleed Brakes Start with the Passenger Rear,Then Drivers Rear,During the Bleeding Make Sure to Keep Master Cylinder Full off & On.Bleed each Cyling until you get good Clean Fluid from the Blleeder Valves. USE DOT-3 Fluid.And Make Sure theres no Air Left in The System on Each Cylinder

#3) After the Rears are done Next Go to Passengers Front Caliper ,Bleed The Same Way here.Of course you'll need 1-Person Pumping Pedal during Whole Process.

#4) If you Are Still NOT getting Fluid out Of your Bleeder Valves in Front.

#5) Making Sure your Masters Cylinder is Full.You'll see bleeder Valves On MASTER CYLINDER. Loosen bleeder valve while someone is Pushing Pedal to the Floor.The Tighten before The Pedal is Let off.Keep it to The Floor Each time you Open Bleeder Valve.

#6) Do both Sides.If you still are Not getting Fluid from the Front Brake Bleeder Valves. Then Your MASTER CYLINDER is BAD Or your FRONT Brake Pads are Worn Down so Far your Caliper Piston is Bottomed Out.

#7) If this is the case Replace Pads 1st ,If not Fluid Still .

#8) Replace the Master Cylinder.

#9) After Replacing Pads or and Both,Flush out your Fluid from the Complete System until you get Clean Fluid from All your Blleeder Valves. With No Air In The System As Well.

Please Let me Know How my Solution has Helped you by Voting on the Quality Of my Solution.

H2 2005 oil leak on drivers side shock area.


im not that familiar with hummers but it sounds like youve found the end of the transmission vent hose or possibly the front differential vent hose and they will have seepage of oil sometimes. however if its a constant oil drippage, then there could be a buildup of pressure inside tranny or rearend. if u follow the hose down to its beginning youll know if its the trans. or differential(rearend). it might be normal to see this fluid,or it could be too much fluid inside trany/rear.

What is included to do a tune up on a 1995 with a 3.0???


you need to change the plugs, change the gear oil for the trans (if it's manual trans) or if it's auto and you have a lot of miles and dont really know when the last time the trans was serviced, bring it to a shop and have them reccomend what you should do with the trans fluid. Change the serpentine belt, do an oil change, air filter change, inspect your brakes and rotors, change out the gear oil in the rear end, inspect and replace your shocks if needed upon inspection, flush and fill coolant system, Check and replace plug wires if neccesary, check and replace water pump if neccesary.

Maintenance Toyota Solara 2000


I have kept my cars running for a long time (250k+) by changing fluids as u are doing, and fixing things right away, not letting them develop into bigger problems, so u are destined to have your car for a long time! Many of the maintenance items u list are typically NEVER done by anyone, but they should be. Here's what I recommend from many years of maintaining my cars:
ps flush-50k or 5 yrs
brake fluid flush- every time u have brakes replaced.
Rad.drain, flush, fill -new coolant is said to be good for life of car, I would flush and refill 50/50 coolant water mix every 4 years.
Fuel Injection- I'll get flak over this, but I never do anything to the system, just change your fuel filter every 2 years, or 20k
Trans Flush-don't have it done if they '**** out' the fluid from the dipstick tube. I consider that method a waste. Have the pan removed to drain it, and replace the trans filter if equipped w/ one (u can't change the filter if u **** the fluid out of the dipstick.) Also, some vehicles have a magnet on the bottom of the trans. pan, which collects fine shavings from normal wear and tear (and pieces of metal from a trans. about to go bad). U need to drop the pan to clean this crud off the magnet.
oil and filter (good quality filter-cheap junky ones are much lighter than a quality one) every 3k or twice a year whichever comes 1st
I'll add: air filter- every 20k or once a year
check tire air pressure once a month, rotate tires for even wear (every 5k miles) Can I buy your well maintained car when u r ready to sell it?
